Communion Learning Day

The Mystery of Holy Communion -Intergenerational Learning Day May 21
From time to time we pause to reflect and celebrate the gift and mystery of Holy Communion. Sometimes people are preparing to join the feast for the first time…and others may just be ready to think again about the meaning of this sacrament. In Godly Play at 9:30 am on May 21, the circle will hear the story of The Good Shepherd and World Communion. Following worship, we will have a session of bread baking…sacristy exploring…and story sharing to deepen our wonder and joy about this gift from God. Interested in preparing for first communion? Excited to keep learning about this meal you have been joining for years? Curious about joining the team of bread bakers for future Sunday services? All are welcome.

Lord of Life

Joining with our Lord of Life Neighbors

As many of you know, Lord of Life Lutheran Church – our nearest ELCA neighbor – voted last spring to conclude their ministry together within the next year. They are now coming to the end of that time, and there are a few ways we can be with them in this transition and in looking to the future:


Summer Camps

It’s that time of year…to start thinking about summer camp opportunities with Cross Trails Ministry! Based in the Hill Country of southwestern Texas, Cross Trails Ministry offers summer camp and retreats to thousands each year.

HCCM Needs

Hill Country Community Ministries (HCCM ) served 91,000 neighbors in need for 2022.  The pantry has a continuous need for hygiene products.  Please prayerfully consider adding to your grocery cart : shampoo, lotion, tooth paste, bar of soap, or toilet paper and bring those to Peace. Another way of giving is through a monetary donation.

Thanks for your consideration to our neighbors in need.    

Covid Risk Low

We are so grateful that COVID community levels returned to Low quickly after the holidays – most of all because we know it means that fewer of our neighbors are sick and that our health care workers are less burdened. It also means our on campus protocols are much more flexible, for which we also give thanks.
