  • ELCA Prayer Ventures June 20-27 

    20 It’s sometimes tempting to underestimate our influence and impact in the world as children of God, followers of Jesus. Ask God to encourage us through the presence of the Holy Spirit to be confident and bold in bearing the good news of Jesus Christ and living, acting and advocating for the well-being of all people and communities.

    21 The ELCA and The Episcopal Church are committed to prayer, fasting and advocacy addressing cuts to public programs that are vital to hungry people who are living in poverty. Remember to pray for these concerns, our leaders and people in need on the 21st of each month through December 2018.

    22 Remember in prayer the congregations, youth, parents, leaders and synods preparing for and traveling to the ELCA Youth Gathering in Houston.

    23 Give thanks to God for the grace, new life and purpose we receive in baptism, and pray that remembering our baptism serves to keep us grounded in the good news of our salvation and call to join one another in doing God’s work in the world.

    24 Pray for young people of color and those whose primary language is other than English who are gathered for the Multicultural Youth Leadership Event in Houston to celebrate their uniqueness, immerse themselves in Scripture, serve in the community, learn from teachers and elders, spread joy in fellowship and praise God who makes us one in the body of Christ.

    25 Pray that The tAble, a pre-event to the ELCA Youth Gathering, blesses and empowers young people who live with a range of physical, cognitive and emotional disabilities that they might grow as faithful, wise and courageous witnesses.

    26 Offer up prayers filled with thanks and praise for God’s love, power and wondrous works for the benefit of humankind.

    27 Remember in prayer the thousands of youth and adults beginning their experience of learning, worship, witness, celebration and service at the ELCA Youth Gathering in Houston.


  • OUTREACH Thank You KARM Volunteers Leaderless, yet not without direction, 10 volunteers fixed and served the noon meal at KARM Saturday, June 16. Seasoned volunteers know how to prepare our usual meal of spaghetti, green beans, fruit, corn bread and cake. New volunteers are always welcome; new volunteers become seasoned in just a few times at KARM. Thanks to Allan and Donna Ellstrom, Thomas Hudnall, Ginger Tevault, Dave and Judy Terwell, Bob Storm, Gary and Marlene Klukken, and Eva Kratts. It is interesting to note that if Thomas Hudnall is removed from the list, the average age of the volunteers is 73. Thomas said he was glad to be there to do the heavy lifting.

    DISCIPLESHIP ELCA Youth Gathering We have 2 youth going to the ELCA Youth Gathering in Houston, TX. Please pray for Jaden Toby, Annastasia Chitwood, and Kristi Shedden (their leader) as they leave on Monday, June 25. We look forward to hearing good things when they return.

    NURTURE Brunch Sunday, June 24 Everyone is invited to attend the brunch after worship, Sunday, June 24. The Women of Peace, working with seed money from Thrivent, will provide the food. Will Biscoe, son of Molly, will provide some breakfast bread--do not miss out on this treat. We want to honor the people who serve on Altar Guild, now and in the past. One way to honor the people on the guild is to contribute to the purchase of a new altar veil, the cloth that covers the elements before the meal. There will be a donation basket available.

    Peace Women's Book Group On Tuesday, July 3, at 10:00 a.m., we will discuss Gulp:Adventures on the Alimentary Canal by Mary Roach, Americas funniest science writer. Looking ahead: August 7: The Tea Girl of Hummingbird Lane by Lisa See.


    There will be NO band concert on Sunday.

  • MORE ABOUT OUR MISSION AT KARM Since its beginnings in 1982, Peace has been involved in many outreach ministries. One of those is serving a noonday meal at Knox Area Rescue Mission on Saturdays. We have shared this with our companion Lutheran churches. Periodically it is necessary to reevaluate how we do ministry. That time has arrived for KARM. We have always had good leaders, who organized everything, and willing volunteers to do the work. We are now in need of a new leader. We must consider whether we are able to continue with this ministry. If you only serve on a Saturday morning, you may not be aware of what is required to prepare for that morning. The leader has coordinated the annual schedule with the participating Lutheran churches, written and made the recruitment announcements, shopped for food at Second Harvest, shopped for additional food at the grocery store, made sure the food arrived at KARM, and supervised the preparation of the food. For the remainder of 2018, volunteers and backups are undertaking these many roles, but this is only a short term solution. A leader is really needed. A leader can come forward now, and we will continue. There will be an opportunity to discuss the future of Peace’s service at KARM at the Budget Meeting in November. To have a true voice, you must be one who is willing to participate. Between now and then, pray about t
