BE AT PEACE

Welcome to Peace Lutheran Church, where our mission is to share God’s love, grow in faith, and create community.

We are a neighborhood church on the western edge of Alexandria, VA. Our congregation has about 250 active participants with around 100 in worship on any given Sunday in person and online. Our members come from all walks of life, including 12 different countries, both sides of the political spectrum, ages 0 to 100, a variety of economic situations, and diverse family/home lives.
