Visiting a church for the first time can be scary
What is a service like? What if can’t find the place I’m supposed to be? This page is designed to help answer those important questions and more, and hopefully make your first Sunday worshiping with us easier.
What to expect
easy to navigate location
The campus of Grace Church is compact, so you don’t have to worry about getting lost. Once you park, you’ll be greeted at the door. Our welcome center is easy to find, and the volunteers who you’ll meet there will be happy to help if you have any questions about classroom or bathroom locations.
Friendly and warm people
We strive to cultivate a friendly atmosphere at Grace Church. Whether you enjoy meeting new people or would rather find your seat and wait for the service to start, there is a hum of conversation around the sanctuary. No awkward silence.
Meaningful and motivating worship
No one wants to sit through a bad sermon or sing along to an off key band. Since faith is about real life and not a religious exercise, we strive to make the worship experience relevant to the struggles, victories and realities of a walk with God.
What about kids?
Our church is made up of families in all stages, and we take special care to serve our families with children at home. Your entire family is welcome in the worship service, but since it can be challenging for kids to enjoy the typical worship service, they are also invited to be a part of our Children’s Sunday morning programs. For more info on how this works, check out our Children’s ministry page. There is also a teens Sunday school class that meets during the 10:45am service.
What should I wear?
The people who call Grace home come from a wide variety of church backgrounds, and so on any given Sunday you might see a retired gentleman wearing a jacket and tie right next to a young mom in a t-shirt and shorts. We encourage people to come with an open mind, wearing whatever is comfortable to them, because church shouldn’t be about appearances.
What is the music like?
Everyone has a preference when it comes to music, and it’s true in church as well. We’ve got former Gospel choir singers as well as rock drummers who are members of our church. That means that we do our best to represent all styles of music at different times, but that’s not the most important issue to us. The most critical thing is that whatever the song sounds like, it’s always focused on drawing those singing closer to God through vibrant praise and honest expression.
What is the Sermon like?
We believe that the Word of God has the power to change lives, and so we spend a significant portion of our time together each Sunday studying the Scriptures together. Sermons typically discuss a specific passage of Scripture as the speaker guides us through the process of interpreting timeless truths verse-by-verse. The sermons build on one another too, since the pastors usually preach a multi-week series through books and large sections of Scripture. The goal is always to highlight so kind of life application, so that each can leave with a clearer idea of God’s desire for their lives.
