Here are some frequently asked questions. In case you can't find the answer you were looking for, we invite you to call the church office at (262) 251-0670 or email.
What will happen if I visit Grace?
We believe that you will experience the God of love and the love of our people. We appreciate people who visit us. We want to welcome you and honor you for visiting with us. We do not believe in a high-pressure "sales pitch" to get you to return. We hope that through your time with us you will experience the love of God and His people.
Why come to Grace?
Grace is a family growing in Christ while reaching out in love. We are a church family that strives to be a biblical model of faithfulness to God and relevance to culture and compassion to people. We believe in the Truth of the Triune God and both the depravity and beauty of humanity, and ultimately, the need for a Savior to reconcile humanity unto God. We believe that Jesus is our Savior. But "salvation" is not merely the goal; this beautiful reception of God's grace is a door to a lifestyle of Holy Living. We also believe that the Church is called to walk humbly, love mercy, and seek the lost through God’s Grace. We believe that this is what you will experience when you visit Grace.
Who is Grace for? Who comes out?
Anyone. Come and see. Just come as you are. We won't sell anything or be pushy. We don't want to make you feel uncomfortable, but at the same time, we're not a church that caters everything around the "consumer-oriented" mentality of our current culture. We believe that a church is a community (Acts 2:42-47), and this means a community of relationship. We sing, we listen, we share Holy Communion, we collect offering, and we hang out. Grace is not a church that focuses or targets a particular demographic. It is growing as a diverse community - economically, generationally, and ethnically. We've got engineers, students, parents, kids, programmers, artists, people looking for work, those who've gone to church regularly, those who've come back after many years, and those who've never been to church before. Who comes? People just like you.
When do you offer Communion?
Communion is offered at each service.
Who can participate in Holy Communion?
If you wish to partake of the Lord’s Supper at Grace, please be guided by your response to these questions:
- Do you believe that you are a sinner and in need of the forgiveness offered by Christ in the Lord’s Supper?
- Do you believe that Christ’s body and blood are truly present in, with, and under the bread and wine even as Christ promised?
- Do you believe in Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, as taught at Grace Lutheran Ministries and, by your participation in the sacrament, give testimony to the faith we share?
Before communing for the first time at Grace, you are asked to speak with one of the pastors. Children are welcomed at the Lord’s Table to receive a blessing but should not partake of the Sacrament before a Communion class or Confirmation.
How large is Grace Lutheran?
Our church family consists of approximately 2,000 members. But we minister to a much larger number of people than just our member count.
What are the church office hours?
The church office is open Monday through Thursday from 8 am until 3 pm. Please call for an appointment.
What "branch" of the Lutheran Church does Grace belong to?
Grace Lutheran is a member of the Lutheran Church – Missouri Synod (LCMS), consisting of 2.5 million baptized members, and ranks as the second largest Lutheran church body in North America and the 11th largest Christian denomination in the United States.
I'm not Lutheran. Can I still attend services here?
Of course! We welcome anyone who seeks to know Christ and to make Christ known. We have an exciting member program if you want to join, but you are welcome to worship with us regardless of your current or past status.
Can I attend the church regularly but not join?
Absolutely! We welcome the opportunity to provide ministry to all who seek to know God's truth. If you are interested in membership, visit this page.
