You are welcome here!

Everyone is welcome at Peace UCC. The invitation is open to you, and to anyone you invite to come with you. You see, the core of what we believe is found in John 3:16—For God so loved the world that He gave His only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him may not perish but may have eternal life. This is God’s house, and Christ’s table, where everyone is loved, and everyone may have eternal life. We welcome everyone. Please join us this week and celebrate the all-inclusive love of God in Christ Jesus. We hope you will make Peace Church your church home.

Why join a Church?
There are many reasons to join a Church. Here’s what you can expect at Peace UCC: You can find here a community of people who have good values. You can have a sense of belonging, make a connection with a community of faith where we are supportive in difficult times, comforting in times of grief, celebrating with you in times of joy, praying for you and caring for you in times of sickness, listening to you when you just need to talk. Of course, Church is both a place, and a group of people who share their faith in Jesus Christ. We come together just as we are, sometimes confident, sometimes expressing doubts, seeking Jesus and showing grace and forgiveness to one another. We sing together, pray together, laugh and celebrate together, grieve together, encourage one another together. Come and experience Church at Peace United Church of Christ. We welcome you. No matter where you are in life’s journey, you are welcome here. Peace Church.

Here’s where to find us for worship:


The Elkader Community

Elkader is an active town of about 1250 people, located in a beautiful valley along the Turkey River, in what is known as the “driftless area” of Clayton County. The region was not scoured by glaciers during the last ice age and remained rugged while the surrounding area was scraped level. Elkader is the hub of a large trade area which includes one of the most prosperous and diversified farming sectors in the Midwest. It is near the center of 470,000 Clayton County farm acres. 

Elkader is the County Seat, has excellent educational and recreational facilities, a highly regarded hospital, and is home to the main office of the Keystone Area Education Agency. Three state highways, Iowa 13, 56, and 128 enter the city from the north, east, south, and west. Two county paved highways connect Elkader with surrounding county communities. Elkader was awarded The Great American National Main Street Award in 2001 and the Spirit of Main Street Award in 2004.

The city is named after Algerian leader Abd al-Qadir al-Jaza'iri. When the community was platted in 1846, the founders, Timothy Davis, John Thompson, and Chester Sage decided to name it for the young Algerian who was leading his people in resisting the French, fighting for the freedom of his people.
