Raise Right Orders are due THIS Sunday! Please visit to place your order or download the RaiseRight app to your phone. If you’re not yet enrolled in Raise Right we would LOVE to have you participate. It is a fundraising program based on the sale of gift cards. You purchase them as face value through Raise Right and Grace receives a predesignated percentage of your purchases. Nearly everything you can think of is available for purchase. Some popular ones are Target, Starbucks, Kwik Trip, Piggly Wiggly, Meijer, Sendicks, Home Depot, this list goes on and on. They make great teacher gifts and stocking stuffers and some are even reloadable online so you can fill up a card for a college kid that’s away from home. To sign up to fundraise for Grace just use the enrollment code B7BAC4F663645. I place the order the third Sunday of every month and the cards will be available for pick up the following Sunday. 

Please contact Chantal Murack at or 802-309-5081 with any questions. 



The Grace softball team has begun their season, and they'd love to have fans cheering them on! Here's the schedule for anybody who wants to check out any games!

Grace Lutheran Church Financial Summary
We as a Church Council have decided in the spirit of continuous improvement and transparency to the congregation to begin publishing a summary of the church's financials on a monthly basis. We feel this is in everyone's best interest to be transparent and aligned upon the financial health of the church.

In these monthly reports, we will include:
  1. Income & Expense Results from the Most Recent Month
  2. Income & Expense Results on a Year-To-Date basis
  3. A Summary of Cash Balances
  4. A Summary of Debt Balances
  5. A Summary of Year-To-Date Giving vs. Prior Periods

We welcome any feedback or suggestions as we continue to find the best ways to engage with the congregation.
