About Grace North County

Thanks for stopping by. We hope you'll come worship with us at our Grace North County campus, serving the North County area. We are one church that meets on more than one campus. While each campus is unique we share a single vision . . . to help people find and follow Jesus. We invite you to join us.  

GraceNorthCounty is happening through a recent adoption merger with Berean Bible Fellowship in Atascadero. The people of Berean have been faithfully preaching God's Word and spreading the Gospel in the North County for over 45 years.  We see God's hand in bringing our churches together and together we are looking toward a bright future of new Gospel outreach in the communities of Santa Margarita, Atascadero, Templeton, and Paso Robles.  

This Summer we will be doing all we can to bring these two faith communities together through a variety of monthly connection events.  We are also assembling a launch team of committed people from both churches who are eager to make GraceNorthCounty a reality to reach their next-door neighbors and the next generation with the Good News of Jesus Christ. 

If you're interested in learning more about GraceNorthCounty or jumping in to help, please click the button above and fill out our interest form.  We'd love to hear from you!

Getting Here & Parking 

Our campus is located just off El Camino Real in South Atascadero at 9325 El Bordo Ave near Heilman Park. Check out the map below for directions. There is plenty of parking in the campus lot or on the street. 

Look for the directional banners to guide you to the worship service and GraceKids classes. If you need help, ask one of our greeters and they would love to get you to where you need to go!

Come as You Are

When you come to worship with us, you'll see some wearing shorts, some wearing suits and everything in between. Please wear what you are most comfortable wearing. Most people who worship with us dress pretty casually.  

What to Expect . . . 

A warm friendly welcome. You are our guest and our desire is that you feel our welcome.

A diverse, intergenerational church family. Grace is a place where college students, families and adults of all ages and life stages worship together. We welcome children in our worship services and encourage 'Family Worship.' 

Relevant systematic teaching from the Bible. We believe that the Bible is not a book of rules or a book of good advice, but a life-transforming and God-glorifying story of redemption that climaxes in the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus. 

Eclectic, Gospel-centered worship. Our music is varied and diverse, including a range of styles and instrumentation. While we value and sing classic hymns we also sing new contemporary songs and are always pursuing a balance of old and new.

Connecting 

Grace Central Coast is built upon a foundation of 50+ Growth Groups.  Growth Groups are groups of 6-12 adults who meet together for prayer, care, Bible study, serving and outreach.  Jumping into a Growth Group is the very best way to connect and get to know others at Grace and our highest priority beyond the worship service.

GraceKids 

We consider it a privilege and a joy to care for your kids. We take this responsibility seriously. We desire to provide your child with a safe, secure and loving environment where they can grow in the grace and knowledge of Jesus. We aim to partner with you in the joys and challenges of Biblical parenting and instruction. 

At Grace, we're committed to both 'age-integrated' and 'age-segregated' learning. What does that mean? 

On the one hand, we're committed to encouraging parents and children to worship and learn together by attending our worship services together. We call this 'Family Worship.' So bring your kids to worship with you at GraceNorthCounty. You will not be alone when you do.   

At the same time, we're committed to an excellent and multi-faceted Children's Ministry where children learn, grow and have fun in settings that are geared for them.

Safety is our highest priority.  

We know if you're worried, you won't be able to worship. We take the safety of all kids extremely seriously. All of our classes are staffed by loving and caring teachers who have gone through our extensive screening and fingerprinting process. No child is ever left alone with a single adult. Parents can worship worry-free knowing we will text or page them if their little one needs them.

  • Runny Nose
  • Fever
  • Cough
  • Diarrhea
  • Vomiting

GraceYouth

As we launch this new campus we are focusing on two main areas, Sunday Mornings and mid-week Growth Groups. As our campus develops and we approach our Fall launch, we will look to officially begin other ministries such as GraceYouth.

If you are a family looking for a place for your student to connect, please let us know! We have several young adults and married couples who would LOVE to connect with your student and help them follow Jesus.

What is a Growth Group?

Simply put, it's the best way to get involved and grow in your faith here at Grace.

Grace is a big place and it can be easy to get lost in the crowd. Growth Groups allow our big church to feel like a small church. They let us know and be known by others as we experience living the Gospel together. We truly believe that Gospel transformation happens in the context of small groups where real relationships can be experienced and deepened.


So how do they work and what are they for?

Growth Groups are groups of about 6-12 people who meet for 9 weeks at a time to do 4 things:

1. Grow.  These groups are the primary place for growth in our understanding of God's word. We gather each week to discuss the Sunday sermon and how God’s word changes our everyday lives. As we gather, we create safe spaces for people to ask questions about the Bible and when we do, we all grow together.

2. Pray.  Colossians 1:9 says, 'we have not ceased to pray for you, asking that you may be filled with the knowledge of His will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding.' We not only pray for one another's needs but also for each other's spiritual growth. We have the privilege to gather and come before God as a group and to pray throughout the week.

3. Care.  Growth Groups are the frontline for care at Grace. These groups are places where people can go and open up their lives to others. The Church is called to be a family, and so we care for each other that way.

4. Serve.  Not only do we Grow, Pray, and Care, but we also Serve! Serving with others is an amazing way to grow in your relationship with others and your relationship with God. Every Fall quarter our groups pray and plan so they can best serve those in our church and our community.

Growth Groups meet on a quarterly basis each Fall, Winter, and Spring with some groups meeting through the Summer as well.

Is it worth it? Here is what people at Grace are saying about
Growth Groups.

“When I first came to Grace in 2008 I knew one person, my sister. After a number of months, my wife and I joined a Growth Group of complete strangers. We were in that group for 5 years and now those people are some of our best friends. It literally changed our lives. We then led a young marrieds group at our home in SLO where we got to live life together and help couples navigate the early years of marriage. We're now looking forward to finding a new community in the North County. Growth Groups are a must. You can't afford not to join one!” - Pastor Miles Nelson


“​I'm at home most of the time with 4 little ones and it can be hard to get out and fellowship. by having a weekly meeting I am forced to be in community with others and no matter how difficult it is to prepare for, it is always worth it and I always feel blessed at the end of the night. Growth groups have given me friends in a season of life when meeting new people and developing relationships can be challenging.” - Jenny Nanninga, former Young Marrieds Growth Group Shepherd


“​Growth Groups are a great way to divert my thinking from all the tasks at hand, slow down and grow in my knowledge and love of God. It's also a great way to build relationships with the other believers involved.” - Dayton Muxlow, Cal Poly student, and former College Co-Ed Growth Group Shepherd
