You are loved . . . be free
FREE TO . . .
Come without guilt
Come without shame
At Lord of Grace we believe that every one of us is loved by God, our creator, whoever we are and wherever we come from. We are loved without judgment, without condemnation, and are made in the image of our creator. Because we are loved by God, we are free to live life unburdened, without fear, in confidence and hope.
Lord of Grace is a member of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA). To learn more about the ELCA, who we are, what we do, and some of our core beliefs are, see here.
How it all got started
Lord of Grace was planted in 1995 to serve as a mission to the new development of Continental Ranch and the areas west of I-10. After an initial period of growth, we moved into Coyote Trail Elementary School, where we held worship for six years in the gym.
In 1981 the Lutheran Church in America purchased land at the intersection of Cortaro and Ina Roads, which at the time was mostly unpopulated. In 2001 construction began on a new building at this site, and in 2002 the new Lord of Grace building was dedicated.
Since then we have continued our outreach to the community, and have grown to include a membership that serves a greater area of NW Tucson and Marana.
After several more years of expansion a second worship service was added, so now we offer a liturgical Lutheran worship, with hymns accompanied by organ and piano, at 8:30am, and a contemporary worship, led by a praise band, at 10:30am.
You will find most of our members are a mix of life-long believers, retirees, young families with kids and several of us who are new to the faith.
