All Are Welcome at Grace Lutheran Church
Grace Lutheran Church in Woodstock, Illinois, is a welcoming community of faith rooted in the gospel of Jesus Christ and dedicated to our mission of Sharing God’s Grace.
Our 25-acre campus is handicapped accessible and we offer a variety of worship experiences each week, from traditional to informal and upbeat contemporary. Faith education and spiritual exploration classes will open your eyes to the Bible and God’s words for today’s world. We actively engage the Woodstock and McHenry County community, providing care for our neighbors in need and inviting others to learn about God. Through a wide range of activities for children, youth, adults and seniors we build deep friendships and share our faith.
If you seek something more than just frantic daily routine, if you want to share faith formation with your children, if you wish to be part of a group of people who are open to sharing life experiences, and if you want a place where you can explore your faith and God’s work in the world—Grace is here for you.
—Sharing God’s Grace
As members of Grace Lutheran Church, we gather and serve to Share God’s Grace with each other, with our community, and through our church body with the world, bearing witness to God’s love for all people. The ministries at Grace—our worship and music, our faith education opportunities, our ministry to the community, our small-group, children and family activities—all exist on the foundation and mission of Sharing God’s Grace.
—Worship, Evangelism, Discipleship,
Spirituality, Education, Leadership, Youth
We respond to God’s grace in worship through the breaking of bread, proclaiming of God’s word, and in songs of thanksgiving and praise. Our members invite others to come and learn about God’s love. Like Jesus, we minister to people in need around us.
Through practicing discipleship and enriching our spiritual lives, we deepen our understanding of God’s love. We engage our spiritual gifts and raise up leaders both in the congregation and in our community. And, through teaching and modeling the life of Jesus, our children and youth experience the fullness of a life formed and grounded in Christian faith.
