Our mission is simple and grand all at the same time: "Love God by Loving Others." As Christ-followers, we believe that the best way we can fully express our love to God is by loving others. We do this by breaking bread with one another, by praying for each other, by studying Scripture together, and by welcoming others into the Peace Tree family.
We believe that all people are created in the Image of God. By respecting others and seeing others through God's eyes, we acknowledge that all people are made by the Creator of the universe. We're called to love others with our presence, by extending hospitality, by sharing our resources, and by loving others the way God loves us. Ultimately, we know that God is Love.

During the months of April, May, and June, every check-in and review at Peace Tree will provide one hour of education to illiterate adults living in Senegal. We’re working with Causely and buildOn to make it happen.
You can add #EducationForAll to your post when you check in to promote the cause. For more info about this quarter’s non-profit, check out www.buildon.org.www.buildon.org
FIRST QUARTER UPDATE: Last quarter, thanks to your Facebook check-ins, Causely's nationwide network of churches provided hundreds of shoes to people in need through Soles4Souls. Visit us this Sunday and be sure to check in!
Volunteer with BRO, SIS & UMW
Learn more about our newest volunteer groups by visiting the pages for BRO, SIS, and UMW. Brothers Reaching Out, Sisters In Service, and United Methodist Women offer opportunities for men and women to serve others in the community while growing closer to members of the Peace Tree family. It's a great way to meet new friends while helping those in need.
So far, these groups have partnered with My Town Miracles, the Manna House, Page Robbins Adult Day Center, and the Dorothy Day House of Memphis. This page features a picture from a recent gathering. Ladies from SIS filled purses with feminine & hygiene products to be distributed to women experiencing homelessness. Contact us today for more information.
Guatemalan Consulate Visit
Peace Tree partnered once again with Iglesia Metodista Unida "El Redentor" to host the Guatemalan Consulate for a two-day visit to the Memphis area April 2-3, 2022. The consulate assists our neighbors with forms and other documentation that will ensure these persons have up-to-date passports, official government identification cards, marriage licenses, and birth certificates.
For the first time ever, Peace Tree was the host site of the most recent mobile consulate. Click HERE to see pictures from the past consulate visits. Contact us today to learn how you and your friends can volunteer at future events. Learn more about the consulate visit by reading our November 2016 blog post.
