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.
Cancer: Now What?
Support Group for all cancer patients (past or present), their families, and support people.
Meets the first AND third Thursdays of each month in the Shalom Room.
A cancer diagnosis involves much more than just physical healing – it also involves spiritual and emotional ups and downs. Come to this FIRST gathering of a new support group in order to connect with others and help determine what this group will look like in the future.
Contact Pastor Renae with any questions.
Peace Meals is a ministry of the congregation that helps provide a meal for individuals or families who need some extra care - new baby, death in the family, illness or hospitalization, etc. You can be a part of this ministry in any of the following ways:
Take a meal to an individual, couple, or family who could use some extra care. They’re available in the Peace Meals freezer in the Coffee Corner (in the Gathering Area). Instructions are posted on the freezer.
Help prepare meals to restock the freezer. Watch the newsletter and/or bulletin for upcoming Peace Meals Prep sessions.
Donate canned fruits or vegetables - Donations can be left in the church office (labeled for Peace Meals) or placed on top of the Peace Meals Freezer in the Coffee Corner.
Donate homemade desserts - Drop off at the church office during weekdays or put in the Peace Meals freezer on the bottom shelf. Please put items in freezer-safe bags or containers and label what the items are.
Pastors and members alike can give out Peace Meals! If you have someone in mind, stop by the church office and ask how to find yours.

Prayer Shawl Group
The Peace Prayer Shawl Ministry is a small group of women who turn their love of knitting and crocheting into a prayer ministry for the benefit of members of Peace Lutheran Church. Occurs on the third Tuesday every month from 6:30PM to 8:00PM at the Emmaus Table.
This card-making and paper-crafting group meets the third Sunday of each month at 1PM in the Shalom Room to create beautiful ways to show our love and support for one another. Cards are given to members and people in the community needing a pick-me-up and reminder that someone is thinking of them.
Pulmonary Hypertension Support Group
This group meets monthly on the fourth Tuesday, in the Shalom Room, from 11:30AM to 1:30PM. It is open to those suffering pulmonary hypertension or other pulmonary diseases, and their primary caregiver. Group members are most often referred by physicians; sessions are led by group members.
