February 15 - 22, 2022

For Worship services please visit our YouTube channel.
Please fill out your Time & Talent Forms by TODAY!

Please use the T&T Form to let us know if you are continuing on in a ministry, in addition to your new things!

This year, we are challenging ourselves to try two new things to use our gifts. First, we’re going to try a new Grace ministry! Second, we’re going to try a new serving opportunity in the community (or, if we’re already doing service work in the community, we’re going to share the story of that work)! These new commitments can be short or long term – the main thing is trying something new.

You can share your intentions for your new endeavors, as well as your other intentions for ministry this year, by filling out the 2022 Time & Talent Form. On this form, you can let us know what you'd like to participate in, and we will get you connected!

If you'd like more information about many of the ministries at Grace, you can click HERE for our Description of Opportunities booklet. 

If you have any questions, please contact Pr. Rachel.
We look forward to using our gifts and doing ministry together in 2022!

We are sad to announce that the 2022 ELCA Youth Gathering has been cancelled. While we are disappointed, we are grateful to the ELCA leadership that made this decision prayerfully.

But this is not where it ends! The six Grace members who had planned to attend the Gathering are exploring different opportunities for connection with the larger church, service beyond our walls, and faith formation that points us to our Boundless God.

We invite you to be in prayer for our youth - Lou, Mary, and Cameron - as well as our adult leaders - Lori, Pr. Gregg, and Pr. Rachel - as they find a new way forward. We look forward to sharing with you how you can support them in the new path God provides!
