Background

What does Grace Family Church believe?

Our beliefs (Statement of Faith) are located under the ‘About Us’ tab.

What should I wear to church?

Most people dress according to their own comfort level. You will see all manner of dress at any given service – from jeans to suits, slacks to dresses. We will be glad to have you.

What do I do with my children?

We have children’s and youth ministry for all ages. Our nursery and children’s classes are staffed by people who are ready to welcome and care for any child who enters through the doors. Just drop them off at their classroom before the service and they will be in safe, loving hands until you are ready to pick them up. The nursery also includes a place for mothers to care for their newborns when in need.

Where do I go when I get there?

Each service there are greeters and ushers at the two main entrances who are available to assist you and to help you feel comfortable with your new surroundings. They can direct you to the different areas of our buildings and facilities and answer any questions you may have.

Do I need to become a member?

No, all are welcome to worship with us at Grace Family Church. However, there are membership classes available for those who are interested in membership and opportunities to serve at Grace Family Church.

Do you have special communion services?

Communion is generally observed the third Sunday of each month.

Do you have resources that will help with my spiritual growth?

We encourage you to browse through GFC’s Bookstore located in our reception area. You can purchase audio messages from recent services as well as message series and various books that will build your faith.

When are services held?

Sunday Services 10:15 AM

Jesus made a statement one night to a well-respected man about Heaven. He said, “Unless one is born again, he cannot see the Kingdom of God” (John 3:3).  The only way to know for certain that you are going to Heaven is to be born again. To be “born again” or “saved” means to believe in your heart on the Lord Jesus and to confess Him with your mouth.

“That if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.”  Romans 10:9, 10

If you are ready to make Jesus your Savior and Lord and to have the assurance that you’re going to Heaven, pray this simple prayer out loud sincerely:

Dear Heavenly Father,

I believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, that He died for my sins and You raised Him from the dead. Father, I ask You to forgive me of all my sin and to cleanse me from all unrighteousness.  I declare now that I am saved. Jesus is my Savior and my Lord. I will live the rest of my life serving God. I know when I die I’ll go to Heaven. Father God, thank You for saving me, in Jesus’ Name.  Amen.

If you have made a commitment to Christ, we would like to hear from you. Please contact us.
