We are changing how we publish the Grace/WELS News & Notes on the website.  Instead of being updated on Saturdays, I will put the information in on Sunday evening or Monday.  It will still be the same information that is available at church on Sunday.   Sometimes, there is information that Pastor would like to share with the congregation before it is available to the everyone.  Thank you for understanding.

Besides the News & Notes area, check for items added in the following areas:
