Church of Peace, formed in 1870 by German immigrants, is a historic downtown church that has sustained people of faith in Fond du Lac for nearly one hundred-and-fifty years. Our sanctuary is large and stately, providing an inspiring atmosphere for worship, complete with exquisite stained-glass and featuring the Christ window. Church of Peace is also fully alive in the present and our congregational life is varied and engaging. In addition to the traditional voices of classical organ and acoustic piano, many hymns and other music use the sounds of guitar, bass, and keyboards. People are welcomed to worship together as a family of faith, whether dressed in their “Sunday best” or a clean pair of jeans and a sweater or polo shirt, long-time members and guests or newcomers and seekers.
