Lent Is HERE - Mid-Week Lenten worship continues on Wednesdays at 7:00 pm alternating between Grace Lutheran and Solomon's UCC. The theme this year is "Grace and Ernest Go to Church" and will address some of the theological questions raised by the Reformation (2017 is the year we commemorate the 500th anniversary of the Reformation). When the service is at Grace, worship will center on the beautiful Holden Evening Prayer liturgy. A social gathering with light refreshments will follow the service.

Lenten Project - Our Lenten Project this year is to purchase goats ($50.00 each) and piglets ($30.00 each) through ELCA Good Gifts for people in nearly 90 foreign countries to help them with food and income for their families. You may donate any amount by using a pew envelope and marking it either "piglet" or "goat". See the poster in church to track our progress.
Social Ministry Project - Our newest Social Ministry project is helping out at St. Peter's Church with their "First Friday of the Month" meal. The next date is April 7 and we need you! Grace will be in charge of planning, cooking, and serving the dinner of Easter ham and all the trimmings. Baked goods are also needed for dessert. If you are able to bake, help out for all day or just a few hours, talk to Nancy Rex or Sandy Schantz. There are a number of Grace members that attend this monthly free meal. This is a great community outreach project and we need many volunteers to make it work. And the king will answer them, “Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me.” ~ Matthew 25:40
