Monthly Connect Meetings

You will find Grace Avenue United Methodist Church to be a very friendly and caring place.  We are here to “Make Disciples and Make a Difference through Jesus Christ”.

So you’re researching us online and are ready to visit a Grace Avenue UMC worship service. Whether you are planning on joining us in person or want to participate online, we know Sunday mornings can be hectic, so we hope you let us help ease your “trying a new church” anxieties.

We would love to give you a personal tour of the building, explain our different worship services, and just make sure you are comfortable and ready for the best experience possible.

One of our pastors, Karyl Patredis, can help you get connected at Grace Avenue. You can email her directly at, click the "Connect With Us" button above, or fill out the form below.  


We hold a monthly meeting called CONNECT as a time for us to get to know each other and share our stories.  For more information about the next scheduled event, please email for details.
