Message from Pastor Valerie
The change of seasons is coming! As we left home, we saw the early maples turning a beautiful orange, and some trees beginning to be tinged with reds - and it
looks like they will be very bright this year. Beautiful! And the last two weeks at
Peace Lutheran have carried that excitement of autumn, with children starting
back to school and Sunday school; with our middle school students starting a year
of confirmation studies; and the high school youth signing up for the mission trip
and getting into the schedule of another year. How blessed we are to have all this
excitement of children and youth filling our church, and their families committing
themselves again to be nurturing them in faith, and growing with them as disciples. And we as a congregation have committed ourselves to continuing to do our
part to pray and support this ongoing discipleship.
By the time you read this, you will have elected your call committee, and had a
chance to review and respond to the Profile that our Profile Committee has prepared so well. Thus it is time to move into the next steps of the call process, with
synod staff orienting the call committee to their task and the process the ELCA
uses. Then they can begin to look at resumes (Rostered Leader Profiles or RLP's)
and choose which candidates they would like to interview. For the rest of us, it's
a time to commit ourselves to be praying for this process, humbling ourselves and
admitting our need for God's guidance and direction, asking for wisdom and discernment through the process, and praying for strength and patience and endurance for the call committee as they give much time and energy to this short-term
task that has such great and long-term impact. This time in your history is as
significant as the time when you merged two congregations and called Pastor
Wayne Deloach. Those decisions have shaped you for decades. And this call
process will shape you for the next decade and beyond. It needs our prayers!!!!
The third section of Isaiah is speaking to me, and I encourage you to read and
ponder especially chapters 55 and 62, as well as these verses from 57:14-15:
"Thus says the high and lofty one who inhabits eternity, whose name is Holy:
I dwell in the high and holy place, and also with those who are contrite
and humble in spirit…"
From chapter 55:
"Seek the LORD while he may be found, call upon him while he is near…
For my thought are not your thoughts, nor are your ways my ways, says
the LORD.
Continued on next page
For as the heavens are high above the earth,
so are my ways/thoughts higher…"
"Listen carefully to me, and eat what is good…
Incline your ear, and come to me; listen, so that you may live."
And from chapter 62:
"You who remind the LORD, take no rest, and give him no rest until he
establishes Jerusalem and makes it renowned throughout the earth…"
These chapters from 54 to 66 give us much to pray about as we watch the
Middle East and the unfolding of God's plans for Israel, but these promises are
also in some senses for the Church, which God has grafted into Israel spiritually. And there is in these chapters a call to pray, to be a part of God moving to
fulfill God's plans! It seems God wants us involved, and doesn't plan to do it
without us!
So I am calling you to special times of prayer in October, this critical month. We
will gather on Wednesday, October 1, at 5:30 p.m., on Sunday, October 5, at
9:45; and again on Wednesday, October 15, at 5:30 p.m. for prayer times, each
with a different emphasis. Please gather with us as you are able to lift up this
congregation's call and future to the Lord. God honors it when we take special
time and make a special effort to seek God with fasting and prayer. Some of
you may want to consider fasting along with these prayer times.
My last Sunday with you will be October 19, and I will be in the office until
October 24. On the 26th, you will move on to business for the next year with
budget and elections, and I will be doing continuing education the last week of
October, my last days as your interim pastor here at Peace Lutheran Church.
We're moving on! (Fram! Fram! for those of you who are St Olaf grads, or
Norwegian speakers. It's "Forward!")
Pastor Valerie
The Model for Healthy Living focus in October will be on MEDICAL.
When it comes to your medical care, you can build a partnership with your
health care provider that lets you participate in managing your medical
care. However, being your own advocate comes with
responsibility. That means educating yourself on your diagnosis by asking
questions. It means following your prescribed treatment plan -- be it abstaining from a habit, taking prescribed medications or following through
with home exercises. It also involves communicating openly and honestly
with your health care team. Yes, they have education, training and experience you don’t have, but you know yourself better than any doctor or nurse
(ahemmmmm) ever will.
Please stop by the table in the narthex for more information on all
things Medical. If you’re someone who’s 68 and you haven’t seen the
inside of a clinic since you were 12, I’m glad you feel great and appear
so healthy but pay attention to the information that’s just for you regarding
those silent killers+.
This month’s tip for communicating with someone who has
Alzheimer’s disease or advanced dementia:
Provide the solution rather than the question. For example, say, ”The
bathroom is right here,” instead of , “Do you need to use the bathroom?”
being held: Oct 7th from 4-5 pm at Amery; Oct 23rd from 4-5 pm at
Balsam Lake; Oct 27th from 1-2 pm at Balsam Lake. Call Gail Peavey,
UW Extension Family Living Agent at 715-485-8600 to register.
Wishing you a blessed fall season, Karen

Barb Hanson & Pat Adam, Ham Dinner Coordinators.
Serenity Home Meals
Thank you to everyone who signed up and made a meal for the Serenity Home
Shelter this past year! Peace members provide the supper meal at Serenity
Home located in Balsam Lake the 4th Monday of each month. This meal should be
enough to serve 22 people and a variety of foods are suggested: casseroles,
meatloaf, lasagna, chili, spaghetti, roastbeef and more! The shelter currently
has only 7 meals per month brought in by other agencies, churches, etc. Please
consider signing up as a family or with a friend in the year 2015. This is a great
service to those in our community!
Beginning Sunday, October 12th
We invite you to help fill shoeboxes for children around the world or fill
a Military Carebox at home with your family. We encourage you to pick up either a plastic
shoebox (60 have been ordered) or a US Postal Box in the narthex and fill the box at home.
Boxes will be available on Sunday, October 12th and should be returned the week of
November 9th-16th. A special blessing of all the boxes will take place at worship services
on November 17th.
If you would prefer to make a cash donation, shipping costs are needed for each box:
$7 per shoebox Monetary donations can also be made in the Narthex.
Military CareBox Project
The Out Reach Ministry is currently looking at options on what
we can do during the holidays for our military and/or veterans.
Children’s Shoebox Project:
Plastic shoeboxes will be in the Narthex and contain
the Operation Christmas Child information of what to
do to fill the box. Children can use a plastic box for
many purposes and it becomes part of the gift. Plastic
boxes do not have to be wrapped. Pick up a box in the
narthex and take it home to fill with your family. We
ask that you begin praying for the child who will
receive your box (you will choose whether a boy or girl
and the age of the child on the form included inside).
Share the love of Christ…through a box!
“Seek me with your whole being. I desire to be found
by you, and I orchestrate the events of your life with
that purpose in mind. When things go well and you
are blessed, you can feel me smiling on you When
you encounter rough patches along your life-journey,
trust that My Light is still shining upon you. Seek me
in good times; seek me in hard times. You will find Me
watching over you all the time.” (Jesus Calling Devotional)
As we begin to SEEK GOD together this year, a challenge is extended to every
member of our church family: Memorizing a Bible verse each month (in addition to our theme verse) to help teach us to Seek God with our whole heart.
October Memory Verse
“Seek first the kingdom of God…”
Matthew 6:33
“You will seek me and find me, when you seek me with all your heart.”
Jeremiah 29:13

Alice Moris & the Outreach Committee
Paul and the Early Church in Greece and Turkey
During the first 50 years after the resurrection of Jesus the Early Church experienced explosive growth as the Apostles and Paul moved out into their world
to share that good news. Much of that growth took place in the churches that
were planted in modern day Greece and Turkey and their story is fascinating. We invite you to join us in discovering that story and being inspired by
it during a journey to Greece and Turkey next April 16-27, 2015.
An informational meeting about the trip will be held at Fristad Lutheran
Church in Centuria on Thursday night, October 2nd, at 7:00 pm. The meeting
will be about an hour and will be an opportunity for you to hear about the trip
and have your questions answered. Lori Moline of Seminars International will
be with us to share all the details. In the meantime, a full informational brochure and registration form can be secured by contacting us at:
[email protected] or by calling us at 715-483-1377.
We would love to have you join us and invite you to think and pray about doing
so. It promises to be a very inspirational journey!

from our Fall Clothing Share and would
like to be able to give them more. During
the month of October I am collecting these
items at Peace and will deliver them. If

them in the labeled bin by the office. The
