About Us

Prince of Peace Lutheran Church is a loving and caring Christian community working together to live and proclaim God’s word made known to us in Jesus. Prince of Peace welcomes people as they are and embraces all the dimensions of diversity in which God has made us: race, gender identity, sexual orientation, family structure, physical ability, and cultural and religious backgrounds, among others. We are all loved by God. We are devoted to growing spiritually, to valuing differences and to serving the neighbors and the creation God has given us. We invite you to visit us and to use our site to deepen and strengthen your connection to God and others!

We’ve been part of the greater Gaithersburg community since we began as a congregation in 1982.  In the years since, we’ve always been especially interested in vibrant worship and music, ministry with children and youth, and hands on ways to help neighbors in our community and throughout the world.

We are a member congregation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, and its Metropolitan Washington, DC Synod. We partner with many ecumenical and interfaith organizations in our local community including Gaithersburg HELP, Interfaith Works and Habitat for Humanity. We are one of the founding congregations of the annual Interfaith 5K in Montgomery County.

Whether you’re looking for a church home, or just visiting, we hope to be a blessing in your life and we invite you to partner with us in helping to be the presence of Jesus in the life of our community!
