First Time Joining Us?

We’re excited to have you join us! We get it, coming to a new church for the first time can be nerve-racking, which is why we want to let you know ahead of time what you can expect during our Sunday service.

Our service includes lively worship music, including a mix of timeless hymns and contemporary songs. We sing because we believe that Jesus is worthy of our praise.

Clear Bible Teaching
Because we love Jesus, we also love hearing from the Book that teaches about Him and how to pursue Him – the Bible. You will hear teaching that communicates the message of the Bible in everyday language. If you do not have a Bible, we have one for you!

What should I wear?
When you come you will notice some people are dressed up while others are not. Our concern is not to dress to impress but to provide an opportunity to worship God. So whether it is shorts, slacks, jeans, or anything in between we want you to focus on meeting God, not what you wear.

Where should I park?
Feel free to park anywhere in the main parking lot but we do reserve several visitor spots upfront.

What about my kids?

Grace Life Kids is available for families with children from 1-year old through fifth grade. Check-in begins 15 minutes prior to service at the Grace Life Kids desk (registration required).

Starting November 8th our elementary-age room will be available for children ages K-6th grade. They will start in the service with their families and then will be dismissed prior to the sermon. However, we also welcome all kids to stay for the whole service with their families if desired.

We also offer a “Future Worshippers’ Room” that features a live stream of the service and is available for nursing mothers and infants, along with young families whose children aren’t quite ready to sit in service.

What Happens Next?

Community Life Groups is where we meet together with a small group and study God’s Word while building into one another. These groups vary widely in their appearance. Some meet at coffee shops in the early morning to allow for kid-free distractions while others meet as whole family units in the evening. Community Life Groups is the launch point for further getting involved within the body of Grace Life Church.
