    We would like to extend a warm welcome to Brittney Wilson, our new Director of Little Lambs Preschool. Brittney has a passion for early childhood education. She is originally from the Sioux City area and has her master’s degree in management with a double focus in human resources and leadership. She has worked with children off and on since she was 18, including operating an exclusively overnight home childcare. Additionally, Brittney has worked in several areas of the nonprofit industry, including at The Warming Shelter and Siouxland Mental Health. 

    Brittney is genuinely excited to meet each and every one of you and to build strong relationships with both students and their families. Open communication is key, so please feel free to reach out with any questions, concerns, or ideas. Let us work hand in hand to create a vibrant and enriching preschool experience for our little ones. Please help welcome Brittney into the Shepherd of the Peace family.

  • 2024 Bible Reading Plan

    Bible Project is a nonprofit, crowdfunded organization that produces 100% free Bible videospodcastsarticlesclasses, and educational Bible resources to help make the biblical story accessible to everyone everywhere. From page one to the final word, we believe the Bible is a unified story that leads to Jesus. This diverse collection of ancient books overflows with wisdom for our modern world. As we let the biblical story speak for itself, we believe the message of Jesus will transform individuals and entire communities. Many people have misunderstood the Bible as a collection of inspirational quotes or a divine instruction manual dropped from Heaven. Most of us gravitate toward sections we enjoy while avoiding parts that are confusing or even disturbing. Our Bible resources help people experience the Bible in a way that is approachable, engaging, and transformative. We do this by showcasing the literary art of the Scriptures and tracing biblical themes from beginning to end. Rather than taking the stance of a specific tradition or denomination, we create materials to elevate the Bible for all people and draw our eyes to its unified message.

  • Prayer for Little Lambs

    Lord, we thank you for bringing us to another day. We acknowledge that we are not worthy of the things that you do for us. Even so, you have done great things for us. You have brought us here and given us this great facility and staff. We are open and ready to serve: we need families to come. Give us boldness to declare your goodness. Give us faith so that we don’t lose heart. Give us patience to wait on your timing. Lord, hear our prayer—answer us. Send to us the families you have already chosen that we may serve them and be a blessing to them. Bless this place with your gospel of peace. Take away anything that stands between Little Lambs and your plan for our success. Draw us closer to you during this uncertain time. Thank you for answering before we even ask. Our prayer is in Jesus’ name and for his sake. Amen.
     

  • Luther's Morning Prayer

    In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen. I thank you, my heavenly Father, through Jesus Christ, Your dear Son, that You have kept me this night from all harm and danger; and I pray that You would keep me this day also from sin and every evil, that all my doings and life may please You. For into Your hands I commend myself, my body and soul, and all things. Let Your holy angel be with me, that the evil foe may have no power over me. Amen.

  • Luther's Evening Prayer

    In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen. I thank you, my heavenly Father, through Jesus Christ, Your dear Son, that You have graciously kept me this day; and I pray that You would forgive me all my sins where I have done wrong, and graciously keep me this night. For into Your hands, I commend myself, my body and soul, and all things. Let Your holy angel be with me, that the evil foe may have no power over me. Amen.
