Demonstrate Your Thankfulness This Season

Each holiday season, Grace Church anticipates and relies on a seasonal increase in contributions. It is through the donations of every individual and family in the congregation that we are able to carry on our work now and throughout the year. If you need a convenient way to make recurring contributions or plan to make an additional gift before the end of the year, we encourage you to check out our electronic giving options. As the pace of life speeds up around the holidays, you may find electronic giving a most welcome way to make contributions.

Advent Season

The word Advent means arrival or coming. When we speak about Advent Season – it is the 21 days before Christmas on which we celebrate the birth of Jesus. For most of us, this time of year is filled with activity, gatherings, shopping, and lots of interaction. But if we are to truly remember and celebrate the birth of our Savior, it will not happen by accident. Join us for our Advent Sermon Series as we make space for the arrival of Jesus.
