MISSION/VISION/VALUES

Mission Statement

Following Jesus' teachings, Grace seeks to educate, lead, and partner with all people through discipleship to worship, service and faith celebration.

Vision Statement

Grace Lutheran Church is a worshiping, caring, and giving community of believers who are always looking for new and exciting ways to be witnesses to the Grace of God. We are committed to following Jesus' example by serving each other and those in need, being a good neighbor in the community, seeking out and welcoming those who have no church home, being involved and supportive as partners of efforts throughout the community and the world, renewing the spiritual growth of our members of all ages, and developing future leaders of the church. We continue to listen to the Spirit, following wherever it leads.

Values

The above Mission/Vision/Value statements are summarized from the 2012 Grace Lutheran Church Vision Plan. We have continued to focus on these values and carry out recommendations of the Vision Team since 2012.
In 2017 a LEAD team of Grace Lutheran members was gathered to explore how we at Grace Live Everyday As Disciples. Top themes emerging are communication (both internal and external), taking care of each other, intentional outreach to neighbors, and utilizing partnerships to strengthen our missions. The LEAD Team has re-affirmed that ongoing implementation of our 2012 Vision Plan is highly relevant. The LEAD Team work is continuing in 2019.
