Grace Community United Methodist Church was started in 1999 by families in Lithia with the support of the Florida Annual Conference of The United Methodist Church. Back then, we imagined a church that was truly welcoming to everyone - where everyone had a seat at the table regardless of personal history, family background, ethnicity, or gender. Grace Community hosted its first gathering in early 2000 at Lithia Springs Elementary.
