Who We Are
Grace Lutheran Church is Biblical, sacramental, liturgical, mission-oriented, traditional, community-minded, gracious, warm and inviting. We love noisy kids in worship and welcome folks who haven't been here--or anywhere-- in a while. We are not perfect people with all the answers, but we are a community of redeemed sinners gathered together by God and learning to live our name: "Grace." We worship in the Name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit and are busy following Jesus and inviting others to know Him, too.

New Pew Cushions: Fill the Ark
Our current pew cushions were purchased decades ago and they have served us faithfully. While we can’t upholster the pews, we CAN get all-new cushions! Council member Karen Pederson and council president Sam Kirk are spearheading this effort.
In the front pew by the piano are “sittable” samples of cushions with more/less padding and also some colors that Karen has chosen. Come and take a look!
We thought we’d have some fun with this. So, because the place where the pews sit is called the Nave (say “neighv”) and that’s the Latin word for ship (think “navy”), and because the Church is often described as a ship sailing toward Christ and is identified with Noah’s Ark, in which people were saved from death, we are going to have a FILL THE ARK drive for pew-cushion sponsorship.
In keeping with the theme, support levels are:
The Dove: $50 for one seat
Noah and his Wife: $100 for two seats
Noah's 3 Sons - Shem, Ham, and Japheth: $150 for 3 seats (half a pew)
The Ark: $300 for a full pew
Any amount of support would be appreciated. Checks can be made out to Grace Lutheran, with a note in the memo line. There will also be a “seating chart” in the narthex where you see the progress being made as the “ark” is filled in!
To make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.
