About You  ==>

Grace's nave, education building, narthex and connecting  hallways were destroyed by fire on the night of May 18, 2015.

We do not know our future but God does and He has a plan for our  good. A building is NOT a church; God's people are the church, His church. God is our strength!

Please pray for the people of Grace Luthean Church of Vestal. God is our Help and your prayers will uplift us in this time of testing.

God says in Jeremiah 29:11-12  "For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.  Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will hear you. He has and does!

With God's help and direction, we are coping with our new situation. We are planning, with His help, for the future. It's a long process, of many months and perhaps years - a long time before Grace will again have a new church facility. In the meantime, we continue to worship our great and gracious God - anywhere, any time, always!

We now have some concept drawings, which continue to be refined as architect and contractor work with us in this lengthy process.

We ask your prayers. Come worship with us any Sunday morning at 9 AM. God is good and we praise Him, no matter what!

As a part of our 'rebuild', we have been back to the  fundamentals: Why are we here? What does God want us to do? See the Mission and Vision page to see our new understanding.

Grace will have a Groundbreaking Celebration on   December 4, 2016 at 1 PM. The location is the      same location as before: 709 Main Street. Come   join us in Celebration!  I hope to post a video of    this celebration sometime in December. Later,      other videos should be available at 'New Building' on the left menu, as building progresses, leading to a a dedication video sometime in 2017.

CLICK 'NEW BUILDING' ON THE LEFT MENU TO SEE MORE INFORMATION. This is not always the latest. but will give more information.

 

Praise be to God!!!!

The Rev. Dr. Andrew Watkins accepted God's and Grace's call to be our new pastor.

He was installed on November 14, 2015. Praise God!

The installation worship service was at Zion Lutheran Church in Owego, NY, because of the destruction of our church facilities by fire; see the left red column for more info.
