Grace Presbyterian was formed in 1969 by the merger of Second Presbyterian and St. Matthew Presbyterian churches. A new campus was built on Ella Lee Lane. The Founders' Chapel, dedicated in 1978, contains items (stained glass, furniture, the Kimball organ, etc.) from the Second Presbyterian sanctuary.
