NEWS & EVENTS
Back when communities were being built across our country, the common gathering place for meetings, education, community planning, sports and recreation were local churches. Over time, as automobile ownership became more common, activities that previously took place in churches could easily be held in other places. Churches no longer needed to provide the wide range of functions and services to the community as they had in the past.
Here in Long Beach, our community is placing a high value on environmental preservation, and driving as little as possible has become the new standard. Grace UMC & Community Center understands and supports this effort and aims to serve the community as its local gathering place. We can fulfill the needs of just about any group including indoor sports, weddings, special events, clubs and other social gatherings. Call us and let us know how we can become the ideal location for your community activity or event.
