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… 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 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. The Gospel for today is a section of the Sermon on the Mount known as the Beatitudes. Jesus begins this sermon by recounting the present reality of those who have faith: they are blessed, they are indeed blessed because theirs is the kingdom of heaven. They are part of the reign and rule of God. All saints, including you, are a part of the reign and rule of God; therefore, you are blessed!

Welcome & announcements


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

People: Amen.


Pastor:  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.

Pastor:  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-

Pastor:  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. 

Pastor: 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.

People: Amen.

THE scripture lessons

FIRST LESSON:                Revelation 7:9-17

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.”

Pastor: This is the Word of the Lord

People: Thanks be to God

EPISTLE:                     I John 3:1-3

See what kind of love the Father has given to us, that we should be called children of God; and so we are. The reason why the world does not know us is that it did not know him.

Beloved, we are God’s children now, and what we will be has not yet appeared; but we know that when he appears we shall be like him, because we shall see him as he is.

And everyone who thus hopes in him purifies himself as he is pure.

Reader: This is the Word of the Lord

People: Thanks be to God

GOSPEL:                    Matthew 5:1-12

Seeing the crowds, he went up on the mountain, and when he sat down, his disciples came to him. And he opened his mouth and taught them, saying:

“Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. “Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.

“Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth. “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied.

“Blessed are the merciful, for they shall receive mercy. “Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God. “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God.

10 “Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

11 “Blessed are you when others revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account.

12 Rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you.

Pastor: This is the Gospel of the Lord

People: Praise to You O Christ

SERMON HYMN                   “For All the Saints” LBW 174 (V. 1, 2, 4, 7)

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!


Part 1

Part 2

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.


After each portion of the prayers, these words are spoken:

Pastor: Let us pray to the Lord.

People: Bless us with Your mercy.

Pastor:       Let us pray for our fellow saints of God in Christ Jesus and for all people according to their needs.

Pastor:       For all the nations of the world, that their leaders see with Your eyes of justice and mercy the needs of their people, and that Your blessed ones represent You among every nation, tribe, people, and language, let us pray to the Lord:

People:    Bless us with Your mercy.

Pastor:       For Your Body, the Christian Church on earth, that we see in our service the coming of Your kingdom into our world, and that our love for others reflect the love our Savior has shown to all, let us pray to the Lord:

People:    Bless us with Your mercy.

Pastor:       For all the families of our congregation, that in seeing the poor, the hungry, the oppressed, and the grieving, we see You in them, and welcome the opportunity to bless others as You have blessed us, let us pray to the Lord:

People:    Bless us with Your mercy.

Pastor:       For all those who grieve the death of those they love, that their hearts be filled with Your peace and their eyes of faith behold You until the day of our reunion at the throne of the Lamb, when we shall see You face-to-face, let us pray to the Lord:

People:    Bless us with Your mercy.

Pastor:       For the sick, (especially….), that they receive Your blessing through the healing that comes by Your power alone, let us pray to the Lord:

People:    Bless us with Your mercy.

Pastor:       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 mind this day.

Blessed are you, holy are you.

Rejoice and be glad!

Yours is the kingdom of God.

Blest are they, the lowly ones;

They shall inherit the earth.

Blest are they who hunger and thirst;

They shall have their fill. 


Blest are they who seek peace;

They are the children of God.

Blest are they who suffer in faith;

The glory of God is theirs. 


Blest are you who suffer hate,

All because of Me.

Rejoice and be glad, yours in the kingdom;

Shine for all to see.
