Mission and Vision

We are a Grace based Church located in Carrollton, Georgia. If you are looking for a different kind of church, we believe you will find a home with us.

Cafe Setting

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.

Casual Dress

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.

Community Outreach

Communities aren’t changed by programs but by relationships developed among the people in that community. In our missions work, we build and support relationships that inspire change.

World Vision

Grace Cafe Church helps fight poverty, provide relief, and bring freedom to the oppressed through partnerships with global organizations. We are working together to show Christ’s love to people all over the world.

….those who receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ.

What To Expect

A Church For People Who Don’t Do Church!

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.”

Pastor Carlton Rivers

Our Gatherings

Our Service is Different

DSC00385The coffee shop opens and people begin to come into the cafe area. Some get a bagel or muffin and a cup of coffee before gathering around tables in the main meeting area. At 10AM the gathering begins with a contemporary song followed by a grace-filled message about the finished work of the cross. The pastor sometimes stops in the middle of his message and asks the congregation to briefly discuss a topic from the message. At the end of most of the gatherings there are discussion questions handed out for those who wish to stay. There is much value in communicating with each other what the Spirit has spoken to each individual.


Children’s Ministry during the 10AM Grace Gathering…

Children (Grades 3 and under) go to their classes around

10:15AM right after the music program. The Nursery

(Birth to age 2) is open for the entire service.


Youth Ministry during the 10AM Grace Gathering…

Youth (Grade 4 and up) have their own hang outs in the main meeting area. There are alcoves for the 4-5th graders, 6-8th grades, and 9-12th graders. Each alcove is equipped with sofas, flat screens, and video games. When they arrive, they enjoy hanging out and playing video games. At 10AM the youth may remain in their own area, or join their parents or friends.

Your youth and children will love the set up at Grace Cafe Church!
