This is one of the largest churches in the Christian and Missionary Alliance denomination, with several thousand worshipers attending on a typical Sunday. The statement of belief is given on the church website ( http://gracecma.org/about/what-we-believe ), a listing of events and activities ( http://gracecma.org/connect ), and a greeting from Pastor Jonathan Schaeffer ( http://gracecma.org/new ). Worship is consistently contemporary, though the 8:45AM service tones-down the volume. A large percentage of the congregation had a heritage in main-line churches ( Catholic, Methodist, Presbyterian, etc. ) and were wooed by the teaching from the pulpit, the breadth of activities, and friendliness of congregation members. On the other hand, those who move on frequently cite a desire to return to a more intimate or traditional (hymns/liturgy) setting.
