In the spring of 2002, six families joined together to plant what would become Grace Christian Fellowship. Our intention was to add a gospel-centered, gospel-driven church utterly dependent upon the power of the Holy Spirit. We started in Mark William’s basement. Within a month we had moved to the Fireside Room at Fourth Memorial Church. A few months later we began meeting at the Eat Right Wedding Chapel on North Washington street.
The Early Years
During these early years, many curious people came to check out the new church in town. Some stayed, and with this loyal nucleus we began to put down roots and grow upward. Then, in the spring of 2004 we moved to Our Savior Lutheran on north Washington. A year later St. Paul’s Lutheran, at our current location on North Hamilton, contacted us with an offer to sell. In December of 2005 we purchased St. Paul’s and the Lutheran congregation moved to a different facility.
North Spokane Plant
In October of 2010 we were forced to move to two Sunday morning services due to our growth. In the fall of 2011 we leased space from Fourth Memorial Church for eight months so that we could go back to one service. In the Spring of 2012 we moved back to our facility on Hamilton with the goal of handling future growth by planting a north campus, something we have always wanted to do. In October of 2013 we launched GCF North with 150 people. Currently we are one church with two locations. To God belongs the praise, the honor, and the glory!
