About Us

Throughout our community, we at Prince of Peace Lutheran Church, Pleasant Hills, are known as the church with the “Big Heart” - the church where all are welcome.


Like the tapestry of a quilt, we are woven together. We have different talents and interests. We laugh and cry together. We celebrate and mourn together. We break bread together. We share our talents with the church and the community.


We are a family with members from all ages, incomes, and walks of life. We are married, divorced, single, and widowed. We welcome all races (Black, Indigenous, People of Color), nationalities, sexual orientations, and gender identities (LGBTQIA+). Most importantly, we pray together, we walk in faith together, and we worship together.

Come as you are, for each unique body makes our quilt more vibrant. We will cover you in Christ’s threads of love. There is always room at our table.

We belong to the Southwestern PA Synod

of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA).

We are a Reconciling in Christ (RIC) congregation.

We joined Pittsburgh Lutheran United Ministries (PLUM) in January 2024.
