God gave us the arts to lift us up!

Arts @ PEACE offers high-quality cultural events to western Nevada County. PEACE Lutheran Church enjoys a central location within the newly created Grass Valley-Nevada City Cultural District. In that context, we eagerly share our many blessings in music, cinema, art and other cultural gifts with our neighbors!

We offer most presentations by donation. For many events, you can enjoy a free reception afterward. That’s because we believe our neighbors need fellowship! People like lingering over wine, cheese and other snacks and beverages.

Donations welcome

We welcome donations of any amount! If you feel so moved, please do give as you can. Any gifts will benefit the PEACE Organ Fund. We are raising money to buy a new organ to replace the aging one you hear in our Sanctuary. (Imagine using a 30-year-old computer! That’s basically what we have now.)
