Covid-19 Response update

Grace and Peace to you all,

            At our March council meeting, church council voted to suspend all church gatherings through April 4th.  Given the ever-evolving nature of our current situation, we have decided to suspend all in-church gatherings until further notice. 

            Rest assured, even though we will not be able to be church together in the same room, we will still be church together.  For as long as this lasts, I will continue to record Sunday services including scripture readings, a sermon, and prayers.  These videos will be posted to the church’s Facebook page, YouTube channel, and website.  You can find the Peace’s YouTube channel simply by going to and searching for: Peace Lutheran Church Ashland, Ohio.  You can also watch these videos on the church’s website under the “Sermons” tab at the top of the homepage.  I have also been emailing links to these videos to all those I have emails for.  If you have an email and would like to receive those links, please contact me and let me know. 

            I am always available to you by phone.  Please, if you need to get in contact with me, call my cell phone instead of calling the church.  There will likely be days long stretches where no one will be in the church building to get messages.  I’m here for prayer, if you just need to talk, or if you need help with anything at all.   

            I would also like to thank everyone for your ongoing support of Peace Lutheran and our ministries through this time both in prayer and monetarily.  I ask that you continue to hold your Peace family in your prayers and please continue to send in your offerings either through the mail or online through our website, as you are able, so that we can pay our staff and make that one less worry during an already difficult time. 

We may not know exactly what lies in the days and weeks ahead, but we carry with us the same sure and certain hope we always have.  Christ is with us, and we belong to God.  I look forward to the day we gather together again in person.  Until that time, we remain gathered together through the power of the Holy Spirit.  Continue to love one another, be kind to one another, check in with one another, and pray for one another.  We will get through this, and what a day of celebration that will be. 

In Christ, Pastor Karen
