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.
Next Worship Series - October 1-29, 2023
"The Enemies of Gratitude"
Main idea: Exploring the things that keep us from being content and grateful.
During this series we will call out the things that keep us from being truly grateful. Each week we will see how a misplaced focus prevents us from seeing all of the blessings that God has placed right before us.
When we fall into thinking about how things could be or used to be better, when worry becomes our primary focus, when we fuss about things that we think we deserve, when we get too focused on what we have (or don’t have), when we get caught up in the ways that life’s struggles keep getting us down – then we can fail to see God’s Spirit in our lives and at work in our midst. From this place of discontent we can lose our way as followers of Jesus Christ.
Instead of getting stuck in the what if, if only, and woulda/coulda/shoulda – what if we chose to live with an attitude of gratitude? How would your life, our church, and this world change if we made the intentional choice to move forward in faith and trust in what God has done, is doing, and will do? Join us as we seek to find out!
