Peace Lutheran Church (Evangelical Lutheran Church in America) offers two services each week that reflect the Gospel of Jesus Christ with an emphasis on the teachings and perspectives of Martin Luther and the Lutheran tradition on the Christian faith.
Saturday Night CAYA Worship Service 5:30 - 6:45 PM
Saturday's "Come As You Are" service offers contemporary praise music, a children's message and sermon presented using MS Power Point. The worship music is driven by Pastor Tim Larson on the guitar, Matt Bono on the bass and/or piano, Kelsey Larson on flute and Jim Connors on the drums. Towards the conclusion of the service, children are invited to come up on the stage to participate in playing along with the band. Following the service is fellowship.
Sunday Morning "Now The Feast & Celebration" 10:00 - 11:30 AM
Sunday's service offers a traditional Lutheran Liturgy. Again this service is presented using Power Point with programs also available. "Now the Feast" is a liturgical service -- meaning it follows the ancient organization of the earliest Christian church services. The Word is shared and the Bread is broken every week. We invite questions and and individual thinking about the Bible and the meaning of faith. We also believe that love is the basis for Godly law and Christian freedom. Hospitality is a first expression of God's grace -- so we want visitors to feel comfortable and welcome. Following the service is fellowship. Nursery is available.
Taize' services are offered during the season of Epiphany, Lent., & Thanksgiving.
