Our Story

How it all started...

journey of faith and community, Grace Church began in the latter part of the 19th century. Hanover, PA was a growing industrial trade center and as a result became a hot spot for population growth. Grace was a missional endeavor of the Central Pennsylvania Conference of the United Evangelical Church. In a rented Sunday School house on York Street Grace church began with seven members to its charter (five adults and two children). To this day their rich heritage of missional faithfulness to the Gospel is evident in our DNA. Grace has called a few locations home as well as denominational belonging: Spring Ave at Locust Street 1901-1974 then to 55 Albright Dr. to present. We have been Evangelical United Brethren and are now United Methodist. Through all of the transformation and change we the people of Grace thrive because of our deep commitment to the Gospel mission of Jesus Christ. We preach with words and deeds the totality of who Jesus is that we may be the shining city on a hill, that we might be light, that we might be salt. We gather as a body of believers that are fully aware of our need for God’s grace in our lives, we praise God for who we are becoming as we live Christ each and every day, and look to the wonderful day of God’s completed work in the restoration of all things.

Expanding the vision...

Discipleship isn't a word but a way of living. Here at Grace Church we are committed to providing our faith family with opportunities for their own spiritual growth. We are all called to be disciples who make disciples. 

Where we are headed...

We are going out into the homes of our member, out into the community, and out into the world. We are a church deployed to engage all with the message of the Gospel through hands and feet ministry. We are going out to build relationships with the banner of Christ's love leading the way.
