Who We Are

A landmark in the Puyallup Valley, Peace Lutheran Church was founded by German settlers in 1898. The building was built in 1892 by Ezra Meeker (himself a Unitarian), and we purchased the building in 1900. Today we are a growing and active congregation celebrating our rich heritage and embracing the future.

Our Services are Sunday mornings at 8:15 and 10:45.

Sunday School and adult education is offered on Sunday mornings from 9:30 to 10:30 (during the school year).

Our Services

What are services like?
Followers of the Way is an original setting written by Mark Smith, our Cornerstones director. It is intended to be a reflection of the history of our worship at Peace. In addition to our liturgies, we have a Peace Choir, a handbell choir (Resounding Joy), and a seasonal Brass Choir. Cornerstones is also open to anyone over 14 who is wanting to learn aspects of leading worship through music and voice. We offer a variety of liturgical music settings here at Peace, and they aren’t always at the same time slots every Sunday. Unless otherwise noted, all service settings contain a celebration of Eucharist. In other words, we serve Communion every week at both services. We have three music leaders: Joan Linden on organ, Jill Burch on piano, and Mark Smith leading the Cornerstones music group. At this time, Joan Linden plays the ELW 4 setting, Jill Burch plays the ELW 4 and Now the Feast settings, and Cornerstones play the Liturgy of Life and Followers of the Way settings. ELW 3 and 4 are Classic Organ settings in the Evangelical Lutheran Worship book which you may recognize as Settings 1 and 2 from the Lutheran Book of Worship (the green worship book before the ELW). Now the Feast is a worship setting written by Marty Haugen and inspired by Holden Village. Liturgy of Life is a contemporary setting that we’ve been doing at Peace for many years. Some of the music we’ve been using in this service was coincidentally selected to be a part of ELW setting 8.
