What to Expect

Service times, directions, and what to expect upon your first visit to Grace

New to Grace?

Getting to know each other

We know meeting someone for the first time can be intimidating, and going to a new church for the first time can be nerve-racking. We want to help make your first experience at Grace Community Church a great one!


  • Sundays at 9:00am and 11:00am


Grace Community Church is located at 450 Spanish Wells Road on Hilton Head Island, South Carolina. Find the location map by clicking here.

What can I expect?


In total, a Grace service is about 70 minutes in length. Services begin with the Worship Team leading the church in music - song lyrics are projected onto the screens so you can sing along and/or engage with worship however you feel most comfortable. After the music portion of the service is complete, the pastor will share an encouraging message.


Sundays at Grace are exciting, casual, and relaxed. Come as you are and expect to feel welcomed as our guest.

what is the style of your worship service?

Our weekend services consist of a friendly environment, blended music, and a message allowing you to authentically experience God.

what should i wear?

Whatever you normally wear. We are more concerned with meeting you than with what you wear. At Grace Community Church you’ll see nearly every style of clothing. Since we are located in a resort area people come in jeans, polo shirts, khakis, shorts, etc… so come dressed casual and comfortable.

where do i go when i first arrive on campus?

From the moment you pull onto campus, our parking team and greeters will help you find your way. If you have elementary age or younger children there are designated parking spots for you and your children to access the building a little easier. There is also a designated section for our guests. Our greeters will meet you at the door to help with directions for signing in children and/or where to go. Feel free to ask any of our volunteers and greeters for help or directions. We will be happy to help you.


We believe that kids should have a blast at church every single week - and at Grace Kids, we make this a priority. The other thing we make a priority is your children’s safety. Because of that, we have a detailed check-in process for our Grace Kids program the first time that you visit. You’ll want to leave yourself an extra ten minutes to get signed in for the Grace Kids experience. Grace Kids is offered for kids ages toddler through Grade 5.

what if my children need me while i'm in the service? How do i drop off and pick up my children?

Each week when your child checks in for children’s church you will receive a name tag that also serves as a security tag. They will be matching tags…one for the parent or caregiver and one for the child. If your child needs you during the service, our children’s ministry staff and volunteers will be able to find you in our worship center. The parent/caregiver tag and the matching child’s tag will also serve as a security in releasing the children with their parents/caregivers.

"Honestly, I was a little anxious attending Grace for the first time...a little unsure of what to expect. But as soon as I walked through the front doors it felt like home."
