Thinking about visiting? Everything you need to know is right here...
Where are you located?
Our building is on Story Ave. near the corner of Frankfort Ave., about half a block from I-64. We are on a one way street that begins at the intersection of Brownsboro Rd. and Mellwood Ave.. We are on the left side of the street.
Where do I park?
Parking is available on either side of the street. There are handicapped spaces available directly in front of the church. We also offer valet parking; just pull up in front of the church and one of our members will greet you there beginning at 9:45 am. Additional parking is also available at the Vernon Club on the next block.
Is your building accessible?
Yes. There is a ramp located on the right side of the building and the lift to the bottom floor can be found in the back of the sanctuary by the front door.
What can I expect at your services?
We want you to feel comfortable at Grace Immanuel, so just come as you are and be yourself. Our services are relaxed and feature a variety of musical styles, ranging from classic hymns to contemporary music. The service is easy to follow and there will be plenty of friendly folks to greet you.
What does "Open and Affirming" mean?
"Open and Affirming" is the language we use in the UCC to indicate that our church is open to all without regard to age, gender, ethnicity, economic or social status, physical or mental ability, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression.
Are my kids welcome in the service?
Absolutely! Near the beginning of the service the children get their own special lesson with the pastor. Afterward, kids 6 and younger may go to children's church with one of our volunteers. We also have a nursery available in the back hallway for kids under 3. All of our childcare volunteers have background checks done on a yearly basis.
Am I allowed to take communion?
We practice open communion and everyone is welcome to participate.
What is Coffee Break?
Every Sunday after the service, we gather downstairs for refreshments and fellowship. Please join us!

Someone is in the office Monday through Friday from 9 am until noon.
