Grace Lutheran Church West Springfield turns 60!

Grace Lutheran Church West Springfield celebrates is 60th anniversary this year! We’ve come a long way (figuratively, not literally!) since our humble beginnings in a makeshift chapel in a small house on the corner of Westfield St. and Woodmont St. An excerpt from our History page:

Our first service was held March 1, 1953. We had 180 persons in attendance with only seating for 80, so we used the apartment upstairs, coatrooms, kitchen and all available space. During 1953 we had our first Vacation Bible School, Adult Bible Class and Adult Membership Class, Sunday School with 22 enrolled and our first Baptism.

Stay tuned for plans to celebrate this momentous anniversary this year.
