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’s people have been rescued! The heavenly Father has “delivered us” – rescued us – from the darkness of sin, death, and the power of the devil. He has “transferred us” into the kingdom of grace in His Son, our Lord Jesus Christ. We have been set free to serve God in the power and example of Jesus: He seeks, He loves, He saves.


CALLING ON GOD              Psalm 103:1-5

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

People: Amen.

Pastor: Bless the Lord, O my soul,

People: and all that is within me, bless His holy name!

Pastor:  Bless the Lord, O my soul,

People:  and forget not all His benefits,

Pastor:  who forgives all your iniquity, 

People:  who heals all your diseases,

Pastor:  who redeems your life from the pit, 

People:  who crowns you with steadfast love and mercy,

Pastor:  who satisfies you with good

People:  so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.


Pastor:  Beloved in the Lord, we have not lived a life worthy of our righteous Shepherd. We have all built dividing walls of hostility. Let us then confess our sins to God, our heavenly Father.

~~~~ Silence for reflection ~~~~

Pastor:  Heavenly Father,

People: We confess that we have been divisive and have failed to live at peace with one another. At times, we have treated others as inferior because of differences of language and race, intelligence and appearance, gender and age. Forgive us for our prejudice and break down the walls that divide us from one another and from You.


Pastor:  You were once foreigners and strangers to God, but now you have been brought near by the blood of Christ. He Himself is our peace. Jesus Christ died and was raised for you so that you might be reconciled with God and with one another. 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 CONFIDENCE                       “On Eagles Wings”

Words & Music by Michael Joncas; 1971 by William J. Gaither, The Fellowship Publication, Edina, MN

(From the Song Selection Box)

You who dwell in the shelter of the Lord

who abide in His shadow for life

Say to the Lord,

“My refuge, my Rock in whom I trust.

Chorus:       And He will raise you up on eagle wings

Bear you on the breath of dawn,

Make you to shine like the sun,

And hold you in the palm of His hand.

Snare of the fowler will never capture you,

and famine will bring you no fear

under His wings your refuge,

His faithfulness your shield


You need not fear the terror of the night,

not the arrow that flies by day,

though thousands fall about you,

near you it shall not come.



Pastor:  Let us Pray… Lord Jesus Christ, in Your deep compassion You rescue us from whatever may hurt us. Teach us to love You above all things and to love our neighbors as ourselves; for You live and reign with the Father and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.

People: Amen.


EPISTLE             Colossians 1:1-14

Paul’s gratitude to God for the faith, love and witness of the Colossians.

Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus by the will of God, and Timothy our brother, To the saints and faithful brothers in Christ at Colossae: Grace to you and peace from God our Father.

We always thank God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, when we pray for you, since we heard of your faith in Christ Jesus and of the love that you have for all the saints,

because of the hope laid up for you in heaven. Of this you have heard before in the word of the truth, the gospel,

which has come to you, as indeed in the whole world it is bearing fruit and increasing—as it also does among you, since the day you heard it and understood the grace of God in truth,

just as you learned it from Epaphras our beloved fellow servant. He is a faithful minister of Christ on your behalf and has made known to us your love in the Spirit.

And so, from the day we heard, we have not ceased to pray for you, asking that you may be filled with the knowledge of his will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding,

10 so as to walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to him: bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God;

11 being strengthened with all power, according to his glorious might, for all endurance and patience with joy;

12 giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of the saints in light.

13 He has delivered us from the domain of darkness and transferred us to the kingdom of his beloved Son, 14 in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.

Reader:  This is the Word of the Lord.

People:  Thanks be to God.

GOSPEL                    Luke 10:25-37

The Good Samaritan

25 And behold, a lawyer stood up to put him to the test, saying, “Teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?”

26 He said to him, “What is written in the Law? How do you read it?”

27 And he answered, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind, and your neighbor as yourself.”

28 And he said to him, “You have answered correctly; do this, and you will live.” 29 But he, desiring to justify himself, said to Jesus, “And who is my neighbor?”

30 Jesus replied, “A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and he fell among robbers, who stripped him and beat him and departed, leaving him half dead.

31 Now by chance a priest was going down that road, and when he saw him he passed by on the other side.

32 So likewise a Levite, when he came to the place and saw him, passed by on the other side.

33 But a Samaritan, as he journeyed, came to where he was, and when he saw him, he had compassion.

34 He went to him and bound up his wounds, pouring on oil and wine. Then he set him on his own animal and brought him to an inn and took care of him.

35 And the next day he took out two denarii and gave them to the innkeeper, saying, ‘Take care of him, and whatever more you spend, I will repay you when I come back.’

36 Which of these three, do you think, proved to be a neighbor to the man who fell among the robbers?”

37 He said, “The one who showed him mercy.” And Jesus said to him, “You go, and do likewise.”

Pastor: This is the Gospel of the Lord.

People: Praise to You O Christ.


SERMON HYMN     “Come, Thou Fount of Every Blessing”

By: Robert Robinson & Asahel Nettleton; © 1971 by William J. Gaither. The Fellowship Publications Phoenix, AZ 85076

Come, thou fount of every blessing,

tune my heart to sing thy grace;

Streams of mercy, never ceasing,

call for songs of loudest praise.

While the hope of endless glory

fills my heart with joy and love,

Teach me ever to adore Thee,

may I still thy goodness prove.

Here I raise my Ebenezer,

hither by thy help I’m come;

And I hope, by thy good pleasure,

safely to arrive at home.

Jesus sought me when a stranger,

wandering from the fold of God;

He, to rescue me from danger,

interposed his precious blood.

O to grace how great a debtor,

daily I’m constrained to be;

Let that grace now like a fetter,

bind my wandering heart to thee.

Prone to wander, Lord, I feel it,

prone to leave the God I love;

Here’s my heart, O take and seal it,

seal it for thy courts above.

People: I believe in God, the Father Almighty,

          Maker of heaven and earth.

          And in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord,

          Who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,

          Born of the virgin Mary,

          Suffered under Pontius Pilate,

          Was crucified died and was buried.

          He descended into hell.

          The third day He rose again from the dead.

          He ascended into heaven

          And sits at the right hand of God the Father Almighty.

          From thence He will come to judge the living and the dead.

          I believe in the Holy Spirit,

          The holy Christian Church,

          The communion of saints,

          The forgiveness of sins,

          The resurrection of the body,

          And the life + everlasting. Amen.

Pastor:  Let us pray for the whole people of God in Christ Jesus and for all people according to their needs.

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         “To God Be the Glory”

By: Fanny J. Crosby & William H. Doane; 1971 By William J. Gaither, The Fellowship Publications

To God be the glory,

great things He has done,

So loved He the world

that He gave us His Son.

Who yielded His life

an atonement for sin,

And opened the life gate

that all may go in.  

Chorus:                 Praise the Lord, praise the Lord,

Let the earth hear His voice!

Praise the Lord, praise the Lord,

Let the people rejoice!

O come to the Father,

Thro’ Jesus the Son,

And give Him the glory,

 great things He has done.

O perfect redemption,

the purchase of blood,

To ev’ry believer

the promise of God;

The vilest offender

who truly believes,

That moment from

Jesus a pardon receives.


Great things He hath taught us,

great things He hath done,

And great our rejoicing

thro’ Jesus the Son;

But purer, and higher,

and greater will be

Our wonder, our transport,

when Jesus we see.



Pastor: Go in Peace. Serve the Lord.

People: Thanks be to God.
