  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; classes are available for both children and adults. The children’s class meets just off the lobby area and the adult class in the adjacent 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.
