Our church

Peace is more than our congregation’s name.  Peace is God’s gift to us through our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  We’d love to share this peace with you!


Peace Evangelical Lutheran Church is located in Houghton, Michigan.  We serve Houghton and neighboring communities with our Gospel-centered, Bible-based ministry.  We also serve the Campus of Michigan Technological university through our Lutheran Collegian Campus Ministry.  “Lutheran Collegians” is a registered organization on the MTU Campus. Pastor Glenn Schwanke serves the congregation.

Peace Evangelical Lutheran Church is a member of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran synod.  The Wisconsin Synod (WELS) is a conservative Lutheran Church body with 1,239 congregations in North America and over 400,000 baptized members.  At any one time, the WELS supports up to 200 home missions as well as 76 missionaries and 22 teachers doing work in 35 languages in 24 countries on 5 continents.
