Our worship services plus Bible Studies on Sunday and Wednesday mornings (see calendar for times), offer opportunities for spiritual growth and are open to all.
Peace is an active member of the community. We maintain a booth at Dunnellon's 1st Saturday events, distributing English and Spanish New Testaments, devotional books, and other materials. We make our building available to community organizations such as Weight Watchers, Al-Anon, AA and others.
Our annual Shrove Tuesday Potato Pancake Supper has been a popular community event for 25 years. The whole Peace congregation enjoys serving our guests. In recent years we have added a Spaghetti Supper in May, and a Sauerkraut & Sausage Supper at the end of September. These events are also favorites of the community.
We actively support Food-4-Kids by packing and distributing back packs for children who would otherwise have no food over the weekend. We donate school supplies to the Romeo School, providing basic tools of learning to students who cannot purchase their own paper, pencils or notebooks. We support Toys For Tots and each Christmas season we fill and re-fill several bins. The mission efforts of the Florida-Georgia District of the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod are supported monetarily.
Our Pastor, Rev. Terry L. McKee, with his wife, Cindy, and his sons, Jeremy and Samuel, came to us in 2004. They had lived in Brooksville, where Pastor Terry was Youth Pastor at Christ Lutheran Church.
Peace Lutheran was established over 50 years ago as Rainbow Lakes Lutheran Church. The church was moved to its present location in 1988, to better serve the Dunnellon area. The new building was constructed by Laborers for Christ with the help of members of Peace.
Visitors to Peace are "welcome guests" on the first occasion they are with us, and are regarded as "part of the family" on subsequent occasions. They will experience heartfelt warmth in the greetings received from members of Peace.
All are welcome at Peace, "The Church on the Hill."
