Carol Sing Along

Celebrate the joy of the season at Peace Lutheran Church’s event, “The Loveliest Christmas Songs.” Join us on December 10 from 5-6 pm for an evening filled with the warmth of community and the beauty of timeless melodies.

Potluck 11/19

Potluck and Learning Resumes
“Food and…The End of the World!”
Sunday, November 19, after worship at 11:30 am
Our potluck and learning routine has been a bit irregular in recent weeks…but this week potluck is back! We’ll gather for food and discussion on the topic “Waiting at the End of the World.” We’ll learn a bit about big theology words like “apocalypse” and “eschatology,” and see how those ideas might offer practical guidance and comfort in a world that sometimes feels like it is falling apart. You re invited to bring your questions, and food to share, if you can. 

All Saints Sunday 2023

All Saints Sunday Worship & Potluck – November 5
On All Saints Sunday, we worship and remember the saints who have gone before us. You are invited to add names of those we can remember and honor to the Book of Life in the Sanctuary through October 29 (or to email names to to be added).
Following worship, we will have a potluck lunch, and you are invited to bring a dish to share that connects you to saints of blessed memory. If you would like to bring a recipe, we will make copies to share with one another to join in remembering and honoring our loved ones.

Reformation Sunday 2023

Reformation is Coming!
This Sunday, October 29, you are invited to wear red or other fire colors…and to join in worship at 10 am in person or online, where Peace welcomes new members and blesses Bibles for the coming year of study. If you have your own devotional Bible, you may bring it for a blessing. And we will also have new Bibles for all ages ready if we can gift you one for your journey with sacred scripture.
We will also be Welcoming New Members in worship, and celebrating with them at a luncheon following the service. 

Reformation Movie Event

All are invited to our Reformation Movie Event screening of Luther (2003). In the style of one of our favorite local movie house, this will be an interactive movie event with props provided (and snacks, too). You can throw crumpled indulgences at Johann Tetzel…ring wedding bells for Martin and Katie…boo the villains…cheer the heroes…and maybe even join Squire George and put on a disguise to hide from danger…

Potluck and Lutheranism 10/1

This Sunday… Food and… a chat about Lutheranism & Peace
You may have noticed that Sundays after worship lately, there is often food and…something else…a potluck lunch and conversation topic. We are working to make this a consistent part of our weekly schedule. Some weeks, perhaps we will just have food and informal fellowship. Some weeks there will be a guest leader or formal presentation on a topic…or a service opportunity.
