We will greet you with a warm smile, and a sincere prayer that find a blessing in your visit. We’re located at 71st and Ogontz, near the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) on 20th Street. You can’t miss the big cross that light the way!
Where do I go?
Grace is very excited that you are considering visiting us at 7101 N.20th Street. We would like to personally greet you and help you and your family find your way around on your first visit with us.
If you come on Sunday morning, you will want to get to the Sanctuary. Enter the Narthex Stairway via the 20th Street or 71st Ave. doorway. Either door leads you to our signature “Stairway To Heaven” glass-enclosed front stairway. You will be greeted by a Grace UMC Family Usher, eager to direct you the rest of the way. Our delightful Ushers will seat you and happily give you a bulletin that contains the order of service. Enjoy the Worship Service!
Where do my kids go?
At Grace UMC, our worship service is open to all. We have Children’s Church as an option, which is held during the Morning Worship, for Children ages. When you know your children are in a loving and safe environment you can relax, allowing you to focus on worship and the Word. As an Usher to direct you.
What are the worship services like?
Worship at Grace UMC is not just what happens on Sunday morning. Worship Services is a praise time, each time we come together to celebrate each other’s blessings, even at our Wednesday Night Gospel Services! There is a sweet, sweet spirit in our worship services that words cannot begin to describe. There is a comfort like being in your favorite spot. Gentle, smiling faces are engrossed at preaching time. The Holy Spirit has its way, and only the Holy Spirit tells you how to worship. You only need to join us to know that worship services are indescribably sweet!
A variety of worship singers, soloists bring special selections as offerings of praise to our Lord. The praise dancers join in the service and glorify God through this ministry of worship through the arts.
The highlight of the worship service is when God speaks to the body through the Pastor. Pastor Pittman’s sermons are Word driven, instructive, and inspiring. Grace is the Place!
What do I wear?
If you prefer dressy, business, or casual attire, chances are there will be others dressed much like you no matter when you visit. Sure, Sunday mornings are a time when many prefer to dress up a bit, but even if jeans are more your style, you’ll be right at home with us. Naturally, Wednesday evenings are more casual than Sunday morning, but dress up or dress down, our worship service is not about us—it’s about praise and giving thanks!
Will I meet the Pastor?
Pastor Pittman would love to meet you! He is available after worship every Sunday morning to personally greet our guests and he cherishes the moments he gets to say hello.
If you would like a more in-depth visit with the Pastor, please call the church office at (215) 549-0619 to set up a time for a personal visit or a phone call. He loves emails (email@example.com)
How do I join or make some other commitment to Christ? What about my kids?
You may meet the Pastor at the front of the church at the Invitation to Discipleship part of the service when he opens the doors of the church. You may share your decision with the Pastor at that time.
You may also choose to contact the Pastor after the service has concluded, or contact him during the week. You can come by Christian experience, watch care, or a candidate for baptism. The Christ Servant Ministers’ will pray with you and give you all the information you need regardless of your decision. New member classes are held each Sunday.
God loves you and we care about you. If we can help, please call our church office, and speak directly with the Pastor or the Christ Servant Ministers.
Thanks for considering Grace United Methodist Church for Worship. We will keep the door open for you.
