Welcome to a place for new friends
Prince of Peace Lutheran Church!

From the Pastor


Beth and I had a wonderful vacation seeing Yellowstone National Park. We saw buffalo (OK, bison) elk, antelope, moose, deer; and some of the most beautiful scenery we have ever seen! 


Then we enjoyed the cool of the Oregon coast and visited our family in Kingsburg. 


Our folks, Harold and Charlotte flew down from Napa to see Linnea and Chris’ twins, and they did not seem disappointed.  It was a wonderful vacation for us! Thank you!


About the Coming Month

One would think Jesus wants us to live like hermits, all by ourselves and with nothing! In three of the four gospel lessons in September, personal possessions and even family are named as what keeps us from the kingdom of God!  We  all have a struggles with possessions and relationships, and often we fall short of how God wills us to live.


Thank God, God helps us in our struggles and even forgives us when we fall short. Thank God that,

There is joy in the presence of the angels of God

over one sinner who repents.”
