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.

The Holy Catholic Church

By The Rev. Dr. Paul A. Leggett

Sunday, August 17, 2014

Series: The Apostle's Creed

Text:Matthew 16:13-19


Jesus is Lord of all.  His authority extends to everything.  Jesus, however, chooses to reveal himself principally in the church.  It is only the church that is the present Body of Christ on earth (Romans 12:5).  The church is defined by the confession that Jesus is “the Christ, the Son of the living God.”  No one comes to God apart from Jesus (John 14:6).  If we belong to Christ the church is not an option.  In fact, the church is essential.  It is only in the church that we know Jesus fully.  It is only in the church that we can defeat the powers of Death and Hades.  It is only in the church that we can truly discern God’s will.  The church however in this world is far from perfect.  Satan can be present within it, even within its leaders (Matthew 16:23).  Yet the church cannot fail because Jesus alone builds it (Matthew 16:18).

I Kings

I Kings 12-14: “The Return of the Golden Calf”

June 4, 2014

There is a conflict over the throne of Israel between Rehoboam, the son of Solomon and presumably the heir, and Jeroboam whom God has anointed in the place of Rehoboam because of his father Solomon’s apostasy.  The kingdom divides between the ten northern tribes given to Jeroboam and the tribes of Judah and Benjamin which remain under Rehoboam.  Yet all of Israel, including both kings, fall into apostasy and turn aside from the Lord.  God’s promise to David is sorely tested here.
