Advent, Season of Prayer – The season of Advent is a special season of prayer for Peace. You are invited to sign up to offer prayers for Peace’s present and future at a specific time each day throughout Advent. Please sign up HERE to be part of Peace’s prayer campaign!  

Family Advent Celebration – We are having an Advent Celebration on Sunday, December 5th from 10:15-11:45 a.m. in the Fellowship Hall.

Listening for the Light: A Lectio Divina Series for the Season of Advent - Tuesdays at 6:30pm MST during Advent by zoom at https://us02web.zoom.us/j/88082771560.  Led by Episcopal Deacon Sondra Jones. Lectio Divina is a prayerful reading of the scriptures, versus a scholastic reading. These short Advent Lectio Divina services will be quiet and contemplative, using scripture, music and other readings to lead us deeper into prayer. This is an opportunity to discern God's direction and will for us as individuals, as family, as communities of faith and as Christians in the world

 

Blue Christmas: A Service of Night Prayer for the Winter Solstice – Tuesday, December 21st at 6 p.m., in person and by Zoom at https://us02web.zoom.us/j/198825243. The winter solstice is the longest night and the beginning of winter in the northern hemisphere. For many, the lack of daylight intensifies other suffering – the weight of depression, the stress of the holidays, anxiety about time with family, and loneliness. This service is an opportunity to acknowledge those realities while honoring the abiding truth that God seeks to be with us, even (and perhaps especially) when we are “blue.” 

Christmas Eve Worship - Friday, December 24th at 6 p.m. In winter's deepest night, we welcome the light of the Christ child with Christmas carols, candlelight and special music. RSVP for in-person worship at https://www.signupgenius.com/go/4090C49AFAB2EAAFA7-christmas1 or worship by Zoom at https://us02web.zoom.us/j/198825243. Masks are strongly encouraged.

 

Sunday Worship & Faith Formation

Sunday Morning Worship at 9 a.m.

  • Online:

    • Participants are invited to have a bowl of water and lit candle nearby as a reminder of God's presence with you. You are also invited to get bread and wine or juice if you would like to participate in Holy Communion.

  • In-person:

    • Due to the number of individuals in our congregation who are either unable to be vaccinated or at high risk for severe illness from COVID, the spread of the Delta variant, and the possibility of breakthrough infection, and because our faith calls us to love and care for our neighbor, we strongly encourage the following while at Peace Lutheran:

      • Wear a well-fitting mask while inside the church building unless otherwise directed by a medical provider. 

      • Maintain a social distance of 6 feet from those who are not members of your household

      • Clean your hands frequently with soap and water or hand sanitizer

      • Worship by Zoom if you test positive for COVID, were exposed to someone who tested positive, or have any symptoms associate with COVID

    • Nursery care is provided for families with children.

Thursday Morning Bible Study from 9-10:30 a.m.

  • An opportunity to check in, pray together and study God's word! 

  • Find the schedule and  Bible study resources here.

Children’s Sunday School for children PreK - 5th grade meets on Sundays from 10:15-11 a.m.! Sunday school will meet outside under a shade structure in the courtyard. Parents may decide whether or not to have their children wear masks during the class. Children younger than 4 are welcome to participate, but we invite a parent or guardian to stay with them during the class. 

All are invited & welcome!
