Friedens Lutheran Church is one of the oldest Lutheran churches in North Carolina (established in 1745) but we pride ourselves as being progressive and adaptive to the world around us.   Though we're among the oldest, the many ministries of Friedens Lutheran Church are designed to meet today's spiritual needs. A part of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America, we strongly believe that with our hands we are doing God's work of restoring and reconciling communities in Jesus' name throughout the world.

Friedens would like to thank every volunteer in our church family for your participation in 2017. Whether you have volunteered on Sundays assisting with the service via communion, lector, video, audio, projection, altar guild, in the kitchen, servicing the nursery, teaching Sunday School, ushering and greeting, organizing and participating in various committees, helping our children with the music ministry, helping to take photos for our social media, maintaining our website, maintaining our property, or lending a helping hand to those in need, we couldn’t make the difference in the community without each and every one of you participating. We are grateful to each of you. God is giving each of you wings to fly and we are truly blessed that you use those skills to help Friedens soar into the future. Thank you all for your contributions. Let’s make 2018 a year that Friedens gains more volunteers in love and in flight. Blessings to all for a wonderful New Year!
