Our History

Grace Lutheran Church, a congregation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA), was organized in February 1952 by Lutheran families living in Lockhart. The congregation built its first white frame church in 1956 and a second larger church in 1972. The original building housed Grace Lutheran Preschool until a new preschool building was built on its site in 2015; the second building continues to serve as the parish hall. A new limestone church was built and dedicated in March 1999.

Our Congregation

Our members come from not only Lockhart, but also from Austin, Dale, Maxwell, Red Rock, Lytton Springs, Kyle and surrounding areas. We worship on Sundays and midweek during the seasons of Lent and Advent, and provide other educational opportunities. We have an active chapter of the Women of the ELCA, which hosts monthly Bible studies and other activities. Youth have regular instruction as well as opportunities for fun, fellowship and service to the community.

Grace members participate in many community activities, and they engage in Christian social action through the Lockhart Ministerial Alliance and the Caldwell County Christian Ministries. Through our women’s group, we also support the Hays-Caldwell County Women’s Shelter.

Although we come from many communities and have many interests, we are united by our faith in God through Jesus Christ. If you are not a member of another church, we invite you to join with us.
