1st Grace welcomed our family several years ago with open arms. At that time, we didn't attend church or even open a Bible in our home. Over the years, 1st Grace showed our family how to grow in Christ and how to use our Bibles that were just collecting dust on the shelves. Wednesday night activities brought my daughter to receive Christ into her heart and she has learned to spread the Good News of the Gospel, including to my husband and I. 1st Grace isn't just any church or four walls, it is a family that is always wanting to share the love of God to anyone that walks through their doors. It doesn't matter if you never have opened a Bible or are a scholar, 1st Grace has the tools and God will help guide you to grow from whatever starting point. 1st Grace is a place you will feel loved and blessed. After one visit, you are no longer visiting, you are family!
Over the years I've attended several churches. When I visited 1st Grace right away I noticed a difference in people's attitudes. The congregation was genuinely happy to see each other and seemed like family. I've been with 1st Grace for 3 years now and have grown more than I ever spiritually. The church doesn't let you sit on the sidelines or in the pews they actively engage you and challenge you to strengthen your walk with Christ in a loving and encouraging way like family.
This church is home and family! They have a saying, "Come once and you’re a visitor, come twice you’re family!" 1st Grace is multi-generational with old and young all enjoying sweet relationships with one another. You can get plugged in and grow in Christ in whatever season of life you are in! Jesus said to go into all the world and make disciples and that is exactly what 1st Grace is about, making disciples to go out into the world and preach the good news to everyone!
Hey. 1st Grace is an awesome church that depends on God for everything. Our saying is, "the Bible the whole Bible and nothing but the Bible." I love that saying because it says so much about us. Pastor Bruce preaches straight out of the Word. My husband and I have been attending this church for about 4 years and We got married there as well. The people here are our family.
This place is awful!!!......Just kidding. 1st Grace is the first church to actually help me grow spiritually and turn my life over to Christ. I have not only been able to be discipled and mentored, but also have found outlets for serving as a student leader in Truth youth. This place is my home away from home.
Pastor Bruce, the believers, and the teachers at 1st Grace have helped me grow in my spiritual walk with God so much! They teach right from the Bible, get to know you personally, help you stay accountable, and treat each person like family! Everyone is so friendly and loving. There are many different classes and Bible Studies to plug into and they offer you plenty of ways to get involved and serve the people of the church and the outside community.
