Grace Church offers four distinct worship services and styles. The dynamic preaching ministry at Grace Church brings Biblical, relevant, and provocative messages. Play the audio file of Pastor Bob Atkins' weekly sermon on the home page for a sampling. Music from our many choirs and musicians enhances each service.
5:00 pm Service
This intimate, informal Circle of Worship meets in the Activity Center. Set to the stirring vocals of singer/songwriter Vickie Wagner, this worship hour features circular seating and a healing service with anointing oils twice per month. There is also an American Sign Language interpreter at Saturday Evening Worship for those who are heaing impaired. Communion and a time for children accompany a message focusing on scripture each week. Come and worship with your family in casual attire.

Pastor Matthew Johnson began leadership of this worship service in January 2015. Along with thought-provoking visual projections, truly unique, interactive connections with the congregation, and meaningful messages for the people of today's changing church, the Grace Praise Team provides contemporary music from both the the religious and secular worlds in this service. Pastor Matthew's messages often reflect topics and discussions that appear on his website (www.porticocollective.org), blogs, and webcasts.
