The Grace Story

The Grace Story

Grace began on Christmas Eve 2000 when a small group of people joined together to form a new church. They didn’t know what this new church would be or should be, they just figured that God would lead them in due time. Naturally they assumed that it would head down a traditional church path of membership and organization, but God had other plans.

A Church For People Who Don’t Go To Church

It all started on a plane. After 18 months of some pretty serious prayer, God finally spoke at 30,000 feet. Those nine words – “A Church For People Who Don’t Go To Church” – were the first definitive impression from God on what Grace would be (maybe the extra height helped). Now to be honest with you, we were not exactly sure what those nine words meant. We could have tried to explain it, but why try. We just started putting that simple phrase on all of our printed materials and on our website and what we soon realized is that it resonated with people who had been bored by church, burned by church, or just flat out never went to church. They would say things like, “I don’t go to church so I figured this was the place for me.” God had a few more surprises for Grace. Things like no membership, no formal offering collection, and no pressure to believe. We focused our energy on respecting people wherever they were spiritually and doing our best to build healthy relationships.

Today Grace is a vibrant community of people from all kinds of backgrounds, beliefs and walks of life. We can’t guarantee we will have all of the answers you are looking for, but we can assure you we will always respect and honor your spiritual journey, wherever you are. So whether you’re just taking a peek into a relationship with Christ or you're already fully committed to Him, we warmly invite you to give Grace a try.
