PEACE begins with a smile.
A small town welcome...
...a spacious place to grow
Caring for all of God's creatures...
Due to our current public health crisis, Peace Lutheran Church has ceased our regular indoor worship until further notice. Though our building is still closed to the public, our church office will be staffed Tuesday-Friday from 9:00-12:00.
We are currently offering a parking lot Drive-in Worship each Sunday at 10:00 am. You are welcome to join us! Please plan to stay in your vehicle. Limited access to restrooms will be available.
For those unable to join us, we will continue to make sermons and worship resources available here, on our FaceBook page, and via email. The most current reflections are below. Recent sermons from past weeks are available under Congregational Life/Online sermons. For more information, contact Pastor Annette via email at Pastor@plsilvana.org
After the sermon, you are invited to nourish your “good soil” with this beautiful song, “Take Heart” by Matthew West.
Not too small and not too big — just right to make it relatively easy to get to know folks and feel a sense of welcome. There are some good things about being part of a small town church.
Genuine hospitality, where there is always room for one more at the table, is one of them.
I value the friendly, open spirit in this place and how people care for each other. But just as important, “small town” does not mean small-minded. Think globally, act locally: that phrase describes us well.
At Peace we seek to embody a sense of spaciousness, where there is room to ask questions, to learn from varied experiences, to consider new ways of thinking and to continue to grow in faith and understanding.
Here you will find a spectrum of ages and backgrounds and a diversity of theological perspectives, from life-long Lutherans to those who are brand new to the whole “Christian thing”.
My hope is that what binds us together is a sincere desire to grow as disciples of Jesus, to take the Gospel call to “love one another, as I have loved you” seriously, and to deepen our public witness to God’s kingdom vision of true “welcome” for all God’s children.
Come on by, and we will set a place for you to join us.
We’re proud of our deep roots in the Silvana area, but we don’t believe in staying in the past. As disciples of Jesus, we are called to journey forward, meeting the changing needs of both our local community and the wider culture.
At Peace Lutheran you will have the opportunity to experience a hands-on faith community that cares for families, helps our neighbors and engages in larger world opportunities for service.
