SUMMER WORSHIP TIME – 10:00 a.m., MAY 24

Starting on Memorial Day Sunday (May 24) through Labor Day Sunday (Sept 6), worship will be at 10:00 am.

 

These past two weeks you were invited to complete a survey indicating your preference for time of Sunday Worship service. 87 surveys were returned as follows:

  • 7  preferred service at 9:30am in the summer and 10:30 am in the winter,
  • 17 preferred 10:30am service year around,
  • 57 preferred 10:00am service year around,
  • 2 surveys were unsigned.
  • 4 surveys indicated other preferences

At a special meeting on Monday, May 19th, the church council voted unanimously to approve scheduling Sunday Worship at 10:00am based on your overwhelming preference for that time.

Beginning Sunday, May, 24 please join members at Grace Lutheran for fellowship from 9:00am to 10:00am and worship at 10:00am.  Watch for announcements on future community meetings and special classes to be held after worship at 11:00am.

 

 

WALKING TOGETHER, MAY 30

Perhaps you have attended Walking Together, the annual springtime event aimed at helping congregational leaders learn, share and grow. The feedback we receive from this day of resource sharing tells us that it’s worth doing again and again--and again!


This year’s event (the sixth annual) will be held Saturday, May 30 at UW-Eau Claire and it promises to be one of the best ever. With over 40 different workshops to choose from, you will have lots of opportunities to hear the latest thinking on change, generosity, youth and young adults, healthy congregations, Islam, spiritual gifts and more.


So get a group together--it only costs $15/person and that includes lunch. To encourage youth to attend, anyone under the age of 18, will be admitted free. You’ll be glad you did!

Welcome to Grace

From our Pastor…

Greetings in Jesus’ name, and know that you’re welcome here in the new Grace Lutheran Church. That’s right – “new” for at least two reasons: 1. we believe God is always “making all things new” including the church and, 2. we’re back in our building after a period of exile and we’re overflowing with openness and a zest for what’s next. 2015 is like the craziest and best time ever to be the church. So much is happening in biblical studies and spirituality these days our heads are happily spinning with ideas and possibilities for ministry. Old things are taking on a new look!

We are always asking what new thing God is doing, convinced that it is always gracious.

Our worship has ancient roots though we employ contemporary forms of art and music.

We believe Christian worship and community should be joyful – something like the “highlight of each week” for all people of all ages.

We believe in treating all people with respect, wherever they are in their faith journey. 

We work to “speak the truth in love” as we perceive it in Jesus, even as we trust God to lead each person along their own unique way.

Of course there is much more. If you believe, as we do, that faith should lead to sinlessness rather than to mindlessness, you could make a wonderful contribution to the kingdom of God here at Grace Lutheran. We’d love to meet you!

Dean W. Simpson, pastor

Thanks for visiting the Grace Lutheran Church website.


If you are searching for a progressive understanding of scripture,

If you are enriched by hearing God’s Word through great music,

If you believe in the separation of “church and hate”,

If you think GRACE is more than a little prayer before a meal,

...WE THINK ALIKE!


We invite you to join us for Sunday worship or to stop in any time for a chat over a cup of coffee.

At Grace, ALL ARE WELCOME and the coffee pot is always on!
