Thankful we started having drive-up, parking lot services as of May 17, 2020. 

 The Lord has blessed us through this time of Covid 19.  We gathered virtually on Zoom for teachings and fellowship for several weeks and we started small group, live meetings in the gym  with our masks on and social distancing was observed.  
We have most recently been meeting in the sanctuary at our normal meeting times.  We only sit in every other pew to help ensure we social distance.  We wear masks for the entire service and check temperatures at the door in order to keep our congregation as safe as possible
We anxiously await the time that everyone feels  safe enough to  join back together in God’s house to worship Him as before.  
Please join us on  Wednesday evening at 630 pm, Sunday 1000 am and Sunday evening at 600 pm
God Bless you all

Church History

Grace Community Church was formed in August 2003 in Fairplain, West Virginia. The first meeting was held in the McDonald’s Building at the Jackson County Fairgrounds. The name of the church was voted on by the attendees and was then passed. The church then moved to the old Sears building in Fairplain at the end of August of 2003. In November of the same year the church moved to the Hayes’ Building in Fairplain.  In 2006 the church broke ground on the current church building, Services began in the current church building in late 2006.

Grace Community Church

Our Mission & Vision


What a joy it is to introduce you to our church!
You will discover that our passion is to allow the Holy Spirit to move and provide a place where people just like you can have a life-changing experience with God. We are dedicated to spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ throughout our community with our ministry programs.
Our doors are wide open to people from all backgrounds, regardless of where you are on your spiritual journey. Our goal is to Infuse God’s love into people and families through engaging, powerful worship services and in offering biblical truth in today’s ever changing and fast paced world.
We’re striving to become the kind of church described in the King James Bible, where there’s relevant teaching, heart-felt worship, constant prayer, honest Christian friendships and compassionate care for those in need. In short, we’d like to have the kind of contagious Christianity that can influence and encourage the entire community through the word of God.
If you are in search of fellowship, a church that feels like home and congregation that feels like family, thank you for allowing us to help in your search. Also, if you are a committed Christ-follower who wants to sink the roots of your faith in God even deeper, we pray you have found a home here with us.
We invite you to visit our weekly services. We offer two services on Sunday, each week at 10:00 am and our evening worship service at 6:00 PM. We would also like to invite you to our Wednesday prayer service each Wednesday at 7:00 PM. I am sure you have noticed there is no end of service time listed. The only schedule we follow at Grace Community is that of the Holy Spirit. We pray that you find as much comfort in the Lord’s schedule as we do.
God Bless You,
Tim Parsons-Senior Pastor
