All About Peace

Library

Faith & Learning Opportunities


Peaceís mission statement-To bring people into contact with the Gospel, and help them grow in their relationship with Christ-captures the essence of what happens here throughout the year.

Worship
Together in worship, we hear the good news of Godís love for all people proclaimed. Come and be fed and nourished by the Word of God and by the sacrament of Holy Communion. Saturday: 5:00 pm and Sunday: 8:30 am and 11:00 am.

Sunday School for all Ages
Peace offers Sunday School for all ages. The Education Hour starts at 9:45 am on Sundays.

Bible Study
If you are looking for in-depth and meaningful Bible exploration, the midweek Bible study group would be perfect for you. This faithful group led by Pastor Dave meets every Wednesday at 10:00 am to examine the Bibleís historical context and its meaning in our lives. Feel free to come and go as your schedule allows. See more evening opportunities below.

Evening Opportunities
Several times during the year classes are offered in the evening for those who cannot make it to the day-time Bible Study. Some sessions meet once a week for several weeks. Pastor Dave leads a once-monthly Bible Study on a different topic on the third Tuesday at 7:15 p.m. Examples of the topics for evening Bible Study have included Revelation, Lutheranism, and the Psalms. Call the church office for more information.

Meal in the Upper Room
You are invited to the annual Maundy Thursday celebration of the "Meal in the Upper Room." Christians now refer to this celebration as "The Last Supper." Jesus and his disciples came to Jerusalem, rented the "Upper Room" and partook of a meal using symbolic foods to tell the story of Passover, the deliverance of the Jewish people from their slavery in Egypt. A sign up is offered prior to the event.

Vacation Bible School
Each summer Peace offers a week-long Vacation Bible School for the children to learn Bible stories, sing songs, make crafts, and enjoy some fun time together.

The Lutheran
Members also receive The Lutheran, the monthly magazine of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. It is a great resource for personal devotion and for engaging current issues through the lens of faith.
