LETTER FROM PASTOR ROD PARKER:
Days are upon that I had hoped not to see in my lifetime or in my ministry.
Given the rapidly evolving situation with Covid-19, we are suspending all services at Grace Lutheran Church.
Let us pray that our time apart will be short, and that God's mercy would preserve us all.
In the meantime please join our Facebook group where I will be live streaming prayers, and an abbreviated service on Sunday morning.
Please copy and paste any of the links shown below: https://www.facebook.com/groups/509934142353756/
Your brother in Christ,
Pastor Rod Parker
