CLICK HERE FOR INFORMATION ABOUT OUR LENTEN SEASON IN 2019: FORGIVENESS

Worship at Grace

Worship brings together all who are seeking an experience of God’s love and grace. We ask and receive forgiveness; we hear God’s Word in word and song; we are blessed by the gift of Christ’s body and blood in the sacrament of Holy Communion; we are sent to bless the world! Come join us to be inspired and transformed!
 
We offer two unique worship services on Sunday mornings! Holy Communion is celebrated at each service every week. We welcome all who are worshiping with us to participate and simply ask that you realize Lutherans believe that Christ is here and by worshiping with Him, we receive forgiveness of our sins. Children are welcomed and encouraged to come forward, with their parents, to receive a blessing. If you are unable to come forward, please notify an usher and we will come to your pew to administer communion. We also have Gluten/Dairy free wafers. Please ask the Pastor for one, if you have these dietary restrictions.
 
Come check them out to see how your heart is touched and moved.
8:00 AM
Start your week with a traditional liturgy that brings the power and beauty of ritual to our lives today. Our chancel choir leads us in hymns that you might remember and love (and want to sing along to!). This warm and friendly service helps us to remember that we belong to God.
 
(Held in the main sanctuary at 6th Avenue & Main Street)
 
10:45 AM
Join us for an uplifting service of praising God led by the Spirit of Grace praise band. All children are invited to come forward for the children’s message and those between kindergarten and 2nd grade may visit Children’s Church during the sermon for fun, faith-based activities. This vibrant service celebrates the wonderfully engaging (and sometimes surprising!) work of the Holy Spirit!
 
(Held in the main sanctuary at 6th Avenue & Main Street)
 
Children’s Church is for Kindergarten through 2nd grade children during the 10:45 service and is run by volunteers who do stories, games, and crafts during the lessons and sermon time. Interested children go with the volunteer waiting in the Narthex after the children’s sermon, and return to their parents in the sanctuary just prior to Communion.
 
(Children in Kindergarten to second grade may meet the volunteer leader in the Narthex after the children’s sermon)
Children Are Welcome at all Services!
Grace welcomes kids of all ages at any of our services. If you prefer, Tot Spot is available during both the 8:00 and 10:45 services. Tot Spot is lovingly & skillfully supervised by Mrs. Ellen Jones for children ages 5 and under in room E08 of the Education Building.
 
(Held in room E08 of the Education Building during 8:00 and 10:45 worship for children 5 and under)
 
Communion 
The Sacrament of Holy Communion is celebrated during all services at Grace. We welcome all who are worshipping with us to participate and simply ask that you realize Lutherans believe that Christ is here and by worshipping with Him, we receive forgiveness of our sins. Children are welcomed and encouraged to come forward, with their parents, to receive a blessing. If you are unable to come forward, please notify an usher, and we will come to your pew to administer communion. Gluten/Dairy free wafers are available for those with these dietary restrictions.

A Note About Faith-Full Families 
Our 9:00 Faith-Full Families service ended in the fall of 2018. Most of our families with kids 5 and under are attending either the 8:00 or 10:45 service. Faith-Full Families ran for 13 years and was a great program to get kids engaged in worship at their level! We’re thankful that at our regular services, our congregation is welcoming to kids (and their inquisitive minds) of all ages, as we worship God together. Please note, as Faith-Full Families is removed, we will continue to be intentional, to work on ways to engage kids in both our services. See Kelsey or Pastor Krais if you have any  thoughts/ideas!
Monthly Healing Service Grace offers a monthly service of healing for those who desire a quiet, reflective space for healing, restoration, and community. Deacon Allison Wilcox leads this service, which takes place on the first Tuesday evening of each month at 7:00pm in the Sanctuary.
 
This worship service is open to those who are seeking comfort or even simply peaceful respite from a chaotic world.
 
2019 schedule: January 8, February 5, March 5, April 2, May 7, June 4, July 2, August 6, September 3, October 1, November 5, December 3. 
 
(Held in the main sanctuary at 6th Avenue & Main Street)
