About Prince of Peace Lutheran Church LCMS
Peace had its first service on January 2, 1966 in the American Legion Post 409
at Leo, In. On land donated by Clyde and
Lucy Cover and Family, the congregation laid the cornerstone, on
April 13, 1969, for the new church. On Sunday, June 22, 1969, at the corner of St. Joe and Schwartz roads, the first service was held in the new Price of Peace Lutheran Church building.. In 2009 we celebrated 40 years of ministry for Christ from this building.
What We Teach
Prince of Peace is a member of the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod. We confess and require our Pastors to adhere to, preach and teach according to Scripture and the confessions found in the Book of Concord. Our Pastors must teach this because they accurately confess the Christian faith of the Holy Scriptures, which we believe are in their entirety the inerrant Word of God.
To read these doctrinal positions, please take a look at our links in the sidebar.
The Divine Service and Liturgy
Prince of Peace also uses a liturgical service. Worship settings are from the Lutheran Service Book. The liturgy is derived from scripture and provides the Word forgiveness, releasing the penitent hearer from the burden of sin. Printed liturgies are also used. The liturgy is shaped so that it may deliver the Word forgiveness, releasing the hearer from the burden of sin.
Statement on the Lordís Supper
Prince of Peace celebrates the Lordís Supper on the first and third Sundays of each month. Because we believe that the bodily-presence of Christ is present in The Lordís Supper, (that is Hid body and blood given in, with, and under the bread and wine). We ask that if you are not a member of good standing in the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod, to refrain from partaking in this Holy Communion. We ask this sincerely out of brotherly love for you, in accordance with the words found in 1 Corinthians 11: ďWhoever eats and drinks without recognizing the body of the Lord eats and drinks judgment on himself.Ē If you do with to take communion, please speak to the Pastor in advance.
