a Young Church
Moving to the Ward
Moving to Mission Street
In 2009, the church moved again to its current home, the former Embers Restaurant. It has been a joy (and a lot of hard work!) to create multi-purpose spaces out of old places for our expanding Children’s Ministry, Worship Ministry, and a myriad of other ministries. With the move to a larger location, the church slowly expanded our hospitality ministry, Twelve17 Coffee Roasters which is primarily an in-reach ministry to our Grace Church family.
We’ve put out a ‘Welcome’ sign in the window to communicate that all of our ministries are available to those in need… whether that’s finding a new place to worship, a ministry for their children, teens, college students, or maybe just a quiet space to reflect or study. Our desire is that everyone who steps into the church building would feel welcomed and encouraged in their own journey with (or toward). We offer all of our ministries freely in Jesus’ Name.
A Heart for the Nations
Following an initial trip to Myanmar with Calvary Church of State College, PA in 2011, Grace Church sent several teams to Myanmar for extended stays to both learn the Burmese language and culture, and to pursue a sustainable way to serve in the country. As the Lord continues to lead, Grace is committed to establishing communities of faith in central Myanmar.
Grace in Myanmar
Teams sent to Myanmar have had the privilege of expressing Grace Church’s love in very practical ways to the most needy people of Myanmar. Ministry at a centrally-located orphanage has included creative children’s programs, chapel services, English language training, and Bible teachings designed teach the kids in a way they can understand.
We have also been able to assist the orphanage with a variety of financial needs over the years thanks to the faithful service of Grace Church’s Twelve17 Coffee ministry and generosity of many in our community.
