Plan Your Visit

What To Expect

Grace strives to create and foster a community that is welcoming and friendly. When you enter our front doors, you will be greeted by members of Grace who can answer any questions you have about our church. 

In the Narthex, you can find bulletins for the morning services, as well as children's bulletins, children's activity bags, and Assistive Listening devices. The restroom hallway is also attached to the Narthex. 

Join us for worship at either 8:30 or 11 AM. Our services run for about an hour. Call the Church Office for information about attending In-Person Worship.  Grace offers Live Streamed at 11:00 and Call In Conference to hear the service.

At 9:45 AM, we have fellowship hour in the Fellowship Hall, which was the original sanctuary of Grace. Help yourself to light refreshments and feel free to send your kids to one of our educational classes (see below). 


During the Sunday School hour, we have programs dedicated to the education and formation of children and youth. We currently have the following classes: 

  • Children, 3-year-olds - 1st grade, Wittenberg Room

  • Children, 2nd-4th graders, Bethany Classroom

  • Confirmation, 5th-7th graders, Library

During the Sunday service, we invited all kids to the front for a Children's Message. After, children are dismissed to learn, play, and do crafts and return to the sanctuary after the sermon concludes. 

During the pandemic, we are holding Children's Sunday School through the Zoom platform. Please call the church office (919-682-6030) for information on how to receive an invite to our Sunday School.

Mission Statement: We are called to Welcome Everyone to Walk the Way of GRACE, and walk in that way in our individual lives, in our shared life in our various communities, in our common life with our neighbors, and even to the world at large as God sends us. The Way of Grace is to: GROW with Jesus, REJOICE in God, ANSWER with hope, CARE for the neighbor, and EMBRACE community.

Vision Statement: God has a plan FOR OUR LIVES, and so we teach how to walk in the path of Jesus Christ; FOR OUR NEIGHBORHOODS, and so we work to build healthy and strong communities; FOR OUR CITY, and so we share life with our neighbors in Walltown, Trinity Park, Duke, and the Triangle; and FOR OUR WORLD, and so we go with Good News.

Core Values: Because God loves us first, we value worship rooted in Scripture and Sacraments, service to all people, and being a welcoming community that loves and forgives one another.
