STAFFING DECISION FOR 2018-2019 SCHOOL YEAR

After a lengthy meeting of the voters of Peace Lutheran Church, it was decided to call a teacher from Martin Luther College in New Ulm to replace Mrs. Krueger for next school year.  We are excited about this decision, and ask that everyone keep this in their prayers.  There is a shortage of teachers by comparison to the number of positions that need  to be filled.  Not every school will get a teacher.  Please pray that the Lord’s will be done – and we hope his will is to send us a teacher. J

Thank you for the input that we received from many of you in regard to this decision.  Your thoughts were shared with our voters this morning.
