PLAN A VISIT
There are many thoughts that go into visiting a new church, so we want you to feel right at home when you arrive. Here is some helpful information to plan of your visit.
Our mission at Grace is to “Build Strong Families Through The Word Of God; equipping them for the work of the ministry, and to evangelize the lost with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.” Our vision is to “Worship God Through Prayer, Praise, Proclamation of the Gospel, and Service.” You can view what we believe here.
We're Near Lackland Air Force Base
Grace is located at 2514 Observation Drive, off the West I-410 & U.S. 90 interchange near the Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio. You can find directions from any area here.
We Have Available Parking
We have four parking lots - the (Russ) lot next to the church, the (Brasfield) lot located south of Glider Ave, the (Starks) lot across the street west of Observation Dr. , and the (Ford) lot west of the Starks lot. Carts are available to transport you from the outside lots to the front entrance.
Come As You Are
We want you to join us for worship just the way you are. When you arrive on campus, you will see people in everything from suits and dresses to casual dress.
Bring your Children!!
We have The Truth Tent, a place for children from 3 years old (potty trained) through 12 years, split into three different groups – Elevate Jr (3-5 yrs.), Elevate (6-8 yrs.) and Elevate Sr. (9-11 yrs). The Truth Tent is located in the secured Multi-purpose Center (MPC) north of the Sanctuary. Sign in begins at 9:30 a.m.
For 13 year olds - High School, we have Circle of Trust, where teens are encouraged to be open and honest about where they are, and the things they face as teenagers today. In this space full of faith, fun, and fellowship, we strive to provide each of them with the necessary tools to be better Christians and citizens at home, school, church, and in the community. Circle of Trust meets in the MPC (Room #109) during the second half of service, following tithes & offering.
A designated Cry Room is located in the hallway. Here you can watch and hear the service while tending to the needs of your children 3 and under.
- **2nd and 5th Sundays is Youth and Family Worship Service, therefore, The Truth Tent & Circle of Trust will not meet.
Become A Member
An invitation to Christian Discipleship is offered following the Sunday Morning Sermon, Sunday School and Wednesday Night Bible Study. You can join by way of Baptism, Letter, or Christian Experience. We also offer Watch Care for those who are in the San Antonio area temporarily and are members of another church outside the local area.
Following this, you will attend a 4-week New Members Orientation class during the Sunday School hour to get you acclimated to Grace First Baptist Church.
