Join Our Community
Saturdays Starting at 5:00pm
For our 5 p.m. Saturday evening worship we use the Evening Prayer service with the addition of the confession and absolution, and Lord’s Supper liturgy from Divine service five setting from the “Lutheran Service Book” hymnal. The majority of this service is chanted. It focuses on Christ as the light of the world as we enter into the evening hours. It is a deep breath at the end of our busy fast-paced day/week. During this service we do receive Holy Communion and sing two hymns. Though the actual length may vary a little the service usually runs 45 minutes to an hour.
8:15am & 10:30am
Liturgy for our Sunday worship services is usually drawn from two divine services in the Lutheran Service book hymnal. If you are familiar with the hymn book, the services appear on the pages 184 and 151. These services alternate between singing and spoken responses. There are three scripture readings in the service and the sermon generally is based on one of those readings or the appointed Psalm for the Sunday. Hymns during the distribution of the Lord’s Supper are drawn from the “Lutheran Service Book” hymnal and a supplemental hymn book “Sing Joyfully!” This service usually lasts between an hour and an hour and fifteen minutes. Communion is offered every Sunday at 8:15 and on the 1st and 3rd Sundays at 10:30am.

About Peace Lutheran Church
A beacon of faith in our community.
Known in our community as the "Church at the Three Crosses," Peace Lutheran was founded by God fearing Lutheran families in 1917 who wished to worship their Lord in their German tongue. Today only a few of those charter member families are still represented among the congregation and we have grown and changed down through the years. However, through all those years our missionary aim has remained the same: to proclaim to the world God's Word of salvation from sin and death, celebrate the Sacraments, and Praise His Holy Name!
In the Fall of 2007, in partnership with Immanuel Lutheran Church and its preschool, we established The Lutheran Academy, Scranton, providing for our church and community a beautiful educational institution. It aims to give a Classical Christian education with a focus on the performing and visual arts.
WHAT IS THE LUTHERAN CHURCH AND WHAT DOES IT TEACH?
Peace Lutheran Church has membership in the 2.5 million member Lutheran Church Missouri Synod, a national church headquartered in St. Louis, MO. Lutherans are Christians who are committed to the historic, orthodox understanding of the Triune God and the salvation won for us in the sacrificial death of Jesus Christ. To know more about what our church teaches, please visit this page on the website of the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod.
