We at Grace love, welcome, and invite the community to our church and school. We pray that God will continue to grant us grace as we learn and grow in the good news of Jesus Christ. We will serve God by serving others, and we will provide a Christian education to the diverse people of our community, especially the children of our school.
We are glad you are here, and we pray that whether you are visiting this website or joining us in worship, you will encounter the victory of the Triune God, embrace the teaching of Christ, and be strengthened for life by the power of the Holy Spirit.
Worship with us on Sundays at 10:00am
Our Service: Adults and children worship together. The first twenty minutes of service every week is Children’s Church. It consists of songs, a Bible memory verse, and a children’s sermon. During the school year, the children are released to their Sunday school classes at 10:20am, during the summer they stay with their family and service continues with the Service of the Word and Holy Communion. After church, the children and adults meet for fellowship in the Blue Room or in our garden weather permitting.
