Worship and Bible Class
Ascension Celebration—Celebrate world missions and Ascension Day this Thursday, May 26, beginning at 6 p.m. in the Grace Center. Prof. Jon Bare, who serves on the faculty at Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary as chairman of our synod’s Pastoral Studies Institute (PSI) will give a guest presentation. The PSI program trains men for leadership in various world mission fields, with the goal of ordination into pastoral ministry in their native countries.

RSVP to the church office, 414-271-3006 or to Carolyn at email@example.com.
Living by Faith Alone: Sunday Morning Bible Class—Life isn’t easy—in fact, sometimes it’s just plain hard. There are problems and challenges all around us and even in us. No matter how hard we try, we are left feeling empty and without purpose. But the good news of free and full forgiveness offers a different way of life. Join Grace Church for this Sunday morning Bible class and explore the core teaching of the Christian faith found in the book of Galatians—justification by faith—and see how you can live by faith alone. Sunday morning Bible class is offered at 9 and 10:15 a.m. in the Grace Center’s Great Hall, along with tasty treats, juice, and coffee.
Babysitting Fundraiser—Craving a date night out? On Saturday, June 11, Grace Teens going to the Youth Rally are hosting a babysitting fundraiser from 4 p.m.-8 p.m. at Grace! Younger children will be in the nursery and the older kids will be in the Heritage Room with a movie and other activities. A meal of chicken nuggets, applesauce, and veggies will be provided. This fundraiser will rely on freewill donations that will be split between the teens to lessen the cost of attending the Youth Rally.
