About Us


Peoples Church is a multicultural and an indigenous ministry of the ELCA (Evangelical Lutheran Church in America). We live out our faith by showing Creator God’s love for all people by offering shelter, hot meals, and community.


We strive to provide a sanctuary for prayerful worship within a respectful and welcoming environment and to meet the spiritual needs of our parishioners and community using Christian values while respecting the ‘One God with Many Names.’ After 25 years of seeing who shows up to worship with us, it is clear we are largely an indigenous church. We celebrate Cross and Feather and are very sensitive to justice issues for Native Peoples.

Peoples Church exists to help serve not only the spiritual needs but basic living needs of many who would go without. Shelter and food–that’s where healing begins.
