Sunday, September 11
10:30 a.m. at Bankers Life Fieldhouse
“They were all together in one place.” (Acts 2:1) Save the date for September 11 as we celebrate 25 years of Grace Church. This will be the first time in over a decade that Grace Church will meet all together, at one time, in one place. Together, we’ll take a look back at how far God has brought Grace and all of the miraculous ways He's moved through us. And we will look forward with anticipation to where God is leading us in this next chapter of Grace Church!
On Saturday, September 11 at 9:00 a.m., we will join together to pray circles around Bankers Life Fieldhouse for our 25th Anniversary event. Please meet us on the Plaza at the west entrance.
Tickets are now on sale. If you need to purchase ASL tickets, contact firstname.lastname@example.org. See below for info about LIFT section and language translation.
The password to purchase tickets: Grace25
It is $0.80 per ticket & a $2.00 processing fee per ORDER (regardless of # of tickets). Please note that tickets are what Ticketmaster charges and Grace will not profit from ticket sales for this event.
No limit on how many tickets can be ordered. Tickets are non-refundable.
You can select seats and the arena is fully in the round in all aspects. So, there will be video coverage on all sides, and equal distribution of people on all sides. We will not be favoring one side vs. another.
Tickets are available for pick up at willcall if needed
$5 parking passes will be available in the Grace Bookstore & Cafe starting the weekend of August 13/14
Subsidized parking passes are $5.
We have reserved parking garages close in proximity to Bankers Life Fieldhouse.
In order to park in one of these garages, you will need to purchase a $5 parking pass in the bookstore at 146th Street or the lobby at Fishers during weekend services. You can also visit the bookstore throughout the week to purchase your pass.
You will not be able to enter the reserved parking garages on the day of the event without one of these parking passes.
There is a Colts football game on September 11, meaning that most parking garages downtown will be charging their "event rates" for parking. Our subsidized tickets will be your cheapest option for parking on this day, but you must purchase parking passes prior to September 11!
Want to support your specific campus at the 25th Anniversary? We will have campus tshirts available for sale at both campuses this weekend for just $15. You can also pick them up in the 146th Street bookstore throughout the week. Please note, these shirts will not be available for sale at the event.

Q: Why should I come?
A: This is the one time we will come together as a church family - everyone, in one place, at one time (“…and they were all together in one place” – Acts 2:1b) – to celebrate, reflect, worship, and look forward together to where God is leading Grace in what is to come in our story! This is the first time in over a decade that we will be in one place together at the same time.
Q: What time does the event begin?
A: The event will begin at 10:30 a.m., Sunday, September 11. Doors will open at 8:00 and we will begin seating at 9:00.
Q: How long will the service be?
A: The service will be approximately 90 minutes.
Q: Does it cost money to go to this event?
A: Yes. To improve your experience, we wanted to provide you with reserved seating options. Because of this, Bankers Life Fieldhouse requires us to utilize Ticketmaster to distribute tickets for the event. We are pleased that Ticketmaster is only requiring us to charge $0.80 plus a $2.00 per order for processing (example: if you purchase two tickets, you will pay $3.60 for your order). Tickets for most Ticketmaster events are usually much more expensive. You can purchase tickets at ticketmaster.com or on this page. When purchasing tickets, you must enter Grace25 as the passcode. Tickets will also be available for sale the morning of the event at the Bankers Life Fieldhouse. However, we strongly recommend purchasing your tickets through Ticketmaster.
Q: Can I change my seats after I’ve already ordered tickets?
A: No. We are required to follow Ticketmaster guidelines for tickets for this event.
Q: Will there be childcare?
A: No, there isn’t childcare at this event. We want the whole family to enjoy the event together! However, there will be a “Wiggle Room” available in the “Legends” room if your kiddos are getting restless. You will be able to watch the service as it overlooks the arena.
Q: What about Grace’s disabilities ministry, LIFT?
A: There will be exclusive seating for our LIFT children and students! For information about this, please contact Natalie Brand at email@example.com.
Q: Where do I park?
A: We’ve reserved parking garages close to the arena. These are first-come-first-serve. If you’d like to purchase $5 parking passes for one of the garages, you can buy these in the Grace bookstore beginning August 13. These passes have been subsidized by Grace as part of this event. While you’re welcome to park in other garages or meters around the city, you will not be able to get into one of the reserved garages if you do not have a parking pass
Q: Can I bring food or drinks into the arena?
A: No. There will be select concessions open and for sale from 9:00 to 10:45 a.m. We’re also renting part of Georgia Street after the event to host food trucks for lunch! You can bring a bag/purse into the arena, but it will be inspected by Fieldhouse security. As a Bankers Life Fieldhouse security requirement, you’ll need to walk through metal detectors to enter the building.
Q: Will there be language translation?
A: Yes! There will be Spanish & Sign Language interpretation as well as devices available for the hearing impaired. The designated sign language section seating is 119 in the arena. To request a seat in this section, please contact Cyndy Parkman at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you’d like a listening device to hear a translation of the service in Spanish, or you’re hearing impaired, you can pick these up at the top of the stairs in the Bankers Life entrance at the Ushers’ table.
Q: Will there be something after the service?
A: Yes! We have rented parts of Georgia Street next to the arena for you to hang out, bring your family, and purchase lunch from food trucks from 12:00 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. There will be seating and tents available. Restrooms in the arena lobby will be available until 3:00 p.m. Please do not use local businesses! Bring your friends & family and let’s take the celebration out onto Georgia Street!
Q: Wait, isn’t there a Colts game that day?
A: Yes, there is a Colts football game at 4:15 p.m. that day. The game will not affect our celebration held earlier that day. However, this is one of the benefits of purchasing one of the reserved parking passes in the Grace Bookstore (see parking question above).
Q: Should I bring Green Bags to this event?
A: No, we will not be collecting Green Bags for the Care Center on this day.
We are excited to host food trucks for you to purchase lunch and enjoy near Bankers Life Fieldhouse. We invite you to hang out after service, mingle with our big Grace family and eat some yummy food. Don't get discouraged if there are long lines, that's part of the fun and will allow you the opportunity to meet a few new people along the way! Below is a list of food trucks participating in our 25th Anniversary post-service celebration.
There will also be a number of restaurants open after the service. If you would like to enjoy a sit down meal with your family and/or Grace community, check out a few of these options:
