During the school year (November through March), we offer Taizé-style worship on the first Mondays of the month at 6:50 pm in the Sanctuary.  Taizé worship is a meditative time of reflection and prayer through silence and simple songs.  The pastors offer prayer and anointing with oil for those who wish to receive it.

Christmas Eve brings with it the Family Service at 5:00 pm and Candlelight and Communion Services at 8:00 and 11:00 pm each December.  The Family Service is a shorter time of worship that is particularly geared to be meaningful for both children and adults.  Nursery care is provided during all services for young children.

Easter and Holy Week are special times of worship at Grace UMC!  At 7:30 pm on both Maundy Thursday and Good Friday, we remember Jesus’ last days on earth with traditional worship services.  On Holy Saturday, we have a Prayer Vigil that starts at on Good Friday at 8:30 pm and continues until Saturday at 6:00 pm to remember God’s saving work throughout all of history and to be the first to welcome resurrection.  Easter Sunrise Service is at 6:30 am at the cemetery on the church grounds, and Easter Worship continues at 8:25 am, 9:45 am, and 11:00 am throughout the morning. Join us for an Easter Breakfast 7:30-8:30 am in the Fellowship Hall. All are welcome. Nursery care will be provide for all services except the Sunrise Service.
