Grace Lutheran Church is a community of believers led in faith and prayer by Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit, committed to loving witness in service to God.
At Grace Lutheran Church, we strive to be a community of acceptance, reconciliation and hope. Following in the way of Jesus, we welcome all people regardless of race, ethnicity, nationality, sexual orientation, gender identity or age. God’s acceptance of all compels us to stand against racism, sexism and all forms of hate and prejudice. We welcome your questions, your gifts, and your being.
Grace Evangelical Lutheran Church has been in the Champaign area since approximately 200 University of Illinois students saw a need for an English speaking Lutheran church in the community in 1911. Grace has been in its current location on the corner of Springfield and Prospect since 1964. Grace is a part of the Evangelical Lutheran Chuch in America (ELCA).
