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

From the Pastor

Can you imagine living in a society that cannot read?

Can you imagine living in a society that is afraid to ask questions?

Can you imagine trying to please God, if God really doesn’t like you?

Dr. Martin Luther, for whom our Christian faith tradition is named, was one of the first to free humanity from the Dark Ages.  Luther bravely asked tough questions challenging the stale beliefs of the bullies of his age. Luther’s writings and his translation of the Bible gave simple people something they longed to read.  Luther re-discovered that God’s love is a free gift, and we are free to serve God as God’s loving children.

Luther’s brave challenge to the rotten status quos of the Dark Ages let loose the Renaissance that has given us the freedom to read, think, question, experiment, and serve our loving God!

Thank God for Martin Luther!

LWR & Emergency Operations

Natural and human-made disasters affect hundreds of millions of people each year, and the number of people at risk growing by 70-80 million annually.

The world’s poorest suffer most acutely, since they have the fewest resources to prepare for a crisis and to rebuild afterward.

LWR’s emergency operations are designed to address the most urgent and basic needs of these communities — including women and children, who are often the most vulnerable — while also promoting sustainable recovery and building resilience to future disasters.

Approach

LWR creates lasting partnerships with local communities throughout the world.

We help vulnerable communities:

  1. identify potential risks,
  2. build response capacities before emergencies,
  3. meet immediate needs following emergencies, and
  4. move toward long-term recovery and economic development.
