Grace Lutheran Church

This Sunday we are celebrating the 489th anniversary of the Reformation – a good time to ask, “Why Not Be Non-Denominational?” – since many people suspect that denominations are no longer useful. The pastor and people of Grace Lutheran Church welcome you to experience the love of God in your life.

Grace Lutheran offers many opportunities to worship, fellowship and study God’s Word. Worship begins at 9 every Sunday morning with Bible Study and Sunday School at 10:30 a.m. Mid-week Bible Study on Wednesdays at 9 a.m. and Thursday at 7 p.m.

If you do not have a church home, you are invited to come and join us in worship and fellowship.
