We have two worship services each week—Sunday mornings at 9:00 am and Wednesday evenings at 6:35 pm (yes, we know it’s a weird time, but it’s part of an entire evening packed with supper, worship, and Christian education for all ages).
Worship generally includes Holy Communion and a time especially for children. We gather together, we sing, we pray, we hear God’s Word from the Bible and in proclamation, we share a meal, and we are sent into the world to share God’s love with all.
All are welcome to share in the meal where Christ is truly present in the bread and in the wine. We generally serve freshly baked bread and wine. Worshipers who are unable to eat the bread or drink the wine should feel assured that Christ is truly present in only the bread or the wine alone.
Parents choose whether their children will commune; classes are available once or twice a year to introduce children as young as three years old to the stories and promises in Holy Communion.
Anybody who chooses not to commune is welcome and invited to come forward for a blessing.
Old and new music comes together in mutually complementary ways, with both lyrics and musical styles supporting the biblical texts for each day.
Casual is the norm for worship at Grace. Jeans or shorts and dressier wear combine in the gathering of people celebrated for their presence, not their appearance.
