Visiting a church can be uncomfortable sometimes. At Grace you are going to experience something different.


Grace is a church where we are excited to see you! It’s a place where you can get connected to people that truly care about you. It’s a place to learn God’s Word and experience His life changing love for you. It’s a place to experience a fresh start in life. It’s a place of hope where if you have any kind of problem, you probably will find a person here that has already experienced the same thing and has seen God get them through it. None of us “have it all together” and most of us are new. Grace is a loving and diverse family. We look like a family reunion crossed with a United Nations meeting. Grace is a family that wants to connect with you.


Sunday Worship Services

Our Sunday morning worship service is one of the best times to experience what Grace Baptist Church is all about. The moment you walk in our doors you will be greeted with a smile. If you have little ones, our greeters will help show you where to go for the nursery. Older kids start the service with their families so they can worship together and they are then dismissed to Kid’s Church. Feel free to grab a coffee and bagel in our fellowship hall before you find a seat in our auditorium. When it comes to music, our style is a mix of new praise and worship music and the timeless old hymns of the faith. Our congregation really gets into the singing because our goal is that we don’t just listen to a performance from people on stage, but that we all participate together in worshiping God. Our Pastor, Jay Hartzell will preach a sermon straight out of the Bible. He loves to explain God’s Word and help people grow in their relationship with Jesus. At the end of the service we will have a time of response called an “invitation” where people can come up front to pray or meet with a counselor to help them trust Jesus as Savior. Most people that attend just one service here at Grace love it so much that they keep coming back again and again. We hope to see you soon.

First-Time Guest Common Questions

At Grace we have many young families with children. If you have infants-3 year olds you are welcome to put them in our recently updated nursery. At the 11am service families start together for the worship time and the children are dismissed to Kids Church in our fellowship hall. Of course visiting a new church can be intimidating to kids so you can accompany them to Kids Church or they are welcome to sit with you in the service.
Here at Grace we want everyone to be comfortable and come just as you are. You will see some people in their “Sunday best” and others will be “Florida Casual”.
Don’t worry! We are just a normal family of friendly South Floridians. We are not going to do anything weird or point out new guests publicly. You don’t have to know any special lingo or participate in activities you don’t understand. Feel free to just come and see what we are all about.
