Our Mission ... Creating Christ-Connected Community

Who's welcome here ... Everyone

Blessing the ground

Peace is an inclusive community open to all regardless of ability, age, church experience, race, creed, gender, cultural background, political bias or sexual orientation. One's presence is all that is needed to participate in the life of Peace.

Who are we ... A Water Family

In the freeing, living waters of baptism, we are joined to Christ and to one another as brothers and sisters called to be servants of God's grace in the world.

The community life of Peace is grounded in worship and dedicated to being active in mission, celebrating, learning, and sharing the love of God in Christ Jesus. Peace is a growing and generous congregation that offers a sense of belonging and friendship filled with a great spirit of cooperation and support.

Established in 1969, Peace is an active member of the Northwestern Ohio Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA).

Where are we ... Bowling Green, Ohio

Peace Church is located at 1021 West Wooster Street, near the corner of West Wooster and Martindale, with our south entrance and additional parking at the corner of Pearl and Martindale. Peace is just west of Wood County hospital and next door to the fire station (click here for a map).

Worship ...

stained glass window (© Suncreek UMC) depicting bread and chaliceWorship is primary and central to the community life at Peace. It is a sacred time to connect with God's Spirit and one another. Worship at Peace is casual and uplifting. It celebrates God's love for all and it builds one another up for Christ's sake in the world.

Holy Communion, where bread is broken, wine is poured and the Lord's meal is shared, is celebrated each week at each service. It is open to all. There are no requirements, restrictions or judgement on whether you participate or not!

Everyone is welcome at worship, from the youngest and most energetic to the more slow and steady in pace!

For those who choose, a staffed nursery for the wee ones is available on Sunday mornings at 10:30 and Thursday evenings at 7.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact me (419-352-0241 or pastordeb @ You are welcome here!
