Mission Statement

God's purpose for Grace Lutheran Church is:

Welcome to Grace, Welcome the message.

Our Principle Values:

Jesus is Lord.
Everyone is welcome.
All serve in different ways.
Seek and share the Message!


Grace Lutheran heartily welcomes ALL who wish to worship.

We are a congregation of the Southwestern Texas Synod of the ELCA (Evangelical Lutheran Church in America).  Whether you are a valley resident or a Winter Texan we heartily welcome you.  For those searching for a church home we would welcome you to become a member of our congregation.

The Vision of the ELCA...

Claimed by God’s grace for the sake of the world, we are a new creation through God’s living word by the power of the Holy Spirit;

Gathered by God’s grace for the sake of the world, we will live among God’s faithful people, hear God’s word and share Christ’s supper;

Sent by God’s grace for the sake of the world, we will proclaim the good news of God in Christ through word and deed, serve all people following the example of our Lord Jesus, and strive for justice and peace in all the world.

A little history of Grace...

August 23, 1925...

The initial Lutheran Congregation here in Harlingen was started. By June of 1933 we were located at 4th and Jackson. From 1950 to 1969 our church was in "The Barracks" located at our present location of 10th and Jackson and in 1969 the building of the church as we know it today was begun.

Secretary Suzanne

Faith is a living, daring confidence in God's grace, so sure and certain that a man could stake his life on it a thousand times.

                            Martin Luther

Anyone who is to find Christ must first find the church. How could anyone know where Christ is and what faith is in him unless he knew where his believers are?

                            Martin Luther

If he have faith, the believer cannot be restrained. He betrays himself. He breaks out. He confesses and teaches this gospel to the people at the risk of life itself.
