Promoting ministry, growth, & educational opportunities, tying our present & future together.

What is the Peace Foundation?

The Peace Lutheran Church and School foundation provides financial resources and support for sustaining the ministries of both the Church and School. A gift to the Foundation helps us meet current and future needs and makes a difference in the life of the Congregation as a whole. It is “a gift that keeps on giving”.
