When we share the peace with fellow parishioners at St. Paul Lutheran Church in Runge as is done in churches worldwide, we are wishing someone to be well, to be complete, to be whole and have a deep relationship with God. That understanding of peace comes from the world from which Jesus comes. Jesus wants us to trust Him and be in a close relationship with Him and experience peace.

A worldly definition of peace is absence of war. When we ask God for peace, we don't mean keeping us from conflict. Following Jesus will not bring an absence of war and misunderstandings.

God gives us His Word, the Bible, for guidance. We look around us and wonder what the future holds. We have questions about the direction of our nation and our world. But when we open God's Word, we receive profound comfort. We are reminded on every page that kings, countries, and economies don't hold the fate of the world; only God does, and He is a God of comfort and love. He has a future and a hope for us.

Sunday morning worship services at St. Paul Lutheran Church in Runge begin at 8:30 a.m. followed by fellowship and Bible Study.

Everyone is welcome to come and study the Word of the Lord. St. Paul Lutheran Church in Runge is affiliated with North American Lutheran Church whose core values are: Christ-Centered, Mission-Driven, Traditionally-Grounded, and Congregationally-Focused.
