Welcome to Worship – You are invited!
During this COVID-19 time our church services have moved to an online presence. A Grace United Church YouTube channel has been created. Sunday services and News You Can Use will be posted each Sunday by 10:00 am. On Wednesday “Grace Notes”, a reflection, will posted.
Grace United worships each Sunday at 10:00 am. We also offer special services during special seasons of the Church Year.
Why worship? Worship is essential for a healthy life and a healthy outlook on life, as the saying goes, “we are what we worship.” If we worship things that are temporary instead of eternal, we will eventually be disappointed. On the other hand, to worship God is to receive the blessings of hope, life and love so that we may in return be grateful stewards of that gift to ourselves, to our families and to our communities.
Grace’s rationale for worship can be summed up in the following story. A man once asked Jesus, “What do I have to do to receive those things that are eternal?” Jesus answered, “Worship the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, strength and mind, and do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” (Matthew 22: 37)
The man asked a question and received an answer. We too need to bring our questions to worship in order as we struggle to understand and live in an ever- increasing secular milieu.
During worship we offer praise and thanksgiving as we join the great quest of life. We hope you will join us along the journey of life. Following regular Worship please stay behind as we gather to enjoy fellowship and a cup of coffee. Tea and juice are also provided.
Sunday Morning Worship at Grace United Church is what most would call “traditional”. The format changes week to week, but the basic elements remain the same.
There is a Time for Learning for the young and young at heart and a special program for children that they can participate in after the first 15 minutes of the service.
Communion is served on the first Sunday of the month and everyone is invited to the table to partake in the sacrament. We celebrate with bread and grape juice (gluten-free wafers are also available).
Again, we hope you will join Grace United Church in worship. You are welcome!
Who are we
Grace United Church is a recently created church based on the amalgamation of Nelson, St. Stephen and Tansley United Churches. This was formalised by The United Church of Canada in April of 2020 and we have begun the work to see what our vision/mission is for our work in this North Burlington community.
