At long last, after years of prayer and searching, we found a home building for our church in spring 2010!
Our new building, located at 4339 Hunt Place in Washington DC’s 7th Ward, is a thrilling answer to prayer.
We envisioned it as a place of worship and a gathering point for the neighborhood that will allow us to expand our outreach ministries. After almost 3 years on site, we’ve seen God use the building – as well as us – in some really beautiful, and unexpected, ways.
We invite you to partner with us in the ministry God has called us to. We moved in on a rent-to-own basis, and our biggest financial need is money towards a down payment on the purchase of the building.
Inspired by the church garden planted by our youth in spring of 2010, we named it the SEED campaign.
In a community with incredible assets – rich history, vibrant culture and committed neighbors – as well as very real challenges – nearly a third of adults lack high school degrees, 3 in 8 children live in poverty and 2/3 of families are headed by single women – We are seeking to “plant seeds of peace and reap a harvest of righteousness” (James 3:18) through:
Through our ministries we aim to support one person or family at a time. One example is Janelle, who began attending Peace with her family as a middle schooler. She participated faithfully in Teen Bible Study and was mentored by two women in the church, eventually electing to become a member and be baptized. This year, we were proud to send her off to college, where she has earned high marks and found both a Bible study and church home.
Our new building will allow us to reach more people like Janelle in new and exciting ways.
