    Grace Lutheran Church in Ashland

    Fellowship and Friends

    People of all ages and varied backgrounds come together to experience God’s amazing grace. Grace Lutheran strives to be a welcoming place for people from differing backgrounds and various ages.


    Grace is a small church with a big heart. Everyone is encouraged to participate in the efforts of the church which bring the love of Christ into our community and world. We exist in order to grow in faith and share Christ’s love, not only with our own members but with the community and in the world. Everything that we are and do as a church is a means of delivering His message of love and redemption.

  • Worship with Us

    Let us come together in prayer and praise!

    Sunday Worship

    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:



    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.


    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.

    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:

    • Weekly women’s Bible study Tuesday's at 10:00am in the Fireside Room
    • Monthly Campus & Young Adult Bible study second Sunday at 11:30am TBA
    • Men’s monthly breakfast Bible study second Saturday at 8:00am-sanctuary
    • Monthly LWML Bible study 3rd Tuesday at 1:00pm in Fireside Room
    • Monthly off site retirement residence Bible study 2nd Thursday 2:00pm at Maple Ridge Retirement - Ashland

    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!

    There are various ways people can become Members:

    • You can "Transfer" if you had a previous church and ask them to transfer your membership.  If you need assistance, our office staff can help.
    • If your membership has lapsed, you can be received by "Affirmation of Faith". Talk to the Pastor about that.
    • If you are joining with a different background in a different denomination or with no church background, talk to the Pastor about a "Church Membership Class".  The key ingredients of Lutheran Christianity are covered.
    • You will be publicly received on a Sunday morning, and introduced to the congregation. If we can assist in this process talk to the pastor or office staff.
