About Us

Who We Are

We are a community of people … imperfect, yet loved by God … who gather to worship God, revealed through Christ. We are committed to care for one another, and serve and inspire our neighbors and the world. 

We gather Sunday mornings for liturgical worship which includes energetic preaching, weekly Holy Communion, and an environment that is meaningful and fun.  On weekdays, our preschool is abuzz with kids and families, and we have youth group gatherings.

Our “Packs for Kids” ministry feeds over 75 families a week to our neighboring schools. We have weekly Women’s Bible studies and a Children’s Ministry message.  Harbour Pointe Christian Preschool is a vibrant ministry of Pointe of Grace. Outdoors we support a Kitchen Community Garden on the property and a designated Native Growth Protection Area. 

We support many community groups including Boy Scout Troop 189, AA Groups, Girl Scouts, and other worshiping communities. 

Our core values are pretty cool.  We love it when folks stop in. All are welcome at Pointe of Grace.

Pointe of Grace is a diverse congregation united by our
faith and love of Jesus Christ.
