WELCOME TO PEACE LUTHERAN

Peace Lutheran Church exists to grow disciples for Jesus

and share Christ with the world


Pentecost

The day of Pentecost celebrates the release of the Holy Spirit. It comes 50 days after Easter, and is celebrated on June 8 this year. It is a tradition in some churches to wear red on that day to acknowledge the fire of the Holy Spirit burning within those first apostles.

On the Sundays following Pentecost, we take a more ‘relaxed’ attitude toward worship. As hot as it is outside as well as under the spotlights up front, our worship leaders will adopt more casual attire until Reformation Sunday. As we in Arizona know so well, it is our heart and not our garments that are at the center of worship.

Young Hearts Theater Group

Our 2014 Holiday play will be The Tinsel Trap by Don Farnsworth. Play Synopsis: Jake and Marley’s dad just lost his job and they think Christmas is ruined! Until they fall asleep and a mysterious angel comes and whisks them off to Christmas land! While they are there, they meet children from all the Christmas stories who teach them the true meaning of Christmas.

Two performances to choose from:

  • Saturday, November 22, at 3:30 pm
  • Sunday, November 23, at 6:15 pm

These performances are FREE and everyone is invited to come and learn with us the true meaning of Christmas!

 
Preschool Bake Sale

Sunday, November 23, beginning at 8:00 am. The Preschool will host its annual bake sale on the patio between worship services. All proceeds will go towards improving our school. Come early for best selection!

 
Thanksgiving Worship

November 26 at 7:00 pmThe holidays are always so busy, and it is so hard to find the time, but there is no better way to remember the why of this holiday then to join with our brothers and sisters in faith in giving THANKS. Our Thanksgiving Service is our chance to recount the blessings as well as to remember our calling to be a blessing to others. Our special Thanksgiving offering will be divided equally between the Lutheran World Hunger Appeal and St. John’s Glendale Food Pantry. We hope you will be generous in your giving.

 
Christmas Cantata

 Rehearsals have just begun for the cantata Canticles in Candlelight by Joseph Martin, which will take place Sunday, December 21, at the 10:00 am service. Anyone and everyone are welcome to come and join us. We rehearse the cantata at the first part of the choir rehearsals on Wednesday evening beginning at 7:00 pm. Contact Michael Miller for more information.

 
Load Up A GO Box

Pick up an Operation Christmas Child "GO" (Gospel Opportunity) box, fill it up, and return it to Peace by November 16. Together we are able to share the love of Jesus Christ and the joy of of Christmas with millions of boys and girls. Contact Ellen with questions or to get involved.

 
Olive Wood Carvings

Sunday, November 9, beginning at 8 AM. Khaled Hannoona will bring to Peace traditional olive wood carvings from Bethlehem Christmas Lutheran Church in the Holy Land. Proceeds from sales will benefit Lutheran Christians in the Holy Land. Olive wood trees can live to be thousands of years old, and are harvested not only for olives but also their wood. Branches are handled with care and must dry for one to two years before carving begins, even longer on the larger pieces. Each finished piece may be the result of several attempts. This is especially true for the larger pieces where six or more pieces may need to be started before one can be completed, because imperfections inside the wood do not become visible until considerable work has been done. We hope you will stop by the tables on the patio to enjoy the artistic beauty of these original creations.

 
Join Our Habitat Build

You are invited to be part of the Peace work crew as we renovate a three bedroom home on three Saturdays this year: November 1 and 15, and December 6. No experience is necessary! All tools and instruction are provided. Providing affordable housing is priceless! If you would like to be a volunteer, please contact Mark and Chris for details.
