Welcome to Grace Anglican Church!

Whether you are unsure what a Christian faith is, new in your faith, a lifelong believer, or simply want to know more, we want you to feel right at home visiting with us. Our Sunday gatherings offer a unique style of worship that blends traditional and contemporary music, prayer, and biblical teaching in the framework of our rich Anglican liturgy and history.  We invite you to visit all our services to determine which one is the best fit for you.

What to expect

The best way to understand the warmth and hospitality of Grace Anglican Church is to come and experience Grace Anglican Church. Come worship with us! Below you will find answers to common questions about what to expect at Grace Anglican Church.

What should I wear?

We strive to provide a warm, family-friendly atmosphere that is both authentic and welcoming. The attire of our congregation varies from casual to more formal, based on the preferences of individuals. Whether you are most comfortable in your "sunday best" or in a cozy pair of jeans, you'll fit right in! God is far more interested in our hearts than our wardrobe. We're just honored and humbled that you've chosen to worship God with us!

Where should I park?

Follow the signs as you enter the property and you will find the parking lot on the left. 

Where is the Welcome Tent and the Sanctuary?

Follow the signs from the parking lot that direct you to the sanctuary. As you approach the sanctuary,  members of our welcome team will greet you at the "Welcome Tent" and will have information regarding the worship services, show you where to check-in your children for their age appropriate programs, and to answer any other questions you may have. 

What are the worship services like?

All of our services offer the four basic movements of the worship liturgy (gathering, word, table, and sending), but present them in differing ways. At their most basic level, you can expect each service to have praise music, a sermon or homily, and holy communion.

Our 7:45AM service is based on the 1928 Book of Common prayer communion liturgy. This intimate and contemplative service is appealing to many who have grown up worshiping using the classical prayers and predictable language of the 1928 prayer book.

Our 9:00AM service is a traditional Anglican service based on the 1979 Book of Common Prayer. For this service, our clergy dress in traditional vestments. The service begins with a processional hymn and choir accompaniment. This service has a bit of a formal atmosphere to it. Many families who enjoy a vibrant expression of traditional liturgical worship love the atmosphere, music, and familiar liturgy found in this service.

Our 11:00AM service is our contemporary service. Here, the clergy do not wear traditional vestments. While still rooted in the rich Anglican tradition, this service has a more relaxed, contemporary style. Music in this service is led by a band (guitar, bass, drums, and keyboard), and many parts of the service are done in varying and creative ways.
