    Father, thank You for sending Jesus, the long awaited Messiah. Not just for the Jews, but the

    good news is that Jesus was born for all people of all generations, from every tribe, tongue

    and language Please forgive me of my sins and come into my life Thank You for hearing my

    prayer, saving me from my sins, and providing a home for me in heaven for all eternity. 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.

  • Growing in Wisdom and

    in Grace at GIP...

    In the middle of the busy bustle and buzz of the Christmas season it can be

    challenging to pause in the wonder of God's many blessings that are

    around us. We get caught up in the demands of daily routine. The

    shepherds in Luke 2 were going about their daily duties when the angels of

    the Lord appeared to them announcing the birth of Jesus, the long awaited

    Savior. What a remarkable memorable night! God chose to deliver this

    GOOD NEWS to a group of shepherds on a seemingly typical night. That

    same gospel message of salvation that we share today!

    Bible Words: "Unto you is born...a Savior, who is Christ the Lord." Luke 2:11
