Grace Weekly 1/3/2019

Worship this Weekend
January 5 & 6
Epiphany means “manifestation.” On this day we celebrate the revelation of Christ to all nations. Along with the magi, we kneel at Jesus’ feet. We give the gift of our praise, but God’s gift to us is the great epiphany of God’s grace and mercy. Renewed in worship, we go forth to witness to the light that shines brightly in our midst.
Please join us for worship:
Saturday at 5:00 pm
Sunday at 7:45 am, 9:00 am,
and 11:15 am
Christian Education for all ages at 10:15 am
Celebration of Epiphany and
Burning of the Greens
Sunday, January 6
3:00 p.m.
At the Hirt Tree Farm
917 Arnold Rd, Westminster
Join us for a unique experience of sharing the light of Christ as we celebrate the Epiphany of our Lord. On this day we rejoice with the Wise Men that God’s gift of love is extended to people of all nations. In our worship and fellowship we will celebrate the depth of God’s grace in our lives.
Bring a live tree to be burned, if you have one. If not, join us anyway. Most of the festivities will be inside a warm building. There is not far to walk from the parking into the building.
This is an event for people of all ages!
Christmas 2018
Grace Lutheran Church made a significant impact on our community during the Christmas season. Here are the highlights of how we made a difference:
  • Table of Grace served meals on Christmas Day and New Years Day – Gift bags of helpful items were given to our neighbors
  • Our teens sponsored a basketball tournament raising $550 to give gifts to children in foster care. This event was supported by Thrivent Financial.
  • Our confirmation class, with the help of Thrivent Financial, supported a local family with Christmas gifts for two boys and their mom
  • Thirteen families received boxes of food and a Wal-Mart gift card
  • Boy Scout Troop 393 gave a large box of hats, gloves, and socks to the Cold Weather Shelter
  • Little Friends of Grace shared children’s hats, gloves and scarves with the Shepherd’s Staff
