Welcome to the website of Grace Lutheran Church in Tallahassee.  Our mission is to
invite and welcome all to the fellowship of Jesus Christ in service to our community.

During the summer, we're providing an opportunity for our entire congregational family
to worship together at a single service Sunday mornings at 9:30 am.  Everyone is
invited to enjoy fellowship, snacks and refreshments immediately following our worship
service in our Fellowship Hall.

There is no Sunday School during the summer but we have many other opportunities
for learning and fellowship.  Please check our Church Calendar for details about our
many activities throughout the summer.

We will return to two worship services and resume Sunday School on Rally Day, August
24.

                                         WORSHIP ASSISTANTS REMINDER FOR JULY 20, 2014

First Reading: Isaiah 44:6-8  

Thus says the Lord, the King of Israel
and his Redeemer, the Lord of hosts:
I am the first and I am the last;
besides me there is no god.
Who is like me? Let them proclaim it,
let them declare and set it forth before me.
Who has announced from of old the things to come?
Let them tell us what is yet to be.
Do not fear, or be afraid;
have I not told you from of old and declared it?
You are my witnesses!
Is there any god besides me?
There is no other rock; I know not one.

Psalm 86:11-17

Second Reading: Romans 8:12-15

So then, brothers and sisters, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live according to the flesh- for if you live according to
the flesh, you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live. For all who are led by the
Spirit of God are children of God. For you did not receive a spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you have received
a spirit of adoption. When we cry, 'Abba! Father!' it is that very Spirit bearing witness with our spirit that we are children
of God, and if children, then heirs, heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ-if, in fact, we suffer with him so that we may
also be glorified with him.

I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory about to be revealed to us.
For the creation waits with eager longing for the revealing of the children of God; for the creation was subjected to
futility, not of its own will but by the will of the one who subjected it, in hope that the creation itself will be set free from
its bondage to decay and will obtain the freedom of the glory of the children of God. We know that the whole creation
has been groaning in labour pains until now; and not only the creation, but we ourselves, who have the first fruits of
the Spirit, groan inwardly while we wait for adoption, the redemption of our bodies. For in hope we were saved. Now
hope that is seen is not hope. For who hopes for what is seen? But if we hope for what we do not see, we wait for it
with patience.
BLOOD DRIVE is Sunday, July 20 from 9am-1pm at Grace Lutheran Church. Sign up in Fellowship Hall or contact
