Engage at Grace

Serving In Our Church

There are many ways to serve within our own congregation. Whether you have a heart to counsel others or you have the hands to do repairs, there is a place for everyone to serve. See some of the opportunities to serve at Grace below.





Stephen Ministers are trained to help people navigate a time of crisis with emotional and spiritual support. Job loss, grief, caring for a loved one with dementia, and many other challenges like these can leave people feeling alone and wondering if anyone cares. Stephen Ministers care and are there to listen and to help at these critical transitional times.

The A.C.T.S. (Actively Caring, Tenderly Serving) ministry team is a ministry of Grace Lutheran that focuses on the individual needs of our Grace Lutheran community. We have volunteers who provide support in various areas, including:

  • Making home visits.
  • Sending cards.
  • Checking in by phone.
  • Assisting with errands or giving rides for medical appointments.

To volunteer with A.C.T.S. or to request support, email ACTS@gracelutheran-hsv.org.

A facility like Grace is often in need of some TLC. Big Ed’s Work Crew meets on Tuesday evenings at Grace to install what is new, fix what is broken, and go out for pizza at Big Ed’s when the work is complete. This crew does not limit themselves to work at the Grace campus. They can sometimes be found taking on a project for someone in our community who just needs a helping hand.
