Our Team

Grace Lutheran Church is made up of people set free, through the death and resurrection of Jesus, who are now free to follow the Holy Spirit's call into ministry in the world. Grace's staff supports everyday ministry working together as a team with all the members of Grace encouraging and supporting members in their ministry through fellowship, worship, service, outreach, and discipleship.
