During Lent at PEACE Lutheran Church, we celebrate God’s enduring promise of love for us with events that live out God’s love in community. Our free Soup Suppers are humble gatherings around a simple meal of home-made soup and bread – nourishing for body, heart and soul!
Soup Suppers start at 6:15 p.m. every Thursday during Lent. Each one is followed by a short but moving prayer service at 7 p.m. Soup suppers and prayer services this year will be on Thursdays, March 5, 12, 19, 26 and April 2 & 9 (Maundy Thursday).
If you would like to bring a pot of soup to share at any Lent Soup Supper, contact the church office at firstname.lastname@example.org or (530) 273-9631. Supper is in the Fellowship Center, and Lenten prayer service is in the Sanctuary.
Lenten Prayer Services follow each Soup Supper in the Sanctuary. These services of evening prayer are a quiet moment of music and Scripture that help us in our work of reflection and humility before God. We leave feeling thankful and praise-full for God’s many blessings in our lives — and we go out ready to live God’s love for others!
Reliving the Passion
Lent gives us a time of reflection and humility before God. We think about the ways we fall short (sheesh, that’s uncomfortable!). But we also remember how much God loves us and yearns to lift us up. God wants to embrace us and readily forgives us for every foolish mistake and big, ugly sin.
It can help us in that process to find new ways to serve God. One path takes us along a journey of Bible study. Come to our Adult Forum on Sunday mornings! Walk “the Way” with Jesus as we read Reliving the Passion by the famous theologian and writer Walter Wangerin Jr. The Adult Forum meets in the Old Fellowship Hall. Times: 9 a.m. on the FIRST SUNDAY of the month, 10 a.m. on OTHER SUNDAYS.
Another route encourages giving to those in need. The Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) offers many opportunities for generous living! One path looks at a 40-day journey of prayer and giving.
