Due to the guidelines provided by Governor Northam and our Bishop, our activities, including indoor worship, are suspended until further notice. We are monitoring the situation and will keep you up to date on any changes via our ezine, our facebook page and this website.
Worship with us online on Sundays at 8:30 and 10 am.
Videos of worship services are available after each service on our facebook page or on the online worship page of this website.
Please practice social distancing and do not be afraid. God is with us.
“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 4:6-7)
worship at peace lutheran church
As a faith community we gather for worship seeking God. It is through Bible readings, music, thought-provoking messages, prayers, and in the bread and wine of communion that we encounter Christ and are renewed.
All worship services invite you to come as you are (no dress code)
and to participate in Holy Communion.
Worship Times (when not under restrictions):
Traditional Liturgical Worship: 8:30 am
This service has traditional hymns, organ or piano music, and uses the Lutheran Book of Worship and a traditional worship structure. Communion is shared at the altar with individual bread and cups. Gluten free bread is available.
Children are welcome at this service, too! A special time and message are provided for them. Younger children are also welcome to visit our nursery.
While "traditional," this service is by no means "stuffy."
Contemporary Praise Service: 10:00 am
This service features an amplified praise band (guitars, drums, song leaders), contemporary songs, and a more casual feel with the same Bible verses and sermon as the traditional service. Communion is shared by intinction (dipping the bread into the wine or grape juice). Gluten free bread is available.
Children are always welcome in worship and a special time and message are provided for them. Younger children are also welcome to visit our nursery with their parents.
Both services follow the format of Gathering, Word, Meal and Sending - see below - and include music, scripture, a message and fellowship.
Our nursery is open for you during all worship services, and the service is broadcast in the nursery. Children are always welcome in worship, whether wiggly or calm!

WHAT IS LUTHERAN WORSHIP LIKE?
Lutheran worship typically uses the following format:
During the opening part of worship, we offer a song, a greeting through scripture, and also a welcoming word. We confess our sins, along with our brothers and sisters, and we are offered forgiveness. We also pray a Prayer of the Day together. This part of the service can be brief or extended, depending on the time in the church year.
