ABOUT OUR PASTOR
Pastor Lewis Groce is a native of Greenville, S.C., who earned his bachelor’s degree at Newberry College and his Master of Divinity degree from Lutheran Theological Southern Seminary. He has been a pastor for more than 30 years.
Before accepting the call in Hendersonville, he served churches in Clinton, S.C., Galveston and Mason, Texas, and Tullahoma, Tennessee.
Pastor Groce has served on various boards and committees for the Southeastern Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, including chairing the Candidacy Committee (which prepares men and women for rostered service in the Church). Presently, he serves as Vice President of the Sumner County Recovery Court Foundation Board, is a volunteer chaplain at Hendersonville Medical Center, and is on the Lutheran Theological Southern Seminary Advisory Council.
We love Pastor Groce for his humor, humility and compassion, but most of all for his faithfulness to the Word of God.
ABOUT OUR CHURCH
A member of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA), St. Timothy Lutheran Church was formed in 1965 by a group of Hendersonville families who dreamed of establishing the first Lutheran Church on the north side of Nashville. We are a congregation that truly welcomes all people seeking God — and for us, all means all.
