Peace Lutheran Vacation Bible School June 17-20, 2019

“A brand NEW summer day camp program for your children and their friends comes to Peace on June 17-20.  This year’s theme is Bigfoot Prints to Follow and is based on Matthew 16:24. VBS runs from 9 a.m. to noon and is open to children age 3 through grade 5 (in the fall).


Volunteers from our church (and staff from Camp Phillip) will bring you all the fun of a summer camp without ever leaving church.  From the opening to the closing program, you will enjoy activities such as adventure, crafts, God’s Word, recreation, singing, snacks and stories.  Each activity includes important lessons about who exactly Jesus Christ is and the various ways that we can praise him in response to what he has done for us.  Hope you can come!”

Peace Pictorial Church Directory

Participate in your Church Directory

It’s time for a new church directory!  And that’s a good thing.  An updated church pictorial directory is an excellent tool for our pastors, our church leaders, and our newer members.  Plus, with a church this size, having pictures of all of our members makes it a little easier to get to know each other.
Your pastoral staff and leadership is hoping for full participation from our membership.  And we are trying to make the process as easy as possible.  Simply follow this link ( to sign up online. Or you can connect personally with one of our volunteers after each of the worship services in March.  Each appointment session will run 10 minutes per family.  (please sign up for just one session – we promise, 10 minutes will be enough time!)  The photo sessions will run through the first three weeks in April. There have been a few dates in May added to accommodate our families with college students or for some reason are unable to make the available dates in April. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to email us at or you can text/call Sara Brehmer at 262-707-2488.

Idols You Never Knew You Had – Sundays @ 8:45am (Sept. 9,16,23,30)

What is an idol?  While we might initially think of golden calves, graven images, and gods named Baal or Buddha, would we agree that an idol is really anything that is more important to us than God?  If so, then idolatry isn’t just a primitive practice from ancient cultures, but it’s a real danger to modern-day Christians. And maybe, just maybe, we have idols in our lives that capture our hearts and absorb our time more than we realize.

In this four-week series, Idols We Never Knew We Had, we’ll seek to identify some of those sneaky present-day idols and, by the power of God’s Word, avoid the spiritual dangers that accompany them.

Day: Sundays (September 9, 16, 23, 30)
Time: 8:45 a.m.
Location: Fellowship Hall
