Important Opportunities in the Community Coming Up!

There are a number of events coming up in the wider Lutheran community well worth your consideration. If you are interested in attending and in need of financial support to make your participation possible, please feel free to contact Pastor Carolyn. We don’t want money to be the barrier that prevents anyone from doing the ministry to which they are called!

MLK Day of Service

“Not everybody can be famous but everybody can be great because greatness is determined by service…You only need a heart full of grace and a soul generated by love.”
—Martin Luther King Jr.

As we near the annual celebration of the life of Martin Luther King Jr. we would like to honor him with a day of service. This year we have looked internally to members of our own congregation who could use some help. This may include:
1. housework,
2. maintenance, or
3. yard work.

We’re Reconciling in Christ… Now What?

Last March, members of Peace Lutheran Church adopted a Welcome Statement that specifically calls out our desire to welcome people “of diverse sexual orientations and gender identities…including those who are gay, lesbian, and bisexual; and those who are transgender, non-binary, and gender nonconforming.” On the last Sunday in January, we’ll celebrate our commitment. Let’s begin with a conversation about how we got here, what it means and where we are going with this new outreach effort. Join us at 10 a.m. on December 10, January 7, and January 21.
