Endowment Fund

The Grace Endowment Fund supports programs and projects that enhance the Mission Outreach of Grace Lutheran Church and School. It is intended to be a funding source to directly benefit projects that the Church typically cannot fund through its annual operating budget. This allows us to accomplish projects in keeping with our mission and ministries that may not otherwise be possible.

More information on the Endowment Fund coming soon.

Policy Based Governance

In early 2019, Grace Lutheran Church decided to explore a new governance model, Policy Based Governance (PBG).  Changes in staffing, insight from outside consultants, and internal analysis were three factors that urged Grace toward this exploration.  A new senior pastor with experience in transitioning governance models and working within PBG served as a catalyst to move from exploring PBG to implementing this at Grace in 2021.  In this process, Grace learned from and utilized many other congregations, organizations, and individual Christians.  We, therefore, offer these resources to other congregations considering a change in governance models.  You are invited to use us as a resource if your ministry is deliberating a change.
