“For by grace you have been saved through faith.
And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God" (Ephesians 2:8)
Worship with Us
Let us come together in prayer and praise!
During the challenging Coronavirus (Covid-19) Pandemic:
We will be worshipping, meeting, studying, and supporting members and our community remotely. Check back often as we will be back to church soon! See our sermon transcriptions CLICK HERE
Life isn’t really full without the community of faith gathering for celebration, jubilation, and adoration!
Worship at Grace Lutheran Church expresses itself in both traditional and more contemporary styles. A variety of people share their musical gifts in leading worship. Worship doesn’t just happen on Sunday. Special services occur at Christmas, Holy Week and Easter.
All worship services at Grace are printed entirely in a worship folder. So, no fumbling through a hymnal to find and keep your place! Our typical worship schedule looks like this:
FIRST SUNDAY OF THE MONTH
Divine Service Four: a formal, traditional worship with organ accompaniment that includes spoken and sung responses, participation by the Praise Team and Grace Choir, a message by the Pastor and Holy Communion.
SECOND SUNDAY OF THE MONTH
With One Voice: Worship led by a worship team of piano, drums, lead guitar, and double bass. Also know as Student Sunday, the service includes students from our Campus Ministry outreach to Southern Oregon University serving as lay readers and worship assistants. The songs are a blend of traditional and newer Contemporary Christian music. This service also includes participation by student soloists and or instrumentalists, the Praise Team and Grace Choir, a message by the Pastor and Holy Communion.
THIRD SUNDAY OF THE MONTH
Jazz Mass: Worship led by a worship team of piano, drums, lead guitar, and double bass. The service uses a jazz setting of the Liturgy and the songs are a blend of traditional and newer Contemporary Christian music.

We are an active congregation involved in doing good works in the community.
The Mission & Ministry
This means being involved in what we do as a congregation, how we function as an organization with people taking specific responsibilities, i.e. Council Officers, Ministry Members and Volunteers, Ashland Emergency Food Bank. It means supporting our outreach to the community and the world through what we give and how we serve in Christ's name.
We also enjoy numerous Bible studies at Grace:
Choir & Band, Piano and Organ Music
We rehearse every Wednesday at 7 p.m. at the church. The choir is a magnificent way to frame your life by the Grace of God, versus by the cares of this world. Our choir is 25 voices strong, and we have a great choir director: Stu Turner, as well as our wonderful accompanist: Tatsiana Asheichyk.
Come fill your life with song! See you there!
At Grace, life in Christ starts at home and among friends. God meets us where we live and wherever two or three come together in His name to share in Christian community. For us, the point is not just “going to church,” but being church in our daily lives and everyday interactions with others.
During fellowship events we share life, tell stories, eat meals, pray, serve and grow together in Jesus Christ.
Fellowship events express who we are as Christians and therefore we take time to worship, pray, laugh, reflect on scripture, and play, because that’s what Christians do…without these things (worship, prayer, scripture reflection, and more) we have a club, but not a church. Please join us for our next fellowship gathering!
