Meet Grace Chapel
Grace Chapel is a non-denominational, multicultural church that welcomes everyone, no matter your faith background or where you are on your spiritual journey. Our mission is simple – discovering life with God for the good of the world. We are fully committed and passionate about helping people find and follow Jesus. We believe that life with God doesn’t just make our lives better; it makes us better for the world around us.
We’ve been around for quite a while – since 1948 in fact, when four families in Lexington, Massachusetts met weekly in a home for a time of worship, Bible study, and prayer. These families had a heart and vision for reaching and serving people in the growing suburbs of Boston. Incorporating in 1956, we’ve since grown from a few dozen people in a rented space to 4,000 people coming together for Sunday services and midweek, in-person programs across five campuses (Lexington, Wilmington, Watertown, East Lexington, and Foxboro, MA) and now an online campus. Our worship services are casual, innovative, contemporary, and upbeat and we offer great Sunday morning programs for kids and teens at all our locations. Learn more about Grace and our mission, vision and values on our website at www.grace.org.
