We're sorry. We at GracePoint apologize if you have had a bad experience with church. The church has tried so hard to be cool, original, and sell everyone on their local "church," that somewhere in the process God ended up getting pushed to the background. That all stops here. Everyone is welcome at GracePoint regardless of what you think about church or God or religion. We started this church for people who don't really like church. This is a safe place for skeptics and doubters to ask their questions. We know lots of people have been burned by church experiences in the past. We hope this is a place where everyone can sort out authentic faith in a very real God and begin to experience it themselves. We look forward to meeting you and encourage you to take a look around the site.
We aren't for everyone but we are for anyone!
When people hear about Gracepoint from our regular attenders there is usually an awkward pause that surrounds the answer to, "where do you meet?' That pause comes because we meet at George's Majestic Lounge on Dickson Street (519 W Dickson St Fayetteville, AR 72701). Yes, we meet in a bar. Here are the primary reasons. 1) Low overhead cost and no need to purchase seats, sound, lights etc. 2) divided in a way that has allowed us to meet the needs of our kids and adults 3) tons of free parking in the Walton Arts Center lot and 4) instant name recognition and conversation starter.
Through this process we have found some things that define us as a unique community in NWA and meeting at Georges has allowed us to be real, to not put on an arrogance that isn't needed and to be inviting. The biggest downside to meeting at George's is that many of the people who would love our people the most are the ones who are trying desperately to stay away from the nightlife scene. The partnership with George's has been great and in the last year we have seen the garden get enclosed, stage expanded and heat and air installed.
