From Pastor Dave Zemke:


Last month the newsletter article looked at prayer in general. Inside of the worship service we have several scripted prayers, some of them are pretty familiar. None is more familiar that the prayer our Lord Jesus taught us. This month we’re going to look at the Lord’s Prayer.

            The first thing to note is that the Lord’s Prayer is actually scripture. Matthew 6:9-13 is one place to find the prayer while Luke 11 gives us the same prayer. The fact that the prayer is part of the gospels is early evidence that the church heard the prayer and made it theirs. It’s important enough for the Apostles to make sure it got into the gospel and it really has become a standard for our prayer life.

            Luther takes the Lord’s Prayer petition by petition in his small catechism. This explanation system is probably what we’re most familiar with. His Large Catechism has an introduction where he commends us to pray. We are taught that our prayers, even the Lord’s Prayer, are valuable to God. You don’t have to be a saint or famous for God to listen to you. You also don’t have to be well spoken or give long and flowery prayers. Luther remarks that the Lord’s Prayer is proof that God doesn’t like long and fancy prayers!

            The Lord’s Prayer also offers us an opportunity to pray something when words fail us. So many times life hits us in the gut and we just don’t have words. We don’t know what to pray because the situation is too big or too terrible. This is a great time to pray the Lord’s Prayer. You’re putting God’s word on your lips, in your defense, and God surely will hear that prayer and know what you need. Personally, I’ve used the Lord’s prayer in many of these situations to great effect and can’t recommend it enough.

Additionally, where do you learn to pray? We usually start with meal prayers, bedtime prayers, and then how do you move on to pray for other things? Usually we teach this by teaching the Lord’s Prayer. If you look at the prayer is has a distinct flow. We pray for God’s will in the world, we pray for our material concerns, then pray for forgiveness, then we pray for protection and to be kept in the faith. The Lord’s Prayer really has everything all wrapped up in one nice little prayer.

            Where should we go from here? Luther recommends setting aside some time every day to pray for ourselves and our neighbors so that we don’t forget. He has morning and evening prayers for us as well as commending the Lord’s Prayer to us as well. So knowing and using this prayer is part of our daily life. I’d also suggest that we branch out a little bit. Maybe when the short little prayer is done we can focus on one petition, especially petitions that are troubling to us, and pray for a more extended period of time. Of course actually filling in all our needs of “daily bread” come to mind. But let’s not forget praying for God’s kingdom to come or for how we’d like to see His will done in our world! The bottom line is that we are called to pray and given an easy way to start talking with our God.

A Joyful December!

December was filled with lots of singing, gift making, fun crafts and joy!  The giggles and happy voices filled the church!  Along with the usual reading, writing and math, preparation for our Christmas Program filled most of our music lessons.  The children did a wonderful job at the program, sharing the “Good News” of Christmas with their families and friends!

Registration 2020- 2021!!

It’s here!  Yes, Registration for the Preschool and Kindergarten classes will begin on January 6, 2020!  We will again offer exclusive registration to all of our Preschool/Kindergarten families and Prince of Peace members for the month of January.  On February 1, we will open up Registration to the community.  Registration packets are available on the sign-in tables, on the PSK Office table and from Miss Diane.  Some classes fill up quickly, so make sure you get your Registration in early to hold your spot!

Christmas helpers!

We had many events during the month of December to celebrate Christmas.  We would like to thank all family members who helped with one or more events!  Your help makes these events successful and joyful for all!  Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

“Belle Notte!”

Wander the streets of Italy and enjoy a candlelight dinner!  Our annual Preschool/Kindergarten Auction will be held on March 14 at 5:00pm.  It is an evening full of magic and starlight!  There will be many wonderful items to bid on at both our Silent and Live Auctions.  Once again, this awesome event is free!  Tickets are limited and will be available on February 10.  We are looking for donations for both the Live and Silent auctions.  If you would like to donate an item(s) to our Auction, we will be collecting them in February.  This is a large event and our primary fundraiser.  It requires lots of parent help!  Please let me know if there is any area in which you would like to serve for this event.  Our next Auction Planning Meeting will be January 15 @ 2:45 – 3:45pm.  Please come and share your ideas and talents for this fun event!

Valentines’ Day Parties:

Our Valentine’s Day Parties are held during regular class times.  We love to have families participate!  Watch for sign-up forms or talk with your teacher for ways that you can help!
