Grace Lutheran Church is a people and place where generosity and graciousness abound. We live that in many ways, including how we respond to the opportunity to build up our faith community and the people it serves through what we offer.

We believe that God has richly blessed us as individuals, and we acknowledge and accept our calling to be Christ for others through giving of our time, talents, and treasures. In this way, we express appreciation for all that God has given us. Together, we challenge each other to be reflections of God’s graciousness and generosity to those around us. We do this with grace, for Grace, and for all those served by our faith community. It is in this giving that we grow in our relationship with God and God’s world.

We embrace equal sacrifice, knowing we come from different places and live in different economic realities. We ask that you give this prayerful consideration for your family.

Below, you’ll find different ways to give to the ministry of Grace Lutheran Church. There is incredible, transformative, engaging ministry happening in this community, and we don’t plan on stopping anytime soon. The experiences and relationships we build at Grace last a lifetime, and we’ll continue to create spaces and opportunities for faith-forming experiences, grace-filled relationships, and engaging programs.
