Support Groups at Peace Lutheran

“Accept one another just as Christ accepted you, in order to bring praise to Christ.” Romans 15:7

Peace Lutheran offers a number of support groups, some of which are a direct ministry of the church and others that meet at Peace on a regular basis.  Often it is those who have similar experiences who are best able to listen to and offer care to others who are faced with challenges. From time to time other support groups form around specific needs.

For information, review the descriptions below or call 361-3683.
