PEACE LUTHERAN'S PASTOR
Reverend Tim Larson

 
"Pastor Tim" has served at
Peace Lutheran since 2000.  He 
is an experienced pastor and an accomplished musician.


Dear Friends,

       Peace Lutheran is an intimate and welcoming ministry located in one of the most culturally diverse neighborhoods in the Detroit Metro Area.  The Lutheran tradition has long taught that authentic Christian faith is not bound to one culture or another -- but given by God to all people as gift of baptism, nourished through the Scriptures and Holy Communion, and strengthened by the Spirit.   All people are given gifts to serve God in the world (some different than others) but we all have the same Lord.  Therefore the authentic Christian church across the world is multicultural, multiracial, multi-talented, inter-generational -- faithful individuals that together create loving communities built upon the Bible and binded by love that are greater than the sum of the parts.  To reflect this diversity, Peace Lutheran has partnered and share our a facility with five quite different congregations that maximize the ministry that can done out of one church building.  We praise God that all this can be accomplished with the help of the Holy Spirit.  We also share our building with a number of community groups dedicated to doing good in our community.
       Every year Peace Lutheran sets goals to keep us on the right path.  Our vision for 2010-2011 is to create a daily educational ministry for adults with special needs, provide more engaging worship each week for our congregation and neighbors, and raise awareness of the the moral and ethical dimensions of our planet's energy and ecological crises and the most appropriate solutions.
       Interested in joining this ministry of in body of Christ?  There are six Christian worshiping communities here cooperating to meet the varied spiritual needs of a diverse neighborhood.  I invite you to share in building-up the kingdom of God together under one roof at Peace Lutheran.

       Blessings to you all,    Pastor Tim

All darkness is fading from the land.
It's by faith that we know it, by faith that we feel it;
The whole world was made by God's command!

This love that God graciously gives to us.

You are the hope for the whole human race! Chorus:




Martin Luther’s Morning Prayer & Evening Prayers   
©1994 by Tim Larson.   All Rights Reserved.

Play: 

1.  We thank you heav’nly Father
Through Jesus Christ your Son
For watching us throughout the night
And saving us from harm.
We pray that you will keep us
From evil and from sin.
May all our living please you,
And all our thoughts within.

Chorus:
For in your able hands O Lord
We do commend to you
Our bodies and our Spirits
In everything we do.
Send your Holy Angels
To protect us every day
So the wicked power of Satan
May be driven far away.

2.  We thank you heavenly Father
Through Jesus Christ your son
For graciously defending us
Today and evermore.
We ask that you’ll forgive us
For all the wrongs we’ve done
And guard us in our sleeping
‘Til the final vic’try’s won.  (Chorus:)

(Last time)
Amen!  It shall be so!


THE BENEDICTION
by Nathan Schleicher



Sending forth God’s Love
Sending forth God’s Love
As we leave this place;
As we leave this place;
From our comforts here
From our comforts here
We are sent with grace.
We are sent with grace.

May the Lord bless you
and keep you.  
May his face shine upon you and be gracious to you.  
May he look upon you with favor and give you peace…
and give you peace,
and give you peace,
so go in peace
so go in peace.

Go make a dff'rence,
We can make a diff'rence
Go make a diff'rence in the world
Go make a diff'rence
We can make a diff'rence
Go make a diff'rence in the world


1.  We are the salt in the earth,
Called to let the people see
The love of God in you and me
We are the light of the world,
Not to be hidden, but be seen
Go make a diff'rence in the world.  Chorus


2.  We are the hands of Christ,
Reaching out to those in need
The face of God for all to see
We are the spirit of hope,
We are the voice of peace.  Chorus


3.  So let your love shine on,
let it shine for all to see.
Go make a diff'rence in the world.
And the spirit of Christ
will be with us as we go.
Go make a diff'rence in the world.  Chorus
