Meet Grace Chapel
Grace Chapel is a non-denominational, multicultural church that welcomes everyone, no matter what your faith background or where you are on your spiritual journey. Our mission is simple ? discovering life with God for the good of the world. We are fully committed and passionate about helping people find and follow Jesus.
We?ve been around for quite a while ? since 1948 in fact, when four families in Lexington, Massachusetts met weekly in a home for a time of worship, Bible study, and prayer. These families had a heart and vision for reaching and serving people in the growing western suburbs of Boston. Since we incorporated in 1956, we?ve grown from a few dozen people in a rented space in Lexington to 4,000 people coming together for Sunday services and midweek programs across five campuses: Lexington, Wilmington, Watertown, East Lexington, and Foxboro. Our worship services are casual, contemporary, and upbeat and we offer great Sunday morning programs for kids and teens at all our locations.
