Continuum of Care Wood County is hosting its third annual Project Connect on Oct. 14! This event provides immediate goods and services to Wood County residents who are experiencing homelessness or are at risk of losing resosurces needed to secure and maintain housing.

Project Connect is slated for 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 14, at St. Mark's Lutheran Church, 315 S. College Ave., Bowling Green. More than 300 volunteers will be needed for a successful event. To register as a volunteer, visit the SignUpGenius page online.

Along with providing basic needs and critical services to individuals and families, an additional positive outcome for service providers is the opportunity to network with different agency members and reinforce relationships, collaborations, and partnerships.

Donated clothing and personal care products needed, which can be dropped off at Peace Church, include:

  • winter coats, boots, hats, mittens, and scarves
  • shampoo, combs, and hairbrushes
  • toothbrushes and toothpaste (for adults and children)
  • deodorant, soap, razors, and feminine care products

More information is available on Facebook, by email at, or calling the 2-1-1 info line.

Our Mission ... Creating Christ-Connected Community

Who's welcome here ... Everyone

Blessing the ground

Peace is an inclusive community open to all regardless of ability, age, church experience, race, creed, gender, cultural background, political bias or sexual orientation. One's presence is all that is needed to participate in the life of Peace.

Who are we ... A Water Family

In the freeing, living waters of baptism, we are joined to Christ and to one another as brothers and sisters called to be servants of God's grace in the world.

The community life of Peace is grounded in worship and dedicated to being active in mission, celebrating, learning, and sharing the love of God in Christ Jesus. Peace is a growing and generous congregation that offers a sense of belonging and friendship filled with a great spirit of cooperation and support.

Established in 1969, Peace is an active member of the Northwestern Ohio Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA).

Where are we ... Bowling Green, Ohio

Peace Church is located at 1021 West Wooster Street, near the corner of West Wooster and Martindale, with our south entrance and additional parking at the corner of Pearl and Martindale. Peace is just west of Wood County hospital and next door to the fire station (click here for a map).

Worship ...

Worship at Peace is casual and uplifting. It celebrates God's love for all and it builds one another up for Christ's sake in the world.

Holy Communion, where bread is broken, wine is poured and the Lord's meal is shared, is celebrated each week at each service. It is open to all. There are no requirements, restrictions or judgement on whether you participate or not!

Everyone is welcome at worship, from the youngest and most energetic to the more slow and steady in pace!

For those who choose, a nursery for the wee ones is available but is not staffed. You are welcome to play in there with your children during worship if needed.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact me (419-352-0241 or You are welcome here!
