The sign for Grace Baptist Church is visible right out front of our church building which is located at 1715 Royall Ave. As you drive in, first-time visitors are welcome to utilize the visitor parking spaces which are close to the main auditorium entrance. If needed, we also have handicapped parking spaces available.
What to Expect
As you enter into the main auditorium building, one of our hospitality greeters will meet you, show you where to go, and answer any questions you may have! You will also receive a guest packet of information and a gift from our church. We hope that you will feel welcome and encouraged during your visit with us!
Throughout the week, Grace Baptist Church offers services at three different times—Sunday morning, Sunday evening, and Wednesday evening. Each service is about an hour in length. Below you will find a brief description of what to expect during these services.
At 10:00 Sunday morning, we offer Sunday School classes for everyone! All classes are designed to emphasize the Word of God, so come expecting to hear a relevant Bible lesson that will be helpful to you as you strive to please the Lord every day!
Our Sunday Morning Worship Service begins at 11 AM. This service is filled with uplifting congregational singing and special music featuring our choir, ensembles and soloists to prepare us to hear the preaching of God’s Word. Pastor Stoeber preaches clear, helpful, and challenging Bible messages designed to encourage you in your walk with the Lord.
Join us again Sunday evening as we once again gather together to sing praises to the Lord and open the Bible together! The whole family is invited to sit in these services together!
The Wednesday evening service is designed to be a middle-of-the-week “refresher”! Whether you are coming in from a busy day at work or you have been at home with the kids all day, this time of the week is set aside to be a “boost” to get you through the rest of the week. We spend time singing together, praying together, and studying God’s Word together!
We welcome children of all ages at Grace Baptist Church! Our hospitality greeter will direct you to our nursery and children’s facilities upon your arrival. For additional information regarding our programs for children, please click here.
