Grace Chapel is a non-denominational church that is welcome to all people. We have a desire to be a place where people experience belonging and breakthrough. We seek to experience and express the essence of Jesus so that our broken and fragmented world can experience the healing and life that God promises everyone.
We do this by conveying the Fathers heart for the world and each other. We believe that this is possible through the power of the Holy Spirit and the practice of walking in the Spirit.
Whether you’re curious about Jesus or have been pursuing Him for many years, we long to be a community that will encourage and challenge one another to take the next step towards Him.
Every Sunday we offer three identical services at 8:30am, 10:15am and 12pm. Just pick the one that is most convenient for you and join us. People often ask, “What should I wear?” We’re more concerned with meeting your real life needs than with what you wear. So dress casually and you’ll fit right in.
We know that as a parent you need be sure that your children are in a SAFE learning environment. And we know that your children are looking for a FUN place to learn. From the time you take your child down the hallway to their classroom they will want to come back! To learn more about what your kids will experience scroll on down.

Every Fall we attend “BELIEVE” put on by CIY (Christ In Youth). BELIEVE is a high-energy weekend event made for middle school students. Students and leaders will engage in a packed weekend of powerful worship and teaching from God’s word that focuses on being Kingdom workers.
Every Winter Ardent JH puts on a Winter Camp located at Trout Creek Bible Camp. This camp is ran by the Grace Chapel staff designed just for Middle School students. Students and their leaders will spend a weekend together with their cabins as they play paint ball, zip line through the forest, rock climb, play epic night games, worship, hear a message about Jesus, and have cabin time to discuss what is on their minds and hearts. This has been such an impactful time for many students in their relationship with Jesus and their friends and leaders.
Ardent High School Student Ministry motivates students to experience and express the essence of Jesus in our lives transforming us into the people God has called us to be. Through this we experience life to the fullest and are connected to the heart of God on a daily basis.

We also serve the broken and sometimes forgotten through City Team International in Portland. During Spring break, we build homes in Mexico through Amor Ministries and it is an absolutely incredible experience.
Ardent Wednesday night is for high school students to connect to the Father+Son+Holy Spirit. Dinner / Testimony / Prayer / Worship / The Word all designed for high school students to minister to one another and hear what God has to say for their lives.
Our adult communities are aimed at helping compliment and supplement what God wants to do in and through our families at Grace Chapel. This approach helps us align resources in a way that serves multiple generations at a variety of life stages with our common cause as our goal.
We as women, live in a world that tells us we need to be it all and have it all. But that pursuit has left us tired, feeling like failures, looking for identity, and seeking some sort of balance in our lives. Here at Grace Chapel, we want to come alongside you in that journey. We want to seek God’s truth about who you are and why He created you.
Our desire is to experience and express the essence of Jesus by stepping into the vulnerable, marginalized and risky places of injustice. Below is a list of the opportunities, ministries and organizations we support as a church and encourage our community to invest in.
