Welcome to Grace!
Lenten Services begin Wednesday, February 18, with soup, sandwich and the Word. Meal serving is from 5:30 – 6:30 p.m., followed by a 15-minute Lenten drama. Everyone is welcome!
At Grace our growing congregation greets families and friends in a caring and loving atmosphere. We believe that a family of any size will feel the Christian warmth and friendliness as a cross section of all ages grows and learns together at Grace.
Grace has a long community tradition. Our church was originally founded as Bagstevold Lutheran Congregation in 1875. In 1962 the name of the church was changed to Grace Lutheran Church. In 2005 we moved to our new facility just north of the old church building with the goal of being a blessing to our community.
As our cornerstone indicates, the new building was “Built by Faith.” God’s gift of faith leads us to look to Him to bless our efforts in this new building. We rejoice in the forgiveness, life, and peace given to us in Jesus Christ. We look for the Holy Spirit to nourish us by God’s Word and Sacraments that we might grow in our faith, service, and outreach to our community. We extend our hand in welcome to those who would join us in this community of faith.
Grace is a congregationally centered and empowered fellowship of believers. As a member of the Lutheran Congregations in Mission for Christ (LCMC) we are firmly committed to accepting the authority of the Bible.
We reject the notion that science, personal experience, tradition or other human endeavors have equal footing with the Bible in matters of faith. We are certainly aware that these endeavors contribute to our conversations and deliberations, but God’s revelation of Himself in the Bible must be our final authority in matters of faith and practice.
We offer many worship and fellowship opportunities! Explore our website to find out more about us and contact us if you have questions. We look forward to hearing from you.
