Men, Women, Children, and Group Sessions

 

Here at Grace Lutheran, we have separate programs designed specifically for each group. We have programs for men, women, children and teenagers, and small group sessions as well, with everybody included.

The Men of Grace meet Thursday mornings at the Braum’s in Sherman at 6:30 a.m. for Breakfast and a Bible Study/devotion time.  Besides discussing current events, we look for service projects both at Grace and in our communities. We recognize that we have been saved by God’s Grace and want to extend a helping hand to others.

Men of all ages are invited to take part in our meetings and projects.

We offer assistance to the widows and older members of our congregation and community who might need help with small projects around the house. If you have a need or know of someone who does, call the church office!

Thrivent Financial, as part of their “Summer of Impact” campaign, is giving each member who logs in to their online account $50 to designate to their favorite charity! This is in addition to any other Choice Dollars you may have accumulated.  You can designate this to go to any charity: Grace, LWML, LOMT/Camp Lone Star, or a host of other choices! The deadline is August 31, or whenever they run out of the 8 million Choice Dollars they have designated for this effort.

All you have to do is log in to your Thrivent online account and designate the Choice Dollars however you wish. You can divide it between mulitple charities if you wish. If you designate the monies to Grace and  want them to be used for something special, please let us know.
