Adult Faith & Service Opportunities

Jesus says, “For where two or three are gathered in my name, I am there among them.”
Matthew 18:20

God’s vision for Peace is to be a community that is healthy. A healthy community has spiritual, physical, emotional, financial, mental and social health grounded in God. This means cultivating healthy relationships among family members, neighborhoods, our faith community and the world.

The following are ministries for adults at Peace Lutheran Church. More information and registration can be found Sunday mornings at the Koinonia Corner, a table meant to help people participate more fully in the life and ministry of the church. You can also email the Office Coordinator at plcadmin@peacetacoma.org for sign-up or other ways to get involved.
