Pastor's Update - Peace in Jesus! 

Dear friends:

 

The hurricane is coming. You have a day to evacuate. Look around your home. What do you take. What could you not bear to live without?

Jesus entertains the question and endures the sinful pride of a rich young man who was certain he was good enough for heaven. He quickly learned that he hadn’t even survived the first of the Lord’s commands. His life was filled with “treasures” all working to keep him from fearing, loving and trusting the Lord above all else. What keeps you from putting your Lord and Savior first? How do we say thank you for saving us from ourselves and our treasures?

 

We’ll learn and grow in grace and gratitude as we gather for worship with our Peace family, Sunday at 9:00 a.m.

 

Glorify the Lord with me!

 

Pastor M

 

 

  • Fall Opportunities to be in the Word!

A fresh season of Family Bible Hour has begun with Sunday School for children age 3-Grade 8, Teen Bible Study and Adult Bible Study.

A reading of the New Testament epistle of First Peter is our focus for the Sundays of September and October. Our hope is to begin at or before 10:30 and always be done by 11:00 a.m. It’s a great time to dig into God’s saving Word with your fellow believers!

Our first Family Sunday School Day is planned for Sunday, November 4. On that morning the Sunday School children will be singing in morning worship. Following our service there will be time in God’s Word, activities and lunch for everyone!

 

  • “Six Sentences to Share about Salvation”

On the Mondays of October we’re reviewing the major Bible doctrines about Jesus and our salvation. As faith grows through the power of the Holy Spirit, we’ll also gain confidence to share what it means to be a Christian with those who may simply ask us, or even challenge our simple trust in Jesus!

       We meet each Monday in October, 6:30 – 7:45 pm. It’s not too late to join us!

 

  • Mission & Ministry Sunday – October 21!

A special morning of worship is coming for our Peace Family. As part of our worship, Sunday, October 21, we will view To the Ends of the Earth, the newest movie produced by WELS Evangelism. As we watch Paul and Silas share the good news about Jesus in the ancient city of Philippi, we’ll take time for reflection on what God the Holy Spirit planned and carried out with the sharing of his saving gospel!

 

Our Mission & Ministry celebration will carry through to our worship, Sunday, October 28.

            

“You will be my witnesses!”

Yes, you read that correctly! An Easter Egg hunt is being planned for our Easter for Kids event next April. Many volunteers are needed as we plan this community event. We are looking for help to fill eggs, hide eggs and supervise the actual hunting. Special Resurrection Eggs will be found and will help to tell the Easter Story. If you are interested in helping with this first time event, please join us for a planning meeting on Monday, Nov. 5 at 6:30 p.m. For questions, ask Pastor, Kate Pleuss or Lisa Koester.

Mornings With Mommy

Thursday, October 25 is the date for our next Mornings with Mommy session.  The sessions are open to children form ages 0-5, runs from 10-11 am with a $5 fee per family.  We all have been noticing how the leaves on the trees are changing and showing their bright colors.  Leaves will be our story theme.  Our stories and activities will all center around fall and leaves.  We hope each of you will try to interest someone to attend.  We guarantee everyone will enjoy it, children and Moms alike.
