What to Expect

We meet in an elementary school.

Our church service is at 9:30am at Wilder Elementary School. When you pull up to the school, don't worry; you're in the right place!

We’re a brand-new church.

We’ve only existed since September 2018, so we’re still figuring out what works best for us. Sometimes, things don’t work exactly the way we expect, but we worship our savior just the same. We’re flexible.

Things are easy to find and well-marked.

As you enter the front door, a welcome table with name tags will be in the foyer, bathrooms are down a hallway to the left, and the children's ministry and nursery are straight down the hallway directly in front of you. The worship service takes place in the gym, immediately to the right of the foyer. There is clear signage that will help you find your way.

We care about your kids.

Children of all ages are always welcome in the service; there are tables at which you can sit as a family and coloring sheets are provided. For your convenience, our nursery (which opens at 9:15) is available for children who have not yet started kindergarten. We have a computerized check-in system at the nursery; each child will receive a sticker with a unique alpha-numeric code that matches a sticker given to the parent. We have background-checked and trained nursery staff. The safety of your child is our first priority.

We are a "liturgical" church.

A "liturgy" means that the order in which we do worship is set for us; Anglicans have been worshiping in the same way for hundreds of years! Each week, we come before a holy God, confess our sins, read the Bible, hear the Good News about Jesus Christ, and celebrate God's forgiveness of our sins in Holy Communion, eating bread and drinking wine that symbolize Jesus' body and blood, broken and shed for us. There is a service bulletin available as you enter the gym that includes everything you'll need to participate fully in the service.

Come as you are.

People wear all different kinds of clothes to worship at Grace. Wear what makes you comfortable. You'll see everything from sports coats to shorts.

Our musical style is mixed.

Our music is piano-led, a mix of classic hymns and more contemporary praise songs.

Our service isn't too long.

Our service usually lasts just over an hour, starting at 9:30 and ending at around 10:40.

We have Sunday school and Adult Education.

During certain seasons, there is Sunday school and Adult Education beginning at 11am following our worship service. Nursery care continues during this time. After some time for coffee, cookies, and conversation, children (kindergarten through sixth grade) will meet in the Library while Adult Education takes place in the gym. Older youth (middle and high school students) are invited to our Adult Education offerings, which are intentionally planned to be accessible to them.
