We are planning to have a 65th Anniversary Dinner celebration on September 20th. We are specifically in need of two important volunteers: Chair of Silent Auction and Event Coordinator for the dinner (linens, dishes, catering, etc.)
If we do not have anyone step forward to volunteer for these two positions, and others to assist and begin to get the ball rolling, we will unfortunately have to cancel this event. If you would like to help, please let me know as soon as possible.
Please help Grace Lutheran Church celebrate its 65th year and raise money for its mission and ministry. We would be very grateful and thankful for your assistance.

Just a reminder for those who are participating – we will meet following worship this Sunday, July 13th to begin our summer book discussion about Barbara Brown Taylor’s An Altar in the World. Please prepare Chapters 1-4.
We will be singing some different hymns in worship including one that may be new for a lot of us. To give you just a taste of our Post Communion Hymn, take a moment to watch the youtube clip below. Certainly there IS a sweet, sweet Spirit in GLC!
See you in church!

Check out our new doors!
This is just the first step in the process, but I wanted you to see just how beautiful they are and how much light they let into the narthex.
A big THANK YOU to all who have helped with this much needed renovation.
Thank you to all who have given to our Capital Campaign. We are still around $3,000 short of our goal but there is still time to help. Any gift is greatly appreciated!
