Missions are the heart of Peace Church. Through our faith we are commissioned to care for God’s people. We are committed to serving the community surrounding us with our donations and our time. Our concerns reach worldwide through our missionaries and the Presbyterian Disaster Association.
In January, We collected many mittens, hats and gloves from our mitten tree, all items were given to STEP (St. Louis Park Emergency Program. We also collected diapers that were donated for People Serving People, in addition we also received $131.00 to purchase more diapers.
In February, we had our Soup Bowl Sunday and collected many cans of soup for the STEP food shelf, plus $72.00 donation for the food shelf.

Meals on Wheels/Dinner at Your Door: Meals on Wheels is a community-based service that provides fresh, nutritious meals delivered directly to the homes of seniors and individuals with disabilities throughout the Twin Cities. In addition to regularly providing healthy foods, caring volunteers provide social connection that helps meal recipients remain living independently in their own homes.
St. Stephens: Our mission at St. Stephen’s Human Services is Ending Homelessness.
Our goal is to support individuals and families experiencing homelessness in achieving permanent, affordable housing. We progress toward this goal through street outreach, shelter, and housing programs. We meet people where they are and work together toward self-sufficiency and housing stability. We envision a community in which housing instability is rare, brief and non-recurring, ending homelessness as we know it.
