Because, at this point, we are a small congregation, we depend upon the gifts of our friends and former members to help us finance our ministry. Certainly our current members provide the bulk of our giving--and are indeed very generous! --but we need outside assistance in order to carry out the work we believe God has called us to do. Can you help? Ongoing or one-time gifts are greatly appreciated--and needed! Here are some options for supporting us...
· Checks can be payable to Peace Lutheran Church and mailed to us at
105 Svenson Street, Holbrook, AZ 86025
· Arrangements can be made for automatic deductions from your checking or savings account with either direct deposits to our checking account here at Peace or mailing a weekly/monthly/periodic check. Contact us for details concerning how this can be done.
· Use the convenient PayPal system (Donate Button) above or below. Just click the button and go! If you don't already have a PayPal account, setting one up is quick and easy--and we'd appreciate it!
Are you a part of the Thrivent family? If so, this wonderful financial planning organization gives away millions of dollars annually to various Christian ministries worldwide. Peace Lutheran is the recipient of several thousand dollars of benevolent money from Thrivent annually, all because investors have cited Peace to be their "Choice Dollars" recipient. If you're a Thrivent member and haven't designated any ministry to receive your "Choice Dollars" money, we'd be grateful to receive these funds. Also, each Thrivent member has one or two "Action Team Projects" which can be done annually. With each project comes a $250 VISA gift card to assist in the expenses of that project, which can be a fundraiser (e.g. Youth For Christ car wash) or service project (e.g. our Fall Work Day). By the end of 2021 we will have engaged in 32 Action Team projects, totaling $8,000 of 'seed money' benefitting both our congregation and many outside efforts (e.g. our local library). If you're not a Thrivent member, we'd encourage you to contact these good folks for assistance in stewarding the resources God has given you.

Our goal was to raise $150,000 over three years to strengthen the financial base of our congregation. Initial pledges totaled $123,962 but thus far we have exceeded that! At the end of April 2022, we've taken in $125,482--$1,000 more! Isn't that fantastic? While this is still short of our hoped-for goal of $150,000 it's nonetheless something to celebrate. The campaign officially ends on May 31, 2022 but funds will not be turned away if they're received at that. Who knows? We may still meet that $150,000 dream!
