Grace
Lutheran Church

Welcome

Our prayer is that our church will serve as a tool to share the great news of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. 
 
Easter Service: Grace Lutheran 4 11 21

Our online Service for 7/25/2021 Premiers at 10 am — https://youtu.be/YMXXvviOhMo
The focus this week is on trusting that God loves us, provides for us, and walks with us throughout our lives. PJ preaches on control vs trust, and inspires us to turn to our Lord and Savior always; Leslie Soltanian sings “On Eagle’s Wings” by Rev. Jan Michael Joncas (1978); Jessica Carroll serves as our Cantor; and Kevan Torveh plays cello on “Be Thou My Vision” with violinist Johana Krecji and our own Director of Music Ministries Mary Lou Basaraba on piano. Lots of beautiful music to lift our hearts and voices in praise and worship of our Lord! In Person Service at Grace Lutheran on Sundays at 10am. To attend you must wear a mask indoors in compliance with the L.A. Dept of Health Best Practices guidelines and the Health Officer Order of July 17, 2021.  Thanks for taking care of yourself and others!  
 
Please join us any way and anywhere you feel most comfortable. To request an in-home visit from the Pastor:

Our Mission

“A friendly church where ALL are welcome.” We strive to nurture spiritual growth by developing a personal relationship with the Lord, understanding His Word, and responding with generosity and love to the needs of the community.

What we believe

Our faith is based on the life-transforming truth of Jesus Christ who brings comfort and strength to people today, fills us with His love, and galvanizes us to reach out to others with that love.

This Sunday we concentrate on thanking the Lord for his healing power …. but healing to what end? Pastor Jim urges us to use the power of Christ’s resurrection to rise up in fellowship and unity and carry God’s blessings to all:         

“Rise up O saints of God; the church for you doth wait. Her strength unequal to the task; rise up & make her great.”

The readings, with Ashley Harding, are about pain, joy and sharing God’s blessings; the music reinforces the message: Claire Skelley sings “Healer of Our Every Ill”; Randy Murphy sings “To Dream”; Mary Lou Basaraba plays “On Eagle’s Wings”; and Tara Alexander gives a heartfelt Children’s Message on healing. May your heart overflow with God’s blessings!

Weekly Services

This Independence Day service begins with the visionary “America the Beautiful” sung by Tara Alexander. It’s one of those songs we think we know all the words to, yet I urge you to listen closely and join Tara in this heartfelt prayer and paean for our nation. Fittingly, in the Epistle Lesson today Paul mentions visions of heaven and glory, yet also acknowledges his weaknesses and pain. Pastor Jim uses that lesson to encourage us to not only look honestly AT our troubles, but to look beyond them to the glory of God-with-us in every step of our journey.
 
Upcoming Services: Next Sunday, July 11 at 10am, will be our first In-Person service in Grace Lutheran Church in 16 months. However, virtual/online services will continue and I’ll be sending you out the weekly links as usual. They’ll also be posted on our website GraceCulver.org., and on the church Facebook page. You can also become a “subscriber” to our Youtube page (just a couple of clicks) and then you will receive notice when the new video is up. Please join us anyway and anywhere you feel comfortable!
