Getting to know each other
We know meeting someone for the first time can be intimidating, and going to a new church for the first time can be nerve-racking. We want to help make your first experience at Peace City Church a great one!
Peace City Church meets every Sunday at 5:00pm. Come a few minutes early to check-in your kids and grab some free coffee or tea.
In addition, every Sunday after service, we host a free Community Dinner (6:30p) for everyone to enjoy.

What can I expect?
How long is a Peace City CHURCH service?
In total, a Peace City Church service is 75 minutes in length.
What happens during the service?
Service begins with prayer, then the Peace City Church worship team leads the church in music - song lyrics are projected onto the screens so you can sing along and/or engage with worship however you feel most comfortable. After the music portion of service is complete, one of our pastors will come out to welcome everyone, share the vision of the church, and give a few next steps and announcements. A pastor will then share an encouraging and hope-filled message about Jesus from the Scriptures.
Who is welcome?
All are welcome! Looking for a church? Come. Not a Christian but curious about Jesus? Come. We are people from different backgrounds and cultures, who are young, old, wealthy, not-so-wealthy, short, and tall.
What's the culture like at Peace city Church?
Sunday's at Peace City are warm, casual, multicultural, and exciting. We have a family environment. Come as you are and expect to feel welcomed as family.
Multicultural? Jesus brings different people together into one family. With the gospel clearly central, we design our worship service to welcome, honor, and reflect different cultures and peoples. You will see diversity in our people, visuals, songs, and prayer styles.
English is the main language we use, but we at regularly mix Spanish, Swahili and/or French into our services as we have English Language Learners in our church. You will see translations of certain service elements on-screen, in the bulletin, or spoken aloud.
What about my kids?
We believe that kids should have a blast at church every single week - and at Peace Kids, we make this a priority. The other thing we make a priority is your children’s safety (fyi: we require background checks for every Peace Kids worker). Because of that, we have a detailed check-in process for our Peace Kids program the first time that you visit. You’ll want to leave yourself an extra ten minutes to get signed in for the Peace Kids experience. Our Peace Kids program includes a Nursery class (6mo-3 years old) and a Pre-K/Elementary class. Peace Kids is provided every Sunday except for the first Sunday of the month, when we have Family Worship.
