Pastor's Update - Peace in Jesus! 

Dear friends: 
Who do you trust? We teach our children to trust us and then disappoint them. As adults we recall moments when those we trusted failed us. Honest reflection also reveals times we were trusted and didn’t follow through.
 
The lessons for this Sunday are all about trust. We’ll experience the polar opposites of trusting people vs. trusting the Lord. We’ll review a loving God’s lavish gift of grace for us in our time of need. We’ll hear and see our Savior proclaiming that grace which we share in every time we gather to hear and trust his wonderful Word!
 
All for us a worship with our Peace Family, Sunday at 9:00 a.m.
 
A special initial presentation by our guests from the WELS Commissions on Lutheran Schools will follow immediately after our service.
 
Glorify the Lord with me,
Pastor Mischke
 
Peace in Jesus!
