Who We Are
On February 12, 1994 a group of believers met at the Peet Freight office to discuss the possibility of beginning a new congregation of believers in Woodstock. That night exactly 10 families committed to the call to begin a new work for the purpose of encouraging and equipping the saints to do the work of the ministry in reaching the lost.
The Farm Bureau building was rented for the 1st service, Sunday evening, February 20th, 1994. We voted that evening to pursue renting space in a building on McHenry Ave. across from Marion Central High School. The service February 27th was held in that building. We voted February 27th to call our congregation of believers "Grace Fellowship." Easter Sunday April 3, 1994 was our first morning service.
God continued to bless our congregation and led us to a larger facility where we began meeting on June 4, 1994. We remained in the D.B. Hess building on McConnell Rd. for several years as God continued to grow our congregation. During those years we looked at different properties to purchase. On April 28, 2001 we closed on the purchase of almost 5 acres of land on Cairns Ct. With a lot of work done by contractors, as well as people in the church, we were ready to move into the renovated building on July 22, 2001.
