WEEKEND SERVICES

SATURDAY 4 & 5:30PM || SUNDAY 8, 9:30 & 11AM

TIM HOWEY
SENIOR PASTOR

Hi, I am Tim Howey. I’m the husband of an amazing woman, the father of three wonderful kids, and the founder and senior pastor of Grace Church. I am dedicated to the mission God first laid on my heart over twenty years ago — to make disciples and plant churches like the church of Antioch did in the book of Acts (Acts 11-15). We are committed to fostering a disciple-making movement by planting not just one church, but many churches. It is a great honor and privilege to lead so many incredible people here in south Kansas City. We are so excited to have you here at Grace Church. Blessings!

OVERLAND PARK CAMPUS


THE AUDITORIUM
 houses our worship services every weekend at the times listed above. You can expect worship music led by a live band, a message taught by one of our pastors, a time of prayer, and fellowship after each service. We invite your entire family to join us!

THE VENUE, located here at our Overland Park campus, provides live worship with a video message and time for prayer and fellowship after each service. It also offers a smaller church feel for those looking to connect on a more personal level while allowing you a similar worship experience as our other gathering spaces. Services take place at 9:30 and 11am on Sunday.

GRACE CAFE is open during all weekend services and live streams the worship and message allowing you engage while sipping a hot cup of joe.

WELCOME CENTERS are open during all services to answer any questions you may have as well as give you a gift if this is your first time here! They are located on our first and second floors near the main entrances.

Worship online or on our mobile app from anywhere in the world during all services.

Grace Kids classes are available during all services (nursery – 5th grade).

Grace Students meet weekly on Sunday nights at 4:30pm.

Our Young Adults meet weekly here at the Overland Park campus every Wednesday at 7pm.

Our SOAR Special Needs Ministry has “buddies” for children/adults with special needs during all services. The middle school through adult special needs class meets Sundays during the 11am service.

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!
