Thanks to the vision and desire for continued ministry, Grace Lutheran Church (Bellevue), gave the synod council a percentage of their proceeds when they closed their ministry in 2019. The synod council, in turn, is investing this money in congregations and ministry sites who are doing faithful innovation via Grace Grants. This year, 2023, will be our final distribution year.
