Services will be held at Grace Evangelical Lutheran Church, 430 W Griswold St. Please note that face coverings will be required and social distancing measures will be observed in accordance with CDC guidelines.

We’re excited to bring Sunday service to you in a new way. Please note that we may experience some technical hiccups in the beginning but we will do our very best to deliver a high-quality experience to you.
A Zoom subscription for video conferencing has been secured by the Church for use in all aspects of our Church life. Circles, committees and small fellowship groups are encouraged to contact the office for login information. Please visit our contact page or call (920) 748-5433 during office hours.
We are attempting to stay up to date with State and Federal rulings and will keep in touch with you as well.
Video of the announcements will be posted here and on Facebook each week. We will also do our best to archive all the messages, sermons, and announcements for viewing later.
Please check back often for updates for all activities
Dear Members of Grace Lutheran Church
As we join with the rest of our state and nation in seeking to do what we can to help lower unnecessary exposure to the Coronavirus (COVID-19), we have decided upon the following:
Sunday School: With the re-opening of in-person church services, we will again provide both in person and virtual options beginning January 17. Masks will be required for all children and teachers. We will strictly adhere to all social distancing policies. We will meet virtually on January 10 and begin the option of in-person class on January 17. All Sunday School classes will begin at 9:15a.m. and end at 10:00a.m. We will send virtual class information and updates via email. Please also join the Google classrooms (links at the bottom). All children must be registered for Sunday School. If you have not already submitted a registration form, please do so as soon as possible. The registration form can be found here.
Programming for Children & Youth: We are currently investigating ways to make sure our Youth programs are reaching out to parents and children. Please check back often for updates as well as watch your email for info.
Food & Meals: SHARING TABLE returning to a regular schedule the 2nd Tuesday of the month. Meals will be provided by DRIVE-THRU outside the kitchen door from 5:00 PM – 6:00 PM. All are welcome!
Other food ministries are still suspended until further notice.
Adult Classes & Activities: The decisions about whether to hold the various groups and classes for adults will be handled by the leaders and participants. Wired Word is holding class via Zoom Conference Call – on computer or phone…Please notify firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to be added to the list and join us.
Likewise, other groups that use the building will be making their own decisions about whether to meet or not. Circles and small groups can make their own decisions, but must follow safety protocols if they are in the building. They are also welcome to use the church Zoom account.
Watch for Further Updates
As you all know, this is a fluid and evolving situation and there is a lot of anxiety and concern for what it all means and when it might end. Remember that our prayers change thing, so remember when life is difficult pray hard and often!

The Food of God for the People of God.
…grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.2 Peter 3:18
The above Bible verse, along with our vision statement — Gather, Grow, and Go in Grace — inspires us and what we do here at Grace Lutheran.
Whether you are a long-time member of Grace Lutheran or a first-time visitor, and no matter from where you are coming, we recognize God equally loves and equally values all God’s people. God has given special talents and gifts to you and every person who enters through our doors.
Communion Served: Drive-thru communion served per above schedule

GATHER GROW GO
We GATHER throughout the week as a community of God’s people in a welcoming and friendly environment to establish and nurture caring relationships.
We strive to GROW in our faith in many different ways, to learn and see how God is and can be present and active in our world and in each of our lives.
Then we GO into God’s world to live whole and joyous lives, and to serve God and God’s holy kingdom as followers of the way of Christ.
I invite you to come and experience God’s for you and for the world at Grace Evangelical Lutheran Church!
