We’re a church for people that don’t “do” church with a community/family atmosphere. Our services are about an hour long, with excellent modern worship music that honors Jesus and hope-filled Bible teaching. We also offer Kids Church, so ages 6 weeks – 11 years old can enjoy a fun church experience of their own!  

Join us any weekend to process God at your own pace. You are loved, welcomed, and accepted here, no matter your background or story!

Service time:
Sundays at 10 am

Each congregation of Free Grace United is a distinct local church. They vary in size, demographics, and cultural aesthetics. Each has its own story, its own pastors, and its own ministries. In deciding which congregation to join, we encourage you to start by visiting the one closest to you.

We also offer these weekday ministry opportunities at Free Grace Eldora:

  • Wednesdays @ 7 pm: Free Grace Students (Discipleship for Grades 6-12)


Each of our churches are unique, which means that each church offers something a little different for kids during our weekend services. As our churches grow, we develop a church experience especially for them! (Read about Kids Church here.) Our mission at every church is to see your kids cross the line of faith and follow Jesus!


Ages 6 weeks – 4 years

Nursery available for kiddos ages 6 weeks – 4 years. Drop your kids off with caring, trained volunteers to play and hear a Bible story while you enjoy service. (You’re always welcome to bring your little ones with you to service if you prefer!)

Ages 4-11

Kids Church is available for school-age kids! We use Bible-based curriculum that includes age-appropriate discipleship through teaching, games, and crafts. We have a special focus on tangible aspects of discipleship – helping kids navigate their Bibles, pray in groups, use their gifts to serve others, build friendships, and share their faith – all while teaching the Gospel every week.

Big Church

Our services here are family-friendly – meaning that we encourage parents to choose the discipleship that works best for their family. You’re welcome to bring kiddos of any age into the adult service, if that’s what you prefer! We provide a kid version of the sermon notes with activities to help little brains stay focused. Kids benefit greatly from watching the adults in their lives worship Jesus.



Pastor Bill & Amanda have been married since 1998. They have 4 kids: Christopher (Riley), Spencer, Ethan, and Savannah. Christopher helps lead worship, Spencer just started a Youth Ministry in Eldora, and the others love to volunteer, too. It’s a family endeavor to serve Jesus! The Pitts have a heart for mentoring married couples and families/parenting, and they are so thankful God has called them to FGU Eldora. They love the people in the community and being part of a ministry that makes an eternal impact!
