Adults

Grace Lutheran Church in Hutchinson, Minnesota offers several different programs for adults. Here are some of the offerings.

Bible Study

Grace offers several opportunities for adults to continue to grow in the wonderful truths of God’s Word. Sessions take place at 8 a.m. Sunday morning, and at 2 and 7 p.m. Tuesday. Topics range from study of individual books of the Bible to discussions of how the Bible addresses contemporary issues. For example, a recent multi-part series explored the question: “What Would you Like to Ask God?”  Click here to access our online bible studies.

Choir

Psalm 100 proclaims: “Worship the Lord with gladness; come before him with joyful songs.” Grace’s adult choir participates in worship services from September through May and is open to all confirmed members.

Women’s Circle

This group, open to all women, meets monthly except during the summer. Its purpose is to promote and support the congregation’s service committees as well as the world missions of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod. Meetings typically begin with a Bible study and continue with a variety of activities, such as a November Holiday Tea, organizing Lenten suppers, attendance at spring and fall rallies, and serving at various church functions.

Young Adults

Don’t let the name fool you. This group is open to any adult who’s young at heart. Christian fellowship is its sole purpose. Activities include Game Night, bowling, tours of well-known landmarks, restaurant visits and similar outings.

OWLS

Grace has its own chapter of the Organization of Wisconsin Lutheran Seniors, which is open to all members age 50 or older. The group meets monthly for devotion, followed by fellowship activities such as a meal, dominos and other games.

Jesus Cares Ministry

Grace offers a program that reaches out to people with developmental disabilities. The group meets at 6:30 p.m. on the first and third Mondays of the month in September through December, and March through May. The one-hour session features opening and closing devotions, Bible story, crafts, games, singing — and everyone goes home with a snack.

Other Fellowship Opportunities

If you’ve lived in Hutchinson for a while, you might have already learned about Grace, thanks to our annual National Night Out Party, which attracts nearly 500 people on the first Tuesday in August. We also put on an autumn hay ride/bonfire. And we offer a variety of community outreach opportunities, such as our annual Reality Easter program, which re-enacts the story of Christ’s resurrection.
