On Sunday, August 27 Jordan David Quella, son of Brian and Sarah (Casperson) Quella, was baptized and welcomed into the family of God and the family of Peace. Pastor Brad officaited the baptism. Jordan's sponsor was Mike Quella. We celebrate this milestone with Jordan and his family. The congregation is reminded that we all play an important role in Jordan’s faith journey as we made promises as well, wether we were present or not. Remember to fulfill your role for Jordan. Need help? Just ask Pastor Brad or Andy Moscinski.
Pastor Brad Dokken was installed to the office or Word and Sacrament at Peace Lutheran Church on Sunday, August 13. Associate to the Bishop, Amy Emebrose presided at worship and did the installation. Although Pastor Brad has been at Peace since June, the installation as pastor is the official act of the church. Peace is now 15 steps into the whole call process. There is one final step, step 16 to for the Call Team to meet and review the process with the Bishop. You can track this process in the main hallway of Peace. We are excited to have Pastor on board with Peace and give thanks for the Call Team’s diligent work. This is something to be happy about, this is a church win!
Sunday, June 4 saw the people of Peace hold a Blessing of the Bicycles and Helmet Giveaway. The weather was beautiful as folks gathered on the church grounds to have bicycles blessed, enjoy light refreshments, hear presentations on bike safety, take a short bike trip and get a free helmet. The Peace Endowment matched funds raised by parishioners. Anyone from the community could come and have their bike blessed and if needed, get a bike helmet. Helmets were properly fitted by the folks of Winebaggo Cycle. Check out the pictures below!
The congregational overwhelming voted in favor of the recommendation of the Call Team’s choice for the new pastor of Peace on Sunday, April 30.. His name will not be made public in any form by the congregation until said time has been announced. This is due to the fact that the candidate must be given time to respond (they may reject the call) and if they do accept the call, adequate time is needed to inform his community of faith and extending community. We want to respect the candidate’s process. We also want to extend prayers for the candidate and for his community as we gain a new and vibrant leader the other community loses one. Come back often for updates as available. If you have any questions, please direct them to Call Team lead, Chris Rabe.
