Our vision is to create space for adults of all ages and stages of life to connect with God and with one another as they continue on their journey of transformational discipleship. Believing that the journey of discipleship is best walked in community, Grace UMC offers a wide variety of opportunities to gather for study, conversation, mission, and worship.
The Sunday School program at Grace UMC is vibrant and engaging! We constantly hear from new members that they knew Grace was their church home when they connected with one of our Sunday School classes.
Most Sunday morning groups meet in the main building or Oak Park Center between worship services, from 10:00 – 11:00 AM. Many of the Sunday morning groups also gather throughout the year for mission projects, church events, fellowship, and other ways of “doing life” together.

Bible and Topical Studies: New for 2020!
“Fierce” by Jennifer Cowert (Women’s study) – Tuesdays, 6:00 – 7:30 PM
What does it mean to be fierce? “Fierce” is trendy. It’s often used to describe women who are at the top of their game. But what about the rest of us? Can we be fierce? Absolutely! Join Lisa Boggs for this 6-week study about some of the lesser-known but no less fierce women in the Bible and the ways they changed the world by living into God’s calling. As we explore their stories, we’ll discover how we, too, can live into our callings, honor the Lord, and even change the world through our courage, faithfulness, and obedience.
