WElcome!

We are so glad you are here. Peace Church is a community centered around Jesus—Being and becoming more like Jesus to help our neighbors know God. We’re growing in love, in courage, in community, and in vision. From younger to older, we believe God is building a beloved community here, and you are invited to be part of it.

Summer Mission Trip

Join us on a mission trip to Rochester, MN June 22-26th! We will be putting on a Vacation Bible School for the neighborhood kids, serving community meals, distributing food with Community Food Response and working with a local church. 

This is a trip that your student will not want to miss! There are the trips that bring our group closer together and to the heart of God! 

 

Summer Youth Group

Wednesdays 6-8pm.  We invite middle-school and high-school students to gather together, sharing a community meal before we head to the youth room and ask the hard questions about God, faith, and the world we live in. We emphasize the sharing of your own story as a means toward growth. We often play group games, discuss the joys and challenges of each of our individual lives, hold one another accountable, and build each other up.

What is The Open Door?
The Open Door provides food support for low-income individuals and families across Dakota County. Through their collective programs, The Open Door distributed more than 2.9 million pounds of food in 2021 – 65% of which was fresh and/or perishable.

Four programs make up The Open Door’s approach: 

  1. A fixed-site pantry in Eagan, providing appointments to clients seeking food assistance.
  2. The Mobile Pantry Program, Dakota County’s only traveling food distribution which brings food to 30 different low-income apartment complexes, senior living facilities, churches, community centers, and schools each month.
  3. The Mobile Lunchbox Program works with School District partners to deliver meals to students in low-income neighborhoods during the summer months. In 2021 volunteers deliver over 40,000 meals to 26 different neighborhoods across 4 school districts. 
  4.  The Garden to Table Program helps clients harvest their own food at 12 locations with more than 300 garden plots. Garden to Table provides seeds, starter plants, tools, and coaching to clients.

What to Expect

When you come to worship at Peace, you can expect a 60-minute experience including a time of worship and a biblical message, engaging Kids spaces, and a community of people ready to welcome you. We invite you to our fellowship time before and after the service where we serve local coffee and donuts, yum! During the school year, kids are dismissed after our opening worship songs for their own engaging activities.  During the summer months, we supply coloring books and crayons that relate to the story being shared.

WHY we love PEACE

Anderson
Heidi & Joe Anderson

When we first moved to Eagan, we were in need of a new home church. We visited nearly a dozen churches over the course of 6 months but kept finding our way back to Peace and now call it home. The messages resonate with us, the people are kind and welcoming and we appreciate the connection Peace has with the broader community to help those in need. We also like how involved the members are and the true desire from the leadership team to receive input from the congregation on how to constantly improve and make this church a place where people truly feel welcomed.

We were church shopping after moving to Eagan and when a neighbor said she thought we might like Peace Church, we went.  We were greeted warmly at the door, in the pew, at coffee and afterward.  Introductions were made and we were connected with children's ministries for our kids and adult ministries for ourselves.  We have not missed a week at Peace since that first Sunday nearly 30 years ago.

I chose Peace at a time when I was looking for a new church home.  I met a wonderful member of Peace at my exercise class and we chatted about an upcoming event that her small group was participating in. I joined them, they were my kind of Christians.  I attended church services and felt the same way about the other members I met.  I stay at Peace because of the Christian messages, friendships, and many outreach ways I can participate in.

Givens
Hans & Donna Givens

We were drawn to Peace Church initially by the leadership team, who sacrificially work to inspire and build a family of faith here.  In the ensuing years, we have been privileged to invest our lives in God's kingdom together with friends whose wide interests, remarkable talents, and loving care have supported and enriched us through both good and difficult times. We believe that vision is still very much alive at Peace Church.

I feel at home when I'm part of the Peace family. Because everyone has accepted me for the way I am regardless if I'm in a wheelchair and I have mental health. You can feel safe at Peace Church because nobody will judge you for how you look or what problems you may face.

Peace Church has and still is a place where we felt like we belonged. We were accepted by our Peace family as who we are. Peace had overlooked the color of our skin, hair and culture and they have embraced us with lots of love, acceptance, peace and with great patience!  We will forever be thankful!

I love Peace Church because its leadership is focused on God's vision, not theirs.  This group of people are very giving and helpful.  Always there when you need something! Wonderful musicians!  Very inspiring music every week!

Dave & Sue Wehling

We like that Peace is not so massive, when there are visitors we can recognize they are guests and welcome them.

Wendy W

Peace has been the focal point for every important event in my life such as:  Becoming a member of the church, high school graduation, college graduation, my wedding, the baptism of my children and is now part of my children's lives.

Deb Anderson

I grew up in this church.  It is a family that is centered in Christ reaching out to the community  giving unconditional love.

Patrick J
Patrick & Lilla Jamison

We were lead by God's calling to connect with other people of faith that were part of the church.  Those connections were deepened as we found ways to share our gifts in service to God, our community, and His church.

Truly a church that offers so many opportunities to all ages for growing in your faith, caring for others, having fun and "becoming more like Jesus"!

I truly feel that God led me to Peace after my husband died and I no longer wanted to drive the distance to my former church.  I did a web search for a local Bible believing church that had active women's groups and once I entered the lobby at Peace and was warmly welcomed, I knew I had found my new church. 

Marie L

I came to Peace Church in 1961.  I had never heard of the Reformed Church in America.  So I began reading about the RCA.  I felt included here and was always impressed with the people who embraced continued learning.  We never stop learning.  As I continue at Peace and pray that we can always come open minds, open hearts and open arms.

Johnson
Sara & Phillip Johnson

The people of Peace have been family when we're physically far from family.  We've learned from teachers here, watched our children get to know God here, and served and taught alongside friends here. The donuts and coffee have always been a win, too

Spicer

Our two, now adult sons, grew up in the youth program and are still very close friends with the children they met in that program. They have been involved with each others weddings as attendants, seen them have children, graduate from college, go through the Marine Corps, all starting as children in the Youth program together. That combined with the many missions Peace is involved with, and my 20+ years with the contemporary band have served as a strong tie to Peace.

Over the years Peace has remained steadfast in their Bible based sermons and teachings.   They have always offered many choices of Bible studies along with different men's and women's groups. I am involved in one of the circles, where besides a Bible study we can be involved in missions and serving others. That has been very rewarding and fun. I have met a lot of "forever friends" here at Peace church.

In the mid 1970's, a friend at work invited me to a Mother/Daughter Banquet at Peace Reformed Church.  I had never heard of a "Reformed" Church, but I went with her and had a very nice time.  Forty-five years later, I am still going to Peace and my entire family has enjoyed the leadership, the programs, the people, and the journey with me!

Lake
Harold & Sharon Lake

Over the years at Peace, we have come to appreciate the associations and friendships of many very good people. It has been a pleasure to come to church on Sunday and see/talk with people we had become familiar with over time. Some that have become our closest friends.  Certainly, social relationships are important but even more importantly, we have been blessed with the preaching and teaching of a long list of pastors, assistant pastors, and lay people, for that we are very grateful.

Friends from our former church switched to Peace and highly recommended the preaching.  Our oldest son was 14 and we also heard about the youth program. Our boys had great youth pastors here and loved it. We stayed here for the same reasons and also the fellowship and many friends.

Here is a picture of Glory Drive.  On the left is our main and largest parking lot, which has designated visitor parking spaces as well as handicapped spaces.  

Sunday Worship begins at 10am with Fellowship time (coffee and treats) before the service beginning at 9:15 and again after the service at 11am.  You are welcome to attend all!

We love having kids in worship! Peace Kids is our school age program that runs September through May, the kids are dismissed during the first part of the service.  For younger children, we have the nursery available on the north side of our building. 

We offer communion the first Sunday of each month, and you are welcome to partake.

Business casual is the best way to describe how the majority dresses at Peace.  There are also plenty of people more and less dressed up than that.  If you are comfortable, we are comfortable. 

Usually services begin a bit before 10am with some prelude music.  Then the congregation is invited to sing opening songs.  After that the Kids are dismissed, followed by announcements, and another song. The scripture is read, followed by a message.  Then we close with a song and a blessing.  Each service is about an hour.  

Nope. Though if you are comfortable, we would love to have you fill out our plan a visit form and/or our connect card.  That way we can make sure to answer any questions and follow up with you after.
