Who We Are

A Short History of Grace

Grace Presbyterian Church belongs to the Covenant Presbytery of the The Presbyterian Church in America (PCA). Our denomination is the largest conservative Reformed Church in North America and in the English-speaking world. Our presbytery is made up of pastors and churches from North Mississippi, West Tennessee, Arkansas, and Missouri. With a host of other confessional Presbyterian churches leaving the mainline Presbyterian Church, Grace Presbyterian Church formed and joined the PCA during the early 1970s. For now over forty years, Grace Church has had a witness in a region traditionally bereft of the reformed faith. However, we thank God that the reformed faith is growing once again in many more quarters of the Church than our denomination, and that there are now four PCA churches in our region. We pray that in forty years, if our Lord has not returned, that there will be many more!

What to Expect

We thank you for visiting our website and encourage you to visit on a Sunday. When you visit you will find the following:

• A congregation that is warm, inviting, and enjoys fellowship.
• A congregation that is multi-generational.
• A service grounded in God’s Word. We seek to read the Bible, sing the Bible, and preach the Bible.
• A congregation that is committed to the ordinary means of grace ministry.
• A strong Word ministry. Our pastor usually preaches through entire books of the Bible at a time, with the knowledge that God’s Word is sufficient and applicable to all aspects of our daily lives.
• Monthly celebration of the Lord’s Supper.
• Sunday school classes designed to teach us more about the Lord and His Word. Our children’s classes are all studying the whole Bible through the curriculum of One Story Ministries. Adult classes have studied The Attributes of God by AW Pink, The Holy Spirit by Sinclair Ferguson, The Truth Project with Del Tackett, Christian biographies, Praying with Paul by D.A. Carson, and more.
• Music that is God-honoring. Our goal is simple, Scriptural, and doctrinally-sound music. To this end, we use Colossians 3:16-17 as our guide: 

Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God. And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.
— Colossians 3:16-17 ESV

For this reason, we have a mixture of traditional and contemporary hymns, as well as Psalms in our worship.
