Sanctuary and Sacred Spaces
The Peace Sanctuary is a place of peace. Whether alone or surrounded by the company of friends, one feels the embrace of God’s presence. It is a safe home in which one can rest, pray and be. The abstract painting, simplicity of the elements and the light dancing through the space renew our strength and energy.
The flexibility of seats, platforms and altar encourage a variety of settings for worship and contributes to the Interfaith Community’s appreciation of Peace as a House of Prayer for All People.
Lord, you are present before me, behind me, and you hold me in the palm of your hand. Psalm 139

Our thanks to artist Richard Caemmerer
Richard Caemmerer has worked on designs and innovations for more than 400 churches, mosques and synagogues around the world. We thank him for his unique and creative design which encourages the vital connection of Spirit and life. (Peace has appeared in Faith and Form, The Interfaith Journal on Religion, Art and Architecture.)
As Richard has said, “The things (wood, copper, fabric, concrete) here do not pretend to be holy. They speak to the holy….as do the people in prayer and praise, contemplation and delight.”
Come, enjoy the energy and the embrace.
