Making disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.
Located in the beautiful foothills of the Black Hills, Grace United Methodist Church exists to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world. We invite you to join with us as we journey together in following Jesus. We're definitely not perfect, but we're striving to be faithful, and we thank God for the gift of grace. We look forward to meeting you and hearing your story!
ABOUT OUR CHURCH
Here at Grace United Methodist Church, we are all on a journey of faith. Some are just beginning, some are along the path a ways, and most of us are somewhere in between. We all have a common goal - to grow closer to Jesus. As disciples, we seek to share his love with a world in need by being the hands and feet and voice of Jesus.
WORSHIP and Sunday Mornings
Sunday Mornings - Worship at 9:00 am
Like most churches, there are sure to be things we don't do perfectly. As God's people a part of the Wesleyan tradition, we hope to grow in grace throughout our lives. If you come on Sunday, feel free to wear a dress or suit, or simply comes in a t-shirt and jeans. Come as you are. Our worship music is a mix of traditional hymns and contemporary songs.
If you're new, we'll try to not put you on the spot, but feel free to visit with our pastor or let us know if you need anything. We hope our words and actions convey that you are welcome, accepted, and loved. During our worship service we'll praise and thank God for through prayer and song. If folks have burdens or struggles, we'll also lift those up in prayer, and encourage persons to open up with one another (as they're comfortable) throughout the morning. At about 9:15 we offer Children's Church to those in preschool through sixth grade.
Sunday morning is an opportunity to gather together, to worship together, to rejoice and weep together, to receive forgiveness and extend grace together, to learn and be challenged together, and to experience the grace of God together, to be shaped into faithful disciples of Jesus, together.
You are also invited and encouraged to come to our Adult Sunday School class at 8:oo am and to join us in Fellowship Hall after worship to enjoy a time of connecting and getting to know one another.
New Worship Series - Jan. 8 - Feb. 19, 2023
"Glimpses of the Kin-dom"
Ordinary time refers to the ordinal or the counting of the weeks of the liturgical year. During this time we will explore what it is like to live an ordinary life as a part of the kin-dom of God; in other words, nothing like ordinary!
We are attempting to get a glimpse of what life as the people of God might be like as we consider some of the most famous passages of scripture to help us shape a vision of the life we are called to live. This is not a call to an everyday life. It is a call to an ordinary life that isn’t ordinary. Followers of Christ who live their faith day by day are anything but ordinary. They stand out; they become models and mentors; they are examples of what life is all about.
In this series, this is our hope and our belief: that our lives represent the kin-dom of God. We are the evidence that our faith is true and our God is at work in the world. We are now then the epiphany – the light shining forth for the world to see. Yes, we will fail from time to time. How we deal with failure is also a sign of that presence and glimpse of the kin-dom. Let us embrace the call with grace and with joy.
