Welcome to Grace!


Grace Lutheran Church of Apple Valley, is a congregation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, with a primarily traditional style of worship.

We believe that relationships—with God and with others—are what is most important. Beginning with God creating a world, continuing with God's choosing the people of Israel, and epitomized in Jesus Christ who walked among us, relationships are what God intended and what we focus on at Grace.

Welcoming without exception, listening without judgment, and supporting without prejudice . . . all people,"  is at the heart of our vision and mission statement. Our preaching emphasizes, and our programs support this passion, that God has made us to share and to care, being Christ for others. Join us on our pilgrimage . . . share our journey!
