Jesus commissioned all Christians to this same purpose. We have been set free so that we might do the same for others. Like Abraham, we have been blessed so that we can be a blessing. To Love, Encourage and Serve our Neighbor is a mission and ministry we are living out here in New London, Minnesota and in the world around us.

Support our Ministry

Our ministry relies on the support of our members, community, and the public to offer all of the great services that we do. If you are feeling called to help support our ministry we have many volunteer opportunities, or you can contribute finincially.

Watch Worship

Peace Lutheran is proud to publish our worship services and some of our special events on our YouTube Channel. We also have our entire collection of recorded services for watching later. We invite you to subscribe to be notified about new services as they are posted.

About Peace

Peace Lutheran church had its start when two smaller churches Lebanon (LCA) and Trinity (ALC) voted to merge into one congregation, the vote having passed on April 25, 1971. They made it official on July 14 when a constitution was adopted, Pastors Baldwin & Nelson were called and Peace was chosen as the new name for the congregation. This background photo is of the original Church building in 1971.
