Grace Lutheran Church hosts FREE Monthly Community Dinners on the fourth Saturday of the month (see above for exceptions). The Community Dinner is a delicious and nutritious meal serving 60 – 100 people each month, prepared by volunteers from our congregation along with other valued partners, including:

  • Local and regional churches
  • Community groups
  • Family and friendship groups looking for service projects

The Dinner brings together groups of folks who may not otherwise interact with one another: youth and elderly, new residents and the homeless, singles and families, the poor and the well-off all dine together. Please join us! If you or a group of friends are interested in helping with the dinner, contact Jan McGuire at 612-788-2444.
