At Grace we live to share the Good News of Jesus Christ with our neighbors and rejoice in the fellowship we share as a church family.
Our church is very active in the local and global community. Our men, women, and children participate in service projects throughout the year.
We offer support to the community in a variety of ways from special events throughout the year open to the public, to providing goods/services to those in need.
Greetings in the name of our risen Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, Son of the Living God. We have resumed worshiping in person! You can attend worship in our sanctuary, at 11am. In keeping with CDC and Ohio Dept. of Health guidelines, masks will not be required of vaccinated individuals at worship. Also in keeping with CDC and Ohio Dept. of Health guidelines, all unvaccinated persons (regardless of reason for not being vaccinated) are still required to wear masks at worship. This policy may or may not change at short notice based on changing CDC and ODOH guidelines.
If you cannot worship with us in person for any reason, please continue to worship with us virtually, by clicking here. The bulletin for this week’s worship can be found on our info page so you can follow along.
In person worship is strictly for those who comfortable doing so. We will be socially distanced and hand sanitizing. Please stay safe. Don’t take chances; this is not over yet, and Jesus wants all of us to not just survive, but to thrive and be alive with our faith and roles in proclaiming the Kingdom in this world.
Now collecting items for Health Kits and School Kits!
We are compiling kits for personal health and also school students. These kits will be sent to Lutheran World Relief (click here for their website) who then distributes all the nationally collected kits, to other countries that are in dire need of help; countries such as Guatemala, Haiti, Nepal Syria, etc. that are struggling to provide basic needs for their citizens. Items, or full kits, can be dropped off at the church on Sunday mornings, or Tuesdays/Wednesdays/Thursdays 9:30am-1pm. Please see the lists for items needed. Thanks in advance for your help!
A Statement from the ELCA
“The ELCA’s social policy resolution, “Condemnation of White Supremacy and Racist Rhetoric,” adopted by the 2019 ELCA Churchwide Assembly, states: “As persons called to love one another as God has loved us, we therefore proclaim our commitment to speak with one voice against racism and white supremacy. We stand with those who are targets of racist ideologies and actions.” As church, together we must work to condemn white supremacy in all forms and recommit ourselves to confront and exorcize the sins of injustice, racism and white supremacy in church and society and within ourselves as individuals and households.”
As stated on the ELCA’s website. Click HERE for more information.
The mission of Grace Evangelical Lutheran Church is to live the Gospel of Jesus Christ and share God’s good news with others with an emphasis on youth and families.
