Prince of Peace held its first service with a congregation of 101 in the Wilson Professional Building at 4111 Hubbell Avenue in September 1960. Our church became a congregation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church (ELC) in December 1960, and our church constitution was adopted about that same time. The first wedding at Prince of Peace was in February 1961.
In May of 1961, our church moved to Park Fair Shopping Center at 100 E. Euclid Avenue. Our church then found a permanent location (its current location) at East 25th and Euclid Avenue. The first services in our current structure were held in October 1961. The current sanctuary was finished in October 1977.
Our church began offering contemporary music services in 1983, a tradition that continues through the present. In 1987, the ELC reorganized and became the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, also known as the ELCA.
The HyVee store across the street was built in 1989, and is located on land that was once church property.
Our current mission statement was adopted in 1992.
In 2010 our church celebrated its 50th anniversary, and today we continue to foster and affirm the spirit of our mission for God's Kingdom.
