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 settle in before service begins.

Where do I park?

Grace has plenty of parking in the garage next to Thomas Jefferson Middle School, 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. Dress in comfortable clothing appropriate for the weather and bring a camp chair or blanket.

What guidelines are you following for COVID-19 safety?

We follow social distancing guidelines and ask everyone attending to wear a mask. Please perform a self-screen for COVID-19 symptoms and a temperature check prior to attending service.

What about my kids?

Our service is family-friendly and includes fun activities to keep your preschoolers through preteens engaged. Meet on the playground after service to connect with other families.
