Website Word of Grace Church
Word of Grace is a non-denominational church located in the town of Sheboygan Falls, WI, about an hour north of Milwaukee. The church is led by Lead Pastor Stephen Maris who came on as the Lead Pastor a little over a year ago, though has been a pastor on staff at Word of Grace for about 10 years. The church currently has two worship gatherings that are offered at 8:45a and 10:45a, both of which are identical with a modern worship style. Attendance currently runs around 450 each Sunday for their main worship gatherings. The church also offers online live-streaming for those who are unable to be present, as well as for those who are desiring to check out the church.
The church is extremely passionate about growing deeper in their relationship with Jesus through discipleship. Since Pastor Stephen took over as the Lead Pastor, there has been a refreshed focus and vision for the church and a deeper sense of team input on staff. The chemistry on staff has never been healthier as they strive to push each other to grow spiritually and closer together as a team.
