On Saturday, May 19th, Eric Larry was welcomed into the body of Christ through the water and the word of Holy Baptism. It was a joyous celebration for all!

Life is full of bittersweet moments. Often they take place in times of transition, when one life chapter ends and another begins.
This past Sunday was one of these bittersweet moments for the people of Grace Lutheran. We said “farewell and Godspeed” to a member who has been with us for 50 years and is moving to another state after much prayer and discernment. While we know our “goodbyes” are more like “see you laters,” and we will still stay connected through phone calls, written letters, and the Holy Spirit, it is still an emotional time for many. We pray that our dear sister in Christ will know that she is in our hearts and prayers even though she is many miles away.
A reading from Exodus: “The Lord said, “I am going to send an angel in front of you, to guard you on the way and to bring you to the place that I have prepared.”"
A reading from John: “Jesus said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness but will have the light of life.”"
Eternal God, we thank you for our sister in Christ and for the time we have shared with her. As she has been a blessing to us, send her forth to be a blessing to others; through Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord. Amen.
Why do Christians put ashes on their foreheads on Ash Wednesday? What do they mean? What is Lent? Why is it 40 days?
These questions, and others, are answered in this great 2 minute video by Busted Halo. Please watch!
During the Season of Lent (and every season!) you are invited and welcome to join us here at Grace Lutheran Church for worship every Sunday at 10:00 AM.
We pray you have a blessed Lent.
Dear Friends in Christ,
the Council has decided to cancel our Worship Service on Sunday, August 28, so that everyone can stay safe and sound at home.
So tie down the patio furniture, and say a prayer for all!
You voted, and decided that 5.30pm and 8.00pm would be the best times for our Christmas Eve Services on Dec. 24. Join us for carols, Holy Communion, Silent Night sung to candlelight, and Joy to the World! The 5.30 service will have a children’s message, and child friendly lessons and prayers. All are welcome!
