WHEN AND WHERE DO YOU MEET?

Saving Grace Church is located on Hospital Road in Indiana, PA, about a half mile south of the IUP campus. We gather on Sunday mornings at 10:00 a.m. for worship and usually end around 11:30 a.m. First we have corporate worship, followed by a short break, then we hear the teaching of God's Word. We also meet at various other times during the week. If you are an IUP student who needs a ride from campus on Sunday morning, we have rides available from Folger Dining Hall at 9:45 a.m.



WHAT IS THE CHURCH ATMOSPHERE?

Inside our doors, you will find a diverse group of people! We have single folks, young families, some college age, empty-nesters, seniors, and many children. Because we are a casual church you will find people in jeans and T-shirts, but also some wearing ties... and everything in between! After the service you will catch us hanging out for fellowship and drinking coffee from our free coffee bar. It's common to see folks quietly praying for others.


WHAT IS THE WORSHIP STYLE AT SGC?

We love to worship Jesus together! While our band often plays contemporary music, we sing some hymns too. What's most important to us about our worship is that it is directed at Jesus. We are intentional about making sure the words we sing are doctrinally sound. You may also notice a broad range of expression during worship.


WHAT DO YOU BELIEVE?

At Saving Grace Church, we are very excited about Jesus; His birth, life, death, resurrection, and His Word are our focus. We know that when checking out a church it's important to know their beliefs, so you can find ours here.

WHAT ABOUT MY KIDS?

At SGC, we love kids and take their safety very seriously! Kids are welcome to stay alongside parents or visit our Children's Ministry (Kids' Cove) available to kids age one through grade six. After signing your child up for Kids' Cove in the lobby each Sunday, you will receive a security card and any directions needed and will be informed of how we notify parents should a child need you during the service. Rest assured, our entire Kids' Cove staff have criminal and child abuse clearances. More info about our Children's Ministry/Kids' Cove can be found here.


WHAT ABOUT MY INFANT OR TODDLER?

It is common to see infants and toddlers in our church because we have a growing family! We open Kids’ Cove up early for kids ages 2-4, and love to have a special Wiggle Worship time with this age group. And if you are a mom looking for a quiet place to change your baby, feed your baby, or get refreshed, we have a Moms and Infants' room located next to our Kids' Cove. There you will also be able to hear the service.

WHAT KINDS OF THINGS DO YOU DO IN A BIGGER CHURCH?

Though our church is big for our area with around 400 in attendance on Sundays, we somehow manage to feel small due in part to our small group ministry. To find out more about our other ministries such as our adult, youth, and children's ministries, explore Ministries.


WHAT ABOUT PRAYER?

If you would like prayer, our prayer team is available every Sunday after church in the front of the main room. You may also email or call the church office.
