Plan A Visit


If it’s your first time at Grace Community Church you will be warmly welcomed. Things may feel different here from what you are used to, so here are a few frequently asked questions to help you plan your trip.

When do I need to get there?

We recommend you arrive about 10 minutes early so you can enjoy a cup of coffee before you head into service.

Where do I park?

Grace has plenty of parking in the garage next to the auditorium as well as in the lots along Second Street South.

How long is the service?

Our service lasts just one hour and includes a short time of engaging music with a message that is relevant to your everyday life.

Can I attend if I’m not sure what I believe?

Absolutely. Grace is a safe place to explore faith no matter what you believe (your doubts and tough questions are welcome too).

What should I wear?

Our environment is casual. Feel free to wear jeans and a t-shirt, your Sunday best or anything that feels comfortable.

What about my kids?

We want this to be the best hour of your child’s week. We offer an exciting program for kids and youth from six weeks – 8th grade with lessons designed specifically for each age. You’ll want to allow a few additional minutes when you arrive with kids to get them checked in and settled in their classrooms.
