Welcome from the Pastor

If you’re new to Grace Community Church, or just visiting our website, please know you’re very welcome here. Our hope for Grace Community Church is to build a community that welcomes people from all walks of life and a place that everyone can call home. We meet every Sunday for worship and teaching at 10:45. We have discussion-oriented classes for adults and children that explore the Bible and topics relevant to living as a follower of Jesus that run from 9:30-10:30 on Sundays as well. During the week, various groups meet in homes to foster community and encourage one another to wholeheartedly pursue our relationship with God.
