Grace Lutheran Church welcomes you to worship this morning.
Please fill out a visitor card, found in your welcome bag or
available from an usher, and place it in the offering plate. If you
have questions or are interested in hearing about membership,
please see Pastor Ryman or contact him using the information on
the front of this bulletin.
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 at the Lord’s Table. Please let the pastor
know you wish to receive this gift of life by holding your open
hands toward the cup. We encourage you to bring forward young
children for a blessing. The sign for a blessing is folded hands.
