     Annual Christmas Bazaar

             & Bake Sale

      November 17, 2018

     


Our annual Christmas Bazaar and Baked goods sale will be held November 17 in our Fellowship Hall.   We have a variety of vendors selling their wares in a cheerful and welcoming environment. We have space available to folks that are interested in hosting a table. We have a couple dedicated Norwegians that still make Lefse and Kringla for our baked goods table.  The lefse goes fast so don't miss out and come early and stay late.  Our table rental fees and the profit from the baked goods table go to the Peace Lutheran Church Womens group.  They in turn help various organizations and individuals with funding throughout the year.  Each year we have volunteers in the kitchen making savory soups and sandwiches for a hearty lunch. A portion of the proceeds  from the sale of lunches goes to the Community Transitional School at 6601 NE Killingsworth in Portland Oregon. 

If you would like to reserve a table contact our Office at 503-289-1070. We will get back to you as soon as possible. 

Reformation Sunday at Peace

October 28th, 2018 10:30 to 11:30

For Lutherans and many other Protestants in America, the last Sunday in October is celebrated as Reformation Sunday. Reformation Sunday honors Martin Luther's bold action on October 31st, 1517. On that date Luther posted his statement of faith, known as the 95 Theses, on the door of Castle Church in Wittenberg, Germany, thus beginning the Protestant Reformation. In some parts of Europe, Reformation Day is a civil holiday celebrated on October 31st, a day to commemorate the vast social and political change that resulted from Luther's actions.

God's work - our Hands

Our project for this year will take place on September 14th, beginning around 9:00 AM and ending about 3:00 PM at the Harvest Homes Retirement Center, 6921 N. Roberts Ave in Portland. This is where some of our beloved members spent their last years of their lives. 

When we approched Rick Moyer project director of Harvest Homes with our wish to help them in some small way for all they do and have done, it was met with joy and thankfulness.   Our task will includes as many of the following as time allows. 

1. Washing windows inside and out,

2. Power washing the front deck

3. clearing cobwebs inside and out

4. cleaning the heat-pumps around the site.

5. Pruning trees around the site.

We will have a sign up sheet at the September 2nd and 9th Worship services for whatever project you would like to help with. 

Don't hesitate to offer to bring lunch for hungry workers and residents always welcome visitors. 

If you would like a ride to the site please contact our office.  503-289-1070

Thank-you

God granted each of us different gifts. The residents and employees of Harvest Homes were thank-ful for the generous gift of time and ability given to them on this special day.  The windows got washed, inside and out, the cobwebbs got cleared, and the patios washed down.  Now the sunshine from outside could be also enjoyed inside.

A heartfelt thank-you to all that participated.


From Legacy

              A free lesson on Slip, Trip and Fall       

       September 9, 2018

If you have ever know anyone that has had a broken  bone, you know it is not a fun experience.

As a parent or grandparent you may have cared for a child that broke a bone perhaps playing sports.

We know that younger people generally heal better and faster than those of us that are of a little "older" age.

Is this fair? No way! Do we look forward to precious time spent recovering from a broken hip or a new knee or any number of falls we have the potential to have happen to us?  The answer is no!  So our best defense against slips, trips and falls is valuable information on how we can avoid them in the first place.  

We will be hosting a team from Legacy Health Care next Sunday morning September 9th from 9am to 10am, in our Fellowship Hall.  All are welcome and encouraged to participate.  No appointment necessary just drop in at 2201 N Rosa Parks Way, Portland Oregon 97217.  Come and enjoy a cup of coffee while you learn. 

Thank-you Legacy Health

Thank-you Legacy Health Care for providing the members of Peace Lutheran Church the opportunity to  learn more about the dangers that falling present to us as senior citizens.  

A special thank-you to Simone Carter for the wonderful and very informative presentation  you gave. We learned so much from you and want to you to know we appreciate the wealth of information you made available to us.
