GracePoint Church has a long history of worship and service to the community. Shortly after the city of Coppell was founded in 1890, this church was founded in 1896 with 19 charter members as Coppell Baptist Church. The first building was erected and dedicated in 1901. The church remained in this first building until 1948, when a new building was erected in then downtown Coppell, at the intersection of what is now Bethel and Coppell Roads. In the early 1970s, the name was established as First Baptist Coppell and the church moved to its current location on Denton Tap Road. Through the years devoted, caring people have always stood ready to minister to the community in the name of Jesus Christ. That spirit of love, compassion and care that characterizes Jesus' ministry on the earth is alive, well and flourishing in GracePoint today.
9:30 AM Sunday Mornings Followed by Life Groups & Age Graded Ministries
Each and every event at GracePoint goes toward fulfilling our goal of sharing the Gospel with all men and helping them to become fully devoted followers of Christ. We have activities for the whole family.
Giving is an act of obedience, giving God back a little of what He has so graciously given us. Every week we have an offering in our service, but many find online giving a better option for their family. Click the links below to setup and monitor your online giving.
If you have an need, prayer request, question about the Bible or the church, we are here to walk alongside and help. If you need a church to call home, we hope you will come and visit us on Sunday morning or drop by the Ark or Church Office during the week. We truly strive to be the church where shame meets grace.
Planning a PEACE Pop-Up is Easy!! Use the Guide below as an Adult Group.
What is a PEACE Pop-Up?
It is a
spontaneous, highly interactive
experience with those in the community in order to brand the church as a fun
and loving presence in Coppell. The objective is to make connections with those who are
unfamiliar with the church (even Christianity) in order to gain a voice that
will allow us to invite them to our Sunday experience and other events, and ultimately to share the gospel.
Goals of a PEACE Pop-Up:
1) Did everyone
have fun? (volunteer & community members)
2) Did everyone who want one get a give-away?
3) Was it clear we were from GracePoint Church?
everyone get invited to a Sunday experience or other GracePoint event
How to Plan:
As an Adult Group or Ministry:
1) Choose a Location: Splash Pad, Kid Country, Neighborhood Park, Home, Apartment Complex*, Trailer Park*, Sports Fields, Senior Center, or better. 2) Choose a Give-Away: Bubbles, Coffee/Hot Coco, Popcicles/Ice Cream, Water/Lemonade, or better. 3) Choose When: Date, Start and End time (make sure it is a time when people are usually in this location) 4) HAVE YOUR POP-UP!
Hints for a Successful PEACE Pop-Up:
Have signs that say "FREE". People love free stuff and this way they will come to you, you don't have to solicit them.
Involve the whole family. Kids have an easier time making connections than adults often do.
Choose a location and give-away that you would love to go to and get.
Wear GracePoint gear so that it is clear where you are from.
Pray for the event, before the event and after. Pray for God to bring people and for boldness of the group to love on those God does bring. After thank God for those who came.
Remember this is about having fun, but also connecting. If you are just talking to people in your group, that is not meeting the purpose of this event. So be brave and start conversations with new people. You never know what connections you'll have (kids' school, favorite Starbucks drink, hometown, who knows!!)
