Grace, a United Methodist Congregation (founded in September 2001 as Liberty Crossings United Methodist Church) is a member of the North Alabama Conference of the United Methodist Church located on a 35-acre campus at 5125 Sicard Hollow Road near the back entrance to Liberty Park and adjacent to the Glenwood Autism and Behavioral Health Center. Dennis "Wade" Griffith II succeeded Keith Elder as pastor in 2010. Prior to being appointed as pastor in 2020, Tyler Christiansen served for several years as pastor of Mountain Chapel United Methodist Church.

From 2001 to 2007 the church met at Vestavia Hills Elementary School Liberty Park. Their new $9 million facility was completed in December 2007. The lofty, timber-trussed worship center doubles as a gymnasium. About 400 chairs are currently used for the worship setting, but the building can accommodate up to 1000 congregants.

Future plans for the campus include prayer trails, swings, benches, an open-air pavilion and an amphitheater.
