All are welcome - come as you are. Worship with Grace is joyous and liturgical. Focused on what God has done for us in Christ, we then turn our focus to the ways we can respond in the world. Then join us for coffee & goodies afterwards- a chance to greet you and talk!
The Grace choir sings every Sunday during the school year, and provides strong musical leadership to the congregation. The choir sings a broad repertoire of music, which is a meaningful aspect of our worship life. And they have a good time at Wednesday rehearsal! Email the music director here or find out more on our music page.
Adult Forum meets every Sunday at 8:45am, before Worship, in the Fellowship Hall of Grace to discuss the lessons for that Sunday, listen to guest speakers from the community telling us about ways their non-profits reach out to those in need and how we can become involved, or discuss faith life with each other.
Sunday, January 8, 2017: We welcome Jeanne Nijhowne teaching "Consider the Source: A Brief History of the Ancient Near East." Jeanne teaches at CU, and was with us last year to teach us about antiquities in Syria and Iraq. She has a passion for the history of Mesopotamia, and is an engaging presenter. Her class on January 8 sets the background for her class on January 15.
Sunday, January 15, 2017: Jeanne Nijhowne continues her presentation with "Consider the Source: Flood Stories." The Bible is not the only place where we read of a flood story in an ancient civilization. Come and learn more about the settings that led to flood stories.
On Wednesday evenings, Grace Middle School youth and Pastor Janice meet with Mount Calvary Lutheran for Confirmation ministry. Youth spend 2-3 years learning about the Bible, about our Lutheran identity, and exploring questions of faith. Additionally, Grace participates in the annual Rocky Mountain Synod Youth Gathering, and goes to confirmation camp at Rainbow Trail Lutheran Outdoor Ministries. Please contact Pastor Janice if you are interested in Confirmation or have questions on your own faith journey.
