New to Grace Ridge Church?


There are many ways to connect with God and others at grc, but we realize it’s not always easy! Here are some places to start:

  • Fill out a Connect Card   so you can begin to receive a monthly email and updates via text. This will help you to know what’s happening. Filling out the Connect Card also means you will receive a call from a staff member to answer any questions you may have.

  • Attend FIRST STEP class where you will learn about the church, meet Pastor Lyle and have a chance to ask questions or sign up to participate in various areas, if you’d like.

  • Worship, Serve and Join a Bible Study! See below:


WORSHIP by attending Sunday Services

Worship services are one of the best ways to connect with others. We are all broken and sinful in one way or another…and that’s okay! We aren’t a church that’s looking for perfection. We recognize that God’s people have always struggled to stay on His path, but we also recognize that in a community of believers, we find encouragement, acceptance and growth.

Fellowship is a part of worship, as well. After the services, you are invited to LEVEL GROUNDS CAFE for coffee and snacks. This is a great opportunity to relax and get to know each other through God-honoring conversation. Kids play outside when the weather is nice!

WORSHIP by serving

We serve because Jesus served. We serve God together as a way to honor Him, as well as build relationships with others. Serving is a great way to get plugged into our church family. Do you like people? Technology? What about music? There are many opportunities to jump in and serve at GRC. From kids ministry or guest services to yard work or painting, you can join in and find joy in serving God with others. It’s a great way to get to know people, too! Some opportunities may require a larger time commitment, others may require you to be here for one service per month. We pray that you will find a place at grace ridge church that fits you perfectly.

WORSHIP by diving into the Bible

As a growing church committed to making disciples for Jesus, it is important that smaller groups of men and women gather on a regular basis to study God’s Word. Smaller group formats give us a better forum to ask questions and have discussions.
Discipleship Groups are usually two to four people, walking through life together as growing followers of Christ, learning together and holding each other accountable. They meet regularly for Bible study, discussion and prayer.
Small Group Study Groups are made up of around 5-10 people who delve into a study for several weeks at a time.
BSF Groups are groups of men or women who meet weekly from September to May for Bible Study. Bible Study Fellowship is a worldwide organization that provides solid biblical teaching materials and guidance for a small group format.


We pray you will feel welcomed and encouraged, transformed and excited!

We have a guest services team ready to greet you and answer any of your questions. As you arrive into the lobby, you may want to take a left to visit our cafe. We have coffee and lattes available before and after, as well as snacks after services!

Once inside the worship space (also called a gymnasium!!), you can either stop at the guest services desk at the back of the room or find a seat where you will feel comfortable. We hope that you will enjoy worshipping with us and that when you’re ready, you’ll jump into the GRC Church Family!


Our worship services last about an hour and include praising Our Lord through song, responding to His Grace with our tithes and offerings, and deepening our relationship with Him through a 30 minute sermon.   Don’t rush out, though!  We always have warm cookies, coffee & tea after our services.  It’s a great time to talk and ask questions or just relax!


Child care is available at both of our services for children preschool and younger. In order to provide the best care possible, our nursery caregivers have all state recommended clearances. We have a paid staff, consisting of two experienced women who are present each week and who provide a safe and loving environment. We provide a secure check in/out system for parents’ peace of mind. 

Kids Club is available for students in Preschool through 5th Grade and takes place at 10:30am on Sundays. (Drop off begins at 10:20 in the lobby). Our Kids Club program comes from GO! Curriculum and takes kids chronologically through the Bible, engaging them in a variety of activities and games. Parents pick up children in the lobby at 11:30.


Reverend Lyle’s preaching is Bible-based, relevant and easy to understand.  His messages are recorded each week and posted on our website. You can check out the worship music we sing on Spotify by searching Grace Ridge Church: Worship.


You’ll find that most men and women are dressed casually at our services. While some may be dressed up, many are wearing jeans, shorts and t-shirts. We’re not a church that worries about how you look on the outside! Whatever you’re wearing, we’ll be glad to see you!

We want you to feel welcome and comfortable, so read on for answers to common questions.
