Worship during Holy Week & Easter
ALL events at PEACE Lutheran Church, including Sunday and Lenten worship services, are canceled until further notice. Please do your part to slow the spread of the coronavirus!
In the meantime, please use these resources to nurture your spiritual life at home. If you need pastoral care, please send an email to email@example.com
We lead up to Easter celebrations with reflection during the time we call Holy Week. We invite you to share in this time. It is a solemn period of reflection on the dark side of our human condition. That very reflection makes the joy at the end of this week even greater!
Holy Week is a great time to start or renew your spiritual journey. “The Book of Faith” offers one path that takes you deeper in the stories of Scripture. We also have Adult Bible Study and Prayer Group opportunities here at PEACE Lutheran Church. We also have a great library! Call the office for details, (530) 273-9631. At PEACE, you can get support for walking your journey all year long!
