Children's Christmas Program
Entitled "My Gift For The Christ Child," the children of Grace UMC and Grace Child Development Center will be dressing up for a Nativity of Jesus enactment and Christmas carols! Join us on December 15th at 5:30!
Our 8:30 discussion is an adult course that imaginatively explores central topics of Christianity. In each session the group will watch a video featuring a leading voice from the Christian faith, spend time on personal reflection and journaling, and share ideas with the group. Each session delves into a faith topic: God, religion, Jesus, salvation, the cross, the Bible, and church.
Youth - Sundays @ 10:50am
Pastor Ed is leading a study on "Jesus Begins" for a generation that changes daily in room Y-1
Whiz Kids strives to improve the well-being of inner city youth through academic tutoring and positive mentoring relationships as well as communicating spiritual and moral values. Whiz Kids volunteers concentrate on self-esteem, reading, communication skills, goal-setting and character building. Tutors serve as mentors, friends and role models.
Skyline provides a host of resources for those in need in our community, and there are many ways that you can directly help them in their ministry! We have a Skyline donation box in Wesley Hall, near the south middle doors where you can donate items. They need many things, but foods such as peanut butter and cereal and canned goods (fruit, veggies, hearty soups, and meat) are needed most. If you or your group would like to volunteer with Skyline, they have sign-up sheets available on their website.
Mobile Meals of Oklahoma County
At Grace, we participate in providing meals to homebound elders living in our community in a coordinated effort with many other local organizations. Volunteers for this mission can help to prepare meals and aid in their delivery each Wednesday. For more information, please contact us at the church office!
Where We Stand
At Grace, we are Christians who are excited to be part of the United Methodist Church.
United Methodists hold to the historic doctrines of the Christian faith. We are evangelical, but moderates rather than fundamentalists. We value the intellect and modern science, while at the same time looking to the Bible as the authoritative guide for faith and practice. Methodists have a passionate faith with strong convictions, but we also recognize that the world is not always black and white. We are willing to ask questions, to wrestle with difficult issues, and to do so with grace and compassion. Methodists have been known for our emphasis on a personal faith, lived out in concrete ways in the world. We have historically valued well-informed and passionate preaching, worship that was lively, and small groups where people could grow in faith. Methodists have open hearts, and open minds - and welcome anyone interested in learning more about the Christian faith.
To build a Christian community where non-religious and nominally religious people are becoming deeply committed Christians.
Changing lives, transforming the community and renewing the mainline church.
Knowing, loving and serving God.
The following five broad areas
of ministry constitute the primary means of accomplishing
our purpose and vision. They are the historic elements of
the church′s mission: Worship, Evangelism, Service,
Discipleship and Fellowship.
Our first aim is to glorify God in worship; our second is to introduce people to Jesus Christ through evangelism; our third is to help persons of all ages to become deeply committed Christians through ministries of discipleship; our fourth is to build caring relationships and foster mutual ministry among the church family through authentic Christian fellowship; and finally, we aim to train, equip, inspire and mobilize members to live out their faith as salt and light outside the walls of the church through ministries of service.
It is our desire to honor God through our work on His behalf. To that end, we will do His work with the qualities we most value: integrity, grace, excellence, relevance, authenticity, passion, humility, faith, inclusivity, commitment, joy and love.
