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.
