St. Nicholas Visits December 6th

 

December 6th is St. Nicholas Day! There will be a video premier that morning at 9:30--the good saint, who we sometimes know as Santa Claus, will be visiting Grace Lutheran to explain why we call him Santa, share some traditions from other lands, and also to tell a bit about his life as Bishop of the town of Myra (in modern-day Turkey). He will also tell children about how Santa Claus always points to Jesus. The video will premier on our YouTube channel. 

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.

Our Mission

 

To make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.

Sunday School Goes Home

Because of the out-of-control spread of Covid, and also local school districts' decisions to move to distance learning for all students, Grace will move its Sunday school to home-based learning. Packets and bags of activities and crafts, as well as devotion books, are available the week of November 22 to pick up in the bell tower. If you can't get yours, call Sam Kirk or Pastor Pari and we will make arrangements for them to be delivered to you. Occasional videos for Sunday School students will also be made.

Worship Online Only Nov. 29-December 18

Because of the widespread community transmission of Covid-19, including members of the parish, and because of the pleas of healthcare workers, the Minnesota Department of Health, and southwest Health and Human Services, the Grace Lutheran church council made the difficult decision to suspend in-person worship to help do our part to protect hospital capacity, and our neighbors. We will re-evaluate this after a couple weeks.
