Grace Evangelical Lutheran Church began as a Sunday class in 1914 and became an official congregation on October 10, 1915. Faith-formation remains a strong focus of our many ministries, along with children’s, youth, and outreach ministries. Responding to space restraints, we purchased 35 acres of land in 1995, built a new facility, and moved our congregation one mile to the west on Sunday, September 26, 1999. We are located at 1801 Saint Paris Pike, about 1 miles from Wittenberg University. Most weeks throughout the year we offer worship at 7:00 p.m. on Thursday evenings, while our Sunday morning schedule includes 8:00 and 10:45 a.m. worship, with Sunday school for all ages from 9:15-10:15 a.m. We are serving our Savior by the leadership of Senior Pastor, Daniel M. Powell and Associate Pastor, Beverly DeBord, a committed and competent staff and Church Council, and some 1100 baptized members! We disaffiliated with the ELCA and became a charter congregation of the North American Lutheran Church with our second vote in January 2011.

Resurrection Lutheran Church, MISSION START
Wooster, Ohio 44691  330-345-5473
Contact Person: Fred Seling fseling@gmail.com
Resurrection is a house church seeking to develop disciples of Jesus Christ. We worship in the "non-traditional" setting of members houses. Although, if you read Acts, perhaps our setting is more traditional. Something to think about. We worship weekly at 9;30 a.m. followed with a time of study. We are currently worshipping at 2424 Daybreak Dr, Wooster, but this may change as we sometimes shift the service to other homes. We do not have a local pastor, but we receive guidance, support and accountability from two pastors of the LifeTogether Churches network (www.lifetogether.com).
We have been worshipping in this type of setting since September 2010 and we have all had a great growth in our faith and our relationship with Jesus and each other. We also gather weekly for 1 on 1 study, prayer, and support sessions. With the support of an area NALC pastor, we are having worship in a public setting on the last Saturday or Sunday evening of the month. Please contact us for the time and location of these services or for any other information. We would be happy to have you join with us in our faith journeys and discipleship training.
