Our History

An Online Church with Ties to Wisconsin

Modern American Spiritualism was started in Hydesville, New York in 1848.  Two very young and brave sisters gave a message from a spirit and thus a movement was started. 

Modern Spiritualism is the Science, Philosophy, and Religion of continuous life, based upon the demonstrated fact of communication, by means of mediumship, with those who live in the Spirit World.   (1919)

Church of Peace, A Spiritualist Center was first chartered in May of 2019 in Hales Corner, Wisconsin by the Reverend Debra Malison.  The church went inactive in 2020.  In 2021, Charvonne Carlson reinstated the Charter and started Church of Peace as an official ONLINE church based in  West Allis, Wisconsin.
