Our history

Grace Church began as a daughter church of the neighboring Evangelical Free Churches. We began in 1990 with five families, most of whom were from the Calvary Evangelical Free Church in Rochester. The core group first met as a Bible study fellowship in the Stewartville Community Center for about one year. Then the growing congregation moved to the Sportsman's Club where we met for services. In 1997 we moved into our new building at our present location on Highway 30, East of downtown Stewartville.  In 2006 we added a worship center with seating for 400 plus. In 2012 we added the student ministries wing on the north side of the building. On June 2, 2019 our first church plant was commissioned: Living Hope Community Church in Chatfield.
