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.

SABBATICAL SEND-OFF FOR PASTOR KEN— All Grace families are invited for a “Grace Family Reunion” picnic Sunday, June 28th to wish Pastor Ken well on his
sabbatical. BBQ King will cater a luncheon to celebrate family and kick-start Pastor Ken’s journey. Lemonade, water, place settings, coleslaw, and delicious pulled pork
sandwiches will be provided for each family. The picnic will begin shortly before noon or as soon as the second service ends near the outdoor sanctuary. Following this luncheon, there will be a short
program to wish Pastor Ken well on his spiritual journey that will take him initially to Germany. The presence of congregation will be a perfect way to show him the love he has from all of us--his Grace family. If you have any questions, please reach Corey Tafoya at coreytafoya@gmail.com.
