Who is Peace? 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.

About Us

Our Beliefs

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 as beloved children of God.
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.
