Get back to the real Christmas this December by putting the important things first: focusing on Christ. Every service this December celebrates Christ through the preaching of God's Word, joyful and vibrant singing, and genuine, loving fellowship.

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

Special Services

Christmas Program: A Christmas Tail

In this year's Christmas program, a young boy's grandfather reads him the story of a prophet who encounters a whale of an obstacle in his quest to run away from God. Join us on Saturday or Sunday, December 11-12, for a celebration of Christ through music, drama, and a brief message from God's Word.

Children are welcome to enjoy the program with their parents or attend a separate children's service during the Sunday morning service. Childcare for infants through 3-year-olds will be provided for the evening service.

  • Saturday, December 11, 7 p.m. (childcare provided through 3 years)
  • Sunday, December 12, 10:15 a.m. (childcare provided through 6th grade)
  • Sunday, December 12, 6 p.m. (rebroadcast on livestream only)

This Grace Church family tradition will be held on Wednesday, December 23 at 7 p.m. All groups from children to adults will meet in the auditorium for a special time of Bible reading and singing Christmas hymns. We end the evening singing "Silent Night" by candlelight.
