Grace Lutheran welcomes new pastor

SOMERS POINT — The congregation of Grace Lutheran Church enjoyed a celebration on Sunday, Sept. 12, as the Rev. Althea Albright was officially installed as the new pastor. Albright came to Grace Lutheran nearly a year ago, but like so many events, the installation by the bishop in front of the congregation was delayed due to COVID-19. The Sunday morning regular 10:15 a.m. service was highlighted with Albright’s installation. Bishop Tracie Bartholomew of the New Jersey Synod led the installation. For the congregation as well as Bishop Bartholomew, being together at Grace Lutheran is a special time.
