Who We Are

Grace Church is a gospel-centered church that seeks to live in community, on mission to make disciples. We believe everything is about Jesus. Our vision is to make disciples to the glory of God. We do this through proclaiming the gospel in all things, building authentic friendships, and being on mission to speak the gospel to others who don't know Jesus.

Our Services

What are services like?
In our services we respond to who Jesus is and what he has done for us through singing, hearing from the Bible, and taking communion weekly. In all of this we want to lift up and worship Jesus. We love God's Word and preach through books of the Bible. We value music and seek to sing songs with real depth in creative, relevant ways. We take communion weekly as a way to remember the death of Jesus for our sins. Our services are casual. Come as you are. As long as you are clothed.

What is the community like?
Community is one of our core values. We do not over-program ourselves. We drive home the value of being in a small group. We call small groups "community groups." You can learn more about them here: They are groups of 6-12 people that meet weekly to build authentic friendships with one another. In a community group you will spend time reviewing the sermon and applying it to your life. You will also spend time praying for one another and for those you are reaching out to with the gospel.

What if I'm not a Christian?
We would love to meet you. We welcome and invite non-Christians to attend everything we do. Feel free to visit our small group page and check out a small group (
