Our Story

It all started when…

Divine Peace was started as a mission congregation of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod (WELS) in 1957. At that time our neighborhood was a new and growing community on the outskirts of Milwaukee. Instead of block upon block of homes, our area was filled with large undeveloped fields and few streets.

We give thanks that over the decades God has used our ministry to share the message of Jesus, the assurance of the forgiveness, joy and peace that he has won for everyone. We continue the legacy our spiritual parents passed on to us.

We strive to reach out to our community with the good news about Jesus. We are also committed to equip those who trust Jesus to grow in faith, to connect in loving relationships with each other and to serve their Savior in their homes, church, and community.

Here’s our invitation to you: Become a part of our church family!
