Who We Are

Grace is one of many good churches that truly makes Deephaven, MN a deep haven. After starting in a chicken coop in the spring of 1946, the first worship service was held on Palm Sunday of that year in the Deephaven Village Hall. Sweeping the hall clean from beer bottles each week for the Sunday service, the Grace family slowly built up from humble beginnings to 1500 people in it's heyday in the 1970's-'80's.

As the Lord has been pruning us since the 90's, our diverse group of families has a desire to connect with God and each other to leave a legacy. Grace is like a mighty oak--it has some scars from over the years like any human movement, yet it stands, tall and majestic, full of grace and truth, providing shade and rest to all who come near. We are excited to welcome you to the 50+ families and individuals we are growing with.

We believe God has called us to connect and befriend people in Deephaven and beyond like Jesus. Anyway we can serve, we want to be an asset to our homes, neighborhoods, schools, and businesses to see Jesus' prayer answered...in Deephaven (on earth) as it is in heaven.
As we grow in radiantly reflecting Jesus to the community by training the next generation of leaders in Deephaven, we desire to also go and make servant leaders in the Twin Cities, in the US and in the select places He calls and sends us to throughout the earth.

Our Services

What if I'm not a Christian?
Great! We love journeying with people who are asking tough questions and truly seeking to find God since He promised through one of His prophets, Jeremiah, "You will find me if you seek me with all your heart."

Pastor Dan Sollie

Hi, I’m Pastor Dan Sollie! I grew up in Fertile, Minnesota – a small town of about 800 residents and plenty of humor surrounding the name ‘Fertile’. After graduating from high school, I attended the Lutheran Bible Institute (LBI) in Seattle, then moved back to Minnesota and completed my general credits at Moorhead State University. I returned once again to the Lutheran Bible Institute where I received my Ministry Degree with concentration in Christian Education. I met my wife Kim in 1973 while attending Moorhead State and married her in '75. One of our shared loves was mission work. After attending a mission conference at LBI, we decided to take steps to actively pursue cross-cultural missions. We joined the World Mission Prayer League and began preparations to move to Ecuador, South America. One year later, following extensive language study in Southern Texas and Mexico, we moved to Ecuador. We truly enjoyed living in Ecuador! The people and the culture coupled with the language and work was the fulfillment of a desire come true for Kim and myself. Every four years we would return to the U.S. to spend one year visiting family, churches and supporters, and continuing our studies. While in Ecuador, we raised our four children and twenty years later in 2000, we returned to the U.S. Our motto for our mission work has always been, “We go to help, we come back blessed.” In 1993, while on furlough, I attended the American Lutheran Theological Seminary in St. Paul and began working toward ordination. Upon completion in 2003, I received a call to pastor here at Grace. I have a great appreciation for this congregation as well as those I work with. Our goal is to connect people to Jesus Christ (the King).
