Instead of being “the most wonderful time of the year”, Christmas comes with a fair amount of stress, sadness, and anxiety.
We all are in need of finding peace. Yet, peace is always found in the same place—in the Prince of Peace lying in the manger. He speaks to our stress, grief, and fear by enfolding us in his love…a love that not even death can overcome. When we center our hearts and thoughts on him, we find our Peace.
What to expect
At Christmas, we celebrate the Christ child as the light of the world. Carols are sung, candles lit, and the Word of God comes to life in the reading of scripture, a hope-filled message, and Holy Communion.
The 1:00PM service is our family service with music led by one of our praise bands and special music by our youth choirs. Our other services are filled with the traditional carols that warm our hearts with special music from the Peace Brass at 5:30PM and 10:00PM. The 4:00PM service will be interpreted for the Deaf.
Worship will be about an hour and all services include communion and candlelight. Dress as you feel comfortable.
Worship at Peace is for all ages, so expect a worship service that adapts to the needs of multi-generations. There are busy bags for little hands and comfortable seats for tired legs.
How to find us
Peace is located at the corner of 41st Street and Larch Avenue with the entrances on all sides of the church.
There is a large parking lot that wraps around the building and street parking available on Larch Ave & 43rd St.

More Christmas at Peace…
Tuesday, December 18th
A service for those in special need of comfort during the season. Any kind of loss, particularly that of a loved one, may make Christmas difficult to celebrate. The Blue Christmas worship service will provide an opportunity to join together with others in quiet prayer and meditation, to be honest about the difficult feelings one may be experiencing, and to focus on God’s peace and healing love.

Christmas Eve worship…a few days early
Schedule tight this year? Traveling out of town before Christmas Eve? Want less crowding during worship? Whatever the reason, this service will be a full blown Christmas Eve service with carols, communion, and candles!
