Peace Lutheran Church began another chapter as they installed a new pastor on January 15, 2012.  Pastor Jeffery Merseth officially took over the duties of his office during a 4:00 p.m. installation service.  The service was well attended and was celebrated with a pot luck meal following the service.

Rev. Merseth's father, Pastor John Merseth preached the message and gave both the newly installed pastor and the congregation items to contemplate as they begin a new relationship together which will serve the spreading of the Gospel.  Both pastor and congregation have manifold responsibilities to each other as they grow in their relationship with Christ and seek to spread the news that Jesus Christ died for sinners.

Pastor Merseth, his wife Megan, and their three children (Judah 4, Andrew 2, and Enoch 3 months) moved here from far northern Minnesota.  They lived approximatly 30 miles from the Canada border.  We welcome Pastor Merseth and his family into our family here at Peace Lutheran Church.  We pray that his presence and work in our midst would be a blessing to us and to those with whom we come into contact.
