Grace UMC Olathe

Grace is a vital and vibrant large congregation growing in faith and discipleship, and serving in mission and ministry with our community and world. Our 160+ years of commitment to the Olathe community gives us both a love of worship traditions and a passion for new, innovative ways of thinking about faith.

Loving God, living like Jesus, and serving the world

Grace UMC is a three-location congregation: our main worship building at Ridgeview, our missions center at Center of Grace, and a new extension campus, Common Grace, in Southwest Johnson County.

Learn about the Grace Prayer Labyrinth, and the current restoration process.

Grace will continue to be grace. That means nothing will change in our welcome of all people in all the different ways we are created and made by a loving and generous and merciful God. We do not believe God made some people less-than-worthy because of who they are and who they love.


— Pastor Nanette Roberts
