Issues with "Church"
First of all, we get that the word “church” can really freak people out. You might have come from a bad church experience, or maybe you've never set foot inside a church. It's ok. All of us are at a different place on our journey. The important thing to know is that you can feel free to come to Grace no matter where you are and what you're going through. We won't judge you. We couldn't even if we wanted to, because none of us are perfect.
Here are some common questions/issues people seem to have with church. Have some of your own? Email us. We'd love to hear from you.
I’ve never really been to church.
So? That’s ok. We'll teach you the secret handshake when you get here. ;-)
I don’t want you to embarrass me.
Trust us: we won’t. You can fly completely under the radar if you choose. You won’t be asked to stand up, wear a name tag, or anything like that. We do have a gift that you can pick up after the service if you want, though!
You’ll bug me.
We’ll let our friendship develop at your pace, not ours. We really mean it.
I’ve been on my faith journey for awhile; you’ll bore me.
Grace will challenge you to new levels of growth. Plus, you’ll find opportunities in a creative environment to serve others, strengthen relationships and grow deeper in your connection to God.
Are you throwing away everything about traditional church?
No. God’s word never changes. We just update the delivery method.
I need to clean up my life first before going to a church!
Nope. If that were true, none of us would be here.
