Bulletin October 24

WORSHIP AT THE CROSS will be offered at Grace, the second Monday of each month, starting October 11th  (6:30 pm).  This simplified service follows a format appropriate for people with a cognitive disability, dementia or young children who would benefit from a shorter, participatory worship opportunity. Pictures and symbols lead participants through the parts of the service.

Part of the Jesus Cares Ministries, Worship at the Cross allows us to bring the Gospel to the community, members, and families through this fun and unique program designed to inspire and encourage.


We, the members of Grace Evangelical Lutheran Church, affirm our continuing mission to work at bringing all people to the knowledge of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  To gather in joyful worship of God, to be witnesses to the truth of God’s salvation among ourselves that we may encourage each other to grow in faith and to witness to the hope of eternal life that is within us to our community and to the world.

Sunday Mornings between services starting Sep 19: “Sunday Conversations”. We will look at single Bible accounts that we can discuss and apply. In fact, on most occasions the children in our Sunday School will be studying the same lesson. This can be a natural chance for the adults and children to “speak about them when you sit in your house and when you walk on the road.”  Deuteronomy 6:7
Midweek Bible Study Series “Families of the Bible” starting Tue, Sep 28, 6:30pm & Wed, Sep 29, 1:30pm. We will do 3 weeks of this study through Oct 12/13.

Then we have a 4 week Reformation Series
In 1521, Martin Luther took his famous stand on scripture before the Emperor of the Holy Roman Empire at the diet of Worms.
2021 is the 500th anniversary of this important Christian event.
For four weeks at Grace, we will discuss the effect Luther's stand on scripture has had on Christianity and on our Lutheran church.

On Nov 16/17, we go back to the Family series through mid December. This Families Bible series explores familiar Biblical family relationships—from Adam and Eve to Mary and her son Jesus—and the challenges those families faced. Each lesson examines Scriptural truths from a biblical family circumstance and applies them to modern family life. Each lesson stands by itself, so you won’t feel you missed something if you can’t meet each week. These 8 lessons comes with six devotional readings, one for each day of the week until the group meets again. 
Teen Bible Class: Sundays between services - led by Pastor. Topics vary.
