What to Expect

What are services like?
We celebrate worship in a traditional Lutheran liturgical setting, using the ELW as our basis. About 50 minutes in length and communion is celebrated at every service. Children's sermons, choir, chanted psalms, interactive sermons, and an all-inclusive worship bulletin.

What is the community like?
Grace's church family is a very open and loving group comprised of everyone from newborns to those in their 90's, and a good smattering in between!

What if I'm not a Christian?
Seekers, pragmatists, philosophers, and everyone else with a mind for discussion, an opinion to voice, and ears to hear are welcome! We are committed to serving Christ in word and deed and would love to learn from you as to how you understand that which is greater than us.

    My grandparents were members here in the 1920’s. I have a bulletin from 1927. My grandfather was Carl Pressman. It says he was the orchestra director of the sunday school and held other offices. I have tried to call the church number this week to visit the church during the week but no answer. I would just like to see the sanctuary if someone could let us in I would really appreciate that. My cell is 301 707 9892. I live in LaVale Md.
