Worship – We meet for worship at 10 am on Sunday mornings. While our worship services lean toward traditional, our music has energy and we incorporate non-traditional hymns into our traditional worship settings.
Sunday School – All children, ages 3 years - 5th grade are invited to attend Sunday school at 11:15.
Adult Education – Beginning at 9 am on Sundays, all adults are welcome to join in our discussions on specific books or people of the Bible. During the fall of 2018 and into the spring of 2019 we will be studying Ephesian.s
Confirmation Classes – Youth in grades 7-8 are invited to attend Confirmation Classes. We meet once a month for 3 hours on Sunday after worship, beginning with lunch together. Parents are involved but are not present for the entire time of teaching. The purpose of Confirmation classes is to assist our youth in learning about God so that they can affirm the promises that were made when they were baptized. Youth are confirmed in the fall of their 9th grade year.
High School Youth Lunches – Since Grace Lutheran is located only 1 block from Natrona County High School, we serve lunch for youth in grades 10-12 on Wednesdays at 1:00 pm. Any youth wanting a good home cooked meal is welcome!
Serving Dinner at the Central Wyoming Rescue Mission – On the 4th Monday of the month we prepare and serve dinner at 5:30 at the Rescue Mission. Youth and adults are welcome to assist – sign up to either serve or prepare food on the sign-up sheet on the bulletin board in the church foyer.
Prayer Group – We meet every Tuesday at 12:15 pm for a time to pray for the needs of individuals, our nation and our world. If you are interested in joining in, please contact Pastor Brenda at 307-235-6329.
Service to our Community and beyond - Each month our Evangelism and Social Ministry Committee chooses a project for our congregation. This might be a local project, such as collecting hygiene items for the Central Wyoming Rescue Mission, or a global project like packing shoe boxes for Operation Christmas Child. There is always a place to volunteer as we work on our ministry projects.
Bible Study at Meadow Winds – Since we have members who are residents of Meadow Winds, we hold one of our weekly Bible Studies in the Chapel at Meadow Winds. We meet on Monday afternoons at 3:30 and study the Bible passages that will be read on the coming Sunday. Grace members are welcome to attend with the residents of Meadow Winds.
Prayer Requests – If you, or someone you love, would like to be added to our prayer list, please contact Mona in the church office at 307-235-6329. If you need to leave a message, please include your name and how long you would like the person to be included on our list. If you leave a phone number, we can follow-up to see if other assistance might be helpful.
