Easter Egg Hunt

Easter Egg Hunt

Each year the family of Grace hosts an Easter Egg Hunt for our community. On the Saturday 8 days before Easter, we gather at 9:00 a.m. and begin an adventure that tells the story of Jesus life, death and resurrection. Children are given opportunities to make art/craft projects, color pictures, play with Play Dough, hear the story of Jesus, and hunt Easter Eggs. The event typically lasts until noon, at which time each child is given a bag of trinkets as a gift from Grace.

Great Advent-ure

The Christmas season is a special time of year for all of us. At Grace we invite children in our community to join us for a celebration of the reason for the season, the birth of a king. The first Saturday in December the Grace Advent-ure is held. Advent is a time of preparation in the Lutheran Church. Just as people 2,000 years ago prepared for the arrival of the promised Messiah, we prepare for the same Jesus. Our preparation looks at the amazing way God broke into human history and sent his only Son into this world. We take time to reflect on this the greatest story, but also we look at how Jesus has embraced us with his love, and calls us to shine his light to people around us. This is a special time of looking forward to Jesus return when he will bring all who believe to be with him in his new heaven and new earth.

In 2013 the 2nd Annual Advent-ure will take place on December 7th, beginning at 9:00 in the morning. Children ages 3-11 are invited to join us for a morning of fun. Mark you calendars and plan to take part in this morning of family fun.

Vacation Bible School


Vacation Bible School is a great time to get together with friends during the summer vacation. Grace Lutheran Church recently joined with Zion Lutheran Church and held a joint Vacation Bible School. The theme for this year was "Paul's Amazing Journey to Share the Gospel." Each day we gathered as one large group to sing songs and hear about the project we were undertaking. After our opening, we split up into groups by ages and visited with Paul in Athens, prepared for Olympic Events, went to the Greek marketplace for crafts, and sat down for the ever favorite snacks.

Approximately 30 children shared in the fun and festivities of Athens, learned a little about Greek culture, and heard the great Good News of Jesus sacrifice for each of us. Each day we looked for God sightings, places where we saw God at work in our lives or in the world around us. As we wrapped up on Friday, an amazing God sighting was experienced by us all, as two of the young ladies attending the VBS, gave up their "marketplace" time to make a cards and get them signed for one of the volunteers who had served us all even though she had a broken ankle. The love of God was seen in the gift of these two youth and especially in the response of Mrs. C.
