Discover Grace

Grace Presbyterian is a big church with so much going on, it can be easy to feel a little overwhelmed by it all. Discover Grace is designed for folks that are newer to Grace. It is an opportunity to meet with Pastor Julia, other staff, and deacons and to get know Grace Presbyterian Church through conversation. We will share about Grace's mission and vision and the opportunities to step into what we call the "Rhythm of Grace." We will answer questions you have and share about the ministries at and through Grace. Light refreshments and drinks will be provided. Children can attend the age appropriate Family Ministry gatherings during the reception time or you can bring you kids along with you. We will make sure they have an activity and a snack as well. The next reception will be on Sunday, May 19 at 11 a. m. in Massey-Tucker Fellowship Hall-B. You can let us know you plan to attend HERE or simply drop in. The best way to enter the room is by using the exterior, middle double doors off of the courtyard. 

Covenant Partner Course

The new Covenant Partner Course is our process for learning more about the key theological essentials of Grace, and the vision, the mission, and the strategy of Grace. The course is led by pastors, elders, deacons, and staff and it is our unique way of talking about membership in a congregation. During the course, you will be invited to explore if joining as a “Covenant Partner” is the right next step in your journey of faith in Jesus. Refreshments and drinks will be provided.

The next course will take place on Sunday, April 21 at 11 a.m. Let us know you are coming by registering HERE.
