Sunday School and Bible Class

Sunday School at Peace Lutheran Church begins at approximately 9:45 a.m. with a brief opening in the Fellowship Hall. Teachers and students then proceed to their classes at approximately 10:30 a.m. If you are a guest, please ask a Greeter, Elder, or Usher where the class for your child(ren) meets.  Other parents are also more than happy to help you.

Classes for Children

Classes are available for children ages 4 through 18.  The children's classes follow a carefully crafted  "Enduring Faith" curriculum developed by Concordia Publishing House.  Regardless of the age of the child, the goal at Peace Lutheran is for children to leave their Sunday School classrooms with the ability to tell their parents about the lesson that was studied.

For more information, please contact Ann Riggelman at (254) 420-4729.  

Classes for Adults

Adult Sunday School class is led by Pastor Gary Oehlerts. Pastor Oehlerts' class meets in the Fellowship Hall and on March 20 began a study of Matthew.

How Did We Get That Song?

Have you ever wondered about the origin of some of the songs which we sing in our openings?  Who wrote them?  When did they write them?  Did they write other songs?  Now Pastor Albrect is working to answer those questions for you with a brief history of the opening song sung each Sunday.  Below you will find the most recent history.  As time goes by this listing will grow.
