About Us

Peace Lutheran Church was established in 1955. Located in the heart of the city of Decatur, Georgia, among a dynamic and diverse community, we are a member of the Lutheran Church – Missouri Synod. As we continue to stand firm on the beliefs that we confess, and the promise of eternal salvation through Christ our Lord and Redeemer, we will continue to deliver His Gospel of Truth each Sunday, and celebrate our Lord’s Supper on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of each month. Join us on Sunday mornings as we conduct Bible studies for both children and adults. We ask that you also join us on Wednesday mornings as we intercede in prayer for the healing of mind, body, and soul for all people.
