Church Description *

Grace Church began over 60 years ago with the faith of a small group of people with a heart for Christ and the city of Tracy, CA. Grace has grown over the years as they have faithfully shared Christ with children, youth and adults in their community. Over time the congregations of Grace Church have believed God for growing impact and given sacrificially to grow the staff and buildings.

In March of 2016, Grace moved in to their current ministry facility with over 25,000 square feet and room to grow as they continue to believe God to reach many in their community.
