Day One


Grace is a congregation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA).
Grace's 25-acre campus is handicapped accessible. We invite you to worship with us this weekend!


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 are joined by 4.9 million other Lutherans in proclaiming Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior. To learn more about what Lutherans believe, visit the ELCA Welcome Center or Grace's New Member Orientation information.
