Grace Community Church of Riverside: To take Jesus Christ to lost people and lost people to Jesus Christ

We want you to feel at home so we've prepared some tips to help make your first visit to Grace less stressful.

Service Times
We have two Sunday morning services at 9:00 and 10:45 AM.

We’ve made every effort to make parking convenient. If you are handicapped, we have a number of spaces north of the building reserved for you. If you have children, elderly or handicapped with you, you are welcome to drop off your passengers at the curb in front of the Worship Center before parking.

We provide parking lot security during our Sunday morning services but still suggest that you lock your car and keep valuables out of sight.

Children's Programs
After the safety and security of your children, our main goal is to make learning about the Bible fun! While you enjoy a worship service designed for you, your children will enjoy an experience designed just for them. Enter our Family Life Center to check your children into their class(es). If you have any questions, ask an usher or anyone wearing a lanyard for directions to check-in (toddler to 6th grade).

All our teachers and care workers are vetted for their level of responsibility. Please feel free to ask to meet our director, Janet Ryerson, if you have any questions or concerns...or if you simply want to meet our dynamic "person in charge."

If you check an infant into the nursery, you will receive a pager so the care workers can notify you if there is any reason for concern. For families with new infants, we have a parent's room off the Worship Center lobby where you can enjoy the service while caring for your child. Just ask the ushers for directions.

Grace has great children’s programs. Take advantage of them. If you wish to bring your young child with you into the service, please sit near the back so you can move to the lobby if your child becomes a distraction to others.

Your Jr. High and High School children would attend the main service on Sunday mornings and then gather for High School and Jr. High activities on Wednesday nights at 7:00 PM, Fall through Spring. There, aside from having a great time, they can learn about the unique Sunday morning mentoring program, in which many of them participate.

What To Wear
We want you to feel comfortable joining us for a weekend service. People wear anything from shorts and sandals to business casual.

& more...
We offers donuts and coffee in the courtyard on Sunday mornings. Please help yourself and feel free to take your coffee into the service with you.

Our Gift To You
If you are a first-time visitor, please fill out the tear-off WELCOME form in the program and drop it into the offering bag near the end of the service. A gift will be sent to you by mail. That's ALL we will use your address for.

Don't feel obligated to put anything else in the offering bag. Grace is supported by those who call it "home."

Also, if you feel comfortable enough, please introduce yourself to Pastor Nathan after the service—he would love to meet you.

Come As You Are
You don't have to clean up your act to come to church. Christ accepts you just as you are and we can do no less since He accepts us the same way, just as we are.
