Grace Community Fellowship is an Evangelical Presbyterian Church founded in 2008 … though it existed in our hearts for much longer than that. Grace is a church family that seeks to reach outside its own four walls.
Grace means “an unearned and undeserved blessing.”
That’s definition number 12 in The Unabridged Oxford English Dictionary. Look it up!
This is what we celebrate as a church: God’s grace through God’s “gracious” gifts to us, including free and full forgiveness, unconditional love, eternal life and, most importantly, a relationship with Him.
We want others to experience the wonder of this relationship as well. But we don’t expect it to just happen, and we don’t want to have a “just-show-up-at-our-meetings” attitude. So we’re trying to reach out to our community.
Yes! We want to have the best possible programs that the maximum number of people will want to participate in. But we also want to be the best possible neighbors. So we have retained the USD290 bus stop, we open our building for children on cold or rainy days, and we maintain the playground for anyone and everyone in the neighborhood.
We also want to be the best possible stewards of God’s money, so that we can plan the best programs for our community. Instead of constructing a 3 million dollar new building, we are renovating a 90-year old historic school building. We would rather put money into helping others than into bricks and mortar.
As an evangelical Presbyterian church, we believe the Bible remains relevant and authoritative for all believers today; that God brings us into an eternal relationship with Him as a gift and not on the basis of anything we might do to earn it; that being a Christian means we are called to be living proof of a loving God to a watching world—to live lives that matter and give testimony to the truth of God’s love and His involvement in our lives and our world.
