We joyfully worship, grow in faith, and serve with Jesus
as we invite and welcome our neighbors.
Our mission comes from a renewed focus on the neighbors Jesus calls us to love.
Love is just a word unless it’s a true effort to invite and welcome everyone
into the joy of worship, service, and growth in faith.
God wants to be a part of their lives!
At Grace, that starts with Baptism, a special moment when God, parents, and the entire congregation promise to bless children with their love and support.
Once children are baptized, parents begin to receive Splash!, a monthly resource developed to help nurture even the youngest children in the faith.
When children are 3 before August 31, they are welcome to Sunday School at Grace. Though 6th grade, children enjoy learning about the Bible and Jesus through reading, music, drama, art, movies, and seasonal family faith activities.
The goal of Confirmation at Grace is not to memorize answers to recite before the congregation or a scary pastor! As seventh graders, children begin a three-year journey of learning about their faith and exploring many ways of being disciples of Jesus. This journey includes classes, worship, fun, and service opportunities including Mission Trips.
Confirmation is not the end of our commitment to young people at Grace. Every Sunday morning during the school year, adults and pastors are available between the worship services for fun or serious conversations. Young people are welcome to lock-ins, outdoor or indoor trips and games, and Shanty Town, a outdoor homelessness education experience led by Pastor Larry for almost two decades. Especially after Confirmation, young people at Grace begin to play service and leadership roles including reading or sharing music during worship and even serving as members of our Boards!
We find ways to bless all the children at Grace so they grow in their faith to become a blessing to others: to members of Grace, but to the communities and churches they may move to as adults.
