Peace Lutheran is an intimate and welcoming ministry located in one of the most culturally diverse neighborhoods in the Detroit Metro Area. The Lutheran tradition has long taught that authentic Christian faith is not bound to one culture or another -- but given by God to all people through the gift of baptism, the inspiration of the Bible, the nourishment of Holy Communion, and the presence of the Holy Spirit. The authentic Christian church is a body made up of many different parts (1 Corinthians 12) and bound together by selfless love (1 Corinthians 13).
To reflect this diversity, we have partnered and share our a facility with four quite different congregations that maximize the ministry that can done out of one church building. We are privileged to be a multicultural, multiracial, multi-talented, inter-generational, and multi-denominational witness to the northern inner-ring suburbs of Detroit -- and a community of faith truly greater than the sum of our parts.
Most worship services at Peace Lutheran are held in the sanctuary (pictured above).
What people do and say in the spirit of God's love urgently matters in this day and age. The God Jesus reintroduced to humanity is a God who seeks the lost and tends the broken, a God who puts mercy ahead of law and compassion before custom, a God who forgives sinners and welcomes all people to the table. This God is never what committed Christians or the world at-large expects.... yet is just the kind of God we desperately need today.
The Body Of Christ
Paul writes: Each one of us has a body with many parts, and these parts all have different uses. In the same way, we are many, but in Christ we are all one body. Each one is a part of that body, and each part belongs to all the other parts. We all have different gifts, each of which came because of the grace God gave us. If our gift is to speak God's message, we should do it according to the faith that we have. Anyone who has the gift of serving should serve. Anyone who has the gift of teaching should teach. Whoever has the gift of encouraging others should encourage. Whoever has the gift of giving to others should give freely. Anyone who has the gift of being a leader should try hard when he leads. Whoever has the gift of showing mercy to others should do so with joy. Your love must be real. Hate what is evil, and hold on to what is good.
~ Romans 12: 4-9
