December Worship Series

Advent,  coming from the Latin word meaning to come, is a season of preparation and anticipation. The Church looks for the coming of her Savior in this threefold advent: his coming in the flesh, his return in judgment, and his daily coming in Word and Sacrament. The Church encompasses all these facets of the season in the single word that defines Advent worship: “Come!” Throughout the prayers, verses, songs, and lessons that single word is our invitation, our anticipation, our sure and certain hope. Come, Lord Jesus!

December 1     He Is Coming!  Prepare!

December 8     He Is Coming!  Repent!

             December 15   He Is Coming!  Persevere!

December 22   He Is Coming!  He Is God with Us; Immanuel!

Join Us for Christmas Worship

Christmas Worship at Peace!

God looked at our broken world and loved it. He sent his Son to bring God’s love and forgiveness to people in desperate need of both. The child born in a Bethlehem stable came to live for us, die for us, and rise from the dead to be out Savior. Join us to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ! Our worship will feature an inspiring message, favorite Christmas carols and a place to fine God’s word-changing love.  A Savior has been born to you, he is Christ the Lord.

Lutheran Military Support Group

Lutheran Military Support Group

Peace Lutheran Church has joined the LMSG supporting our veterans beginning with the addition of an LMSG Liaison, Mike Lippert who will report to the Board of Youth and Family. We will soon be adding an LMSG Support Group as well. Please CLICK HERE to sign up for the support group.

Mission Statement

Lutheran Military Support Group is a non-profit organization providing Christ-centered support to military service members, veterans, and their families.

LMSG Organizational Concept and Design

LMSG is an incorporated WI nonprofit, run by a Board of Evangelical Lutheran (WELS/ELS) Veterans from all branches of service, in several states.

The group is a national level organization, designed to have national reach, but local impact. We are designed to be both an auxiliary to WELS Military Services, and the ELS Christian Service Board in their support of active duty service members, and an independent organization supporting the needs of our military veterans and our “military families” of both active duty members and veterans. Further information about the LMSG can be found at http://lutheranmilitary.org/

 

Trunk or Treat

Trunk ’n Treat will be held on SUNDAY, OCTOBER 27TH from 2-3 pm. This is a great way for Peace members to not only get visitors from our community onto our campus, but also to open the door to sharing God’s gospel message with them.  You can donate candy to help defray the cost and support this outreach event!  Just place candy in the donation bins that are around church and school, throughout the month of October. We are expecting even more visitors, so any help is very appreciated! 

Sign-up sheet is in the Gathering Space to help out, or set up your car as a “treat spot!” If you would like to help,  please contact Jen Agenten with questions or to help out: 262-573-1588 or

Welcome Home Worship Series

Read through Scripture and count the times it refers to believers as “brothers and sisters.” The Holy Spirit uses terms like these to help us think of each other as family.

In this 6-week worship series, we will look at how our Father knits us together in love and unity into a spiritual family. We will see the benefits of being part of this family. In the Church, Christ has given us a better home.

We hope you will be able to join us as we strengthen the ties that have bound us together as family members in Christ!

October 20 – Our Need for Christian Community

October 27 – The Lost Are Now Found

November 3 – You Are Free to Be Yourself

November 10 – Where You Are Perfectly Safe

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
