WELCOME TO GRACE
Making 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.

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.
Sunday Mornings 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.
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 Fellowship Hall after worship to enjoy a time of connecting and geting to know one another.
New Worship Series - July 11 through August 22, 2021
"Geared Up for Life"
For this worship series, you are invited to take a walk with us through Paul’s Epistle to the Ephesians. Ephesians has been called “the Queen of the Epistles”. This letter from Paul divides neatly into two halves. The first half, chapters 1-3, provides a theological foundation for the faith in some of the most beautiful language in the Epistles. In part one we will highlight the last word of the theme: Gearing Up for LIFE. This would be the “why” part of the Epistle. Why do we embrace this life of faith? Why have we been given this blessing, this opportunity, this grace?
The second half, chapters 4-6, focuses on the ethical dimensions of the faith: How do we live it out? This second half reminds us that faith isn’t simply about believing, but about living. During these three weeks we will focus on the first part of the theme, GEARING UP for Life. This is the “how” part of the letter. Because of the grace we examined in the first half of the letter, this “how-to” section is a call to living a theologically ethical life. Join us each week and allow Ephesians to be our guide through these summer weeks as we seek to live out our faith, making disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world. We find real, on-the-ground help for that mission in these texts as we explore the “why” and the “how to” of Christian living.
