"You have been saved by

God's gift of grace in Christ; 

not your own doing."

(paraphrased Eph 2:8-9)



Since 1894, Grace Lutheran Church of Lily Lake has been a center of worship and making a difference in people’s lives. It is people growing together to make a difference with our lives, confident that Jesus is using us to be the people of God in this world. Grace has a long proud history of involvement in the community and world. Boy & Girl Scouts, Election Polling Site, and many other community groups utilize the building and property of Grace. We are also active and support in many community and worldwide ministries.  Grace welcomes you.

Latest NewsLetters at Grace


From the desk of Pastor David, June, 2023

A few years ago, a friend of mine suggested that the world had lost its mind. Given the chaos, the tribalism, the vitriol, the perversions, the rage, the disillusionment, and the anxiety of today, I suspect he would double-down on his assessment. And it’s hard not to agree.

But putting things into perspective, the world has always been engulfed in such things. How different is Covid 2020 with the Bubonic Plagues of the 14th century? Aren’t the hooligans tormenting every major city center today just an iteration of the Fascist Black Shirts under Mussolini in the period leading up to WWII? Do we really value human life these days any more than the ancient civilizations who practiced human sacrifice in the name of religion? The more things change…

This is why I love being at Grace. In addition to the natural beauty of the surrounding countryside, the congregation is an oasis of peace, calm, joy, and love. A community who looks upward and outward has tranquility inward. Continue to pray that more of our neighbors will join us to experience God’s love

Blessings to you all,  
Pastor David
