FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS


What should I wear?
You can wear whatever you feel comfortable in. At Grace you will find everything from a suit and tie to shorts and flip flops. Simply come as you are.

When should I arrive? We recommend that you arrive 15 minutes prior to the start of the service. This allows you time to drop off your children, grab a cup of coffee and find a seat prior to the start of the service.

How can I learn more about Grace Church? If you are interested in finding out more about Grace Church or how to get involved, join us for Next Step! Come find out about the story, values, mission and vision of Grace. Bring your questions for the Q&A time! This is a great place to help determine if Grace will be a good church home for you!
