Our SPECIAL MISSION ENVELOPES for May & June are designated for “Friends of the Seminary”, a volunteer group that assists our seminary students who may be struggling to pay bills, or buy necessities like clothing and food. Both Pastor Sorenson and Pastor Gaertner have become the shepherds of Grace directly upon their graduation from seminary. We would like to return thanks for this blessing by offering help to current Lutheran seminary students.

PandaMania is coming to Grace! Vacation Bible School will be held July 25-29 from 5:30-8:00 pm. We will start out with a simple supper followed by bible study, crafts, singing and games. Invite your friends! We are always in need of volunteers to make VBS successful, if you would like to help in anyway, please contact the church office or see Randy Broeker.

What We Learned in Sunday School Today…In Sunday School, the children learned the story of Peter and Cornelius (Acts 10) and how like them the Good News comes to us. Talk about how in church we receive the Good News that, although we are judged unrighteous and deserving of death, God mercifully declares us holy, righteous, and innocent because of Christ. What does this mean for our daily lives is a good question to discuss as a family.
