Each Sunday at 9:00 AM, Grace offers
Sunday School for children and adults. Pastor Heinlein teaches the adult
class, offering topics that reinforce the theological foundations of
Lutheran theology. All are welcome.
Our traditional worship services, at 10:15 am each Sunday, reflect the
traditions of the Lutheran expression of the Church and use liturgies
from the Lutheran Book of Worship (LBW), Evangelical Lutheran Worship (ELW),
and Marty Haugen. Hymns are used
from the ELW, the LBW, With One
Voice and Renewing Worship.
Holy Communion is offered
at all Sunday services.
MEN IN MISSION
The men of Grace are offered the opportunity to participate in Lutheran
Men in Mission. This group meets on a regular basis on the 4th Saturday
of the month. LMM participates in
the life of the congregation in a number of ways and is also active in a
variety of service projects.
Grace has a long history of commitment to serving the needs
of people in the surrounding community, in the Central Ohio area, and to
people touched by national or international crises.
Locally, those activities include support of the
Food Pantry and other ministries of Lutheran Social Services, and participation in activities at Faith
We are able to respond to national and
international needs through Lutheran Social Services, through our
Southern Ohio Synod, through our national church (the Evangelical
Lutheran Church in America), and through organizations like Lutheran
LUTHERAN CHURCH WOMEN
There is an active women's organization at Grace that provides women
with several ways to participate. Dorcas Circle meets at 9:30am on the
third Wednesday of the month for fellowship and Bible study. The women participate in a number of service
areas; hold an annual Women's Banquet; oversee a number of meals
throughout the year; prepare quilts and kits for use overseas through
Lutheran World Relief; lead an annual Women's
Thankoffering Service and participate in local and national events.
The congregation has
always valued the role of youth in the life of the church. Some
activities involve youth of all ages. Some activities are focused on
junior and senior high youth. Some of the activities provide service to
the congregation or to the community. Some activities are social in
nature. Other activities have a spiritual emphasis.
Since the time of Martin Luther himself, the Lutheran tradition has
always valued and emphasized the role of music in our worship and
spiritual life. Grace is proud to maintain that same tradition.
Adults sing in the Chancel Choir as well as in
smaller groups or offer solos. Children and youth sing in the Youth
Choir. Individual instrumentalists also often enrich our services. And the congregation supports all of those activities with its
own strong singing during worship.
