Bring your blankets, pop-up tents and yard games with you when you come to church on Sunday. We will gather for ONE service inside at 11am and then stick around for games and food together. Koi, Getta Gyro and Slick’s food carts will be available for lunch. There is no Kidventure or Ardent this Sunday. This is going to be a great family service.

We immerse at Grace Chapel because we believe Scripture shows that Jesus modeled that for us as the way to publicly acknowledge our faith in Him. If you have accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, then you are ready to be baptized. Your baptism is an opportunity to show others that you trust in Christ and are now walking with Him.

All JH and SH parents, please join Josh, Austin and Brad as they share with you the vision of Ardent for the 2016-2017 school year.

At Grace Chapel, we believe spiritual growth happens best in community with one another. We set aside this Sunday and dedicate it to helping you connect with others in the church. On 9/18 and 9/25 we will provide an opportunity to get involved in a small group as well as get connected with other key communities in the church.
