Welcome Hope…Welcome Love…Welcome All! You are a gift from God, and Grace UMC welcomes you!

Worship with us
every Sunday

Worship is for everyone who longs for God. We welcome you wherever you are in your journey of faith. Worship is about honoring and praising our Lord and Savior. It is a time when we gather together to experience the presence of the Holy Spirit, and express our joy and gratitude. The power of God’s word touches those who are hurting and awakens hope for the hopeless. We invite you to celebrate the good news in Jesus Christ!

8AM & 10:30AM services each Sunday. The 10:30AM service is broadcast online via ZOOM or Facebook. Click here to find our more about online services.
