Support the Ministry of Peace Lutheran


Peace Lutheran is an amazing congregation!  We do so very much with so little.  But that little is actually quite a lot!  Our small sized congregation has been blessed with financial supporters who love their Lord and Savior and respond with great joy to how He has blessed them.  They know that there is nothing more beautiful than bringing people to Christ - and that by Grace we together can do so much more than we could individually.



[The Collection for the Saints]

Now concerning the collection for the saints: as I directed the churches of Galatia, so you also are to do. On the first day of every week, each of you is to put something aside and store it up, as he may prosper, so that there will be no collecting when I come.

(1 Corinthians 16:1-2 ESV)

Although participating in the worshipping body of Christ and sharing God given talents and time is so very, very important, certainly we all know that the regular offering and tithe is also essential to the work of the church.  And then even beyond that, as we are blessed by God, we are very free to make further investments into the Kingdom work.  Below are some of the special ways that you can share the blessings of God:

You can make a donation to any of these funds simply by writing a check and designating your donation with a short note.  You can send it to:  Peace Lutheran Church, 60 E. Parker St.  Scranton, PA 18509.  It will be received with thanksgiving and acknowledged with a receipt for tax purposes.  


PEACE LUTHERAN ENDOWMENT FUND:  The newly established Endowment Fund is a beautiful way that you can help establish and strengthen the ministry of the church for the coming generations!  Donations to the Endowment Fund are invested and there are bylaws and restrictions on how those monies are used, usually always protecting the principle and re-investing some of the interest.  Although anyone can contribute any amount to it at any time, endowment funds are generally most appropriate when you consider a donation to the church in your estate or will.

THE LUTHERAN ACADEMY:  If you would like your support to have more immediate effect for the Kingdom work, please consider The Lutheran Academy!  You can give just a general donation, but you may also participate in our "ADOPT A STUDENT" program where you can sponsor the tuition of a student whose family cannot afford the tuition.  You can sponsor the tuition at various levels if you cannot contribute a whole year of tuition.  

THE MISSION FUND:  The church really IS all about sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ with a dying world.  We have MANY ways that we do this here at Peace and we are constantly pulling money from the "Mission Fund" to help pay for our mission trips and support our missionaries.  Unfortunately not many folks think about putting money INTO the Mission Fund.  If you care about missions, please consider making a donation to the Mission Fund!

THE BUILDING FUND:  New roofs, furnaces, windows, etc.  Our Church building maintenance never ends.  As soon as we think everything is perfect - something else goes wrong or wears out or gets broken.  We have a beautiful house of worship which gives glory to God when people see and experience it.  If you appreciate how God has blessed us with it, please support it with a contribution to the Building Fund!

As for the rich in this present age, charge them not to be haughty, nor to set their hopes on the uncertainty of riches, but on God, who richly provides us with everything to enjoy.  They are to do good, to be rich in good works, to be generous and ready to share, thus storing up treasure for themselves as a good foundation for the future, so that they may take hold of that which is truly life.

(1 Timothy 6:17-19 ESV)
