COME PRAY WITH US—The Spirituality Team invites you to come pray during the Prayer Vigil, on Good Friday, April 3, from 8 AM - 8 PM in the parlor. Sign-up sheet is on the Activity Board. We are hoping to fill at least all of the time slots. Purple prayer request cards are available at the Information Center, where they will also be collected. These requests will be prayed for during the vigil. What a wonderful way to end our Lenten season. Consider spending some time in prayer at Grace during the Prayer Vigil.

 

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.
