What To Expect



Each week we gather for coffee and friendship, reverent music, and messages meant to inspire you and help you grow in your love for Jesus, yourself, and others. We make The Bible relevant to your life today so you can take what you’ve heard, apply it to your life, and experience Him as you never have before.

Church is Community

The Bible tells us that the church is not a building or a place but the people – and we feel that is true with Grace River. We are part of a loving community that values each other, our unique abilities, and has a passion for helping. We have each been given spiritual gifts to serve each other in many ways, including volunteering, to make our world an even better place.
