Our Mission Volunteer Opportunities You can make an impact! Contact the church office at 715-832-9713 to find out ways to serve our congregation, our community and our global neighbors. You can find Grace Lutheran Church within the community in many ways. Here are some ways, to name a few! God’s Work, Our Hands Each year on the same day Grace Lutheran Church members and volunteers gather to help the community in some way. It has become a day of tradition within our church and one that we look forward to each and every year. Grace Lutheran Foundation We make the largest impact on our community through Grace Lutheran Foundation which is a complementary arm of Grace Lutheran Church. Its mission is to respond to the spiritual, physical and social needs of people in order to enhance human dignity and growth by providing high quality Christian-based services. The Foundation operates numerous facilities and offers programs for seniors, children, and cognitively and/or developmentally disabled adults. Recently, the Chippewa Valley Free Clinic has relocated to the Syverson Nursing Home and we welcome the opportunity to support their important work. Grace also supports with time and treasure numerous community and global efforts in response to people in need. Recently, we have resolved to work on behalf of the planet and focus on environmental challenges.
