"Sharing God's love by serving our community and our world."
Scripture is filled with references regarding the importance of believers worshiping together. Peace welcomes all who believe or are seeking. Peace celebrates Open Communion the first and third Sundays of every month, and all who believe are welcome to participate in remembrance of Christ.
Worship music is a blend of traditional, gospel, contemporary and more! Screen projection makes it easy to follow the service and lift our voices to sing Godʼs praises. Each Sunday we profess our faith through the Apostleʼs Creed and the Lordʼs Prayer. We share each otherʼs joys during the “Yea God!” segment of our services, and welcome requests for special prayers.
Jesus loves children and so do the members of Peace. We want parents to know how much we love to see them worship with their children. Worshiping together shows children that worship is important. Each service has a short childrenʼs message called JAM (Jesus and Me), presented by one of our members. Children are encouraged to participate in services as ushers, greeters, and servers, alongside their parents. Special music is a time when members of all ages are encouraged to share their gifts of voice or instrument during the service. This gives members an opportunity to share the talents God has blessed them with.
We have a Childrenʼs Choir for children up to 6th grade. Practice times vary and are announced in the weekly bulletin and published in the church calendar.
Our Adult Choir is for teens through senior citizens, and sings once or twice per month. Anyone who loves to sing is encouraged to be part of this choir. Practices are Sunday mornings at 8am on the Sundays that the choir sings.
Peace Lutheran Church is a vibrant community of people who graciously share their gifts and talents.
Volunteering as greeters, ushers, and readers, our members are what makes Peace special.
Our greeters welcome you to join us in this journey of faith as we dwell on Godʼs word. Greeters are usually some of the first members that visitors meet.
Our men, women and children hand out the bulletins, help with the seating and collect the offering during worship services.
Our young people who light and extinguish the altar candles during the worship service are called acolytes. All youth in seventh - ninth grades participate as part of their confirmation training. Being able to serve the Lord and being a part of Peace in this manner helps to prepare them for service as they enter their adult lives.
Our lay people read the scripture lessons of the day. Thanks be to God.
After worship service we offer Peace Cafe' coffee hosted by members of the congregation. The goal is to make the fellowship experience comfortable and enjoyable.
Our Hospitality Team also provides support for funeral receptions, luncheons, Easter breakfast, Fall Rally Day (start of Sunday School ) and Cupcake Sunday, celebrating members' birthdays and anniversaries.
