lutheran-life-smGrace has been invited to pilot a new program for anyone wanting to become a member or just wanting to learn more about the Lutheran Church in general. We have several opportunities coming up in which we’d like to invite you to participate:

  1. Life in God’s Grace – this class begins on Sunday, February 3, at 9:45AM in the 8th grade classroom. Taught by one of our called teachers, Eric Macke, it covers the basics of the Christian Faith from a Lutheran perspective. The course will run until Sunday, May 12.
  2. Lent with Pastor L – Our longtime Senior Pastor, Rev. Kevin Loughran, will be leading a discussion group on the sermons that will be preached during Lent. The group will meet from 6-6:45 PM and include a light soup and sandwich supper. These will be a part of the membership process at Grace, but are open to all who inquire. They are ideally designed for people with questions about Christianity in general, and Lutheranism in particular. Pastor Loughran is known for his gentle demeanor and non-threatening style of teaching. The first one of these sessions will be March 13.
  3. Seven Big Questions that People ask Sermon Series – Throughout the Sundays in Lent – starting on March 10th, Pastors Loughran and Mackowiak will preach on seven questions that people are asking about the Christian faith. The questions included are, “Does life have a purpose?”, “Why does God allow pain and suffering?” and “Can I know God personally?” among other topics. It’s a tough world, we all know it. These topics will provide a great starting point for discussions among those who want to find a respite from the whirlwind that surrounds them.

We believe the tenets of the Christian faith as they are outlined in the three ecumenical creeds: the Apostles’ Creed, the Nicene Creed, and the Athanasian Creed, as well as the teaching of Martin Luther and the reformers that are summarized in three short phrases: Grace alone, Scripture alone, Faith alone.

GRACE ALONE God loves the people of the world, even though they are sinful, rebel against Him, and don’t deserve His love. He sent Jesus, His Son, to love the unlovable and save the ungodly.

SCRIPTURE ALONE The Holy Bible is God’s inerrant and infallible Word, in which He reveals His Law and His Gospel of salvation in Jesus Christ. It is the sole rule and standard for Christian doctrine.

FAITH ALONE By His suffering and death, Jesus substituted Himself for all people and all time, purchasing for them forgiveness and eternal life. Those who hear this Good News and believe it have the eternal life that it offers. God creates faith in Christ and gives people forgiveness through Him.

  • We believe that it is only in and through God’s Son Jesus that a person has fellowship with God, as Jesus Himself said, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” (John 14:6 .) Jesus Christ, His life, death, resurrection and ascension to the right hand of the Father in heaven is at the heart of all that is preached and taught at Grace. Through a personal relationship with Jesus that begins in baptism and continues with hearing God’s Word, one becomes and remains a child of God. (John 3 : 5-8.)
