As you enter Grace Café Church, you know immediately that this is not your traditional church, as you are greeted by a gourmet coffee and breakfast bar and bookstore. Casually dressed people take their coffee and breakfast snacks into the meeting room of the church where they sit, not in pews, but at tables with chairs in a café setting. You will also notice the large aquarium and waterfall next to the stage and are told it is their baptismal pool. The service begins with about 10 minutes of contemporary music. Next, pastor Carlton Rivers delivers a 25 to a 35-minute message. At the end of the message, each table of small groups is provided with a list of discussion questions. We understand that this is not for everyone, so some choose to stay for this time of discussion, while others choose to leave. This unusual worship service is flexible and designed to make everyone feel at home. We hope you will come and join us!
“Our desire is not to tell people how to live, but teach them who they are in Christ, and what He has already accomplished on their behalf. Right living flows out of right believing. We believe the church is known for what it is for, not what it is against.”

The church is located in the shopping center behind Smiles-R-Us building. Grace Cafe Church is in the back left corner of the Lake Carroll Mall.
The doors to the café open Sunday mornings at 9:30 am, and the meeting starts at 10am. The service ends around 10:45 am, which leaves plenty of time for small group discussion (for those who choose that option).
