Our Mission Statement:
Because we are unconditionally loved by God, we are called to do the same in thought, word, and deed with our family, community and world.
We are children and servants of God. We believe that we have received salvation through the grace of God and Jesus Christ. We are guided in our thoughts, prayers, and actions by: the Bible, the Holy Spirit who dwells within each of us, and our Church’s (PCUSA) traditions.
We develop our faith through worship, prayer, and Christian Education. This prepares us for local and global missions, community involvement, and spreading God’s good news to others. We are strengthened in our service to God through the support and fellowship of the Christian family of Grace Presbyterian Church. All people are welcome and encouraged to join our church family.
We’re Here to Help:
Our service to Jesus begins with taking care of ourselves (six deacons care for shut-ins, the sick, and the distressed), but we also reach out to the community. An active prayer chain brings many issues before God in prayer. We also reach out with volunteer help to various community organizations. Our mission dollars are currently distributed among the following: Winona Volunteer Services, Women’s Resource Center, Winona Hospice Coalition, Home Share (SEMCAC), DARE, and our denominational missions (Theological Education Fund, General Assembly Synod, Presbytery, One Great Hour of Sharing, Peacemaking Fund, Christmas Joy Offering). Other mission organizations receive funds from time to time as various needs arise.
We’re Here for The Long Haul:
In 1952, Grace Presbyterian Church was formed through the merger of two churches: an English-speaking Presbyterian church established in 1856 and a predominantly German Presbyterian church established in 1864. As a member of the Presbyterian Church U.S.A., we have solid traditions, doctrines, and support which tie us to the larger Body of Christ. Our congregation of approximately 100 adult members is committed to serving our Lord and one another. Other leaders of the church serve on a strictly volunteer basis, and their services are always done in the name of our Lord, Jesus Christ.
