As a community, we strive to be warm and welcoming to all who enter our doors. Whether you are seeking a supportive ear in times of sorrow or looking for companions to share in your joys, you will find it here. We offer fellowship, worship, and connection with others who seek to grow in their faith.

If you are seeking connection in a church community, Dove of Peace has some of the best parts of a family. We are a collection of people who have differing viewpoints, but are warm and friendly with each other, members of an authentic community.


In our worship services, we enjoy the flood of sunshine that  bathes the altar, reminding us that God loves being with  each of us as we are. We want you to feel comfortable with  us as you are—flipflops, a coat and tie, tattoos, matching  earrings and handbag. You, as you are. 

“I’m tired of pretending to be perfectly okay. I’m not. Does church ever really mean that I can be myself?”

“I’m feeling vulnerable and needy. But I don’t want to stand up and introduce myself to a room full of strangers!”

Here you can share what is in your heart, or simply be present in silence. You may be comforted by the atmosphere of thoughtful compassion in our worship services. In times of loss or sorrow, our congregation’s resources are here for you; you can ask for prayers and know that your concerns are lifted up by caring hearts. Visit our Memorial Garden and feel its peace.


Maybe your life needs some connections that aren’t based  on “you scratch my back/I’ll scratch yours.” Here at Dove,  we share sorrows and joys, in events like our Mardi Gras  Mass, or in our springtime Jazz Under the Stars. We have fellowship lunches once a  month, and of course we have coffee and conversations in our courtyard  after worship. There’s a sweetness in those times that doesn’t just come  from homemade cookies.  

We don’t even think about perfection. We’re here for each other, and you can have a part of what we share.

We invite you to explore the beauty, connection, shelter, purpose, and thought that are at the heart of Dove of Peace Lutheran Church. Whether you are seeking fellowship and worship, a safe and nurturing space, guidance and encouragement on your journey of faith, or opportunities for thoughtful contemplation and discussion, you will find them here. Come and be a part of our loving and welcoming community.
