Thanksgiving Eve Service & Organ Concert

We usually have a joint Thanksgiving Eve Service with Heidelberg UCC.  This year we decided to jointly plan a virtual service.  it can be found at https://gracelutheranhatfield.org/worship-and-music/audiovideo/ .  Following the 38 minute service as part of the same video there is an Organ Concert which you may also enjoy.    

Warming Center

Over the years, the Hatfield area has been subject to numerous power outages.  These outages have grown more frequent, due in part to the numerous aging trees effected by the weather.  Power can be out for a few hours or in some instances a week. It can occur during the dead of winter, a hurricane or even during the summer when temperatures…

We do understand that 2/3rds of members earlier polled expressed…

Ordination of Women – 50th Anniversary

Today Marks 50 Years! From Presiding Bishop Eaton: Fifty years ago, on June 29, 1970, the Lutheran Church in America voted to change the word “man” to “person” in its bylaws and opened the door for the ordination of women. The church was led by the Spirit to change. Fifty years later we celebrate the anniversary as a whole church. In recognition…

Feeding and Being Fed

A member of Grace who has been making sandwiches remarked on how important it has been for her to have something to do in these weeks.  She has food and shelter and everything she and her family need.  She’s discovered that by responding to the basic need of providing food for someone who does not know where his or her next meal…
