You will find that along with worship and service to the Lord, we maintain a very active schedule for both our congregation and the surrounding community.

We look forward to seeing you soon!
God Bless! The Congregation of Grace United Methodist Church The Reverend Steve Williams is a native Missourian. His family moved a lot while he was growing up - probably a sure sign that God was preparing him for the itinerant ministry! He graduated high school in Festus, MO, and earned his undergraduate degree in Music Education from Webster College in St. Louis, MO. Steve taught vocal and instrumental music for four years in the North Nodaway School District (just north of Maryville, MO), before finally answering God’s call to the ordained ministry. He received his Master of Divinity from Saint Paul’s School of Theology in Kansas City in 1986. Steve has served the Sheridan UMC, in Sheridan, MO, Blue Springs First UMC (as an associate pastor), the Theodosia UMC, the Burnswick/Triplett/Prairie Chapel Charge, the Wesley Foundation Campus Ministry at what is now Truman State University in Kirksville, where he also served as a part time associate at Kirksville First UMC, the Valley Park/Lewis Chapel Charge, and Concord Trinity UMC (as an associate pastor). He is currently in his third year of serving as pastor of Grace United Methodist Church. Steve’s wife Rachel is also an ordained United Methodist Minister, currently on leave, and teaching at Owensville High School. Steve and Rachel have four children, and three grandchildren. Steve and Rachel lend their beautiful voices to the Chancel Choir at Grace and the Sullivan Community Choir, and Steve plays trombone in the “Sounds of Grace” Ensemble and the “Sullivan Brass Band”.
