Welcome to Peace Lutheran's website! We are glad you found us! Go ahead and have a look around!

Currently, we remain together in thought, Word and prayer. However, we are antsy. We are troubled. We see that some churches may have opened. Many have not.


Most recently COVID-19 cases have spiked in Jasper, Newton and Joplin. Our plan calls for a levelling or decrease in the number of new cases in our region over a fourteen day period. Our wait continues. Please know that monitor daily and virtually meet weekly to evaluate when our doors will be open again.


Pastor Gates put together a plan thoughtfully and prayerfully, and Bishop Candea and the PLC Church Council also approved it. Click the button below and please take time to read the plan and the phases within it. Like so much else in our world, our way of gathering, communicating and seeing each other has changed. Everything we hear and read tells us the wait will be worth our meeting again.


“I love to think of nature as an unlimited broadcasting station, through which God speaks to us every hour, if we will only tune in. “
