Next Steps/Connect - Grace Church

CONNECT IN COMMUNITY

Find Jesus, Find Hope

At Grace our desire is to be a community that walks alongside one another as we find hope and life in Jesus. As we transition out of the Covid pandemic and into a new normal, how and where we connect with one another is in transition as well. That means that we connect with others in compassionate and caring ways whether it’s in person, online, with a mask, or without one.

 

We have many kinds of groups available. Some groups meet online, some at church, others in homes. Some groups focus on encouraging one another through prayer and growing in understanding of the Bible, others are more oriented toward serving others together, and still others focus on topics or activities to provide support and develop relationships helping us to live out our faith in the ways God instructs us through His Word. The best place to start is by letting us know you want to be in a group. There are several ways you can do that: chat with an online host, come to First Stop or the Info Hub after a Sunday service, or attend a MOVE workshop. Search the options to the left and we can help you connect with a group.

 

Abby Ahlberg and Cari Wolkerstorfer are happy to help you make a connection here at Grace. You can connect with Abby here. You can connect with Cari here.

OUTREACH

We are here ON purpose and FOR a purpose. God has a mission for you and me to be a part of! We are not called to live for ourselves, but for the higher purpose of God’s design. Click here to watch a short video about our Outreach Vision here at Grace.

 

Impact happens when we intentionally live in-step with God’s mission. We impact lives through involvement in various ministries at church as well as involvement in our neighborhoods, spheres of influence and world-wide initiatives. The links to the left will show you how you can take a next step to make a difference as you share and live out your faith in Jesus!

CARE AND COUNSELING

As a church family we want to celebrate the joys in your life with you, as well as to come alongside you with support, encouragement and prayer in life’s challenges. Family care and pastoral encouragement provides biblical counsel and encouragement to individuals, couples and families as needs arise. Contact Pastor Steve Crane to set up a time to meet with him. We can also help with referrals for outside agencies and counseling if desired.

 

 

We know these are very challenging times for everyone in our community.  If you would like us to pray for you, or if you have an urgent need for practical assistance, please click here and someone from our Care Team will get in touch with you.

BAPTISM

Baptism is a celebration of your new life as a Christian. It’s a time to publicly declare your faith in God and your decision to follow Jesus. Your immersion in the water tells the story of Jesus’ death, burial, and resurrection – the means of your salvation. Your friends, family, and church will gather to praise and worship God for his amazing gift and his work in your life.

Baptisms are held in during our worship services on a regular basis.  If you’d like to explore if baptism is a next step for you, please contact Pastor Steve Crane
