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.

AS WE GATHER… It makes sense that we are worshiping outside today as our Gospel Reading details a moment in which Jesus was outside with his disciples in the midst of a terrible storm. Looking out onto the field south of church reminds us how God loves, cares, protect and guides us. Even when the weather is challenging and not the best, God still has a plan to take care of and protect the field. So also with us…..even when we experience troubles, setbacks, trials, tragedies and reverses in life, God still has a plan to draw us closer to Him!

WELCOME & Announcements

OPENING HYMN              “Shout to the Lord”

Darlene Zschech; © 1993 Wondrous Worship

My Jesus, my Savior,

Lord, there is none like You,

All of my days I want to

praise the wonders of Your mighty love.

My Comfort, my Shelter,

Tower of refuge and strength;

Let ev’ry breath, all that I am

Never cease to worship You.


Shout to the Lord

All the earth let us sing

Power and majesty

Praise to the King

Mountains bow down

And the seas will roar

At the sound of Your name

I sing for joy

At the work of Your hands

Forever I’ll love You

Forever I’ll stand

Nothing compares to the promise

I have in You

(Repeat all)


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

People:  Amen. 

OPENING WORDS                                  Ps. 84:10; 25:4; John 17:17

Leader:  This is the day which the Lord has made;

People:  Let us rejoice and be glad in it.

Leader:  From the rising of the sun to its setting,

People:  the name of the Lord is to be praised. 

Leader:  Better is one day in Your courts than a thousand elsewhere;

People:  I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God than dwell in the tents of the wicked.

Leader:  Make me to know Your ways, O Lord.

People:  Teach me Your paths.

Leader:  Sanctify us in Your truth.

People:  Your Word is truth.                                                 

Leader:  From the rising of the sun to its setting,

People:  the name of the Lord is to be praised.   


Leader:  Psalm 30:5 says, “Weeping may tarry for the night, but joy comes in the morning.” As we take some time to confess our sins, we do so with confidence. Why? God’s favor is for a lifetime and joy truly comes in the morning. Let us know confess our sins to God, our Heavenly Father. 

People:  Almighty God, Father of our Lord Jesus, I admit and confess my sinfulness. I have turned away from others in my thinking, speaking and doing. I have done what You forbid and have not done the good You demand. I am sorry for this. Have mercy on me. Forgive all of my sins and move me to serve You faithfully. Amen. 

~~~~~ Silence for reflection ~~~~~

Leader:  Upon this your confession, I, by virtue of my office as a called and ordained servant of the Word, announce the grace of God unto all of you, and in the stead and by the command of the my Lord Jesus Christ I forgive you all of your sins in the name of the Father and of the + Son and of the Holy Spirit. 

People:  Amen. 

HYMN OF PRAISE             “I Love You, Lord”

Words & Music by Laurie Klein; © 1978 & 1980 House of Mercy Music

(twice through)       

I love You, Lord

and I lift my voice

to worship You

O my soul, rejoice!

Take joy, My King, in what You hear,

may it be a sweet, sweet sound

in Your ear.


Leader:  Let us Pray. Almighty God, amid our questioning of Your designs in the face of our troubles, help us to come to You daily for Your answers. Grant to us true humility of faith and trust in Your everlasting love; through Jesus Christ, Your Son, our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.

People:  Amen. 


Old Testament:                 Job 38:1-11

God is Creator, you are not!

38 Then the Lord answered Job out of the whirlwind and said:  “Who is this that darkens counsel by words without knowledge?  Dress for action like a man; I will question you, and you make it known to me.

  “Where were you when I laid the foundation of the earth? Tell me, if you have understanding.  Who determined its measurements—surely you know! Or who stretched the line upon it?

On what were its bases sunk, or who laid its cornerstone,  when the morning stars sang together and all the sons of God shouted for joy?  “Or who shut in the sea with doors when it burst out from the womb,

  when I made clouds its garment and thick darkness its swaddling band,  10  and prescribed limits for it and set bars and doors,  11  and said, ‘Thus far shall you come, and no farther, and here shall your proud waves be stayed’?

Reader:  This is the Word of the Lord.

People:  Thanks be to God.

HOLY GOSPEL:                  Mark 4:35-41

Jesus calms the storm.  

35 On that day, when evening had come, he said to them, “Let us go across to the other side.” 36 And leaving the crowd, they took him with them in the boat, just as he was. And other boats were with him.

37 And a great windstorm arose, and the waves were breaking into the boat, so that the boat was already filling.

38 But he was in the stern, asleep on the cushion. And they woke him and said to him, “Teacher, do you not care that we are perishing?”

39 And he awoke and rebuked the wind and said to the sea, “Peace! Be still!” And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm. 40 He said to them, “Why are you so afraid? Have you still no faith?”

41 And they were filled with great fear and said to one another, “Who then is this, that even the wind and the sea obey him?”

Leader:  This is the Gospel of the Lord. 

People:  Praise to You, O Christ.

Lord, I come, I confess;

Bowing here I find my rest.

Without You I fall apart;

You’re the one that guides my heart.


Lord, I need You, oh I need You;

Ev’ry hour I need You.

My one defense, my righteousness;

Oh God how I need You.


Where sin runs deep Your grace is more

Where grace is found is where You are.

Where You are Lord I am free;

Holiness is Christ in me.


Lord, I need You, oh I need You;

Ev’ry hour I need You.

My one defense, my righteousness;

Oh God how I need You.


So teach my song to rise to You

When temptation comes my way.

When I cannot stand, I’ll fall on You.

Jesus You’re my hope and stay.


Lord, I need You, oh, I need You;

Ev’ry hour I need You.

My one defense, my righteousness;

Oh, God, how I need You.

My one defense, my righteousness;

Oh, God, how I need You.


Pastor Jeremy Lucke


People:    I believe in God, the Father almighty,

Creator of heaven and earth.

I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord.

He was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit

And was born of the virgin Mary.

He suffered under Pontius Pilate.

Was crucified, died, and was buried.

He descended into hell.

On the third day he rose again.

He ascended into heaven,

And is seated at the right hand of the Father.

He will come again 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.


We offer our thanksgiving for what God has first given us—ourselves, our time, our possessions.



Leader:  Let us come before God, the Father Almighty, maker of heaven and earth. 

O God, in the midst of the storms of life, be our rock and fortress, an ever-present help in times of trouble.  Our help is in the name of the Lord,

People:  Who made heaven and earth. 

Leader:  Father, raise up workers for Your harvest field, for the harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few.  Help us to encourage people to consider roles of service in Your Church.  Our help is in the name of the Lord, 

People:  Who made heaven and earth. 

Leader:  Almighty, guide and give wisdom to the leaders of our nation and lands around the world.  Watch over those who serve in the armed forces of our land, granting them safety in their serving.  Our help is in the name of the Lord,

People:  Who made heaven and earth. 

Leader:  Maker of heaven, bless with healing and restoration according to Your will those who are weak and suffering, (especially………..).  In their time of trouble, assure them of Your presence and love.  Our help is in the name of the Lord,

People:  Who made heaven and earth. 

Leader:  Into Your hands, O God, the Father Almighty, maker of heaven and earth, we commend all for whom we pray, trusting in Your mercy. 

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


Leader:  The Lord bless you and keep you.  The Lord make his face shine on you and be gracious to you.  The Lord look upon you with favor and…………………..+ give you peace.

People:  Amen. 

CLOSING HYMN:                     “This is My Father’s World”

Text: Malbie D. Babcock, 1858-1901, Tune: Franklin L. Sheppard, 1852-1930, adapt.; © 1978 by Lutheran Chuch in America, The American Lutheran Church, The Evangelical Lutheran Church of Cananda, The Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod

This is my Father’s world,

and to my list’ning ears

all nature sings,

and round me rings

the music of the spheres.

This is my Father’s world;

I rest me in the thought

of rocks and trees, of skies and seas;

His hand the wonders wrought.


This is my Father’s world;

the birds their carols raise;

the morning light, the lily white,

declare their maker’s praise.

This is my Father’s world;

He shines in all that’s fair.

in the rustling

grass I hear him pass;

He speaks to me ev’ry where.


This is my Father’s world;

oh, let me not forget

that, though the wrong

seems oft so strong,

God is the ruler yet.

This is my Father’s world,

why should my heart be sad?

The Lord is king, let the heavens ring;

God reigns, let the earth be glad!


Leader:  Go in peace! Serve the Lord!

People:  Thanks be to God!
