Our Story

Grace Church was consecrated on July 7, 2013, as a vital merger between Christ United Methodist and First United Methodist churches in Bay City, Michigan. After much prayer, these two former congregations decided to join together to launch a brand new church and create a brand new legacy here in Bay City.

In February of 2016, Grace entered into a conversation with Fremont Avenue United Methodist Church about pursuing an adoption of that longstanding and historic congregation.  After much prayer, town halls, and two church votes, both Grace Church and Fremont Ave. UMC, by a wide margin, agreed to become one new church.

As of July 1, 2016, we are now Grace Church: One church in two locations; with a West Campus and East Campus.

While together we have a short history, the roots of Methodism go deep in the Bay City area.  Come by and check us out!
