What To Expect
What can I expect in worship?
Grace Chapel’s worship service is a traditional Presbyterian service. As a reformed body of faith, we believe that the reading and preaching of God’s Word is the climax of our service and our week. You can expect to hear relevant and biblical preaching that comes straight from God’s Word. During worship, you will have the opportunity to pray for our world, our community, and those in need, as well as personal prayers and confessions. We celebrate Communion (the Lord’s Supper) on the first Sunday of the month, as well as Maundy Thursday and various other times throughout the year. Our services last roughly an hour and begin at 10:30 am each Sunday.
At Grace Chapel, we seek to provide an authentic worship experience in which we’re all confronted with our brokenness, while at the same time being comforted by the good news of the gospel. We strive to tell everyone who worships with us that we can be remade people redeemed by the grace and mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Arriving at Grace Chapel
Our campus has three buildings – the administration building, the chapel, and the education building. The education building is on the eastern end of the campus with a covered drive-thru area out front. Our nursery and Sunday School classes for all ages are located in that building as well as our fellowship hall (if you’re looking for a cup of coffee). Our chapel is the building with the tall spire located somewhat in the middle of our campus. The church office is connected to the chapel by an enclosed breezeway and is on the western end of the campus closer to Fountains Blvd. There are signs near the entrances for both buildings that can help direct you as you arrive as well.
Is there Sunday School?
Yes! We believe that Sunday School is a place to go deeper in your faith. While our classes are all different in their studies, you will find a warm sense of community and fellowship along with careful study of God’s Word. Pre-K through 5th-grade children’s classes are located in Rooms 103, 106, and 108 in the education building. Youth (6th – 12th grade) meet in the Youth Room (Room 105). Adult Classes meet in Rooms 111 and 113 in the education building. Our Sunday School classes begin at 9:15 am.
Parking at Grace Chapel
There are no reserved parking spots at Grace Chapel, so you’re on a first-come-first-serve basis. If it’s raining, please feel free to use the covered drive-thru in front of the education building. We do ask that you refrain from parking in the handicapped spots that we have unless you require such a space. There is a ramp from the parking lot near the chapel entrance, or you can enter the chapel from one of the side entrances. Lastly, please park in marked spots instead of just making your own parking spot so that traffic can flow easily after worship.
What should I wear?
There’s no dress code at Grace Chapel; come wearing what you’re comfortable in. You’ll find some who dress up in suits and dresses, and others who dress down in shorts and jeans. No matter what you wear, you won’t feel out of place.
Where will my kids go?
Children ages 2 and under are welcome to stay in our nursery, which has a secure sign-in and a wonderful staff. The nursery is located in the education building just inside from the covered drive-thru. All of our volunteers and staff that work with children are trained and have undergone background checks.
During worship, all children are welcome to take an activity board from the table nearest the entrance to use during the service. After roughly 15-20 minutes in worship with their family, following the Children’s Sermon, children ages 3 through first grade will have the opportunity to leave and go to Children’s Church, where they will do a fun activity that teaches them about Christ in a more age-appropriate setting. Should a child want to remain in worship with their family, that’s not a problem. Families praising God together in corporate worship is a beautiful thing that we love to see.
