Grace Lutheran Church was built in 1941, previously the congregation met in the Deuel County Courthouse. The church building was dedicated June 27, 1941. Grace Lutheran was yoked with Lodgepole Immanuel Lutheran church, which is now Gloria Dei. One pastor served both churches even though they were 10 miles apart. The ministers were as follows: Munnich, Victor, Moeller. The first marriage ceremony hed in the church was Dec. 28, 1944 of Kenny and Neva Schmid. After Moeller, students and retired pastors served Grace Lutheran. in 1946, Norman Schroeder came, followed by Schmidt, Meissner, Thiel, Mark and Farmer. A PMA program was started to assist the churches so they had a pastor. Bruce Freeman served Chappell and Judy Gifford served after Freeman. Grace was in the PMA program during the organization of the Tri-County Parish. We were then served by pastors Brenda and Keith Pfeifly, PMA Gifford and Fahnholz. After the formation of the Tri-County Parish, which included the congregations of Grace in Chappell, Berea south of Chappell, St. Mark’s in Oshkosh and Gloria Dei iin Lodgepole, Grace was served by Jack and Dawn Coffey, then Sarah Cordray, and Pastor Kathy Montira. In 2018 the 4 point parish dissolved, but the Tri County Parish continued with the congregations of Grace in Chappell and Gloria Dei in Lodgepole. Currently PMA Brenda Tophoj is serving the congregations.
