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.

First Reading: 1 Kings 3:5-12

At Gibeon the Lord appeared to Solomon in a dream by night; and God said, 'Ask what I should give you.' And
Solomon said, 'You have shown great and steadfast love to your servant my father David, because he walked before
you in faithfulness, in righteousness, and in uprightness of heart towards you; and you have kept for him this great
and steadfast love, and have given him a son to sit on his throne today. And now, O Lord my God, you have made
your servant king in place of my father David, although I am only a little child; I do not know how to go out or come in.
And your servant is in the midst of the people whom you have chosen, a great people, so numerous they cannot be
numbered or counted. Give your servant therefore an understanding mind to govern your people, able to discern
between good and evil; for who can govern this your great people?'

It pleased the Lord that Solomon had asked this. God said to him, 'Because you have asked this, and have not asked
for yourself long life or riches, or for the life of your enemies, but have asked for yourself understanding to discern
what is right, I now do according to your word. Indeed I give you a wise and discerning mind; no one like you has been
before you and no one like you shall arise after you.


Psalm 119:120-136  

Second Reading: Romans 8:26-39

the Spirit helps us in our weakness; for we do not know how to pray as we ought, but that very Spirit intercedes with
sighs too deep for words. And God, who searches the heart, knows what is the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit
intercedes for the saints according to the will of God.

We know that all things work together for good for those who love God, who are called according to his purpose. For
those whom he foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, in order that he might be the
firstborn within a large family. And those whom he predestined he also called; and those whom he called he also
justified; and those whom he justified he also glorified.

What then are we to say about these things? If God is for us, who is against us? He who did not withhold his own Son,
but gave him up for all of us, will he not with him also give us everything else? Who will bring any charge against God's
elect? It is God who justifies. Who is to condemn? It is Christ Jesus, who died, yes, who was raised, who is at the right
hand of God, who indeed intercedes for us. Who will separate us from the love of Christ? Will hardship, or distress, or
persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? As it is written,

'For your sake we are being killed all day long;
  we are accounted as sheep to be slaughtered.'

No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death,
nor life, nor angels, nor rulers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor anything
else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.
