On June 26th Peace Lutheran Congregation was notified that Pastor Kristine will be leaving Menomonie to take a new call in Sioux City, Iowa.
Pastor Kristine's last Sunday will be July 23rd. We will be have cake and coffee reception for Pastor Kristine after the 9 a.m. Worship on that Sunday.
Jesus was born, and Jesus died. Jesus was raised, and Jesus ascended. These moments in Christ’s life take up so much of our time and attention the first half of the church year that summer becomes a blessed space to attend to Christ’s life and teaching. That’s what we do these summer months, continuing into the fall. We spend time with the life and teaching of Jesus.
We will hear stories of what it means to be a disciple of Jesus. Beginning with the Great Commission, Jesus tells his disciples, and us, to go and baptize. This command is what sends us out into the world every weekend when we are dismissed with the words….. “Go in peace. Serve the Lord”. The appropriate response is “Thanks be to God!”
We will also hear stories of healing including the Canaanite woman’s daughter. Jesus will teach the great crowds following him throughout Galilee with stories called parables. Our summer worship will include a healing prayer station during communion distribution when the gospel stories include Jesus’ healing power.
For part of the summer worship services will include portions of the liturigical setting by Ray Makeever which Peace members call the “fourth setting.” We will also include a variety of hymns familiar and new. We would like to invite your input on what hymns you haven’t sung in awhile, a favorite or a new hymn you would like to sing again. This is your opportunity to pick a hymn, tell us why you love it and over the summer we will include your request in a worship service. You may submit your request to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include the following: your name, the title of your favorite hymn, and why you love this hymn. We look forward to your input in our worship life.
