We’ll be celebrating worship at 10am every Sunday from now through September.
Each family is being asked to alter their worship patterns for a season – for the sake of the mission. This is a simple but profound way to sacrificially contribute to the building of our mission, “Receive, Invite and Invest in God’s Power and Peace.”
Seasonal attendance no longer supported two worship services which inadequately illustrated our passion for God’s vision and mission. The phrase discussed was, “emptiness = awkwardness” - i.e., it became awkward to welcome visitors. We’re the third of five area LCMS congregations to reduce worship offerings out of season.
Pastor Karl initiated the conversation after focusing on what would best serve our mission; research from area LCMS congregations and our history at Peace.
His proposal was taken to the Elders for prayer and conversation, then to the Church Council for discussion and consensus.
Lastly, “Let’s Talk About It” 5 voluntary small groups discussions were held at 5 different times of day.
The primary purpose was to practice loving and respectful conversation when we disagree while focusing beyond personal preferences to mission-mindedness.
Secondarily, it was to begin to grow our partnership relationship; thirdly to make sure nothing was missed in the recommended proposal.
