PEACE LUTHERAN CHURCH
Dear Friends through Christ Jesus:
He is Risen! He is Risen Indeed!
I am still wearing this stupid mask and walking the wrong way down the grocery aisles. However, Peace Lutheran is open to gather and worship our Risen Savior. Alleluia! It’s a start, but we have a long way to go until we get back to whatever normal might be.
Reminds me of a story of a woman name Fanny Funhoffer. Fanny had five Funhoffer children, and they always had lots of fun together. Well, Fanny Funhoffer wasn’t the best cook in the world, and one day she baked some biscuits. These biscuits were so hard that there was no way the children could even bite into them. The five Funhoffer children all looked at one another and asked, “What can we do with all these hard biscuits?” “I know,” said one of the Funhoffers, “We can make wheels out of em!”
So they nailed them on some pieces of wood and made skate boards. “Whoopee,” they yelled as they had so much fun.
Listen, sometimes things don’t turn out like we wish...like mama’s biscuits. But if we try, we can turn the bad things in our life into good things, if we only trust Jesus.
I may have used this story before, but a few hard biscuits is what Peace Lutheran Church has been served. What do we do with them?
Our opening consists of two worships—9:00AM & 11:00AM on Sunday. We will keep our distance of 6 feet, wearing masks and keeping at least one row/preferably two rows of separation between families. The main doors of entrance will be left open, hand sanitizers and mask will be available. Offering plates will be placed in the rear of the church. We will suspend the choir and Holy Communion until the World Council of Churches suggest otherwise. These are the hard biscuits we have been served.
The wheels made out of these hard biscuits are that Peace Lutheran will continue to place our weekly messages on the web, not only for those members who cannot attend, but as an outreach to those around us. The wheels made are that Peace Lutheran members have continued to support the ministry of this Lampstand, even during the stay at home mandate. The wheels made are that your council has continued to meet, visioning a glorious future. Next month, I will relay some of these visions.
In the meantime, I hope you will be patient with His Church and pray God will take all your hard biscuits and turn them into a whole bunch of Whoopee!
In Christian Love,

Where ALL People are Welcome!
At Peace, our focus is upon the Cross! The Cross is shorthand for the life, death and resurrection of Christ Jesus.
God is Almighty, All Powerful, All Encompassing. We as human beings cannot fathom the Supreme Being we call God. The closest we can come to understanding God, is through the life, death, and resurrection of our Lord.
Through the Cross, one can see the heart of our Creator. It is a heart of Love and Forgiveness. It is a heart of Compassion and Mercy. It is a desire for all of God's children to follow in the footsteps of His only Son, Jesus the Christ!
As a member congregation of "Lutheran Congregations in Mission for Christ" (LCMC), we support local, regional, national and global missions directly. Rather than funneling financial, material or volunteer support through a mission organization, we develop a one on one relationship with the missions and ministries we support. In this way, we get to see the needs as well as the resources that we can mutually share.
