When to Arrive
If it's your first visit to Grace Lutheran, it's best to arrive about 10 minutes early. There's plenty of parking at the church.
What to Wear
We dress nicely but casually.
What to Expect
You may sit anywhere in the sanctuary where a seat is open. Each worship service lasts for approximately one hour. The service is printed in a worship folder you'll receive as you walk in. It's also displayed on screens at the front of the sanctuary. The service begins with a brief welcome, music, a prayer, and readings from the Bible. It continues with a message from the Bible designed to help us understand God, who we are, and the world in which we live. Communion is celebrated on the first, third, and fifth Sundays of the month.
What About My Kids?
At Grace, families are encouraged to worship together for the entire service. If needed, a cry room is available. There are age-appropriate activity bags near the front door. We also have children's activity pages available from an usher. On second and fourth Sundays, children are invited to the front of the sanctuary for a brief children's message right before the sermon. A Sunday School meets each Sunday at 9 a.m.
What About Communion?
The Bible teaches that in the Lord's Supper we receive Jesus' true body and blood (in a miraculous way), together with bread and wine, for the forgiveness of our sins and the strengthening of our faith. We desire that those who receive this sacrament understand what they're receiving and why they need it. If you're new to Grace, please speak with Pastor Wehling before receiving the Lord's Supper.
Is it Just Sundays?
Absolutely not! We desire to live out our faith everyday. On Wednesdays during the school year we have a midweek program that includes supper, Prayer and Praise worship, and Bible classes for children and youth. Each summer, we host a week-long Vacation Bible School. Other Bible studies and activities will be listed in the bulletin.
