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.

AS WE GATHER……….. God calls us to be His holy people. Through the words of the prophet Isaiah and through his experience in God’s presence, the Lord reassures us that in love He forgives our sins and makes it possible for us to be holy in His sight. In the Hebrew language, to express what we would call a comparative word, you would say the “base word” twice—so “holier” would be expressed “holy, holy,” and that which is the holiest would be spoken of in the superlative as “holy, holy, holy.” And that is what our God is! Yet He knows us and cares for us individually. How amazing is that! 

Welcome & announcements

OPENING SONG              “Holy, Holy, Holy”

Text: Bishop Reginald Heber, 1783-1826, alt. Tune: John B. Dykes, 1823-1876; ©1978 published by Augsburg Publishing House, Minneapolis & Board of Publication, Lutheran Church in America, Philadelphia.

Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty

Early in the morning

our song shall rise to Thee.

Holy, holy, holy, merciful and mighty!

God in three Persons blessed Trinity!

Holy, holy, holy! All the saints adore Thee,

Casting down their golden crowns

around the glassy sea;

Cherubim and seraphim

falling down before Thee,

Which wert and art

and evermore shalt  be.

Holy, holy, holy! Though the

darkness hide Thee,

Though the eye of sinful man

Thy glory may not see,

Only Thou art holy’

there is none beside Thee,

Perfect in pow’r in love and purity.

Holy, holy, holy! Lord God Almighty!

All Thy works shall praise Thy name

in earth and sky and sea.

Holy, holy, holy, merciful and mighty!

God in three Persons, blessed Trinity!


Pastor:  In the name of the Father and of the + Son and of the Holy Spirit. 

People:  Amen. 

Pastor:  The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.  Do you not know that you are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit dwells in you? 

People:  Put on then, as God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, compassion, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience, bearing with one another and, if one has a complaint against another, forgiving each other. 


Pastor:   God’s kindness toward us knows no limits.  Let us go to Him, confident that He will grant us forgiveness for Jesus’ sake. 

Silent Reflection

Pastor:  Heavenly Father, 

People:  we confess that we are by nature sinful and unclean.  We have failed to show kindness, the fruit of Your Holy Spirit, in our thinking, speaking, and acting.  We have not loved You completely or our neighbors as ourselves.  We have let opportunities to show kindness slip away from us, exhibiting only what was expected of us and keeping Your kindness hidden within us.  Our Lord Jesus revealed His person and ministry through His words and actions.  In Your great mercy, forgive, renew, and lead us so that we may be revealed as His faith-filled followers to the glory of Your holy name.  Amen. 

Pastor: “Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God?  You are not your own, for you were bought with a price.”  Almighty God in His mercy has given His Son to die for you and for His sake forgives you all your sins.  As a called and ordained servant of Christ, and by His authority, I therefore forgive you all your sins in the name of the Father and of the + Son and of the Holy Spirit. 

People:  Amen.   

SONG OF PRAISE                                                    “We Will Glorify”

Twila Paris; Arr. Henry Wiens

We will glorify the King of kings
We will glorify the Lamb
We will glorify the Lord of lords
Who is the great I Am

Hallelujah to the King of kings
Hallelujah to the Lamb
Hallelujah to the Lord of Lords
Who is the great I Am

Lord Jehovah reigns in majesty
We will bow before His throne
We will worship Him in righteousness
We will worship Him alone


Pastor: O Lord, keep Your family the Church continually in the true faith that, relying on the hope of Your heavenly grace, we may ever be defended by Your mighty power; through Jesus Christ, Your Son, our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.

People: Amen.

Hearing from god’s word

EPISTLE              I Corinthians 14:12b-20

12 So with yourselves, since you are eager for manifestations of the Spirit, strive to excel in building up the church.

13 Therefore, one who speaks in a tongue should pray that he may interpret. 14 For if I pray in a tongue, my spirit prays but my mind is unfruitful.

15 What am I to do? I will pray with my spirit, but I will pray with my mind also; I will sing praise with my spirit, but I will sing with my mind also.

16 Otherwise, if you give thanks with your spirit, how can anyone in the position of an outsider say “Amen” to your thanksgiving when he does not know what you are saying?

17 For you may be giving thanks well enough, but the other person is not being built up. 18 I thank God that I speak in tongues more than all of you.

19 Nevertheless, in church I would rather speak five words with my mind in order to instruct others, than ten thousand words in a tongue.

20 Brothers, do not be children in your thinking. Be infants in evil, but in your thinking be mature.

Pastor: This is the Word of the Lord.

People: Thanks be to God.

GOSPEL:                       John 5:1-17

After this there was a feast of the Jews, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem. Now there is in Jerusalem by the Sheep Gate a pool, in Aramaic called Bethesda, which has five roofed colonnades.

In these lay a multitude of invalids—blind, lame, and paralyzed. One man was there who had been an invalid for thirty-eight years. When Jesus saw him lying there and knew that he had already been there a long time, he said to him, “Do you want to be healed?”

The sick man answered him, “Sir, I have no one to put me into the pool when the water is stirred up, and while I am going another steps down before me.” Jesus said to him, “Get up, take up your bed, and walk.”

And at once the man was healed, and he took up his bed and walked. Now that day was the Sabbath. 10 So the Jews said to the man who had been healed, “It is the Sabbath, and it is not lawful for you to take up your bed.”

11 But he answered them, “The man who healed me, that man said to me, ‘Take up your bed, and walk.’ ” 12 They asked him, “Who is the man who said to you, ‘Take up your bed and walk’?”

13 Now the man who had been healed did not know who it was, for Jesus had withdrawn, as there was a crowd in the place.

 14 Afterward Jesus found him in the temple and said to him, “See, you are well! Sin no more, that nothing worse may happen to you.”

15 The man went away and told the Jews that it was Jesus who had healed him. 16 And this was why the Jews were persecuting Jesus, because he was doing these things on the Sabbath.

17 But Jesus answered them, “My Father is working until now, and I am working.”

Pastor: This is the Gospel of the Lord.

People: Praise to You O Christ.

SERMON HYMN          “You Are My All In All”

Dennis Jernigan; 1991 Shepherd’s Heart Music, Inc. (Admin. by PraiseCharts Publishing, Inc.)

You are my strength when I am weak,

You are the Treasure that I seek,

You are my All in All.

Seeking You as a precious jewel,

Lord to give up I’d be a fool.

You are my All in All.

Chorus:  Jesus, Lamb of God, Worthy is Your name.

Jesus, Lamb of God, Worthy is Your name.

Taking my sin, my cross, my shame,

rising again I bless Your name.

You are my All in All.

When I fall down, You pick me up;

When I am dry, You fill my cup.

You my All in All



“Working & Resting”

Part 1

Part 2


People:  I believe in God, who has created all things and continues to create new life within us.

I believe in Jesus, son of God, son of man, the Savior of the world.  By His life, His death and resurrection, I can know the true depth of human possibility, and experience the true joy of an abundant life. 

I believe that the Holy Spirit is present, now and always, calling us to faith, giving us gifts and empowering us for service.

I believe that the community of believers called the church can experience the fullness of life through the word, the sacraments, and all that we do.  


Pastor:  Heavenly Father, You have appointed Your Church to be a city on a hill, shining the light of Your mercy into the world and gathering Your own to receive Your precious gifts of forgiveness, life and mercy. Use us joyfully to invite and welcome our neighbors, co-workers and acquaintances to join us in receiving Your gifts. Lord, in Your mercy,

People:  hear our prayer.

Pastor:  Heavenly Father, through the prophets You declare that the fasting You accept is to share our food with the hungry and our homes with the homeless. Guard us from self-absorption, gluttony and other vices that prevent us from extending Your bounty to those less fortunate. Grant shelter to those who have none, food to those who hunger and honest work to the unemployed. We ask You to bless those ministries that we are in partnership with to care for those who are less fortunate.  Use Your people to extend Your mercy, and lift us to the joy of sharing our daily bread. Lord, in Your mercy,

People:  hear our prayer.

Pastor:  Heavenly Father, Your mercies are new to us every morning, and yet we often know the pain of sickness, injury, sorrow and other frailties. In Your never-failing mercy, remember those who have requested our intercessions, [especially ________________,] that they might have healing and wholeness according to Your will and grace to entrust themselves to Your merciful hands as they endure with courage and hope whatever crosses and afflictions You are pleased to allow. Lord, in Your mercy,

People:  hear our prayer.

Pastor:  Into Your hands, O Lord, we commend all for whom we pray, trusting in Your mercy; through Jesus Christ, Your Son, our Lord.

People:  Amen.


Pastor:  The Lord be with you.

People:  And also with you.

Pastor:  Lift up your hearts.

People:  We lift them to the Lord.

Pastor:  Let us give thanks to the Lord our God.

People:  It is right to give him thanks and praise. 



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                                “Let All Things Now Living”

Katherine Kennicott Davis; 1939. Renewed 1966 E.C. Schirmer Music Company (Admin. By ECS Publishing Corporation)

Let all things now living

A song of thanksgiving

To God the Creator triumphantly raise

Who fashioned and made us

Protected and stayed us

Who still guides us on to the end of our days

God’s banners are o’er us

His light goes before us

A pillar of fire shining forth in the night

Till shadows have vanished

And darkness is banished

As forward we travel from light into light

His law He enforces

The stars in their courses

And sun in its orbit obediently shine

The hills and the mountains

The rivers and fountains

The deeps of the ocean proclaim Him divine

We too should be voicing

Our love and rejoicing

With glad adoration a song let us raise

Till all things now living

Unite in thanksgiving

To God in the highest Hosanna and praise


Mr. Mike Rinkin


Pastor:  Go in Peace!  Serve the Lord!
