Who we are
We are a community of faith that exists simply because God loves us and calls us to be together. We are here to respond to God’s love by loving our neighbor compassionately and courageously, and loving ourselves completely—imperfections, doubts, and questions included. Our purpose is simple- to love God, Neighbor, and Self.
In the Peace community, "all" means all. You're welcome here because
of who you are, not in spite of who you are. We are a Reconciling in Christ community, advocating the full welcome and inclusion of all people regardless of sexual orientation, sex, gender identity, gender expression, physical or mental ability, race, marital status, age, financial situation, medical condition, citizenship status, ancestry, or religious background.

What to expect in worship
In our traditional service, you'll experience many typical Lutheran worship practices, including a Kyrie, a sermon, communion, the reading of the Word, and the singing of hymns. In our contemporary services, you'll experience a more modern approach to worship, but rooted in the same search for spiritual connection to God through Christ.
Come as you are to worship. If you feel like dressing up, dress up. If you feel like being casual, be casual. We don’t always have it all together- we don’t expect you to either.
We serve Holy Communion at each service. Our communion policy is simple: Because we believe the Risen Jesus is the host of the meal, everyone is welcome to participate.
We have two styles, but one hope for worship: to provide a space and time where gathered communities can bring their joys and sorrows, their hopes and fears, their convictions and their questions, to God.
We hope to offer an energizing and joyful experience in our contemporary services, so we hope the following information will help you be aware of what to expect in this environment. The contemporary services (9:45am and 11am) at Peace include:
- Live music, sometimes on the louder end
- Fluorescent lighting
- A large, open gathering space, sometimes with lots of people
- Family/gender-neutral restroom at the entrance of the ConneXions Center
- Video elements with dimmed room lighting and closed captioning
Designated quiet space can be found in the Soul Café by the entrance of the ConneXions Center. Personal hearing assist devices are available at the Welcome Centers.
