General Questions

What are the service times at Grace Chapel?

Sunday services are at 9:00a and 11:11a.

Is there a significance to the 11:11a service time?

One reason we keep it 11:11am is because it sparks interest and conversation just like your question and it's unique so it sticks in people's minds.

 

But way beyond that, and certainly more important, the time 11:11am was a special time between Pastor Steve and his son, Josiah, who transitioned to Heaven on his 19th birthday due to a tragic car accident. It seemed fitting to honor his legacy in this way.

How do I get baptized?

We'd love to celebrate your new life in Christ! Baptisms usually happen once a month in the Sanctuary. Some folks also like to be baptized in the river on the back side of the property.

If you'd like to be baptized, email Heather!

What do you have for my kids?

On a typical non-pandemic Sunday, we have safe, Jesus-centered programming for kids birth-12th grade.

 

For now, our Student Ministries (6th-12th) are not meeting on Sunday mornings. If you have kids birth-5th grade, you can worship with us in our family setting in the Chapel. The service will be streamed there and your kids are given age-appropriate activities to do during the service.

 

On Wednesdays, our Student Ministry meets from 6:30-8:00p for worship and small groups. You can find out more about that at gracechapel.net/students.

I noticed the pulpit looks burned. What happened?

It happened at a Women's Ministry worship/prayer night way back in the day -- let's just say candles and a freshly lacquered pulpit do not mix well! Well actually...they mix VERY well!

 

Pastor Steve decided to leave it because it's a constant reminder to him and whoever preaches that the pulpit should always be on Fire with the Presence and Spirit of God.

Do you have coffee?

We have a full service coffee bar in our Family Room (Entrance 3) with coffee and tea for purchase. We also offer simple drip coffee for free in the Fellowship Hall. 

getting connected questions

How do I get into a small group?

Life Groups are the heartbeat of our church.

 

When you really start to pursue God and pursue relationship with others, fear becomes courage; shame becomes healing and transformation; blame becomes ownership, responsibility, dominion, transformation. 

 

Find a group that's right for you.

Do you have adult Sunday School?

We don't offer traditional Sunday School, but you can grow in your relationship with God and relationship with others through our Adult Equipping classes.

 

They're offered in the Fall, Winter, and Spring on Sunday mornings and Wednesday nights.

Do you have Church Membership?

Yes! We suggest that you take the “Welcome to Grace Chapel” class offered three times a year. In this class, we get to know who you are and what you’re about, and you’ll learn more about Grace Chapel.
