THANKSGIVING ALTAR DISPLAY – We are in need of pumpkins, squash, colorful gourds, apples, potatoes, Indian corn and corn stalks.  Please be sure that these items are cleaned of any dirt or mud before you bring them into the building.  All edible produce will be donated to the Food Pantry after November 26th.  Please  leave your donations in the entryway on the upper level the weekend of November 18/19.  Any questions contact kereinhard@yahoo.com.

Who We Are - At Grace Lutheran Church, we dedicate ourselves to Sharing God's Grace. Sharing God's Grace is more than a catchphrase for us--it is our mission, our way of life, our beginning and ending point. As members of the largest Lutheran denomination in North America--the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA)--We join 4.9 million other Lutherans of the ELCA in believing that we are saved by Grace alone on account of Christ Alone! To learn more about what Lutherans believe, visit the ELCA Welcome Center or Grace's New Member Orientation information.
