MINISTRIES & SERVICE
Grace Lutheran Church has core ministries to serve our community and neighbors, including Manna Monday, Backpack Ministry, and Community Vacation Bible School. Grace Lutheran also serves our village and surrounding area through meals, fellowship circles, visitations, and mission work.
Our mission work supports internationally placed missionaries, regional missional congregations, and the NALC's mission driven activities in the wider denomination to support making disciples in our congregations, communities, and nations around the world.
1st & 3rd Mondays
What is Manna Monday?
Manna Monday is a free community meal offered every 1st & 3rd Monday at 6:00 pm in the Fellowship Hall, excluding major holidays. Everyone is welcome!
Grace Lutheran Church provides weekend food for students in our local community who may need assistance throughout the school year. We are always looking for donations and support to serve our local school district and students!
Donated food items need to be non-perishable and should not include peanut/peanut butter items. The most needed items for the meals include:
juice pouches, individual mac & cheese, individual cereals, individual fruit/vegetable cups, and snacks.
Donation bins are located in the church in the atrium and gathering space.
