Happy New Year!

A most blessed wish for wonderful new year! We trust that you have been safe through these last storms. We had very few people able to venture out and participate in Christmas Eve services or on Sunday, December 27. We hope that if you were planning to share a gift toward the ministry offered through Grace Lutheran you will do so in the weeks ahead.

Winter Storm Update

The winter storm that is moving into the Midlands projects a very difficult evening for Christmas Eve. Currently plans are to hold the Christmas Eve Service at 4:30 pm. It appears at this time (mid-day Wednesday) that the 11 pm service will be canceled. A final decision will be made shortly after mid-day on Thursday (Christmas Eve).

Christmas Eve Worship

You are invited to attend Christmas Eve worship. Worship times are 4:30 pm and 11:00 pm. The service will feature Carols, Communion and Candlelight.

Rejoice Choir brings Advent Choral Joy to Grace

The Adult Choir from Rejoice Lutheran, under the direction of Ray Swartz, shared their Advent Cantata on Sunday, December 13, during morning worship. It was a combination of Advent readings surrounded with chorale pieces. It was a truly inspirational musical tribute.
