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 - October 2-23, 2022
October is an odd oasis in the liturgical rhythms of many churches. To fill this space, then, we present a worship series titled “Not Ashamed” based on the Epistle readings. The lectionary walks through the second epistle to Timothy, giving us some of the highlights of this powerful but short letter.
These passages from 2nd Timothy represent the last written word from Paul and, therefore, is even more poignant. Here is the passing on of wisdom, the commissioning of a successor, or even the blessing of a veteran leader to an up-and-comer.
We focus not on the author but on the content. We are calling for and hoping for a revival of the soul and the passion of the church, a passion for the world that surrounds us and the needs of our neighbors. We see in Second Timothy a call to not be ashamed of our faith. This is an opportunity for us to live out our witness to Christ with compassion and radical hospitality, to engage the world with the hearts of servants, and to engage with our neighbors with the humble joy of those who know forgiveness and grace.
