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 300 active members with around 120 in worship on any given Sunday. 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. We consider the relationships at Peace like family – especially important as many of us live far from our original homes.
What binds us together is God’s reconciling and forgiving love, revealed most perfectly in Jesus Christ. Each of us is equally in need of God’s grace. As modern disciples of Jesus we engage in scripture, prayer, worship, service, conversation, study, and fun as we seek to live out our baptismal callings.
Peace is a congregation of the Metropolitan DC Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA). We are a Reconciling in Christ (RIC) congregation meaning that we welcome people of all sexual orientations and gender identities. We are committed to the truth that all people are welcome in God’s kingdom.
If you are interested in finding out anything more about Peace or if you have special needs or prayer requests, please reach out to us.
Be at Peace, Pastor Sarah
