Peace Lutheran Church and Congregation Or Atid work together as host site for Family Promise Metrowest. The two communities, one Christian and one Jewish, share the tasks of welcoming homeless families into a temporary home. The Islamic Center of Boston, First Presbyterian Church and Memorial Congregational Church in Sudbury are support congregations.
Family Promise Coordinators are Kim Canning and Kim Ho.
Members of Peace Lutheran Church worship and learn together, celebrate with one another, support one another, and look for ways to be of service in the world.
Peace community arts offers space for activities related to the care of children, to music and the arts, and to reverence for the world around us.
