Grace Church is a presbyterian church. The word presbyterian describes how the church is governed. Our church is led by men called elders (also known as presbyters). The pastor (also called a teaching elder or minister) together with ruling elders from the congregation make up the governing body of the local church, which is called the session. The pastor and ruling elders are elected by the members and work together to give spiritual direction based on the Word of God. We also have deacons who are responsible for meeting the physical needs of those of the church who may be in need.


Grace Church is currently seeking a new pastor. We are thankful for the many well-qualified ministers who have been willing to visit our church week after week to bring us God's Word during this period of transition.
