People of Peace are welcome to join its Share Team in a meal celebrating the recovery efforts at Devlac Hall at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, May 24, at Peace. Staff and residents will be here, and the Peace band will provide after-dinner music.

A gift basket will be shared with the Devlac program for residents' needs. The following donations are very much appreciated: stationery/envelopes, nail polish and polish remover, AA and AAA batteries, toothbrushes, toothpaste, floss, chewing gum, shampoo, conditioner, and flip flops in various sizes.

Want to attend or help out? There is a sign-up sheet in the Peace lobby. Questions? Contact Esther Nagel at 419-669-2226.

Peace's Annual Community Yard Sale is slated for Saturday, June 24, and the Share Team invites you to spread the word and consider renting a space to sell your own items as well. Registration forms can be obtained by emailing

Proceeds from Peace's tables support our mission and ministry. Donated items may be brought to Peace and placed in the Fellowship Hall beginning Sunday, May 28. We appreciate fashion accessories, but the Share Team has found that clothing does not sell well as a general rule (except for vintage) and asks you to donate clothes to others. There is a recommended donations list on the second page of the Yard Sale Information brochure available on the tall table near the office at Peace. Vendor forms included there as well.

The sale will be held from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. June 24, rain or shine. Help is needed to set up and tear down, and the Share Team will post a sign-up sheet at Peace.

Thank you to everyone for all that you do to make the sale such a great success, which is measured by the good time had by vendors and shoppers and visitors and the connections made among neighbors!

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 ...

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.

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