PEACE begins with a smile.
– Mother Theresa
A small town welcome...
...a spacious place to grow
Caring for all of God's creatures...
Looking for a faith community?
Peace Lutheran Church is small enough that you won’t get lost in the crowd. If you are looking for a church with a small-town feel, yet a depth of vision to help you grow into the Christian you yearn to become, please visit us and see for yourself.
Our September through June Sunday schedule at Peace:
- 9:00 AM….. Sunday School/ Adult Education Hour (begins Sept. 16)
- 10:00 AM……Worship
Not too small and not too big — just right to make it relatively easy to get to know folks and feel a sense of welcome. There are some good things about being part of a small town church.
Genuine hospitality, where there is always room for one more at the table, is one of them.
I value the friendly, open spirit in this place and how people care for each other. But just as important, “small town” does not mean small-minded. Think globally, act locally: that phrase describes us well.
At Peace we seek to embody a sense of spaciousness, where there is room to ask questions, to learn from varied experiences, to consider new ways of thinking and to continue to grow in faith and understanding.
Here you will find a spectrum of ages and backgrounds and a diversity of theological perspectives, from life-long Lutherans to those who are brand new to the whole “Christian thing”.
My hope is that what binds us together is a sincere desire to grow as disciples of Jesus, to take the Gospel call to “love one another, as I have loved you” seriously, and to deepen our public witness to God’s kingdom vision of true “welcome” for all God’s children.
Come on by, and we will set a place for you to join us.
We’re proud of our deep roots in the Silvana area, but we don’t believe in staying in the past. As disciples of Jesus, we are called to journey forward, meeting the changing needs of both our local community and the wider culture.
At Peace Lutheran you will have the opportunity to experience a hands-on faith community that cares for families, helps our neighbors and engages in larger world opportunities for service.
