About Grace’s Building Renovation Project
Update March 14, 2020: The grand opening of our new auditorium is POSTPONED to a later date due to the governor’s emergency executive order regarding COVID-19. We are shifting to online services instead of on-site until further notice. You can find out more information on our COVID-19 page. We are still excited about all that the Lord has done for Grace and hope that you will join us for online services as well as our grand opening in the future!
Update March 4, 2020: We are even closer to completing our building renovation project! We’ve seen amazing advancements including the completion of multiple venues, the Grace Kids large worship/group space, technology upgrades throughout the building, additional offices, updates to the building exterior, a broadcast studio control room where our Weekend Experience Team will produce services and special events, and Room 190-a gathering space for groups and the location of Friends Worship Service on Sunday mornings for our friends with disabilities.
On March 14-15, we will reveal our new main worship space. Join us for this milestone weekend at our regular service times: Saturday at 5 PM or Sunday at 9:30 or 11 AM. The new worship space will feature state-of-the-art technology and developments. As we transition from our 9 for 92 period (the nine weeks that we worshipped in various locations throughout our building) we are excited to return to this space together! Please note, the Sunday 12:30 PM service (temporary during 9 for 92) will end on Mar. 7-8.
While Mar. 14-15 is a time to commemorate our most recent developments as a church, we also plan to have a larger celebration in the fall after the entire project is completed. Yet, our purpose is beyond the building and even more clear! We’re committed to reaching the 92% of people in our region and show them the Life Worth Pursuing. This commitment also extends to our nation and world. We are grateful for the generous contributions of our donors and supporters of our purpose.
