We extend to you a warm welcome to Peace Lutheran Church of Hollister, Missouri! We are the only congregation of the ELCA (Evangelical Lutheran Church in America) that is located in the Branson community, here in the live country music capital of the world. On Sunday mornings, our services of worship range from a style that is more praise worship at 8:30 a.m. to the more traditional Lutheran liturgy at 10:30 a.m. We offer Children's Worship during both worship hours for the young people, and a Bible discussion group for adults between the two worship hours. We certainly do welcome you to join us on Sunday mornings.

We celebrate the Resurrection of Our Lord, Jesus the Christ, as we continue on now through these days of the Easter Season. Just in case anyone has missed it, though, we repeat our Easter Good News: “CHRIST IS RISEN!! HE IS RISEN INDEED!! ALLELUIA!! AMEN!! Even in these enthusiastic words, we cannot do justice to the joy that fills this Season. Our sins are forgiven, and it's time for us truly to start living. Death is defeated, the veil is torn, and all have access to God. We celebrate our risen King, as we receive forgiveness and reconciliation. As St. Paul says, “And if Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile and you are still in your sins” (1 Corinthians 15:57 NIV). The rule of God breaks through into our troubled world, and the creation is redeemed by reversing the impact of sin and death. And we have hope for the day when all is made right, as we are promised a bodily resurrection of our own.

To carry to England the news of the Battle of Waterloo, a ship signaled to a man on shore, who relayed the word to another on a hill, and so on across Britain. The first words, “Wellington defeated” were signaled, and then the fog closed in. The message was interrupted, and all across the land people wept over the message, “Wellington defeated.” Then the fog lifted, and the communication continued with two additional words, “the enemy.” And Englishmen celebrated the victory when they received the entire message.

So it is with us in this Easter Season. The work is complete, as Jesus indicates, “It is finished” (John 19:30 NIV). Jesus' own Resurrection, and the resurrection of those who die in Him, affirm that Jesus indeed is God's promised Messiah, and our faith is not in vain. We are victorious, through Him! Praise the Lord!

Pastor Bartos
