Our Chapel, which located along the driveway heading towards the Church Office, is open 24 Hours a Day, 7 Days a Week for prayer.
Grace UMC holds two worship services on Sunday mornings at 8:15am in the Chapel, and 10am in our Sanctuary. Sunday School for Grades Pre-K through 6 is offered during the 10am Service. We also have several opportunities for Education, Small Groups, and Fellowship. Please see our Sundays at Grace page for more information.

What Can I Expect on Sunday Mornings?
As you come into our Gathering Area, near the Sanctuary, you will be greeted by a member of our hospitality team, who will be more than happy to answer any questions you may have about our church. Children are encouraged (but not required) to head to our Sunday School Check-In area and join our weekly Sunday School classes. As you head into the Sanctuary, our Ushers will provide you with a bulletin. The bulletin provides you with an outline of our worship service for the day, as well as a wealth of information about our church, including upcoming events and opportunities.
There is handicap seating available for wheelchairs. Please ask our Ushers for assistance, and they will guide you.
During the course of the Service, you can use the order of worship in your bulletin to follow along, as well as the hymnals provided in your pews. We also project prayers, scripture and hymns on the front walls of the sanctuary for your convenience. There are opportunities to greet people around you as well as offer up prayer concerns. On the first Sunday of the month, we offer communion, which is open to all people, regardless of wheither you are a member of our church, or any church. Directions for communion are given by the Pastor during the service.
Visitors are encouraged to fill out a Connection Card, located in your pew. Our Connection Card gives us an opportunity to learn a little more about you and will help us to better keep you connected to happenings at the church. You will have an opportunity during the service to pass your Connection Card to the Ushers.
After the service, you are invited to join us for coffee, snacks, and fellowship. Our Pastors, as well as members of our hospitality team are available to answer any questions you may have. There is also an area in the back of our Sanctuary where you can learn about the various Events and Mission Opportunities that Grace UMC has to offer.
If you have any questions prior to attending our worship service, feel free to e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org, and your question will be answered by one of our staff.
