Grace Empire Grace Empire began with a vision to help refresh, revitalize, and restore the fed up, frustrated, and fatigued.  We know what it’s like to be lost, confused, and burned out on religion.  Grace Empire wants to help change that.  Here at GXE we believe we live in Jesus’ kingdom of love, hope, forgiveness and grace.  So we welcome you to join us at whatever spiritual stage your on.  We believe Jesus is the answer but the journey is different for each person. Grace Empire is a healthy, modern non-denominational church launching January 21st at 5pm. We are located off of Bruce B Down, 5 minutes from the Shops at Wiregrass.  Please visit us at GraceEmpire.life for more information

Bay Chapel - Bay Chapel exists to help people find God & find Life, through a relationship with Jesus Christ. The vision for Bay Chapel is a real and authentic community where people can find passionate worship, Christ-centered community, and a life-giving message. We believe that church should be a community that is relational. A place that helps people not only connect with God, but engages people in lasting relationships with others. We envision a place that invites people to come as they are, and receive the love and forgiveness of Jesus. Our services are every Sunday Morning at 9:30 am and 11:00 am. Our address is 9020 Imperial Oak Blvd
