Join with us

In our world today there are so many opportunities on Sunday morning so why join a church? Well the short best answer is that you aren’t joining a church as much as you are extending your family to include those who share in your life. At Grace we see membership as an opportunity to share with one another not only our faith journeys but the ups and downs of life along the way. In between we enjoy a few meals together, share in activities that teach us more about our relationship with God and each other, and reach out to those who could use a little help every once in a while. Fact is most of us could use a hug every now and then. 
Membership in our church requires that we believe in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, that we acknowledge the Trinity of God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, that we come either baptized having professed our faith or be willing to be baptized and profess our belief in Jesus Christ. If you are a member of another denomination it is as simple as transferring your membership in most cases. The Pastor would be delighted to talk with you about membership. Where else can you become 
a member, have opportunities to
learn and help
others, receive
hugs, smiles and
a little help when
you need it and
share in a journey
that is eternal?
The United Methodist Church Belief
Why does the church exist? According to Matthew’s Gospel, the risen Christ made it clear: “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you” (Matthew 28:19-20). Based on this “Great Commission,” our United Methodist Church has stated its purpose: “The   vision of the Church is to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world. So the mission of our congregation is to make disciples. We do this through Radical Hospitality, Passionate Worship, Risk Taking Mission, Intentional Faith Development and Extravagant Generosity.  
The Vision of Grace United Methodist Church is “Building relationships in our community through prayer, love and action as we become followers of Christ.” As a church community, we worship God every Sunday morning with a Casual Service at 9:00 a.m. and our Traditional service 11:00 a.m.  A Nursery is provided. We have a very active music program with Choir, Bell Choir and Children’s Choir. We also have active Group Study and Youth programs. Our focus is on being the “Face of God” to the community in which we live and serve. We would love for you to become a part of our family.
