Meet Our Worship Leaders

Welcome to Peace Lutheran Church! We’re glad you found us. We are a community of imperfect people who seek to grow together in our relationship with God and one another while keeping the gospel at the center of all that we do. I started at Peace in March 2024. I’m originally from Waunakee, WI and currently live in Frankfort Square, but have lived in Madison, Seville, Lincoln NE, Hyde Park, Uptown, and north of Pittsburgh where I served in my first call. I love spending time with family, especially my spouse Jay and our young son Eleazar.  We love to be outside, to travel, and to cook and eat together. I can’t wait to get to know you and see what God can do as we work together to serve God and others! Hope to see you at one of our worship services soon. May you know God’s love and care for you and God’s call and encouragement in your life.

- Pastor Amy Michelson


 A sincere welcome to all who find themselves searching this day, I’m Deacon Shari. I am blessed to be called to Peace to serve in both social ministry and youth ministry. These are my two greatest passions. I have a BA from Newberry College in South Carolina and a MA from the Lutheran Theological Seminary in Philadelphia. I am originally from Lawrenceville, Georgia, and am a southern girl through and through, with my love for sweet tea and my vocabulary of "fixin" and "ya’ll." My hope is that all who come to Peace seeking the gospel will find it not only in our worship life but in the service we do in the name of Christ to our community and our world; and also that every young person who walks through our doors would know that they are beloved and gifted children of God and they are wanted here just as they are. May the joy found in the name of Christ be yours this day! God’s Peace,

- Deacon Shari Simon
