Who We Are

We are a casual and contemporary church in Howard County, Maryland, driven by our mission to build disciples who pursue Christ, engage others, and impact the world.

What You Can Expect

Our weekend gatherings feature band-format worship and engaging teaching from God’s Word. We have programs for children of all ages, too.

There’s also something happening just about every day of the week at Grace. Check out what’s on the Calendar.

FAQS

When should I arrive?

We recommend coming 20 minutes before our gathering times, so you can enjoy free coffee, tea, and great conversations in our atrium. If you have children infants-5th grade, this will give you time to check them in to our GraceKids ministry as well.

What about parking/traffic?

We do have ample space in our parking lots on both the East and West sides of our building, but we’re also the church known for causing Sunday morning traffic jams at the roundabouts on 216. Here are some tips for avoiding the traffic:

  1. Use the Park n Ride lot across the road. Less hassle; more shade.
  2. If you take Highway 29 South, go one exit farther (#14) and double back on Old Columbia Road. It’s even easier to slip into a shady space in the Park n Ride lot.
  3. If you’re coming from the South, avoiding Hwy 216 is a bit trickier. Consider a scenic Sunday drive up New Hampshire/650 and cut your way East via Ednor>Browns Bridge>Lime Kiln to Scaggsville/216E.
  4. Come early, stay late. Free coffee in the atrium.
  5. Worship Saturday at 5:30pm.

Where do I go once I get there?

Before entering our auditorium, we invite you to stop by our Welcome Area at the East End of the lobby so we can meet you, give you a gift as our way of saying “thank you” for coming, and help you get connected to our body.  

If you have children, you can check them in at GraceKids:

  • totZone: infants-Pre-K (East lobby)
  • kidZone: K-5th grade (West lobby)

Middle and high school students are invited to join the Grace Students ministry in the Warehouse, a separate building on the West side of our main building.
