Get back to the real Christmas this December by putting the important things first. Take a moment out of the holiday hustle and bustle to focus on Christ. Every service this December celebrates Christ by the preaching of God's Word, joyful and vibrant singing, and genuine, loving fellowship.

Save these dates for special times to celebrate Christ's birth with the Grace Church family:
