Amazing Grace Lutheran Church is a young vibrant congregation established by the The Florida-Georgia District LCMS. Plans for the new mission project first began in 2005. Pastor James Rockey was called in 2007. Our first worship service was held on November 11, 2007. For seven years, we worshiped in the Educational Annex of the First Baptist Church of Oxford, Florida.
In 2012 we purchased 10 acres of land for the future ministries of Amazing Grace. The property is on the north side of CR 472 (Rainey Trail), approximately 500 feet west of the new Promise Hospital. The location provides easy access for Village residents as well as the surrounding communities in and around Oxford, Summerfield and Wildwood. Ground-breaking for the new Worship Center was held in September, 2013, and construction was completed in August, 2014. Our first worship service in our new Ministry Center was held on September 7 and the Formal Dedication Service was held on November 9.
We have been blessed with steady growth and now have two worship services. Our 8:00 Traditional Worship Service furthers the rich legacy of traditional Lutheran worship with the singing of hymns. Our 10:15 Contemporary Worship Service, accented by modern praise & worship music, embraces life-giving Christian traditions—both ancient and modern.
In 2016 work began towards opening an Early Childhood Center Ministry. This will serve families with infants through age 5. Watch for more information on this amazing journey.
In late spring/early summer of 2017, the Memorial Gardens completed construction. Please contact the church for more information.
Groundbreaking ceremony for the Amazing Grace Early Learning Center (ELC) occurred at noon on October 15, 2017. Below are photos commemerating the event:
