We know that visiting a new church can feel intimidating. But whether you are 20 or 70, single or married, a family with young children or grown children, we have something for everyone.
Here are answers to a few questions that should help make your first visit as easy and comfortable as possible.
When should I arrive?
Traditional Worship: Sunday 8:00AM
Relationships are foundational here, so we recommend coming 10 minutes before the start of the service to get to know others over a cup of coffee. Services typically last 60 minutes. Many stay after worship for additional fellowship and perhaps to grab a muffin (or two). We understand that people are busy, but we also greatly desire to spend time in worship, in the Word, in ministry, and in fellowship.

Our greeters will open the door for you on the lefthand side of the building. You can place your coat on the hooks before entering the Sanctuary.
WHAT HAPPENS ON A SUNDAY?
During our gatherings, you can expect an authentic and spiritual experience with sermons from the Bible that you can apply to your life. We will hear directly from the Scriptures, sing and pray together, and have an opportunity to worship through tithes and offerings.
WHAT DO YOU DO FOR CHILDREN?
We care about our kids at Grace. We offer a dynamic Sunday school program, which runs from September through May. Check out our Student Ministries page for more information. JAM (Jesus and Me) is for 3K-2nd Grade; Thrive is for 3rd-5th Grade. Both JAM and Thrive take place during the sermon at the 9:30 Sunday worship service. Additionally, the nursery is staffed by loving adults during the 9:30 service. The nursery is open but not staffed during other services.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
We are a "come as you are" crowd so you will see everything from suits to jeans. Don't stress about what to wear! We are just happy that you came.
WHAT KIND OF MUSIC WILL THERE BE?
We provide a variety of music depending on the service style, liturgy, and season. Our musical director provides full, spiritual music on the organ for the traditional worship and modern, uplifting music with our praise team for our rejoice (contemporary) services. Additionally, we have special performances by soloists, adult and youth choirs, and instrumentalists. There are also brass, flute, and handbell music ensembles that play regularly.
WHAT IF I'M NOT SURE ABOUT CHRISTIANITY?
Great! That's why we started this church. Come and experience how God can transform your life.
CAN I ATTEND IF ______?
Fill in the blank with any insecurity, personal history, etc., and know that Grace is a place for all ages and walks of life. It's OK to not be OK -- God loves you no matter what, and we do, too!
We would be honored if you share an hour with us this weekend!
