Spring, 2021

We’re all fired up! Peace Lutheran Church is on the brink of a blazing opportunity!  Parishioners have done a fantastic job of lighting a fire under the $1.6 million mortgage we acquired on October 16, 2008 which allowed us to expand and build a new facility to aid us in our ministry to the community. We’ve reduced that debt to $83,653 in just 12 ½ short years. God is good!

We invite you to our mortgage burning party! We’d like to schedule it for October 31 of this year, but there are a few details we need to take care of first. Are you willing to make a sacrifice of praise? Yes, we are asking you to give s’more.

We need your help!  If each family increases its giving by $40 per month, we will be able to retire our debt by the end of October. With our congregation, it comes out to about $220 per family. Spread out over six months, that’s about $40.00 per month, or $1.35 a day. You can’t get a Caribou for that amount!

We want to thank you in advance for your help in making this happen!
(Make sure to note on your check memo or donation envelope that the funds are earmarked for debt reduction).
