When you come to our place here on the hill overlooking Table Rock Lake and the beautiful White River Valley, you will always be warmly welcomed. We are the people of Peace Lutheran Church of Hollister, the only congregation of the ELCA (Evangelical Lutheran Church in America) in the Branson area. We are proud to be a part of the live music capital of the world and offer opportunities regularly for musical enjoyment here in our building. We invite you to worship with us on Sunday morning; traditional Lutheran liturgy is at 10:30 a.m., and a little different style of worship is at 8:30 a.m. Each worship hour also offers Children's Worship for the young folks, and an adult Bible discussion group at 9:30 a.m.

We are now into our fifth year of ministry here in this location, and in 2014 we celebrated the 25th anniversary of the chartering of our congregation. A number of local entertainers helped us to celebrate the day. The Lord has richly blessed us and continues to lead us forward in ministry. In the words of our Statement of Purpose, we “Reach Out to Serve Others in Christian Love.” Toward that goal, several times each year we sponsor fund raising events, donating the proceeds to local ministries and charitable groups, whose purpose is to assist some of those who are in need.

We are now winding down the Season of Lent, preparing to move into a remembrance of those final events in the earthly life of our Lord Jesus. The Passion of Our Lord begins with our Palm Sunday celebration at 8:30 and 10:30 a.m. on Sunday, March 29. Maundy Thursday Holy Communion will be at 7:00 p.m. on April 2. Good Friday Tenebrae Service of Shadows will be on April 3 at 1:00 p.m. Easter Vigil begins our celebration of the Resurrection of Our Lord on Saturday, April 4, at 7:00 p.m., with the use of hand candles and remembrance of our baptism into the Christian faith. The celebration then concludes with Holy Communion at our festive Easter celebrations on Sunday, April 5, at 8:30 and 10:30 a.m.

We encourage you to join us in our ministry here at Peace Lutheran Church. The Eucharist is normally offered on the first, third, and fifth Sundays of each month. All those who receive the elements in their home congregations are welcome to join us here. Anointing with healing oils also has become a part of our ministry, and we invite you to be with us at any time. Come in and be a part of God's work in these lovely Ozark hills.
