WELCOME TO
PEACE LUTHERAN CHURCH

Please join us Sundays at 9:00 am for
Worship and Holy Communion

Welcome to Christians of every kind, long term Lutherans, people new to faith, people of any faith. Welcome to all who need strength, want to follow, who doubt, who struggle with belief. Welcome believers and questioners, and questioning believers. Here we live past the labels. Here we are welcome to celebrate and grieve, rejoice and recover, forgive and be forgiven. Here life is made new, not because we're good and earned it, or we've got it all figured out, but because Jesus loves us all.
