About Grace:
 
We have been serving the Newport News, Virginia community for over 60 years.  Grace Church has two Sunday morning services.  Our early, praise service, begins in our chapel at 8:45 a.m., and our traditional worship service begins at 10:00 a.m.  We have a variety of Sunday School classes at 9:45 from September - June, with nursery care available at all of these times.  Directions and contact information can be found on the links to your left.
 
Being Christian involves being shaped by the language of the Christian tradition, including the Bible as the foundation of the tradition. Some people in this church understand Christian language quite literally and factually. Others understand it more symbolically and metaphorically. What we share is a common passion for the more-than-literal meaning of the stories and teachings that shape us. 
  
 
ALL ARE WELCOME! 
 
 Vision Statement
 
Celebrating God's love, seeking God's direction together.
 
 
Mission Statement
 
Grace United Methodist Church celebrates God's love by welcoming and caring for one another.
 
We seek God's direction through worship, by walking together in the image of Christ, by sharing what God is doing in our lives,
 
and by following Christ's example of humble service.
 
 
 We Welcome Everyone—Without Exception
 
Grace United Methodist Church celebrates that all people are made in the image of God, and we cherish the diversity God has created.
 
We intentionally welcome, affirm and encourage active participation by everyone regardless of sexual orientation,
 
gender identity, race, ethnicity, economic status, physical and mental ability, age, family makeup and education.
 
We are connected to one another by our faith in Jesus and his teachings to love and care
 
for each other, and this gives us the opportunity to worship, learn and fellowship together.
 
We are dedicated to advancing the inclusivity of United Methodist Churches.
 
 
The Church Leadership Team  (CLT), working with the Welcoming Task Group, has authorized a banner to express the inclusiveness of our church which reads “We Welcome Everyone, No Exception”. The colored flags were meant to draw attention to Grace’s commitment to welcoming all to worship and participate with us as we work to draw closer to God. The flags are not a permanent decoration at the church entrance. The United Methodist Church, over the years, has faced difficult and controversial issues; however, working together, we have never let those issues deter us from Christ’s challenge to spread his love and salvation to everyone.
  
We also have a Preschool and Play to Learn program which operates during the week in the Children's Wing.
