    Heavenly Father, You gave Your Word to Your people through the prophets of old. As You used John the Baptist to prepare the way for the Lord, use this service now to prepare me so that I can receive Your Word and Sacraments faithfully and be strengthened in my faith and trust in Jesus Christ. It’s in His name that I pray, Amen.


    While we might consider ourselves relatively good the fact is we are naturally

    opposed to God and His plan for our lives. This nature and the things we do

    because of this nature result in “sin.” But God loves us and has overcome

    sin for us. He did this by sending His Son, Jesus, to bridge the gap

    created by sin. Now we are no longer separated from God because

    Jesus has brought us back together: “God was in Christ, reconciling the

    world to Himself, not counting their sins against them.” (II Corinthians

    5: 19) The one who believes this is a Christian.

    REGARDING HOLY COMMUNION. Members of sister Lutheran

    congregations are, of course, invited to join us at the Lord's Table. Others are

    requested to consult with the Pastor before communing with us the first time. In

    this way you will help us be responsible in our administration of the Sacrament –

    and you, in turn, will be blessed as you commune with us.

    NOTE: In the center of each communion tray are a few glasses with non-alcohol wine

    for those who are on alcohol restrictive medications or wish to abstain from alcohol

    for personal reasons.

    The Mission of Peace Lutheran Church is to equip and encourage

    Christ’s followers to grow in faith, share their faith and live out

    their faith.


    Peace Lutheran Church and Grow in Peace will present a Christmas Program

    Service today, December 13th at 3:00pm in the Church Sanctuary.

    Practice for this program will be on Saturday the 12 th

    ; 10:00 AM to Noon. If

    your child(ren) are able to join in the program they will

    also need to be at the practice. For the practice day you

    can drop off your child(ren) at 10 AM and then pick

    them back up at 12:00pm. (Shopping time for you!) For

    the program day you must stay present at the Church

    with your cild(ren) and enjoy the program and

    fellowship time afterwards. Most of GIP's children will

    be singing songs standing within the front pews and a

    few of them will dress as angels, shepherds, animals and

    such. Please look for a sign-up sheet on your child's

    classroom door for more info. When you place your

    child's name on the list we will make plans for them to

    perform the songs we will be singing.

  • Growing in Wisdom and

    in Grace at GIP...

    This week's Bible lesson is found in Numbers 21, The Bronze Snake, the

    Israelites has just defended the Canaanites after praying to God for

    help. God came through! Yet, the Israelites thought their trip was taking

    too long so they started to complain about the food God was

    providing. Due to their grumbling, God sent a poisonous snake among

    them causing the Israelites to realize their need to rely on the Lord. God

    told Moses to put a bronze snake on a pole, and when the Israelites

    looked at the snake with faith in God's promise, they would live. This

    week our focus was on patience and true thankfulness. Sometimes we

    are compelled to grumble and complain instead of looking toward

    God's many blessings. Even in our impatience we can be thankful God
