Our Vision

About Us


Since 1997, the people of Grace Christian Fellowship have pursued a relevant, honest, and life-changing faith in God. If you've been craving a meaningful, growing relationship with God, you're invited to join us in the journey.


Here are a few things we think are important to know about us:

We want to be a place where Jesus is more important than church politics, church ministries, and church rituals.

We want to be a place that provides a safe harbor for people who have been hurt and wounded by abusive churches.

We want to be a place that doesn't discriminate because of where you've attended church before - even if you've never attended church at all.


We want to be a place where worship - especially what we do on Sunday mornings - makes sense.

We want to be a place where people are more important than buildings and programs.

We want to be a place of love and acceptance - a place of GRACE.


When that mega-church starts to feel way too lonely ... It's time for Grace!


Pastor Ron Pic.jpg

Our pastor, Ron Benson, has been married to his wife, Linda, for 43 years and they live in Freeland. They have four grown children and one grandson. Ron has lived a great deal of his life within spitting distance of a church. His dad was a pastor, and Ron’s been a pastor for over 35 years. He’s served at Grace for twelve years. He knows a lot about church, but he wants to know more and more about Jesus. If you want to know more about Jesus, too, Grace might be a good place for you.
