WORSHIP 
WITH US

 

EVERY SUNDAY

at 9:00 am

 

Worship is the central activity we do together at Grace of God.  We gather to hear the comfort of the Gospel, to share the Lord's meal, to pray and sing together and to encourage, comfort and support  one another.  Whether you join us at church or watch online, Sunday mornings are a great time to connect with friends and be a part of something bigger than ourselves!  Please join us.

 

During the pandemic, we live stream our worship on the church Facebook page. Once conditions allow it, we will continue services at our Oakdale faciltiy. 

 

ALL ARE WELCOME

A MESSAGE
FROM OUR PASTOR

Hi.  I love being a part of the Grace of God community for a lot of reasons. But mostly because I need it!  I know what it's like to feel on the outside and I need the support and affirmation of brothers and sisters in Christ.  I also believe in the power of the Gospel to give us freedom and life and I am so privileged to be  able to share this good news as pastor of this congregation. I would love to get to know YOU.  I assure you that I will accept you as you are -- no matter what.   I believe we are all loved and wanted by God. Our brokenness draws us TO him.  Jesus was a friend to sinners and outcasts and went all the way to the cross to make sure we knew.   I am here for you to remind you.

WHAT MAKES US

WHO WE ARE


We preach the Gospel.

Scripture says that we are saved by grace alone; nothing we can do to get it and nothing we can do to prevent it.  For us, this is not just a thing to be believed but something that shapes how we live our lives and care for others.


We accept and love everyone just as they are.

We don't judge you; we embrace you.  We don't care how old you are or how much money you have.  It doesn't matter who you are or where you've been.  All are welcome at Grace of God.


We blend ancient and modern.

Our congregation is part of the long history of Christianity.  We sing new songs and remember familiar hymns.  Our worship is structured on the ancient liturgy and refreshed by contemporary forms.  We value music and art and expressions of the Gospel.


We are Lutheran and independent.

Some of our members come from other branches of Christianity,  some come from various Lutheran synods, and some have no formal religious background.  But we all indentify with the rich theological tradition of Lutheranism:  that we are saved by grace through faith,  Law and Gospel, Word and Sacrament, saint and sinner.  We choose not to affiliate with any denominational structure so that we have the freedom and autonomy to decide what is important to us.


We value service to others.

We respond to the good news of Jesus by giving back to our community and our world.  We don't do this to convert or manipulate others; we do this to serve others.  Whether it's working to make sure all have enough to eat or a place to sleep or just someone who will listen, we strive to support our neighbors.
