Establishing a community music Program at Grace Lutheran Church:

Have you been blessed with musical talents?  We are excited to connect with the wider community as we experience the love of God through music and other artistic expressions! We invite you to share your musical and artistic gifts as we worship at Grace.      

We welcome all genres that celebrate the goodness of God.  Contact us at Grace Lutheran Church and let us know what 2 or 3 minute  piece you would like to offer -- virtually or in-person -- during worship service at Grace.

Sunday, December 11 - Third Sunday of Advent:   A note of joyful expectation marks today’s worship. Isaiah announces that the desert shall rejoice and blossom, and Jesus points to the unexpected and transforming signs of God’s reign. We wait with patience for the coming of the Lord, even as we rejoice at his presence among us this day: in word and holy supper, in church and in our homes, in silent reflection and in works of justice and love. We pray that God would open our eyes and ears to the wonders of Christ’s advent among us.

Our Advent daily devotional for personal reflection and prayer is "Good Things Come in Small Packages".  We will meet in the narthex at 6:30 pm on Wednesdays December 14 and 21 for reflection, encouragement and prayer.      If you like, bring a brown bag dinner for 6:00 pm sustenance before Advent devotions.
