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!


Preschool will be hosting their annual Open House on August 6th from 10:00 a.m. to noon. This is a great time to see the classrooms and meet some of the teachers and learn about all the wonderful things the preschool has to offer. Please share this information with families that have younger children so they may see all the good works we do here at Grace.


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.
