if a grand parent has filed for grand parent rights, do they have to serve you or will you just get an order to appear?

In MY State - and all States aren't the same - you will be served. In the majority of States there is no such thing as Grandparents' rights.
IF the Grandparents were active in the lives of the Grandchildren the Courts attempt to mediate so that the children will continue to have contact. Mediate and order are two different things.
If this is following a divorce, the Court will undoubtedly deny the motion out of concern that the Grandparents will "bad mouth" the non-relative parent.
The other concern - if there is a problem with visitation with either birth parent - is that Grandparents attempt to get visitation so that their son/daughter still has contact, usually behind the parent's back.

Normally there are no such things as 'grandparents rights'.

You'll be served with a summons to appear in court. They're the same thing.
What a shame for the children that the adults in their lives are squabbling!
