After 7 1/2 years of holding weekly services at Hastings Middle School, the congregation of Upper Arlington Grace Brethren Church (known as UA Grace) has a place to call home. The Grand Opening service will be held at 10 a.m. on Palm Sunday, April 5.

The church purchased the property at 4065 Kenny Road on May 13, 2008. The 2.82-acre site with a 7,860-square-foot building is located near the corner of McCoy and Kenny Roads. It was formerly owned and occupied by the Christian Apostolic Church. UA Grace has renovated the facility over the last several months.

"Finding this property in Upper Arlington is definitely an answer to prayer," said Dave Bogue, senior pastor of UA Grace. "We searched for the right property for years and are very grateful to have a permanent location for our church. Our new church home will help us establish deeper roots in the community and be accessible throughout the week."

UA Grace was established in 2001 by several Upper Arlington families. The first service was held on Sept. 30, 2001, at Hastings Middle School. Since then, the congregation's weekly attendance has grown to approximately 180. Services are held Sunday at 10 a.m. Child care and children's Sunday School are offered.
