GRACE COMMUNITY A UNITED METHODIST CONGREGATION WHERE WE MEET Grace small groups meet in various locations on the church campus. Most meetings take place in the Adult Classrooms in the main church building. These classrooms (A100, A101, A102 & A103) are located on the south end of the building near the church office. The Upper Room is located on the 2nd floor of the main building and is accessible via the stairs at the north end of the building or via elevator in the Grace Place children’s area. The Youth Warehouse is the brick building just south of the main building. The Altar Works building is gray, has bright blue doors and is located behind the Youth Warehouse. Parking is available in front of and on the sides of the both buildings.

If you have questions concerning small groups or are interested in starting a new small group at Grace, you may contact Pete Bollinger, Director of Adult Spiritual Formation, at or by calling the church office at 318-865-2070.
