About Grace Community Church
In 2010 Grace Community Church started with just a handful of people, a small place to meet and a dream to grow a church that was fresh, real, powerful and relevant.
God was faithful and the church began to grow – eventually outgrowing its previous facility. Pastor Chip and the other leadership prayerfully decided to relocate to Lakewood Ranch – where Grace has continued to grow - going from 1 to 4 Weekend Services!
Grace Community Church is a non-denominational church that centers on having a real and vibrant relationship with Jesus Christ. If you are looking for a fun, real, non-traditional, life changing, applicable to life church that ministers to the entire family, then Grace Community Church might just be the place for you!
