Our Fellowship meets in person Sundays at 11 a.m., with safety measures in place. (See below.) Services are in spacious Grace Fellowship Hall on our campus on the banks for the Heiferhorn Creek in north Columbus. It’s at 8827 Heiferhorn Way. We welcome people of all faith traditions and ethical systems, as long as these systems recognize and respect the dignity of all people.

Our motto: deeds before creeds.
