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. Offerings may be placed in the plates by the doors as we exit the sanctuary.

AS WE GATHER… This Sunday we observe the feast of All Saints’ Day.  While many congregations use this service to remember those saints who have departed this life in faith, we do well to remember that “saint” is simply another word for “believer” or “follower of Jesus.”  All of those who gather to confess Jesus as Lord are indeed already saints. With thankfulness, we recall those who have completed their earthly journeys in faith and who now rest from their labors. On this special day, we remember the blessed saints of times long past and those of recent times as well. By God’s grace in Christ, we have a promised place among the saints and can joyfully claim this day as ours!  



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

People: Amen.


Leader:  Almighty God, to whom all hearts are open, all desires are known, and from whom no secrets are hid: Cleanse the thoughts of our hearts by the inspiration of your Holy Spirit, that we may perfectly love you and worthily magnify your holy name, through Jesus Christ our Lord.

People: Amen.

Leader:  If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. But if we confess our sins, God who is faithful and just will forgive our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

~ Silence for reflection ~

Leader: Most merciful God,

People: We confess that we are in bondage to sin and cannot free ourselves. We have sinned against you in thought, word, and deed, by what we have done and by what we have left undone. We have not loved you with our whole heart; we have not loved our neighbors as ourselves. For the sake of your Son, Jesus Christ, have mercy on us. Forgive us, renew us, and lead us, so that we may delight in your will and walk in your ways, to the glory of your holy name. Amen.

Leader:  God, our heavenly Creator, hears the prayers of all people and answers those prayers. Our prayer for forgiveness is answered in the person and work of Jesus Christ, who died for our sin that we might have new life. By the command of Jesus, I forgive you all of your sins – in the name of the Father, and of the Son + and of the Holy Spirit.

People: Amen.


Leader: In peace, let us pray to the Lord.

People: Lord, Have mercy.

Leader: For peace from above, and for our salvation, let us pray to the Lord.

People: Lord, Have mercy.

Leader: For the peace of the whole world, for the well-being of the Church of God. And for the unity of all, let us pray to the Lord.

People: Lord, Have mercy.

Leader: For this holy house, and for all who offer here their worship and praise, let us pray to the Lord.

People: Lord, Have mercy.

Leader: Help, save, comfort, and defend us, gracious Lord.

People: Amen.


Leader: This is the feast of victory for our God. Alleluia.


Worthy is Christ, the Lamb who was slain,

whose blood set us free to be people of God.

Power and riches and wisdom and strength,

and honor and blessing and glory are his.

This is the feast of victory for our God. Alleluia.

Sing with all the people of God and join in the hymn of all creation:

Blessing and honor and glory and might be to God and the Lamb forever, Amen.

This is the feast of victory for our God, for the Lamb who was slain has begun his reign.

Alleluia. Alleluia.


Leader: The Lord be with you.

People: And also with you.


Leader: Let us Pray. Heavenly Father, You have lavished a great love upon Your children from every nation, tribe, and language. Show us mercy and comfort, Lord, as we mourn those saints who have gone before us in the faith, so that we continue to share Your love with all nations, through Jesus, our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.

People: Amen.


FIRST LESSON:                Revelation 7:9-17

Salvation belongs to God and the Lamb!

After this I looked, and behold, a great multitude that no one could number, from every nation, from all tribes and peoples and languages, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed in white robes, with palm branches in their hands, 10 and crying out with a loud voice, “Salvation belongs to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb!”

11 And all the angels were standing around the throne and around the elders and the four living creatures, and they fell on their faces before the throne and worshiped God, 12 saying, “Amen! Blessing and glory and wisdom and thanksgiving and honor and power and might be to our God forever and ever! Amen.”

13 Then one of the elders addressed me, saying, “Who are these, clothed in white robes, and from where have they come?”

14 I said to him, “Sir, you know.” And he said to me, “These are the ones coming out of the great tribulation. They have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.

 15 “Therefore they are before the throne of God, and serve him day and night in his temple; and he who sits on the throne will shelter them with his presence.

 16 They shall hunger no more, neither thirst anymore; the sun shall not strike them, nor any scorching heat.

 17 For the Lamb in the midst of the throne will be their shepherd, and he will guide them to springs of living water, and God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.”

Reader:  This is the Word of the Lord.

People:  Thanks be to God.

GOSPEL         Mark 7:31-37

Looking for Miracles in Everyday Life

Then he returned from the region of Tyre and went through Sidon to the Sea of Galilee, in the region of the Decapolis.

32 And they brought to him a man who was deaf and had a speech impediment, and they begged him to lay his hand on him.

33 And taking him aside from the crowd privately, he put his fingers into his ears, and after spitting touched his tongue.

34 And looking up to heaven, he sighed and said to him, “Ephphatha,” that is, “Be opened.”

35 And his ears were opened, his tongue was released, and he spoke plainly.

36 And Jesus charged them to tell no one. But the more he charged them, the more zealously they proclaimed it.

37 And they were astonished beyond measure, saying, “He has done all things well. He even makes the deaf hear and the mute speak.”

Pastor: This is the Gospel of the Lord.

People: Praise to You O Christ.

SERMON HYMN:          “For All the Saints”

Text: William H. How, 1823-1897, alt. Tune: RVaughn Williams, 1872-1958; ©1978 published by Augsburg Publishing House, Minneapolis & Board of Publication, Lutheran Church in America, Philadelphia

For all the saints who

 from their labors rest

All who by faith before

the world confessed,

Your name, O Jesus,

be forever blest,

Alleluia!  Alleluia!


You were their rock,

their fortress, and their might;

You, Lord, their captain in

the well-fought fight;

You, in the darkness drear,

their one true light.

Alleluia!  Alleluia!


Oh, blest communion,

fellowship divine,

We feebly struggle,

they in glory shine;

Yet all are one within

your great design.

Alleluia!  Alleluia!


But then there breaks

a yet more glorious day:

The saints triumphant

rise in bright array;

The King of glory

passes on his way.

Alleluia!  Alleluia!


From Hype to Hope

Part 1

Part 2

Part 3


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 power of 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.


Leader:  In joyful expectation of the resurrection to eternal life, we remember before our Lord our departed family and friends who have gone before us in faith and all who are in our hearts and minds this day. Lord, in your mercy,

People:  hear our prayer.

Pastor:  Almighty God, we remember with thanksgiving those who loved and served You in Your Church on earth and who now rest from their labors. Keep us in fellowship with all Your saints and bring us at last to the joy of Your heavenly kingdom; through Jesus Christ, Your Son, our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.

People:  Amen.


Leader: The Lord Be with you.

People: And also with you.

Leader: Lift up your hearts.

People: We lift them to the Lord.

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

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


Leader: It is indeed right and salutary …. We praise your name and join their unending hymn:



Holy, holy, holy Lord, Lord God of pow’r and might: Heav’n and earth are full of your glory.

     Hosanna in the highest, Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.

     Hosanna in the highest.



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


DISTRIBUTION HYMNS “You Who Dwell in the Shelter”

You who dwell in the shelter of the Lord,

Who abide in this shadow for life,

Say to the Lord: “My refuge, my rock in whom I trust!”

And I will raise you up on eagle’s wings,

Bear you on the breath of dawn,

Make you to shine like the sun,

And hold you in the palm of my hand.

Snares of the fowler will never capture you,

And famine will bring you no fear;

Under God’s wings your refuge

With faithfulness your shield.

And I will raise you up on eagle’s wings,

Bear you on the breath of dawn,

Make you to shine like the sun,

And hold you in the palm of my hand.

“Precious Lord, Take My Hand”

Text & Music: Thomas A. Dorsey (1899-1993); 1938 Warner-Tamerlane Publishing Corp. (Admin. by CURB | Word Music Publishing)

Precious Lord, take my hand,

Lead me on, help me stand—

I am tired, I am weak, I am worn;

Thro’ the storm, thro’ the night,

Lead me on to the light—

Take my hand, precious Lord,

Lead me home.


When my way grows drear,

Precious Lord, linger near—

When my life is almost gone;

Hear my cry, hear my call,

Hold my hand lest I fall—

Take my hand, precious Lord,

Lead me home.


When the darkness appears

And the night draws near

And the day is almost gone,

At the river I stand;

Guide my feet, holy my hand,

Take my hand, precious Lord;

Lead me home.


People: Thank the Lord and sing his praise; tell ev’ry-one what he has done.  Let ev’ry-one who seeks the Lord rejoice and proudly bear his name.  He recalls his promises and leads his people forth in joy with sounds of thanksgiving.

     Alleluia. Alleluia.


Leader: Eternal Father, in the words of Jesus, Your Son, You have shown to us the way of those who are truly blessed. Grant us the grace to live out our days as those who walk in ways of meekness and faith, following the path of our Lord and imitation the faith and virtues of the saints in our lifetime. Send Your Holy Spirit to direct and counsel us in all things and bring us at last to Your eternal kingdom. In the name of Jesus we pray.

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.

CLOSING SONG:        “As We Go, Lord, From This Place”

            (To the tune: Rock of Ages)

As we go, Lord, from this place,

Hold us close in your embrace.

When we’re weak,

your strength provide.

When we’re lost,

oh, be our guide.

For you, Lord,

shall show the way

As we journey day by day.


As we leave this place of rest,

May we, Lord, by you be blest.

Send us forth to mirror you

In all things we say and do.

Be for us a shining light.

Save us, Lord,

by your great might.


Pastor: Go in peace. Serve the Lord

People: Thanks be to God.



Tables of Peace. Tables of Peace will be starting this month. Tables of Peace is an opportunity for members to join in small groups for a meal and a short discussion topic.
