GRACE LUTHERAN FOUNDATION ANNUAL MEETING, APRIL 26

Foundation Meeting and light lunch will follow Sunday’s worship service.

 


SYTTENDE MAI, 8:30 a.m. - 11 a.m., MAY 16

Syttende Mai, also known as Norwegian Constitution Day, will be celebrated on Saturday, May 16th at Grace.


This year we are trying something completely different and exciting. A “Frokost” or authentic Norwegian buffet breakfast will feature the exact Syttende Mai menu served at the Bondeheimen Hotel in Oslo, Norway. Serving begins at 8:30 a.m. and ends at 11 a.m., come any time during those hours. There will be live music during the breakfast and interesting Scandinavian cultural displays to explore. 

 

Tickets are available at any Gordy’s Country Market in Eau Claire, Adults only $10, Youth (16 and under) $3. Questions call 715 874-6678 or email djarvar@wwt.net

 

Don't miss out on an eventful morning of wonderful Scandinavian food, festivities and an opportunity to wear your Norwegian attire. Seating is limited--so get your tickets early!

 

 

SUMMER WORSHIP TIME – 9:30 a.m., MAY 24

Starting on Memorial Day Sunday (May 24) through Labor Day Sunday (Sept 6), worship will be at 9:30am.

 

Think about when we should have worship times after summer. (Should we continue at 9:30, return to 10:30, keep the same time all year--9:30, 10:00, 10:30?) Comments will be welcomed by Worship and Music board members or Pastor Dean.

 

 

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!

 

 

TAKE ME OUT TO THE BALLGAME, 3:00 p.m. JUNE 7

Congregational Picnic, 3:00 p.m at Carson Park followed by Express baseball game at 5:05pm (Faith Night) Amazing Grace Choir will sing the Star Spangled Banner to start the game. Cost: potluck item and $6 ticket for the game. We have a reserved section of the stands for Grace Lutheran and we also have a pavilion reserved for the picnic.


A table will be set up in the Narthex for you to purchase tickets on Sundays May 3rd,10th and 17th.

 

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!
