Greetings, in the name of the Lord,

Iíd like to take a moment to introduce myself to you. First, I find that "Pastor Hetherington" is quite a mouthful, so most people call me "Pastor Dale." I was installed as the shepherd of the flock here at Grace on July 29, 2018.

I was raised in the Evangelical Friends Church (Quaker to most people), spent time in the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), and for 20 years was a pastor in the American Baptist Churches USA. As to how I got here, thatís a story that would take more space than I am allotted.

Suffice it to say that in 2003-2004 at an American Baptist seminary, I was introduced to the Ancient Church. I found comfort in the ancient liturgy, a sense of spirituality in the lectionary and calendar, truth in the creeds, and solid teaching in the church fathers. What I didnít know at the time was that I could find these in the Lutheran Church. When I finally accepted as truth the real presence of the body and blood of Christ in, with, and under the bread and wine, I had become a Lutheran without knowing it.

It is my pleasure to share with others what I have learned are the three distinctives of the Lutheran faith:

The Foundation of Sola Scriptura
The Bible is our sole authority.

The Pillar of the Church -
Sola Gratia, Sola Fide, Solus Christus

We are saved by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone.

The Protective Dome - the Means of Grace Word and Sacrament

If youíre looking for a deeper walk with God, this is the place to be!
