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 - December 3-31, 2023
Join us this Advent season in a grand, movie-like epic as we focus on the expectation and then on the arrival of the Messiah, Jesus Christ.
This year we will journey through Advent as it plays out like a movie. On December 3 we get a hint that something big is coming. We are invited to stay tuned and to wait for it. Then we see John the Baptist entering the scene, setting the stage for coming of the Messiah. Here we are reminded of the significance of baptism, and we are invited to remember our wilderness experience. This leads into a transition from John witnessing to the light to Jesus being the light. Then, on Christmas Eve morning, we find ourselves behind the scenes, right there in Elizabeth’s living room. In this flashback, the suspense grows as we witness to the fact that nothing is impossible with God. As we gather on Christmas Eve, the birth story unfolds in a stable and then we find ourselves outside, in the cold with some shepherds. The sky explodes (think of a grand Stephen Spielberg movie) as the angels announce the birth to the shepherds. These humble characters find the baby Jesus and leave the scene with great joy, telling the story to all they meet. Advent and 2023 concludes on December 31 as we get a foretaste of things to come – the sequel! Two devout believers identify Jesus and praise God for this gift. We are left with this question: Now what?
