How might you serve at Grace this fall? We are always looking for additional lay ministry volunteers to serve as usher, greeter, lector, communion assistant, and numerous other roles. Joining the ranks does not obligate you too much — just an occasional call to assist in one of the liturgical cogs of Grace Lutheran.
