I hope these pages reveal to you how God is working through the people and ministries at Peace! We’re a multiethnic, multigenerational urban congregation in the heart of the beautiful Hilltop neighborhood of Tacoma, Washington. We’ve been a worshiping community at our location, S. 21st and Cushman, for over 100 years!
Our mission: Compelled by the love of God and our faith in Jesus Christ, Peace Lutheran Church, a diverse people of faith, in partnership with Peace Community Center, seeks to realize God’s dream for the world through worship, learning, giving, and serving.
Our vision: We believe God’s vision for Peace is to be a diverse community of faith in the Hilltop where all are welcome – a community that is Spirit-filled, compassionate, healthy, reconciled, and just.
Peace Lutheran Church seeks to be a place of welcome and peace.
The colorful mural by Dimitri Kadiev to the left graces the alcove leading to the sanctuary at Peace Lutheran Church. Its inspiration is the theme, “All Are Welcome at the Feast.” Peace Lutheran Church and Peace Community Center in Tacoma, Washington, are a place where all are welcome at the feast, where the variety of people and gifts of our Hilltop neighborhood and larger community are shared and celebrated. We are rich in spiritual, ethnic, cultural, and generational gifts, to name a few. The Peace community is people! We are God’s children—created, gifted, redeemed by God. The meal we share together is one of spice, laughter, and love in Jesus’ presence. We gather every Sunday to be nourished by God’s Word, the meal of Holy Communion, and the support of the faith community. We grow in faith in Bible study and small groups. We give of ourselves to serve God by serving one another and the world.
