THERE IS NO 8:30 Service on Sunday, October 1, 2017. There will only be one service at 10:30 am this day.
This is an informal service in the intimate setting of our Crawford Chapel. Fellowship time begins immediately after this service right outside the Chapel door in Grace Hall.
Coffee Hour 9:30 - 10:30 a.m.
All are welcome to join us, meet and mingle with one another, learn about Grace Church, and enjoy a little pre-service or post-service conversation.

This more traditional service, held in the beautiful Grace Church Sanctuary, includes the Chancel choir and a children's sermon. Worshipers are welcome to bring their coffee with them from the Grace Hall Fellowship time which is from 9:30 – 10:30 a.m.

Music is a vital and integral part of the worship experience at Grace. Choral or instrumental, traditional or contemporary…there is something for everyone in the music ministry at Grace. Whether you are a trained musician or someone who loves to "make a joyful noise," you can be part of the music ministry at Grace.
Grace's chancel choir helps to lead worship every Sunday at the 10:30 a.m. service. Rehearsals are Thursday nights at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday mornings at 10 a.m. Choir members also lead Grace's annual Lessons and Carols service. The repertoire is widely varied and provides a challenging musical experience.
The hand bell choir performs semi-monthly at the 10:30 a.m. service and rehearses Thursday nights at 6:15 p.m.
The Sacrament of Holy Communion, or the Lord’s Supper, is very important to United Methodists. We celebrate Holy Communion on the first Sunday of each month at both of our services. For United Methodists, the Lord’s Table is open to all who wish to receive the Sacrament.
Acolytes are the candle lighters during the worship service. They also assist with communion, the offering and any other worship activities. Acolytes can be adults or children 10 and older. Volunteers for acolyting are always welcome.
Ushers do more than collect the offering! Ushers distribute worship bulletins and assist people to find seats close to others with whom they have something in common. Ushers are the on-site ‘formal and official’ representatives of the congregation for making everyone feel secure and comfortable as we gather for worship. Ushering volunteers are always welcome!
