Hi from the “Old Guy”
As a fellow member in the pew at Grace I’m taking this opportunity to invite you to join me in supporting the give25 campaign of our Concordia Lutheran Seminary. The plan is simple and spelled out in the paragraphs that follow.

In faithfulness to God's word (Acts 1:8), the mission of Grace Lutheran Church is "To proclaim in a warm caring atmosphere the good news of God's love and forgiveness in Christ to the people of our congregation, our community and the world."
We believe that there is only one true God, Who exists in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. God the Father is the creator of everything that exists. The Son is Jesus the Savior. The Holy Spirit inspired the entire Bible. It is the errorless Word of God that brings God's message of love and hope for all people. We accept that Scripture is accurately and faithfully interpreted in the documents contained in the Book of Concord.
“Where there is no vision, the people perish.”
-Proverbs 29:18 KJV
This old-language translation of proverbs 29:18 is snappy and memorable. A closer study of the verse in it's context will reveal a fuller picture: God’s people need prophets to guide them in the truth, and in times when those prophets are absent or silent, the people go astray or become discouraged. But I like the old language. “Where there is no vision, the people perish.”
Recently we have been talking about vision at Grace Lutheran Church. What does it mean to have vision? And what might happen to our family of faith if we were to establish a clear vision for our ministry together?
