A Message from Pastor Michael R. Bonham, Peace Lutheran Church
Welcome to Peace Lutheran Church, Gulf Shores, Alabama. We look forward to welcoming you in person.
Peace be with you! You might be wondering what is it that Peace offers. We too are a people living in a busy, hurting world that seek to find peace in our lives. We have experienced the hurt of the world and the peace God offers. We are a people focused on the grace God gives us through his own desire.
"God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son that whosoever believe in Him should not perish but have eternal life." (John 3:16)
Although often quoted, we believe in many ways the Church has lost the simplicity of this message. We refocus on it knowing that God does love us.
If you feel harried and hurried, needing a place to heal or rest, come join us at Peace Lutheran Church. Come and see, for we have experienced the Lord and he is good. We look forward to welcoming you.
Pastor David Zandt arrived at Peace Lutheran the first week of November. He will be working with Pastor Bonham until December 16 before taking over all responsibilites as Pastor at Peace. Pastor David and his wife Kristi, and their four children (Lexie, Marissa, Noah, and Elijah) are coming to southern Alabama from Jefferson, Wisconsin.
"Having been serving in pastoral ministry for over 18 years, I have a passion to create and sustain an environment for others to be equipped, uplifted, comforted, encouraged, empowered, and strengthened to meet both the joys and challenges of life, and to ignite within them a Spirit and joy-filled discovery of who they are in Christ to live out the "best-version-of-themselves" in daily living and interacting with others. I'm looking looking forward to serving the wonderful hearts of those at Peace Lutheran, and to begin this new and exciting opportunity to reach out to the surrounding communities of Gulf Shores and Foley with the life-changing power of Jesus!"
"I want to express a special note of gratitude to Pastor Michael and Barb Bonham for their sincere hospitality and support, and for the remarkable gift of passion, teaching and preaching, and pastoral leadership that Pastor Bonham has brought in his service to the members of Peace Lutheran and to the surrounding community. It will be an immense honor for me to serve in commitment and love the very ones that Pastor Bonham and Barb have touched through their many years of service, dedication, vision, and love."
