Grace Evangelical Lutheran Church
Grace Evangelical Lutheran Church is located at 4300 16th Street NW. The congregational annual report from the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America--the governing body of most Lutheran congregations in the U.S.--lists Grace Church as being organized in 1876. Unfortunately, the congregation's website provides very little historical information, (though it does mention that the church was built in the 1920s) and most of its information is currently under construction.
Regardless, this is a lovely stone church in the Gothic style. An older, also scanty website provides a picture tour of the interior, which includes a beautiful three-pane set of stained glass windows above the church's altar. Services are available in English and Oromo--an Ethiopian language.
