When and where are your services?
We have two campuses in the Clarksville area. The Rossview Campus meets on Sunday mornings at 9:00 a.m., 10:30 a.m., and 12:00 p.m. at Rossview High School, 1237 Rossview Road, which is just off Exit 8 on I-24. The Kenwood Campus meets on Sunday mornings at 10:30 p.m. at Kenwood High School, 251 East Pine Mountain Road, off of Peachers Mill Road.
Do you have plans to meet in a permanent facility?
Since April of 2007, we have met at Rossview High School, and since January of 2011, we have met at Kenwood High School as well. Both have been wonderful experiences. However, we do plan to one day have a permanent facility for both campuses that meets our growing needs as well as the needs of our community.
What are your Sunday services like?
The dress and atmosphere tends to be casual. You can wear jeans. You can wear a tie. It's your decision. The music is upbeat and full of energy. The messages are always centered on the Bible.
When should I arrive?
Plan to arrive 10 minutes prior to the start of the service. This is especially important if you have children. Checking in children to their age-appropriate environments takes a couple of extra minutes.
What do you offer for children?
Each Sunday morning, we offer age-appropriate environments where kids can be kids. Wonder Warehouse is for pre-school children. Cross Street is for K-3rd grade and Revolve is for 4th-5th grade. In all these environments, children have the truth of God communicated to them in a way they understand. Click here for details.
What do you offer for teenagers?
On Sunday mornings, teenagers are given opportunities to serve. These young men and women are vital parts of the weekend experience. On Wednesday nights, we have a place just for them: all middle school and high school students are invited to gather at St. Bethlehem Church on Dunbar Cave Road. There, they will find a worship gathering specifically tailored for them. Check out www.relevantstudents.com for details.
Do you have Sunday School or small groups?
We believe that lives are changed in the context of community. Because of that, we offer small groups. These groups of 12-15 people meet once a week in relaxing environments all over the city (most meet in homes). The Bible is discussed, friendships are made, and lives are changed. E-mail our Director of Small Groups here.
How do I get involved?
Everyone has gifts and talents. Those abilities have been given for the purpose of serving others. There are volunteer opportunities all over Grace Community. Joining a volunteer team is a great way to meet people and contribute to the mission of this church. If you would like to find a service opportunity that fits you, e-mail us here.
How do I become a member?
Church membership is not something the Bible commands. It is, however, a way for you to express your commitment to what God is doing at Grace Community. If you are interested in becoming a member, click HERE for more info.
What do you believe about baptism and the Lord's Supper?
We encourage all followers of Jesus to experience baptism. Periodically, we offer both on- and off-campus baptism opportunities and give an open invitation. We baptize by immersion because that was Jesus' model of baptism. Baptism is not salvation. It is a symbol of the new life that Jesus brings about within believers. For more info about baptism, click HERE.
We believe communion, or the Lord's Supper, is also a symbol. It symbolizes the body of Jesus that was sacrificed for us. We observe this ordinance throughout the year during our Sunday services.
Check out the "What We Believe" section on our site for further information on beliefs and doctrine.
How do people give financially to this church?
Each Sunday, during morning services, we receive an offering. These financial gifts enable this church to fulfill the mission and vision God has given it. The Old Testament references a "tithe," or "tenth," as an acceptable gift. The New Testament says little about this but does discuss giving in accordance to what God has given us. We believe that giving is a demonstration of faith in God. We are to give in a way that takes faith. See the "Give" tab for details about all methods of giving as well as online giving.
What is expected of me?
When you visit Grace, you will not be put on the spot. We will not single you out or require you to give us any information. After the service, we will not coming knocking on your door. We ask only that you allow us to be your host.
