Honoring Our Past

Through the life-changing testimony and vision of founding pastors Chuck & Sharon Giacinto, what began as a prayer meeting in their living room has blossomed into a fruitful church family and passionate community of faith.

Our Story Begins With a Miracle

Following a seven-year terminal illness, Sharon Giacinto was healed when close friend, Shirley Hart Krieger, boldly prayed. Her husband, Chuck Giacinto, was instantly delivered from alcoholism. With a passionate desire to share their newfound love for Jesus and to pray for others, they began a home prayer meeting often drawing more than one hundred people to their home twice a week. Listen to the complete story that birthed Grace Community Church.

Stepping Boldly Into Our Future

After 40 years, the mission remains the same: reaching out with God's redeeming love and miracle transforming power, bringing the Word of God to people of all ages and of all backgrounds. It is our passion to see Jesus glorified and ultimately win a harvest through the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We invite you to be a part of our future here at Grace.

Not a Building - But a People

At Grace we believe the church isn’t a building - it’s people. When those people know who they are in Christ and why they believe what they believe, together we can see real transformation in lives, in families, and in cities. Together as a community of faith, we can change the world around us for His Kingdom.
