What should I expect when I come to Grace?

At Grace you’ll see all ages of people from a variety of backgrounds brought together by one mission: Love Him, love others. We typically spend the first 20 minutes or so singing contemporary worship songs (so be ready for electric guitars, drums, and bass). Usually, we then have a few announcements and an offering. After that, Karl will give a practical and inspiring teaching centered on the Bible. The sermons usually lasts about 30 minutes and the whole service almost always stays within 1 hour and 15 minutes.

What should I wear?

It really doesn’t matter to us as long as the basics are covered. You’ll find many people in jeans and shorts, a number in dresses and dockers, and every once in a while you’ll spot a tie. You might feel a little out of place if you wear a evening gown or suit. We hope you don’t, but you could also feel a little out of place if your clothes are immodest or really ragged. But we believe Christ is primarily concerned with your heart–not your clothes. And we want to be like Him.

How do I become a member of Grace?

We don’t really have an official membership at Grace. If you’re interested in learning more of what Grace is all about and if you want to call it your church home, ask Calvin about our next Grace 101. Karl leads Grace 101 about every quarter where he shares our vision and values then a meal with you. The best way to really dive into the life of Grace is by joining a Life Group.

What does Grace believe about the Bible?

We believe that the Bible is the inspired Word of God: true, immutable, steadfast, and unchangeable (2 Timothy 3:16, 17). That’s a fancy way of saying that we hold the Bible in high regard and we believe it’s the final authority in our lives.

What should I do with my kids?

Bring them along! We believe children’s ministry is just as important as any other part of our worship service. We offer fun and relevant children’s ministry programming at our services for preschool through 7th grade. We also have a staffed nursery, as well as a cry room for parents of young children.

What about my teenagers?

Bring them too! We think they’ll get a lot out of our Sunday worship services, and we have an awesome youth ministry that meets during the week.

How do I get involved at Grace?

We are so eager to see you make vital relationships, use your gifts for God’s glory, grow closer to Jesus, and to thrive at Grace Community. We can’t say enough about the power of Life Groups in helping us connect with one another and Christ. If you want to start a ministry, we’ll likely start by asking if you’re in a Life Group. We want to make sure that you are growing and cared for as you lead others. There are opportunities to serve in almost every ministry. You can start by clicking here and telling us which ministry you’re interested in. Or check out our online Life Group directory. You can also visit others from Grace on Facebook. If you visit Facebook, just be aware that we can’t control what anyone says or does there-whether or not they attend Grace.
