  • What to wear: Whatever you’re comfortable wearing! We don’t care, and we don’t think God cares, either, whether you’re in jeans, shorts, or your “Sunday best.” Hand sanitizers are available by the entrances. Masks are optional. Our sanctuary is large enough to accommodate social distancing.
  • Where to sit: Anywhere! We don’t have assigned seats!
  • Babies, children, and youth are always welcome in worship! The sound of a baby is music to our ears! Worship includes a Children’s Moment, after which children and youth are welcome to leave adult worship for their own activities. Please see our Home Page for more information about our Children and Youth Ministries. Grace follows the Safe Sanctuaries® policy of the United Methodist Church. Safe Sanctuaries are an overt expression of making congregations safe places where children, youth, and elders may experience the abiding love of God and fellowship within the community of faith.
