At Grace Lutheran Church, we see each person as a unique individual God loves – our doors are open to everyone.
We are a gathering of people who are:
Grace offers four services each Sunday morning. Each service is about an hour long.
8:15 & 9:45 a.m. – Traditional Lutheran worship with liturgy led by the organ and choir. Holy Communion is celebrated at both services.
11:15 a.m. – Informal contemporary service led by a band and singers. The liturgy is filled with contemporary Christian songs yet still contains familiar elements of traditional Lutheran worship. Holy Communion is celebrated.
11:15 a.m. Spanish – Family-friendly service following a familiar Lutheran liturgy but is completely in Spanish. Holy Communion is celebrated. Note: This service is NOT held the second Sunday of each month; instead, we offer a bilingual service (see below).
11:15 a.m. Bilingual – On the second Sunday of each month, the Spanish and Contemporary services worship together. This service is shaped by contemporary Christian songs and contains parts in English and in Spanish. Holy Communion is celebrated.Children and youth activities – 9:45 a.m. on Sundays throughout the school year. Join us for a meal on Wednesdays (during the school year) at 4:45 p.m., followed by a conversation about the word of God.
We want you to feel comfortable and to know you are welcome here! Our greeters & ushers are here to help you find what you need, whether it’s our nursery, large print bulletins, children’s activity bags, our sanctuary, restrooms or anything else…
Handicap parking is available or you may also drop someone off right at our church door and then park. In the Sanctuary, the ushers can provide large print bulletins. During Communion, assistants will come to your seat if a request is made to the usher.
Join us from 9-10 a.m. in Fellowship Hall for coffee, tea, refreshments, and conversation. You’ll have a chance to meet the pastors and chat with others in the church.
We encourage everyone to wear what you feel comfortable wearing. Some wear suits and ties while others wear jeans.
Peruse our info and sign-up boards in the lobby and Fellowship Hall to learn about our work throughout Hendersonville, fellowship activities, Bible studies, small group, various ministry opportunities, and much more… We look forward to meeting you and exploring how Grace might be part of your life.
If you want to explore membership, we normally offer Grace 101 membership classes in February, May, and October. Contact a pastor anytime for additional information about Grace or membership.
Holy Communion is celebrated every Sunday at all services. You don’t have to be a member (or a Lutheran) to partake us. As we share the bread and wine, we believe that Christ is truly present in the sacrament and among us. Gluten-free wafers are available from the pastor by request. Communion is shared by either common cup or intinction (dipping the bread into the wine). We welcome all baptized persons to join us for Communion, as you are comfortable doing so. Children are welcome to commune or to come forward for a blessing.If you are unable to come forward to receive Communion, please inform an usher and a pastor will be happy to bring Communion to you at your place.
Children are welcome at all worship services. Bags with Children’s bulletins, crayons, & toys are available in the entry hall and our ushers are happy to help you locate them. We offer a “Prayground” near the sanctuary entry for children who become too active during worship.
At the 11:15 a.m. service, Pre-K through 5th graders, start in worship with their family. After the Children’s Message they are invited to follow their teacher to Bible Story Time. They’ll hear a Bible story, play a game, or create an art project, all designed to bring the lesson alive for them. They return to church in time for Communion. Bible Story Time also is available at the 9:45 a.m. service during the summer months.
For young children (0 to 5 years), nursery is available during all services. The nursery is located in the education wing hallway, first door on the right. Parents can drop children off prior to the start of worship or anytime during the service.
