NEW TO GRACE LUTHERAN?
Some seek out God and community when they feel they have lost their way, or are seeking a deeper purpose, or are looking for a way to connect to their family and cultural identity. But it is our belief that the Church, at its core, is about finding love and beauty through God and God’s work.
MEET OUR PASTOR & STAFF
Jennifer M. Kopacz
Prior to coming to Grace Lutheran, Pastor and her husband loved where they were in Pennsylvania, but she felt that the Holy Spirit was calling her to a new place, with new opportunities and new challenges. She considered calls to churches in many different places – from Upstate New York, to Washington State, and to Florida. But, in her interviews with the people of Grace, in conversations and in learning about one another, she felt that this was the place that she was being called to serve – this was the community she was being led to be a part of – to join with in carrying out their mission of welcoming all to the fellowship of Christ, serving the community, the Family of God, here at home, and around the world.
Grace Lutheran is so thankful to have Pastor Jennifer M. Kopacz as our faithful leader and we hope that many of you plan to come visit our church, meet her and our loving members and experience true “Grace”!
Director of Music
Anthony just loves music. In 2012, Anthony became the Music Director at Grace Lutheran Church. At that time, he was looking for more music that he could be a part of, that he could nurture, and grow. He feels that passion for music here at Grace. His position here allows him to share his passion in God’s house. He says, “I want to inspire and help everyone to sing the praises and hymns we have with one voice and offer that up to the Lord.”
Leslie came to Grace Lutheran Church in 2013 as the Director for the Chancel Choir. She also maintains the choral library and assists the music director with the children’s hand bell activities. Leslie is thrilled to be involved with a church that has such a deep love, appreciation, and commitment to music making.
Lisa D. Rubin
Church Office Administrator
Lisa says that she was drawn to work at Grace because, as a mother of young children, she needed to work in an environment that offered both a professional growth opportunity for me, while also honoring and understanding my role and responsibilities as a wife and mother. “I’ve been able to give my all to both my family and my job and appreciate that I’m valued and successful in both roles,” she says.
The Mission of Grace Lutheran Church is to invite and welcome all to the fellowship of Christ in service to our community.
We see our church not simply as a house of worship with walls, a roof and open doors. Rather, we believe that the church is actually the members and believers that come together to practice God’s word, celebrate His love and extend His gifts.
Through the Bible, service, worship and missions, we bring God closer to our hearts and closer to the hearts of those around us. From traditional sermons to attending our faith-based community initiatives or events — everything we do is based off of our commitment to spread the teachings of our Lord.
