Grace Weekly

New to Grace?

You Are Invited to a Reception Right After Services!
If you’re new with us today, we're so glad you are here. Please fill out a Guest card from the pew and drop it in the offering plate, then stop by the Engage Center between the red columns on the Patio. We'd like to get to know you and have a chance to answer any questions you may have. We look forward to meeting you!

Come for Prayer After Services

We are here for you and would love to pray with you! The Lord has commanded us to place our anxieties upon Him (Philippians 4:6-7) and together, bring one anothers' concerns before Him (James 5:16).  Our prayer partners will be waiting to help carry your burdens to the heart of God in prayer with you, right after service. Come on up to the front of the Worship Center, by the stage and someone will be there to meet you. It is our desire to help you trust God with your life's details, and not to feel alone.

Baptism Is a Powerful Object Lesson

Baptism portrays the reality of salvation by faith in Christ alone. The spiritual deadness which once characterized the sinner is buried forever and in its place God has raised the believing person to new life in Christ! Let’s celebrate what God has done! If you’re interested in being baptized, email: outreach@gracebaptist.org
