"You have been saved by

God's gift of grace in Christ; 

not your own doing."

(paraphrased Eph 2:8-9)



Since 1894, Grace Lutheran Church of Lily Lake has been a center of worship and making a difference in people’s lives. It is people growing together to make a difference with our lives, confident that Jesus is using us to be the people of God in this world. Grace has a long proud history of involvement in the community and world. Boy & Girl Scouts, Election Polling Site, and many other community groups utilize the building and property of Grace. We are also active and support in many community and worldwide ministries.  Grace welcomes you.

Latest NewsLetters at Grace


From the desk of Pastor David, October 2022

Dear Beloved,

We certainly live in strange and discouraging times. Every day, our traditional values and our Christian world view are coming under attack and ridiculed by an increasingly humanistic and angry world. The same social media that was promised to unite society into supportive communities has in fact isolated it into tribal pools of vitriol.

The reason I mention this is to remind us how important it is to stay active and involved in our Grace community. As Jesus tells us, he is the true vine; we are the branches. Attend our weekly Sunday service consistently; join the established groups that meet regularly outside our worship such as Rebecca Circle; jump into volunteer opportunities like the Food Bank volunteer days; attend and support our special events like the bi-annual Rummage Sale; invite your neighbor or co-worker to church; let young families know about our Sunday School program that teaches Godly principles.

Why are these important? I leave you with this quote from the writer of Hebrews:
And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds,
not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging
one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.

Blessings to you,
                        Pastor David
