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.

"In Awe of Grace" HOLY WEEK 2023
Every day is a holy day if you live into the truth of the ever-present God. Every moment is a moment rich with possibility and hope; every relationship is a potential insight into the activity of the Spirit; every conversation is a living word of grace and peace. With his last words, John Wesley said, “Best of all, God is with us.” Amen.
Yet there are times and seasons that seem even more holy. There are moments that reverberate with the living presence of the living God, and our only proper response is to fall to our knees in awe of grace. These eight days are one of those times. Some argue they are the preeminent days when history, our history, and our understanding of self and God and life itself all changed. From Palm Sunday through Easter, the world is remade, a new creation, and we are blessed to be a part of it, blessed to receive a gift beyond words, which is nothing less than eternity itself.
Join us as we walk through this roller coaster of a week, attempting to touch on the highs and the lows and the ever-present redeeming grace of God. Join us as we seek to carry through the sense of wonder and amazement as we walk with Jesus in the last week of his incarnated and earthly life. Join us to hear the story and then to bow in wonder, reflect in awe, corporately or individually. Join us as we invite reflection and prayer, confession, and thanksgiving throughout this amazing week. Join us for this Holy Week as we draw towards Easter – when we can stand in awe of grace.
