How We Got Started
Peace Lutheran Church was started by the Mission Board of the Michigan District in 1960. A multi-purpose building served the needs of the mission congregation. The Rev. Oscar Gerkin was called as missionary at large. On July 6, 1960, the congregation was officially established as Peace Lutheran Church of Warren, Michigan.The April 1961 meeting of the Voters’ Assembly gave final approval for the establishment of a Christian Day School. The school was operated in cooperation with Trinity Lutheran of Warren and was opened in September of the same year. Peace Lutheran School became separated from Trinity Lutheran School in 1964. Eighty-three students in grades K-4 began the year. One grade was added each year until 1970 when the first 8th grade class graduated with nine students. Our school today serves Preschool through 8th grades. In May 2017, the Voter’s Assembly of Peace Lutheran Church held a voter’s meeting in which all scenarios were discussed and the majority voted to cease operation with the conclusion of this school year in June 2017. This is not the end for us, but a new beginning. Our future life as a Body of Christ, goals and ministry together will begin to assemble with the leadership of our interim Pastor. The revision of our mission, focus of our ministry, our vision and how to meet and establish these goals will be completed. God bless you all and may He continue to bless the ministry of Peace Lutheran Church.
What We Believe
We believe in and worship one God, the Holy Trinity – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. The Triune God has made us, and all things.
We believe that Jesus Christ, true God and true man, has redeemed us from sin and death, and has reconciled us to God by His life, death, and resurrection.
We believe that the Holy Spirit is active in our congregation today, using God’s Word and the sacraments to transform our lives and make us parts of Christ’s body, the Church.
We believe that the Triune God has revealed Himself and His great love for us in the Holy Scriptures, the Bible. The Bible is God’s Word, and therefore, is our only source for teaching and living.

Once a week (weather permitting), we take a walk in our surrounding neighborhoods and ask our neighbors if Peace can offer them help in any way or if they have any prayer requests we can bring to the Lord on their behalf. We also offer information for them to read about our church.
