Since the resignation of Pastor William J. Sappenfield in October 2013, we have welcomed Minister Bill Krejci serving as the Intentional Interim Minister for the period until a new pastor is called.
We invite you to share in the love and grace of God through the fellowship of Peace Lutheran Church. Peace is a diverse community, with people from all over the Austin area. We share a belief that a relationship with Jesus and each other helps us to live more deeply and better serve the communities around us and around the world.
Peace Lutheran Church welcomes all people to our Christ centered community of faith to worship, learn and serve.
We have scheduled for 20 volunteers to help with the Capital Area Food Bank's Mobile Food Pantry. In the past we have helped at the main sorting center in Austin. This time we'll be out helping to distribute the food at a location that doesn't have access to a food pantry.
Time: Saturday, May 3rd, 8:30 am – 11 am
Location: CAFB Mobile Food Pantry at Bastrop Memorial Stadium
Our practice of stewardship starts with looking at how God has come down to us in love. Stewardship begins with God and how God has shown love for us. We are first receivers. We belong to God and all that we have belongs to God. Out of this receiving, we are freed in Christ to love, give, and serve.
God's love comes down to us through Jesus Christ. To quote John 3:16, "For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him may not perish but may have eternal life." God loved us so much that God sent Jesus to die for us to bring us salvation and new life!
There is a lot of excitement as Peace moves into the next phase of the process to select the outreach ministries the congregation will support. On Sunday, March 30th, the Vision team held the Big Lunch. Along with great food provided by Rick and Brenda Johnson, this was an opportunity to hear from speakers representing the two ministries currently under consideration:
becoming a host church for the InterFaith Hospitality Network (IHN) which provides housing year-round for homeless families. Host churches serve 4-6 times a year, for a week at a time.
opening a food pantry to be hosted one day a week at Peace and staffed by members of Peace and members of other local congregations and the community.
