Purpose

We firmly believe that God gathers His disciples, with their passions, hearts and giftedness, to live out His purpose in their daily lives. Through the month of May we are diving into our purpose as disciples of Jesus - to proclaim the Gospel, make disciples and move the mission forward – and how we can do that collectively as Peace Lutheran Church, and how we do that in our homes, relationships and daily lives.

Holy Week 2022

Holy Week observances can be traced all the way back to early centuries of the church. As church history progressed, the Church Year or Liturgical Calendar, as we know it today, was fully developed. But before we had the Advent or Lenten season, the events of Holy Week were given prominence in the early church. These events are the basis of our faith! Christ instituted the new covenant and the Lord’s Supper on that first Maundy Thursday. Scripture was ultimately fulfilled on Good Friday as the ultimate sacrifice was made with Christ’s death. Then came Christ’s resurrection on that first Easter Sunday… and the rest, as they say, is history.

Sacred Rhythms: Ancient Habits for Today's World

In the Church, throughout the ages, the season before Easter, known as Lent, has been a time to focus on the humility, love and service of our Savior for each of us, in His death and resurrection. Many disciples use this season to practice the spiritual practices, or disciplines, of faith to help focus on Jesus and what He has done for us in His love and grace. Through this season, as His disciples gathered at Peace, we will grow in understanding the love of Christ as we intentionally use these spiritual practices, “sacred rhythms,” to grow in our relationship with our Savior.

Love Your Neighbor, Especially When Its Hard

Life is full of people that are difficult to get along with, sometimes we are even “that person”. Yet, as disciples of Jesus, we are called to love our neighbor, to love everyone, in the same grace and mercy that Jesus has shown to us. This 3-week series will help us, as disciple of Jesus, maintain safe boundaries in our relationships as appropriate, while also showing grace and mercy to our neighbors as we have been called to do as disciples of Jesus.

All In

The start of the new year is a tremendous opportunity to start new rhythms of life. In this 4-week series we will dive into living “All In” as a disciple of Jesus – with our whole heart, soul, mind and strength and setting up the rhythms of life that feed this. We don’t have to wait for our experiences to change to begin experiencing change. Instead, we can seek to follow Jesus in the freedom of His love and grace without hesitation.

Stop the Grinch

The holiday season for many Americans is one filled with activity, errands, parties, and exhaustion! In a time that is supposed to bring such joy and anticipation to disciples, we often find ourselves worn out, tired, stressed, and a bit too much like the Grinch. In this special series, we will dive into the joy we have in our Savior Jesus Christ, and how His Spirit can Stop the Grinch in our lives, and help us spread His light and joy to the world around us.

Red Letter Challenge

The question of what it means to be a disciple of Jesus is not a new one. Generations of Christians have wrestled with this very concept. What does it mean to “go and make disciples” as Jesus commissioned in Matthew 28? How do I know I’m a disciple of Jesus if I don’t have the Bible memorized, or a deep understanding of theology? This 40-day campaign dives in the very words of Jesus concerning what it means to be His disciple – Being (with Him), Forgiving (as He forgives), Serving (with love), Giving (generously as He gives) and Going (to share His good news!) – and how we can live them out in our daily lives.

Identity Matters: Living in the Truth

In a world run by, and consumed on, social media platforms, it is increasingly harder and harder to see a person’s true identity, or even to understand our own. This 5-week series will dive into some of the struggles that disciples of Jesus face in a world that is social media-based and how the truth of God’s promise throughout time, and His love shown on the Cross, can transcend the realities every generation faces and help us live our true lives and self in the love, grace and truth of our Savior Jesus Christ.

Wisdom: Life Lessons from the Past

We live in a fast-moving culture and society where things change so fast that we often lose the wisdom of the past, and rarely have time to learn from those who have gone before us. As we look at the world that lies ahead, and the ministry of the Church, this series will help us reach back into the truth of God’s Word and the wisdom provided, the wisdom of the Elders, to help us wisely carry out our purpose as disciples of Jesus Christ in our daily lives.
