What to Expect when you visit The Grace Place . . .
The Grace Place is a place where lots of different people feel comfortable and appreciated. Our common commitment is around the truth of the Bible and living lives that honor God and make our world a better place.
Our Saturday morning worship offers a more contemporary feel with room for your style. You’ll see people in their “church” clothes and others who are a little more casual. The music is a little more contemporary, usually with our praise team, G-Squared, and sometimes featuring a small vocal group with a band.

Excerpt from "I Am A Church Member" by Thom S. Rainer It was a big deal this young boy living in the small Southern Town. I didn’t know what a country club was, but I knew one was coming to town. And it included a swimming pool, a dining area, and meeting rooms. The owners also promised to build a small golf course, a promise they would fulfill a couple of years later. Now don’t get the wrong impression. This country club was not the typical upscale clubs we often envision. It was really a small private enterprise trying to make a few bucks in a small town by offering a few amenities. But I was overwhelmed. My parents were middle-class in income, so they could afford the small monthly fee. From my perspective, though, I had it made. I could now go to a swimming pool. I didn’t know of anyone who had their own pool in town, so this amenity was exciting. I could order a burger from the dining area. And we could have birthday parties in the pool or the meeting rooms. I began to learn a lesson. Membership means perks. Membership means privileges. Membership means others will serve me. Just pay the going rate, and you can have others taking care of you while you enjoy a life of leisure. And tragically, this understanding of membership is what many church members hold. “This is my church, so you have to play the music just the way I want it.” “Look pastor, you need to remember who pays your salary.” “If you don’t do this program, I’ll withhold my check to the church.” “I’ve been a member of this church for over thirty years, so I have a right to get what I want.” “I don’t pay good money to this church to listen to sermons that long.” Okay, you get the picture. Those unfortunately typical comments come from members of churches who have an unbiblical view of membership. Their view of membership is more aligned with country club membership. For them, membership is about receiving instead of giving, with country club membership. For them, membership is about receiving instead of giving, being served instead of serving, rights instead of responsibilities, and entitlements instead of sacrifices. This wrongful view of membership sees the tithes and offerings as membership dues that entitle members to a never-ending list of privileges and expectations, instead of an unconditional cheerful gift to God. So, what does the Bible say about church membership? I’m glad you asked. Membership means we are all necessary parts of the whole. Some church leaders and members view membership as a modern business or organizational concept, so they reject the label as unbiblical. Membership, to the contrary is very biblical. The Bible explains “members” differently than secular culture. For example, look at the term in 1 Corinthians 12:27-28: “Now you are the body of Christ, and individual members of it. And God has placed these in the church.” Membership means we are different but we still work together. With a country club membership you pay others to do the work for you. With church membership, everyone has a role or function. That is why some are hands, feet, ears, or eyes. We are all different, but we are necessary parts of the whole. The Bible makes it clear that if one part does not do its job, the whole body does not function well. But if one part does its job well, the whole body rejoices and is stronger: “So if one member suffers, all the members with it; if one member is honored, all the members rejoice with it” (1 Cor. 12:26). Membership means everything we say and do is based on a Biblical foundation of love. “Love is patient, love is kind. Love does not envy, is not boastful, is not conceited, does not act improperly, is not selfish, is not provoked, and does not keep a record of wrongs” (1 Cor. 13, 4-5). The principles of these two verses alone are sufficient to cause a revival in most churches! We are not to love fellow church members just because they are lovable. WE are to love the unlovable as well. We are not to pray for and encourage our pastors just when they are doing things we like. We are to pray for and encourage them when they do things we don’t like. We are not to serve the church only when others are joining in. We are to serve the church even if we are alone in doing so. Church membership is founded on love. Authentic, biblical, unconditional love. Church membership is functioning membership. Do you know how to remain a member of a country club? Pay your dues. Do that and people will be available to serve you. Do you know how to remain a biblical member of a church? Give abundantly and serve without hesitation. Biblical church membership gives without qualification. Biblical membership views the tithes and offerings as joyous giving. There are no strings attached. Biblical church membership serves and ministers as a natural way of doing things. [Because each of us is part of a larger body], each is suppose to function. The foot is to walk. The hand is to grasp and hold. The ear is to hear. The eye is to see. The nose is to smell. Such is the reason we are exhorted to know our gifts and abilities, so we can use them best to serve the church for the glory of God.
