Welcome to Grace Presbyterian Church!

Grace Presbyterian Church longs to make the amazing grace of the good news of the gospel known. As we look at the brokenness around us, in our relationships, work, world, and even our own hearts, we oftentimes are left asking, Who will make this right…who can make me right? The good news is that though we are unable to fix, mend, and heal, God is both able and willing. GPC is not a place of people who have it together, but rather a place of those who are seeking God’s amazing grace.

Wherever you find yourself in this journey, we will walk with you as God transforms us together and magnifies his grace in and through us.

Holy Week Services 2023

Holy Week begins Sunday, April 2. Here is what is going on at Grace Kernersville.

What is Holy Week?

Holy Week refers to the week which begins with Palm Sunday and concludes on Easter Sunday during which the church remembers the events and words spoken by Jesus twenty centuries ago.

Why participate in Holy Week services?

As I’ve celebrated Easter over the years, it has grown increasingly difficult to capture all that Easter means during a single worship service on Easter Sunday. Emotionally, it feels like too much to take in: the anticipation at the meal on Thursday evening, the shock of the betrayal, denial, and abandonment, the devastation on Golgotha, the finality at the tomb on Friday, the silence of Saturday, and the thunderstruck hope and joy on Sunday. This year we will remember the events of Holy Week by celebrating Palm (or Passion) Sunday, Holy (or Maundy) Thursday, Good Friday (Tenebrae), and Resurrection (or Easter) Sunday. Both Palm Sunday and Resurrection Sunday will be celebrated during our regular worship times. In addition, we will hold special services on Thursday and Friday evening from 7-8pm.

What are the services?

  • Holy (Maundy) Thursday (7 pm on April 6)Sundown on Holy Thursday begins the Triduum (tree-do-‘em) or “three days.” Holy Thursday is oftentimes referred to as Maundy which is taken from the Latin “mandatum” or “commandment.” After washing his disciples’ feet and instituting the Lord’s Supper, Jesus told his disciples, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another (John 13:34).” On Holy Thursday, we will gather and recount Jesus’ last words to his disciples. Unlike previous years, we will not celebrate the Lord’s Supper, but we will wait until Easter Morning to receive the sacrament. The service concludes with recalling the betrayal of Jesus by Judas Iscariot.
  • Kernersville Cross Walk. The 36th Annual Good Friday Crosswalk will take place on April 7. Walkers gather in the Food Lion parking lot at 617 N. Main St. at 11:30am and depart at 12:00pm on a silent walk to Mt. Gur Cemetery. This event is sponsored by the Kernersville Christian Minister’s Fellowship
  • Good Friday or Tenebrae (7 pm on April 7). Tenebrae is Latin for “shadows.”  During the Good Friday service we will remember Jesus’ last words, his crucifixion, and death.
  • Resurrection (Easter) Sunday in the Sanctuary (10:30am on April 9)Resurrection Sunday celebrates the truth that the tomb was empty because the Lord Jesus had conquered sin and death by rising from dead. Jesus’ resurrection confirms for us that he is the Son of God, that he accomplished the work of saving his own, and that we too share in the hope of the resurrection and the promise of new life by our faith in him.

Gabe Adams Memorial Service

We have all been devastated by the tragic passing of Gabe Adams. I know all are concerned for and love the Adams family, and as we move through the week, to the service, and beyond, I am sure we all want to be of help. Because of the many communities which love the Adams, there are number of efforts underway to assist them during this time.

Concerning the Memorial Service, the Family will be receiving visitors at 2pm on Saturday, March 18. A Celebration of Life Service will be held at 3pm. There will be a light reception following the service for any who would like to stay. If you would like to sign the online registry, you may do so at Pierce-Jefferson’s memorial page for Gabe HERE.

Please note: we expect that the service will be full, and that parking may become an issue. If you are able, please carpool with others. As arrangements are being made for the possibility of overflow parking, we will update here.

Here are ways friends are helping.

The High Point University Community has set up a Meal Train for the Adams family which you may sign up for HERE.

The Wake Forest University Community has set up a GoFundMe page for the Adams family HERE.

In addition, Grace Presbyterian Church has established a Benevolence Fund for the Family to which you may make donations online HERE. If you prefer, you may send a check to Grace Presbyterian Church, 360 Hopkins Road, Kernersville, NC 27284. Please note “Adams Family” in the note.

Lastly, it has been wonderful to see the outpouring of help from all the communities who love the family. Thank you all!

Making Him Known 2023

Join together for Grace Kernersville’s Mission Weekend, Making Him Known, February 11 and 12.

On Saturday, February 11 we will gather for an international potluck dinner at 5:30pm followed by a brief service project to assemble “go bags” for those in need. These “go bags” are similar to what Chuck and Jimmie-Lynn Linkston share with the homeless in Asheville.
