Peace Lutheran Church

We welcome you in the name of the Lord Jesus. We are honored with your presence.  If you do not have a church home, you are invited to join us regularly. Please introduce yourself to Pastor Jeremy Lucke or one of the Ushers as you leave today and sign the guest book in the entryway. We continue to observe the guidelines for health safety. If you have any questions, please see an usher.  Everyone is welcome.

The ringing of the bell and the lighting of the Christ candle mark the beginning of our service and a time for quiet meditation, prayer and inward reflection as we begin our worship.

Children are welcome at our worship services. If you prefer, Peace Lutheran has a playroom equipped for children three years old and younger. The room is unstaffed and can be accessed in the fellowship hall where the service is also being live streamed for your convenience and enjoyment.

Holy Communion is celebrated every first and third Sunday and will follow the order of service in the bulletin. If you are a baptized Christian and share our faith in Jesus as Savior and have been instructed in the meaning and use of the Lord’s Supper, you are invited to partake. We have pre-wrapped communion wine or juice and wafers. We also have gluten-free wafers available. If you desire a gluten-free wafer, ask the server. May the body and blood of Jesus, present in the bread and wine, be a blessing to you.

There are times during the service when you will be asked to stand if you are able. Please feel free to remain seated if standing is difficult.

Offering. Peace Lutheran Church understands and teaches that Offerings are voluntary and to be from the heart. Whether we give or do not give does not determine our salvation. Whether we give much or little does not determine our standing before God. Sharing an Offering is an opportunity to quietly practice generosity with our neighbors.

Congregation Sing

Joy to the world the Lord is come,

Let earth receive her King!

Let ev’ry heart prepare him room,

and Heaven and nature sing,

and Heaven and nature sing,

and Heav’n and Heaven and nature sing.


O come all ye faithful,

Joyful and triumphant.

O come ye, o come ye to Bethlehem.

Come and behold Him;

Born the king of angels.


O come let us adore Him.

O come let us adore Him.

O come let us adore Him Christ the Lord.


He rules the world with truth and grace

and makes the nations prove

the glories of His righteousness,

and wonders of His love,

and wonders of His love,

and wonders, wonders of His Love!


“From Limits to Limitless”

Pastor Jeremy Lucke


Leader:  Gathered as God’s people and as heirs of an eternal inheritance, let us pray for the whole Church and for all people according to their needs, confidently bringing our prayer in the name of Jesus Christ, who is our light and our salvation.

We give You thanksgiving and praise, O Lord God Almighty, that when darkness covered the earth, You provided a Savior, able to help, and strong to deliver.

People:  Praise to You, O God!

Leader:  We give You thanksgiving and praise, that You gave Your eternal Son to become incarnate, that through Him light and pardon, power and peace, life and eternal salvation, might come to the fallen and lost children of men.

People:  Praise to You, O God!

Leader:  God of all mercy, pour out upon us Your Holy Spirit, that with our hearts and voices we may celebrate His birth, and with joyful devotion welcome Him. Grant we ask You, O Lord, that the good tidings of great joy in which we rejoice this day may everywhere be known. Bless the Church throughout the world that it may faithfully prosper in all things. Guide the rulers of nations that pathways of peace may be found. Lord, in Your mercy,

People:  hear our prayer!

Leader:  Grant the needs of all people be met according to Your good and gracious will. Grant that the ill and those burdened by many cares find respite from their challenges. Grant that those who sorrow this day look up to Your throne and find abundant consolation in Him who came to ransom us from every fear and every foe. Lord, in Your mercy,

People:  hear our prayer!

Leader:  Help, defend, and keep us all, through Him who was born at Bethlehem, so that when He comes in glorious majesty to complete our redemption we may have our perfect fulfillment and joy in His eternal kingdom; through the same Jesus Christ, our Lord, in whose blessed name we make all of our prayers.

People:  Amen.


Our Father, who art in heaven,

Hallowed be Thy name,

Thy kingdom come,

Thy will be done

On earth as it is in heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread;

And forgive us our trespasses,

as we forgive those

who trespass against us;

And lead us not into temptation,

But deliver us from evil.

For Thine is the kingdom,

And the power, and the glory,

Forever and ever.  Amen


CLOSING HYMN           “Go Tell It On the Mountain” 

Chorus:    Go tell it on the mountain,

Over the hills and ev’rywhere;

Go tell it on the mountain

That Jesus Christ is born!


While shepherds kept their watching

O’er silent flocks by night,

Behold, throughout the heavens

There shone a holy light.


The shepherds feared and trembled

When, lo, above the earth

Rang out the angel chorus

That hailed our Savior’s birth.


Down in a lonely manger

The humble Christ was born;

And God sent us salvation

That blessed Christmas morn.



Leader:  Go in Peace.  Serve the Lord.

People: Thanks be to God!
