Welcome to a place for new friends
Prince of Peace Lutheran Church!
Newsletter for June, 2017
FROM THE PASTOR
The Holy Spirit is simply the spirit of God!
If our goal is to be more like Jesus, the Spirit of God is what helps us. This 500th anniversary of the Reformation is a good time to remember what Luther taught us:
“I believe that by my own understanding or strength I cannot believe in Jesus Christ my Lord or come to him, but the Holy Spirit has called me through the gospel, enlightened me with his gifts, made me holy and kept me in the true faith…” It’s the Spirit of God that does all the work!
This June we celebrate God’s Spirit of peace, purpose, mission, and commitment.

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.
LWR creates lasting partnerships with local communities throughout the world.
We help vulnerable communities:
