We have updated our Winter Worship plans. Click here for all the details!
At Grace, we believe that church isn’t a service or building. At its core, church is family. And although the pandemic has disrupted our normal church rhythms for the foreseeable future, we refuse to give up on our mission to live for God’s world, as God’s family, in the joy of God’s gospel. We believe that worshiping together is essential to living out our mission. Click here for all the details & registration!

Winter Sermon Series
2021 Winter Series: All Things New
New year (could we hope for something better than the previous year?), new opportunities, new practices--both as individuals and we as a community. What has God made new in Christ which, in saying so, is made to last, made to hold us even if all remains the same as it ever was? In whatever ways we pivot to new things--whether chosen or not--what are those things God has made new upon which all else rests?
Our Outdoor Sunday worship services currently being held at 11am in the main parking lot. We will continue to offer online worship services.
