Peace United Church of Christ is a small yet boldly compassionate congregation that has met in the same native stone building since 1881 at the corner of 4th & Grand in historic Alma, Kansas.
We have a long history of mission and service in our local community and across the globe. Our Tuesday afternoon after-school program draws students from around town whether they attend the church or not. Our worship service, held each Sunday at 9:30am, strives for a balance between reverence and informality.
Although the congregation itself is not large, it reflects and welcomes a wide diversity of thought. Our backgrounds, stories, and opinions are all unique, yet we share in the essentials of faith in our worship and study of the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
Peace Church is a proud member of the United Church of Christ. With over 5,000 churches and nearly one million members, the UCC serves God in the co-creation of a just and sustainable world. A church of extravagant welcome, we strive to be a place where “they may all be one.” (John 17:21)
The UCC has been on the forefront of social change, being the first historically white denomination to ordain an African-American, the first to ordain a woman, and the first to ordain an openly gay man. The UCC has a strong history within both the anti-slavery movement and the Civil Rights movement. And in working with over 200 mission partners, the UCC labors ceaselessly to fight injustice wherever it is found.
If you are searching for a new church home, rediscovering your faith, wrestling with questions, or if you just need a space where you’ll feel welcome and included no matter what, we invite you to visit Peace UCC. No matter where you are on life’s journey, you are welcome here!
