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.

PENTECOST THEME… The Day of Pentecost demonstrates that no barriers of language or anything else in all creation can hinder God’s will to speak the Good News of the Gospel to the whole world.  This is not good news for a few but the message God has called us to proclaim to all people!

RINGING OF THE BELL…….. After the ringing of the bell we take a few moments in silence to prepare our hearts and minds for worship.

OPENING SONG                               “Spirit of the Living God”

(twice through)

Spirit of the living God,

Fall afresh on me.

Spirit of the living God,

fall afresh on me.

Melt me.  Mold me.

Fill me. Use me.

Spirit of the living God,

fall afresh on me.

THE DAY OF PENTECOST                Acts 2:1-21

When the day of Pentecost arrived, they were all together in one place. And suddenly there came from heaven a sound like a mighty rushing wind, and it filled the entire house where they were sitting.

And divided tongues as of fire appeared to them and rested on each one of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit gave them utterance.

Now there were dwelling in Jerusalem Jews, devout men from every nation under heaven. And at this sound the multitude came together, and they were bewildered, because each one was hearing them speak in his own language.

And they were amazed and astonished, saying, “Are not all these who are speaking Galileans? And how is it that we hear, each of us in his own native language?

Parthians and Medes and Elamites and residents of Mesopotamia, Judea and Cappadocia, Pontus and Asia, 10 Phrygia and Pamphylia, Egypt and the parts of Libya belonging to Cyrene, and visitors from Rome,

11 both Jews and proselytes, Cretans and Arabians—we hear them telling in our own tongues the mighty works of God.” 12 And all were amazed and perplexed, saying to one another, “What does this mean?”

13 But others mocking said, “They are filled with new wine.” 14 But Peter, standing with the eleven, lifted up his voice and addressed them: “Men of Judea and all who dwell in Jerusalem, let this be known to you, and give ear to my words.

15 For these people are not drunk, as you suppose, since it is only the third hour of the day. 16 But this is what was uttered through the prophet Joel:

 17  “ ‘And in the last days it shall be, God declares,   that I will pour out my Spirit on all flesh,   and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams;

 18  even on my male servants and female servants in those days I will pour out my Spirit, and they shall prophesy.  19  And I will show wonders in the heavens above and signs on the earth below, blood, and fire, and vapor of smoke;

 20  the sun shall be turned to darkness and the moon to blood, before the day of the Lord comes, the great and magnificent day.  21  And it shall come to pass that everyone who calls upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.’


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

People:  Amen. 

Leader:  Come, Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of the faithful,

People:  and kindle in them the fire of Your love. Alleluia.

Leader:  Send out Your light and Your truth; let them lead me;

People:  let them bring me to Your holy hill and to Your dwelling!

Leader:  Hope in God; for I shall again praise Him,

People:  my salvation and my God.

Leader:  All the earth worships You and sings praises to You;

People:  they sing praises to Your name.


Leader:  Lord, we need Your mercy.  In this hour, help us to see our sin and pain and pray for a fresh start.  Help us to see the shortcomings in our lives and look to You for the answers to our problems.  Give us a new vision of what life can be like.  Teach us to hope, to love, to give and to have faith.  Lord, we need Your mercy.

~~~~~ Silence for Reflection ~~~~~


People:  Our God has heard the cries and felt our pain and has had mercy on us.  God has seen our need and provided for our salvation; seen our condition and provided the solution; seen our heart and given us a Savior.  Through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, our sin is no longer the weight that holds us down.  We are free to live in victory, free from the sin of our self-deceit and free from Satan’s power.  Praise God for goodness. 


Leader:  Let us Pray.  God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, as you sent upon the disciples the promised gift of the Holy Spirit, look upon your Church and open our hearts to the power of the Spirit.  Kindle in us the fire of your love and strengthen our lives for service in your kingdom.  We pray this through your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.  

People:  Amen.


HOLY Gospel:              John 15:26-27; 16:4b-15

Jesus promises the Holy Spirit.

26 “But when the Helper comes, whom I will send to you from the Father, the Spirit of truth, who proceeds from the Father, he will bear witness about me.

27 And you also will bear witness, because you have been with me from the beginning.

“I did not say these things to you from the beginning, because I was with you.

But now I am going to him who sent me, and none of you asks me, ‘Where are you going?’ But because I have said these things to you, sorrow has filled your heart.

Nevertheless, I tell you the truth: it is to your advantage that I go away, for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you. But if I go, I will send him to you.

And when he comes, he will convict the world concerning sin and righteousness and judgment: concerning sin, because they do not believe in me;

10 concerning righteousness, because I go to the Father, and you will see me no longer; 11 concerning judgment, because the ruler of this world is judged. 12 “I still have many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now.

13 When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth, for he will not speak on his own authority, but whatever he hears he will speak, and he will declare to you the things that are to come.

14 He will glorify me, for he will take what is mine and declare it to you. 15 All that the Father has is mine; therefore I said that he will take what is mine and declare it to you.

Leader:  This is the Gospel of the Lord.

People:  Praise to You, O Christ.

SERMON HYMN         “All People That on Earth Do Dwell”

Roger Jones & William Kethe;  © Words: Public Domain Music: 1981 Christian Music Ministries (Admin. by Sovereign Music UK)

All people that on earth do dwell,

Sing to the Lord with cheerful voice;

Him serve with mirth, His praise forth tell;

Come ye before Him and rejoice.


Know that the Lord is God indeed:

Without our aid He did us make;

We are His folk, He doth us feed,

And for His sheep He doth us take.


Oh, enter then His gates with praise,

Approach with joy His courts unto;

Praise, laud, and bless His name always,

For it is seemly so to do.


For why? The Lord our God is good;

His mercy is forever sure;

His truth at all times firmly stood,

And shall from age to age endure.


Pastor Jeremy Lucke

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 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:  Make us one, Lord, in our eagerness to speak good news and set all captives free. 

People:  Give us Your Holy Spirit. 

Leader:  Make us one, Lord, in concern for the poor, the hurt, and the downtrodden, to show them Your love. 

People:  Give us Your Holy Spirit. 

Leader:  Make us one, Lord, in worship, breaking bread together and singing Your praise with single voice

People:  Give us Your Holy Spirit. 

Leader:  Make us one, Lord, in faithfulness to Jesus who never fails us, and who will come again in triumph. 

People:  Give us Your Holy Spirit. 

Leader:  Give us Your Holy Spirit, God our Father, so we may have among us the same mind that was in Christ Jesus; and proclaim Him to the world.  May every knee bow down and every tongue confess Him Lord, to the glory of your name. 

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



Amazing Grace

Edwin Othello Excell; John Newton; John P. Rees; William W. Walker; Words: Public Domain ; Music: Public Domain

Amazing grace how sweet the sound,

That saved a wretch like me!

I once was lost but now am found;

Was blind but now I see.


‘Twas grace that taught my heart to fear,

And grace my fears relieved;

How precious did that grace appear

The hour I first believed!


Thro’ many dangers, toils, and snares

I have already come;

‘Tis grace hath brought me safe thus far,

And grace will lead me home.


When we’ve been there ten thousand years,

Bright shining as the sun,

We’ve no less days to sing God’s praise

Than when we first begun.

Great is Thy Faithfulness

Thomas Obediah Chisholm; William Marion Runyan; Words: Public Domain ; Music: Public Domain

“Great is Thy faithfulness,”

O God my Father,

There is no shadow

Of turning with Thee;

Thou changest not,

Thy compassions, they fail not;

As Thou hast been

Thou forever wilt be.


Chorus:                     “Great is Thy faithfulness!

Great is Thy faithfulness!”

Morning by morning

New mercies I see;

All I have needed

Thy hand hath provided

“Great is Thy faithfulness,”

Lord unto me!


Summer and winter,

And springtime and harvest,

Sun, moon and stars

In their courses above,

Join with all nature

In manifold witness

To Thy great faithfulness

Mercy and love.


Pardon for sin

And a peace that endureth,

Thy own dear presence

To cheer and to guide;

Strength for today

And bright hope for tomorrow,

Blessings all mine,

With ten thousand beside!



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:           “Before You, Lord, We Bow”

Charles Wesley, Francis Scott Key, Gilbert M. Martin,  John Darwall © Words: The Sacred Music Press (Admin. by Music Services, Inc.) Music: The Sacred Music Press (Admin. by Music Services, Inc.)

Before you, Lord, we bow.

Our God who reigns above

And rules the world below,

Boundless in power and love.

Our thanks we bring in joy and praise,

our hearts we raise to you, our King!


Earth, hear your Maker’s voice;

Your great Redeemer own;

Believe, obey, rejoice,

And worship him alone.

Cast down your pride, your sin deplore,

An bow before the Crucified.


And when in pow’r he comes,

Oh, may our native land

From all its rending tombs

Send forth a glorious band,

A countless throng, with joy to sing

To heav’n’s high king salvation’s song.


Leader:  Go in peace! Serve the Lord!

People:  Thanks be to God!
