that seeks to welcome, include, transform;

where all may encounter God in community;

where we engage God's Word through:

      scripture, tradition, and reason

      with our ears, our hearts, and our minds;

where connections happen--with God

      and neighbor and one another.

Our Mission is to learn, teach, and live God's Word, uniting in a growing family of faith and sacramental tradition and actively including and loving all.


Thank you for visiting the Grace Church website. Grace is a welcoming and inclusive community of faith. Whether you are a person of steadfast faith or whether you wonder or question, you are welcome here. Come and see! Come by yourself or with a partner or spouse or your family. Come if you are young or not so young, with too much or too little to do, seeking peace or company. Travel with others on this amazing, challenging journey of our God-given and Spirit-lead life.

Lent Begins!

Ash Wednesday Services

Two services of Communion and the Imposition of Ashes will take place on February 26.

  • 7:30 am in the Grace Chapel

  • 7:00 pm in the Church

Sunday Worship

A quieter penitential liturgy that includes the Decalog (Ten Commandments), the use of Rite I without "alleluias" and processions, and simpler altar settings and more contemplative music. 

Soup and Study--Tuesdays at 6 pm

Each year during Lent, Grace Church joins with four other congregations for a meal and program. All sessions, beginning on March 3, will take place at the Galena United Methodist Church. A different church will host the dinner and the discussion each week.

     This year, we will use a book and video by Adam Hamilton, The Walk, and exploration of spiritual practices for those who wish to follow Jesus, to experience more of God in their lives, and to grow to become the people God wants them to be."

      All are welcome and there is no charge to attend. The student's book is available online or on Kindle.
