Grace Lutheran Church was started in 2013 as a mission Church in Lincoln, IL. Rev. Daniel McQuality was installed as our Pastor on Oct. 20, 2013 and our first regular Service was on Reformation Sunday, Oct. 27. On July 1, 2014 we acquired the former Maple Club building in Lincoln and worshipped there for 3 great years. In 2017, the Lord blessed us abundantly with our permanent building at 201 S. College Street. It is an exciting time to be part of our new and growing Congregation!
Come grow with us!
Rev. Daniel McQuality is blessed to be married to his wife, Rachel. Together they have 6 children and a Basset hound who fill their lives with joy and perpetual excitement!
