Peace Lutheran in Hewitt gathered after Sunday services on May 19 to dedicate their newly completed narthex, nursery, and classroom. The congregation joyfully asked for God's blessings on their new space and began with a reading from Psalm 127.

Pastor Rynearson then spoke important words, reminding the Peace Lutheran Church family that "since the Lord has taught us in His holy Word that all things are holy when sanctified by the Word of God and prayer, it is fitting that we bless and sanctify this narthex, nursery, and classroom to be a place where the Lord's will is done and His name is glorified." 

The faithful support of the congregation continues, with pledges and donations to the Burning Bright Campaign nearing $200,000.
