Grace Community Baptist Church
We hope you will have an opportunity to worship with us in the near future. Below is some helpful information. If you have additional questions, feel free to email us at
or call our church secretary, Sue Fields, at 502 361-2911 (Mon-Fri 9am-2pm).
As you walk through our doors, Greeters will be happy to help you find your way around. If you arrive before our 10:45am service begins please mingle, introduce yourself to others and get to know people attending the service.

What is provided for children during worship?
If you have children who are newborn to age two, we have a fully-staffed nursery available downstairs. If you have children age 3 through third grade, they may go downstairs to KidsWorship after the Children's Sermon, during the sermon. In either case, your child will be assigned a number, which will display on the screen to the left of the stage should your child need assistance. If it will be your child's first time in KidsWorship, please accompany him or her downstairs to assist in his process when the children are dismissed from the adult service.
During KidsWorship the children connect to God through song, praise, Bible study, prayer, service, drama and videos designed to deepen their relationship with Christ. KidsWorship ends simultaneously with the adult service.
How should I dress?
Folks dress in a variety of styles. Whether you are dressed casually in shorts, jeans with a t-shirt, bib overalls or in your "best" you will not feel out of place.
As a guest, do I need to give an offering?
No. We would appreciate you taking a moment to fill out the Connect Card in the backs of the pews so that we may have a record of your visit. We also welcome you to fill out the cards with any prayer requests you have so we are able to serve you by praying for those needs. When you are done filling out the card, hold onto it until the offering plates are passed later in the service. Please place the card - and nothing else - into the offering plate.
Do I have to stand a lot during the service?
No. We stand while singing our opening song, the songs before the sermon and the invitation song at the end of the service. If standing is difficult for you, please stay seated. If you get tired of standing while we are singing, please sit down.
Do I have to sing? What if I don't know the words?
If you prefer not to sing along you may simply listen. The words to each song are projected on the screen in the front of the sanctuary.
How can I become a member of Grace Community Baptist Church?
If you would like to become a member of this church - fantastic! We have three ways to indicate your interest in becoming a member. First is to mark a Connect Card and drop it in the offering plate. Second is to call the church office (502 361-2911) anytime Monday through Friday between 9am and 2pm. Third is to talk to our Pastor, Donnie, during the closing song at the end of the worship service. At your earliest convenience, he will set up an appointment with you to discuss church membership.
Where is Grace Community Baptist Church and what about parking?
The church is located on National Turnpike between Southside Drive and the Outer Loop. View directions and a map.
There is reserved guest parking in the marked spaces at the side of our building, but feel free to park anywhere in our large parking lots on the left side and behind the church.
What about safety and security?
We endeavor to be very safety and security conscious at GCBC and work to control the church environment as much as we can, particularly what goes on inside the building. You can help us maintain this awareness by being where you are supposed to be.
During class time and services, please be some place and not simply moving about the building. For Sunday School time, either be in a class or in the sanctuary. During worship, please refrain from going downstairs unless it is a serious need. No one should be roaming the building or be downstairs as nursery and KidsWorship are happening.
We are all here to worship and being in class or the church service at the proper times will make it easier on the individuals who are assigned to ensure the safety of everyone.
