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 about that, 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.  However, 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. First Sundays are a drive in Communion Service and the Third Sunday is in the sanctuary.  Guests, 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 come to the altar. 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.

PRE-SERVICE MUSIC                                                                        

AS WE GATHER… Do you forget to pray now and then? It happens. It probably happens often. God never forgets to listen. The Lord’s steadfast love never ceases. When Jesus walked this earth, this was evident as He raised Jairus’s daughter, who had died between the request and Jesus’ arrival at his home. And He cured a hemorrhaging woman whose only prayer was touching His robe. Be encouraged that Jesus is always ready to listen to you and act on your behalf.


After the ringing of the bell, in silence we prepare our hearts and minds for today’s worship.


OPENING HYMN: “This is My Father’s World”              LBW 554                                                           

Text: Maltbie D. Babcock, 1858-1901, Tune: Franklin L. Sheppard, 1852-1930, adapt. © 1978 by Augsburg Publishing House, Minneapolis and Board of Publication, Lutheran Church in America, Philadelphia

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!


Pastor:     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

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

People:    Let us rejoice and be glad in it.

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

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

Pastor:     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.

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

People:    Teach me Your paths.

Pastor:     Sanctify us in Your truth.

People:    Your Word is truth.                                                     

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

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


Pastor:     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

Pastor:     In today’s Gospel, Jesus answered the prayers of a synagogue leader, Jairus, and a sick woman because they trusted Him. Jesus has heard your prayer today too. Receive health and salvation in the forgiveness He offers. All of your sins are forgiven in the name of the Father and of the + Son and of the Holy Spirit. 

People:    Amen. 

HYMN OF PRAISE: “Freely, Freely”                       TOSB 47

Words & Music by: Carol Owens, adapted from: Matt. 10:7,8 © 1971 by William J. Gaither.  The Fellowship Publication

God forgave my sin in Jesus’ name,

I’ve been born again in Jesus’ name;

And in Jesus’ name I come to you

To share His love as He told me to.

He said, “Freely, freely you have received:

Freely, freely give.

Go in my name, and because you believe,

Others will know that I live.”

All pow’r is giv’n in Jesus’ name,

In earth and heav’n in Jesus’ name

And in Jesus’ name I come to you

To share His pow’r as He told me to.

He said, “Freely, freely you have received:

Freely, freely give.

Go in my name, and because you believe,

Others will know that I live.”


Pastor:     Let us Pray. Heavenly Father, during His earthly ministry, Your Son, Jesus, healed the sick and raised the dead.

People:    We pray today for Your touch to heal us. Pour into our hearts such love toward You that we live to serve You;

Pastor:     through Jesus Christ, our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. 

People:    Amen.


Old Testament:                        Lamentations 3:22-33

Because the Lord’s steadfast love never ceases, we can hope for an end to current grief.

The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases;
    his mercies never come to an end;
they are new every morning;
    great is your faithfulness.
“The Lord is my portion,” says my soul,
    “therefore I will hope in him.”

The Lord is good to those who wait for him,
    to the soul who seeks him.
It is good that one should wait quietly
    for the salvation of the Lord.
It is good for a man that he bear
    the yoke in his youth.

Let him sit alone in silence
    when it is laid on him;
let him put his mouth in the dust—
    there may yet be hope;
let him give his cheek to the one who strikes,
    and let him be filled with insults.

For the Lord will not
    cast off forever,
but, though he cause grief, he will have compassion
    according to the abundance of his steadfast love;
for he does not afflict from his heart
    or grieve the children of men.

Reader: This is the Word of the Lord.

People: Thanks be to God.

GOSPEL:                                 Mark 5:21-43

            Jesus heals a woman and raises Jairus’s daughter. 

And when Jesus had crossed again in the boat to the other side, a great crowd gathered about him, and he was beside the sea. Then came one of the rulers of the synagogue, Jairus by name, and seeing him, he fell at his feet and implored him earnestly, saying, “My little daughter is at the point of death. Come and lay your hands on her, so that she may be made well and live.” And he went with him.

And a great crowd followed him and thronged about him. And there was a woman who had had a discharge of blood for twelve years, and who had suffered much under many physicians, and had spent all that she had, and was no better but rather grew worse. She had heard the reports about Jesus and came up behind him in the crowd and touched his garment. For she said, “If I touch even his garments, I will be made well.” And immediately the flow of blood dried up, and she felt in her body that she was healed of her disease. And Jesus, perceiving in himself that power had gone out from him, immediately turned about in the crowd and said, “Who touched my garments?” And his disciples said to him, “You see the crowd pressing around you, and yet you say, ‘Who touched me?’” And he looked around to see who had done it. But the woman, knowing what had happened to her, came in fear and trembling and fell down before him and told him the whole truth. And he said to her, “Daughter, your faith has made you well; go in peace, and be healed of your disease.”

While he was still speaking, there came from the ruler’s house some who said, “Your daughter is dead. Why trouble the Teacher any further?” But overhearing what they said, Jesus said to the ruler of the synagogue, “Do not fear, only believe.” And he allowed no one to follow him except Peter and James and John the brother of James. They came to the house of the ruler of the synagogue, and Jesus saw a commotion, people weeping and wailing loudly. And when he had entered, he said to them, “Why are you making a commotion and weeping? The child is not dead but sleeping.” And they laughed at him. But he put them all outside and took the child’s father and mother and those who were with him and went in where the child was. Taking her by the hand he said to her, “Talitha cumi,” which means, “Little girl, I say to you, arise.” And immediately the girl got up and began walking (for she was twelve years of age), and they were immediately overcome with amazement. And he strictly charged them that no one should know this, and told them to give her something to eat.

Reader: This is the Gospel of the Lord.

People: Praise to You, O Christ!

SERMON HYMN: “What a Friend We Have in Jesus”                  LBW 439

Text: Joseph Scriven, Tune: Charles C. Converse © Public Domain CCLI SONG # 27714

What a friend we have in Jesus,

All our sins and griefs to bear!

What a privilege to carry

Everything to God in prayer!

Oh, what peace we often forfeit;

Oh what needless pain we bear

All because we do not carry

Everything to God in prayer!

Have we trials and temptations?

Is there trouble anywhere?

We should never be discouraged

Take it to the Lord in prayer.

Can we find a friend so faithful

Who will all our sorrows share?

Jesus knows our every weakness

Take it to the Lord in prayer.

Are we weak and heavy laden,

Cumbered with a load of care?

Precious Savior, still our refuge

Take it to the Lord in prayer.

Do your friends despise, forsake you?

Take it to the Lord in prayer.

In his arms he’ll take and shield you;

You will find a solace there.

Part 3


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 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.


Pastor:     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. 

Pastor:     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. 

Pastor:     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. 

Pastor:     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. 

Pastor:     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. 



Pastor:     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.

O lights of evening, find a voice. CHORUS

Make music for your Lord to hear.

Oh, praise him! Alleluia!

O fire so masterful and bright,

Providing us with warmth and light, CHORUS

Dear mother earth, who day by day

Unfolds rich blessings on our way,

Oh, praise him! Alleluia!

Let them his praise abundant show. CHORUS
