“I love my church because of the joy and love our church body has for each other and for visitors. I love my church because I am challenged to grow in my relationship with the Lord through teaching and through action. I am blessed to be surrounded by people who desire to work hard to grow God’s Kingdom!”
- Caroline

“I love my church because of all the opportunities to praise and worship the Lord. It is such a blessing to be a part of a church body that loves Jesus and has the heart to serve Him. I am so thankful for the love and fellowship in our church and its true Biblical teaching all these years.”

The people. Everyone is so friendly here. And (I love) the sermons.”
- Destiny

“Everyone has a real spiritual vibe. It is a real safe place to be.”
- Dylan

“I like the size of (ECGrace). Having been in a larger church that got up to 3-4000 people, I was volunteering all the time but found I didn't know anyone. I needed more than an hour or two in the week. I needed friendship, too. I love the people, the music, and the friendliness. This is a small enough church that you feel like you can get to know everyone.”
- Debbie

“We both immediately felt the love of the people (at ECGrace). We felt they were showing God’s love to us. It was obvious that it was a church where God’s Word was loved, taught, and practiced.”
- Edie and Edna

“I think above all is the [church's] desire to focus on the truth of the Bible. When I come to ECGrace, I know I am not getting a fluffy sermon, but I am getting the truth. Community is second to that. It is what brought me in.” - Hayden

“I love this church! I hate fake stuff and can sniff it out from a mile away, but every conversation I have had (at ECGrace) and every sermon I have listened to has been so real. There are a lot of churches that I don't feel safe in, but that is not the case here.”
- Jackson

“I love the outreach to the community, being a church on the move, and of course - the people!” - Leo

“I love this church because everyone is so loving and truly cares for one another. You do not get lost in the crowd as the people here want to actually get to know you and are happy to see you. It is nice that there are people at a similar stage of life as us, but also that more mature Christians are willing to pour into you. The environment and the people foster a willingness to share about what is going on in their lives and be genuine.” - Amanda

“I love this church because of the high priority placed on the truth found in the Word of God. The commitment to teaching, preaching, and living out such truth is so important to a church, and it is modeled beautifully at ECGrace! Because of this, you see a church body that loves one another and desires to grow and serve alongside one another! You will also be challenged in a Biblical way to grow and be a part of a church committed to following and obeying the Lord!” - Pastor Jacob

“We initially came to the church and were blown away by the warm congregation. We came from a church where it was difficult to get involved and connected. The willingness of several in the congregation to help us feel welcome really made us feel comfortable at the church and excited to come back. "We both distinctly remember the family atmosphere that was exuded from all upon first walking into the foyer. Since then, we have enjoyed creating many relationships with the congregation. Even though we have only been going to the church for 4 months, we feel like family at ECGrace.“

“We also love the preaching from the Word of God and the depth to the message every Sunday. Pastor Aaron (Woodruff) does an excellent job showing the accurate historical and cultural message from the passage he preaches about. Additionally, when we have had questions about his sermon, he was excited to talk about it, hear our opinions, and display his understanding of the subject. The Perch has been a great small group as well, and we have been blessed to be involved with Pastor Tom's teaching and events.”
- Paul and Natalia

“That first Sunday (we visited ECGrace), several people called us by name as we left. That meant a lot to Sue and me. It was the love of the people that drew us. But the most important thing that drew us to ECGrace was that this church is a praying church. I sense that God is moving here and wants to further His kingdom through the wonderful people of ECGrace. This church has solid preaching of the Word and opportunities to disciple and teach.” – Phil G.

“I love how welcoming and inviting everyone is. Beyond that, how people truly care and have continued to be intentional with me and helping me grow.”
- Rachael

“There are two things: one, we have felt very warmly welcomed there by the community, and two, I love that the central focus of the church is the things which are most important in Scripture – the gospel and the salvation of souls. The church keeps the main thing, the main thing.” – Ross C.

“I love this church because the people in the church are your friends. They know you on a different scale than most churches. We have like an 80% service for our church family where almost everyone is in some type of ministry. We're an easy-going church where people can come as they are not having to always dress up but still nice. So that's what I love.” – Ross W.

“I love the community here. I have never been part of a church that feels like such a family and supports each other.” - Samantha

 “I love my church because we stand firm on God’s word. I love my church because we are a church of action. We are given the opportunity to grow personally in Jesus, teach others about Jesus, tell others about Jesus and love others like Jesus. I love my church because we are a family, and all are welcome to be part of it.” - Scott

“The first time I attended, I was greeted at the door with a sincere welcome and enthusiasm from several people. That hasn't changed through today. I feel like I 'belong' here as a member of the Body of Christ. It's a wonderful feeling! And my soul is fed from God's Word through the preaching and studying of the Truth.” - Sue

“They are a great loving family. This church is filled with caring people.” - Zach

“(ECGrace) is so friendly. I love the fact that there are so many men here, young and old, who are of good Christian faith able to preach and able to teach. They are great people!” - Jeff

“I love how they are Bible-oriented. The laypeople are incredibly knowledgeable when it comes to Scripture.” – Phil P.

“It’s a body of believers committed to living out the Word of God. It is a church that stands upon truth and has a desire to love God and give Him glory in everything we do.”
- Taylor and Paige
