Worship services are no longer held.

After 130 years of faithful witness to the community and to the world, Grace will be ending their ministry.  The last worship service will be on June 30, 2019.  In the following months decisions will be made in regards to the building and the contents.  Records will be taken to the ELCA Archives at Wartburg Seminary.  Donations are still appreciated during this time utilities are still needed and to address other closing costs. They may be sent to Grace Lutheran,  115 Main St., Ophiem, IL  61490.
