Creating Welcoming Communities
In the fall of 2021, Peace opened its doors to host a new office for Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Services in partnership with our local resettlement partner Lutheran Social Services of the National Capital Area. The refugee resettlement office at Peace was opened in response to the 2021 evacuation of Afghan Allies following the withdrawal of United States military forces. The people of Peace grieve with those who have lived through the uncertainty and violence of war, fled Afghanistan, and seen your people undergo such peril. Throughout our history, Peace has been a place of refuge and our members have always had a heart for this ministry. We are honored to host this office and aid in welcoming the stranger. When we are given the honor of welcoming others, we are given the honor of welcoming our very Lord. All resettlement questions should be directed to LIRS. Donations to this site our welcome.
