The nationally acclaimed Walt Strony plays organ during our Free Holiday Mini-Concert, 5pm Wednesday, Dec. 13, at PEACE Lutheran Church.

PEACE staff organist Walt Strony is a nationally acclaimed performer of the theater organ. He fills our Sanctuary this afternoon with great music of the season – a chance for you to refocus on the real meaning of this season before Christmas!

For 25 years, these short concerts offered free of charge have been PEACE’s gift to the community. Just 30 minutes long, they give people a way to get relief from the holiday rush. We hope you would come and enjoy them!

Our line-up includes:

  • 5 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 20: Bells of Peace handbell choir, with a duet by the Rev. Eileen Smith Le Van and Rebecca DeCourten. A recorder ensemble also will perform.

No offering will be taken during the concerts. If anyone wishes to donate to the Peace Organ Fund, a basket will be available at the back of the church. (Peace has launched a campaign to replace the aging organ in the sanctuary.)

After each mini-concert, the audience is invited to stay for a short prayer service, starting about 5:30 p.m. each Wednesday. This ancient tradition, called vespers, follows the uplifting musical format of Holden Evening Prayer. Music includes a beautiful, modern interpretation of “The Magnificat” – or, Mary’s Song.

We offer ample parking and handicapped drop-off (drive all the way around the building, to the left, and drop off your passenger at the glass doors underneath the carport). For more information, call (530) 273-9631.
