Welcome to the Grace United Methodist Church website! Please
explore it as you have the time and do ask questions! If you want to
participate in some or all of what we offer, please feel free
to do so.
Grace Church is an urban church set in West Center City,
Wilmington, Delaware. It began 150 years ago as a mission outpost for Sunday
Schools. One purpose of Sunday schools in the late 1800s was to offer an
experience of grace and teach children how to read.
Involved in all sorts of missions to the community,
including Sojourners, Friendship House, food pantries, Neighborhood House, Emmanuel
Dining Room, and others, Grace Church continues its original mission through an
ongoing collaboration with a local elementary school, Stubbs Elementary, in
which members of the church connect with the school weekly. In each of these
ways in which the church seeks to serve the community, there is always room for
you to become an active participant! These are done, not for personal glory, or even to bring glory to Grace Church; but
so that the love of God revealed in Jesus Christ will be shared and
relationships will be formed!
Worship is on Sunday morning at 10:25 a.m. Each week there is a theme that is lifted up
in a thoughtful message of the day and inspirational music of soloists and
choirs. The Christian calendar is followed.
Small group opportunities are available in which you can meet with others who are
trying to figure out what God’s love means for them, and how this love leads
them to worship and serve in their homes, as the church, in the city and
Grace Church includes persons from all walks of life which
enhances the feeling that we are all a part of God’s kingdom here on earth!
Come and join us! Together with God we can figure out life!
