Virtual Advent by Candlelight 2020

Advent by Candlelight worship service – Prepare my heard, Lord Jesus!

Join our Facebook Group! – If you are on Facebook, join our group, Women of Peace – Advent by Candlelight. We plan on leading a virtual devotional series all through Advent. Check in for discussions, videos, and that fellowship that we all need to encourage us throughout the Advent Season.

Please feel free to share our service with other women, family and friends who may not have an Advent by Candlelight service this year. Or, as you feel comfortable, consider inviting a small group of family or friends to view the service together with you in your home. Also, check out our table in the Gathering Space, for printed service materials to use, as you view the service online and for daily devotions.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Julie Ehlers at or 262-223-8040. If you are unable to view the service and devotions virtually, please contact the church office 262-673-5610 for help.

Sunday School Registration

Will begin the year online with enhanced resources from Northwestern Publishing House for grades Pre-K – grade 4. These resources will be more substantial than the ones provided at the end of last year and will be distributed via email to all registered students on a weekly basis. There will be plenty of materials for parents to share with their children at home. We will evaluate the situation month to month, with a goal of restarting face to face classes as soon as it’s determined feasible and safe to do so.

Please CLICK HERE to register your child.






Dear Peace Members,

Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers has signed an Executive Order mandating face coverings “whenever you are indoors or in an enclosed space, other than a private residence.”  This means all Wisconsin residents who attend a church service will be expected to wear masks unless they have a medical condition that prevents them from doing so.  Pastors who are preaching or presiding at worship services won’t need to wear a face covering as long as they are more than 6 feet away from other individuals.

Since this mandate is in effect August 1 through the month of September, our upcoming worship services will be impacted . 

Your congregational leadership understands that this is a controversial topic and there are members of Peace who stand firmly on opposite sides of the issue. Reasonable people can debate how effective masks are.  Reasonable people can have friendly debates over whether or not the government guidelines are too restrictive or not aggressive enough.  However, this much is not debatable: our Lord directs us to obey our government unless that government would ever ask us to do something that goes against God’s Word.  In fact, that was well covered a few weeks ago in worship focusing on the 4th Commandment (here’s a link to the service and Pastor Waldshmidt’s sermon – 

Let us all remember that brothers and sisters in Christ can disagree, even disagree with friendly and reasonable debate. Let’s also remember that there are matters that are much more important than mask wearing or not mask wearing. May our language and our actions express the love that God has first shown to us in Christ—as well as the unity that we enjoy in Him.  We who are so dearly loved by the Lord — together let’s agree that this debatable issue about masks will not divide us, take our hearts and minds off of Christ, or rob us of our unity.    

Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things – Philippians 4:8

A few additional notes:

Peace still offers online worship for those who are not comfortable attending in-person worship (you can find a link to the latest service on the home page)

A limited amount of homemade and disposable masks will be available for worshipers, but we encourage you to use your own if you are able.

If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to reach out to one of the Pastors.


Jesus Bless and Keep You!

Your Peace Leadership
