Seeking to equip people to live as Christian disciples wherever God has placed them.


Welcome to Grace Presbyterian Church. We are a dynamic and diverse congregation who gather together in the name of Jesus Christ for worship, discipleship and service. As Christ’s followers we strive to grow in God’s love and show it in lives that are transformed, using the ageless truths of the Bible as our foundation.

Grace offers compelling opportunities for all ages from adult discipleship to choir to Sunday School and youth groups to service projects. Wherever you are in your faith pilgrimage, we hope you’ll join us and experience the life-changing message of the Gospel.

Facing Jesus:  Divine Training - “The Promise of the Spirit: Mercy”

By The Rev. Dr. Paul A. Leggett

Sunday, May 24, 2015 · Pentecost

Series: Facing Jesus

Text:I Timothy 1:12-17


Paul is preparing Timothy and all of us for the challenge of serving Christ in a sinful world.  At the end of the first chapter Paul reminded Timothy that the role of the law is to expose sin.  The world of ancient Ephesus as well as contemporary America does not want to hear about sin (as New York Times columnist, David Brooks, recently noted).  Yet sin is all too real.  It is a persistent force even in the life of the Christian.  Paul calls himself the foremost sinner (present tense).  We need to acknowledge the reality of sin in ourselves before we can address it in the world.  This is Pentecost Sunday when we celebrate the coming of the Holy Spirit.  The Spirit not only convicts the world of sin (John 16:8).  He communicates the mercy of God to us bringing us “rebirth and renewal” (Titus 3:5).  God’s mercy in Christ Jesus is the only solution to humanity’s sin problem.

The Epistle to the Ephesians

Ephesians 3:1-21: “God's Great Mystery”

May 20, 2015

Paul continues here to unfold the full nature of God’s cosmic plan of salvation. The picture is an overwhelming one.  It is rooted in Paul’s incredible view of grace, a view that we often find to be both comforting and disturbing.   God is doing something new in the gospel.  The Gentiles are fully included in God’s plan of salvation in Jesus Christ.  God’s grace leads to the love of Christ (Ephesians 3:19).  This love is not dependent on the law or any previous history of Israel or the Gentiles.  It is in reality a “new creation” (II Corinthians 5:17).
