Welcome to Grace Church!
This site is intended to help you learn a little bit more about us and how to connect to the mission and ministries of our church. Whether you are just passing through, or God leads you to make Grace Church your home, our hope is that the information and resources within this site will strengthen and encourage you.

Whatever stage of life you are in, I believe you will encounter practical Bible teaching, authentic community, and meaningful ways to get plugged in here at Grace Pelham. I would love the opportunity to meet you and serve you in any way we can. Please stop by and introduce yourself to me or any of our campus staff after one of our weekend services or contact me via email or phone with any questions you may have.

God has given you unique gifts and abilities for the specific purpose of serving him and building up the church. Not only are you called by God to service, but Grace Church needs your help to fulfill our mission. We want you to “Make Your Mark” on Grace Church by finding where your gifts and passions align with the needs of the church.

What is a “Jump In”?
A jump-in is an opportunity to try a serving role out 1 time to see if your gifts and abilities align with the role. Some leadership roles do not have jump-ins.

Seasonal Giving Opportunities
Provide Financial Support for Cultural Trips
Since 2011, Grace has sent over 430 Allendale students on Cultural Trips. These trips have proven extremely effective in capturing the imagination of the students as they experience many firsts including: visiting the beach, the mountains, the state capital, college campuses, and even sitting down to be served at a restaurant. It is also an opportunity for our students from Grace Church to relationally connect with students from Allendale County. These trips cost $60 per student. Will you help us provide the financial resources to send 100 kids on trips next year? If you are interested in supporting Cultural Trips, put a check in our offering box in the foyer or click below to our online giving page. Please specify by putting “CE/Seasonal Offering” in the memo line.
