 Welcome to our Visitors!

Grace Lutheran Church welcomes you as you join us in worship this morning. Please fill out a visitor card, either handed to you when you entered this morning or available from an usher and place it in the offering plate.

Sunday School

All are welcome to attend Sunday School before worship beginning at 8:45 am; classes are available for both children and adults. The children’s class meets in the chapel and the adult class in the adjoining gathering room.

Holy Communion  

Those who are baptized and believe that Jesus Christ, crucified and risen, is truly present in, with, and under the forms of bread and wine for the forgiveness of sins, life, and salvation, are welcome to the Lord’s Table. Please let the pastor know you wish to receive this gift of life by holding out your open hands. Receive the wafer, move to one of the servers and dip the wafer into the wine, then partake.  You are encouraged to bring young children forward for a blessing. The sign for a blessing is folded hands.
