Strove Tuesday and Mardi gras are often referred to as 'Fat Tuesday" . This marks the last day of feasting and partying before Lent. The next day is Ash Wednesday and the Lenten season begins. We as Christians partake of this by having ashes applied to our foreheads in the form of a cross with the words 'Remember you are dust and to dust you shall return'.
We will be spending Saturday afternoon February 22 at the Mt Angel Volksfest. Some of us Norwegians and Germans like a little accordion music, a little dance, some sausage and even a little beer. We always have a good time so join us if you like. We will car pool and leave from the Parking lot at Peace Lutheran Church 2201 N. Rosa Parks Way at 11 am .
Epiphany is a magical time in the Christian year. We celebrate the birth of Jesus and join in the chorus of joy that his birth has brought to the world.
Come and join in the festivities. We have a soup and bread dinner at 5:30, white elephant gift exchange, carol sing along and a trip under the stars to Bethlehem. It is a fun and memorial evening. Bring your children, grandchildren, or anyone you like, all are welcome.

Sunday June 9th
Following worship service
The Christian holiday of Pentecost is an event sometimes called the “birthday of the church” because it marks the day that Jesus’ disciples began to share the story of Jesus and invite others to share in their faith in Jesus as the Son of God.
On Pentecost, we invite the same Spirit that filled the disciples that day to transform our lives.
Even more important than looking backward and remembering what God did two thousand years ago, we look forward and invite the Spirit to pull us into the future.
The Holy Spirit has a way of turning things upside down. The story of Acts is all about how the lives of the disciples got turned upside down – and by extension, how the world turned upside down by this new, Spirit-filled faith.
On Pentecost we invite this disruptive presence of God into our own lives.
The fruit of the Spirit, says Paul, is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. These are what we seek to live into, how we seek to transform the world, and the evidence of the Spirit at work in our lives and in the world.
Join us as we celebrate and explore all that Pentecost means for us.
This is a first come first served set-up, so come prepared to wait your turn. The entrance in on
the Newcastle doors side of the building.

We at Peace and some of you from the community have heard these men perform before. They are amazing! Please spread the word that they are coming to Peace for our enjoyment.
A small glimse of the men's history
The four gentlemen that makeup this Ensemble are favorites of us at Peace Lutheran. These men are devout Christians that when at home in St Petersburg are active in their church homes. Kirill, Andrei, Vadim and Sergey are very personable, friendly and open armed. We enjoy their performance and getting to know them a little more each year.
We will once again have them preform after our usual Wednesday evening dinner.
They do not charge us a fee, but depend on our generousity to make coming to America to share their faith journey with us. So come to enjoy the meal and the concert and be as generous as possible.
The Bible says we are to honor our Mothers and our fathers. On the second Sunday in May in America we set aside this day each year to do just that. We celebrate the gifts we have been given in having people that love us as no other. It doesn't have to be a birth mother, it is anyone that cares for you as no one else can. Bring your special person to church on this day, celebrate where that love came from and enjoy the special event that will be brought to you that day.
Bring your family and celebrate the wondrous joy of our Risen Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Today is the best day to accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior and invite him into your heart and life.

Fat Tuesday or Mardi Gras is the celebration held the day before Ash Wednesday in the Christian Church.
Mardi Gras is a day of excessive eating and drinking.
The reason for this is to use up whatever fats and foods you have in your home to be ready for Ash Wednesday and the 40 days of fasting before Easter.
Please, make this Easter Season the reason for renewed spirit, coming to Christ and loving Peace Lutheran Church. Amen

Since Trinity Academy started giving their concerts at Peace it has been a rich blessing to us to have such talented and gifted young people in our midst. We truly enjoy watching them play and sing. To be able to see the faith and fulfilment shine thru their eyes is a joy to behold. These young adults amaze me everytime i see and hear them. They are so young, and yet dedication is seen and heard in there violins, and voices. Don't miss the chance to show them we support them in all they do.
The mission of Trinity Academy
Once again a standing ovation for the entire choir and string section of Trinity Academy. It is a joy to see their fresh, young smiling faces, to hear the talent they each have and to enjoy the artistic skill they have in drawing and painting. Thank-you to each of you for all your dedication to your labors of love.
A huge shout out to all the teachers, leaders and parents that makes this possible for these children.
