CONNECT IN COMMUNITY

Connecting at Grace

When you get right down to it, life is about relationships. Real “community” tends to be rare in our lives, and it’s not usually something we “find” as much as something we create. The depth of our friendships will be primarily based on how “real” we are willing to be in our conversations with one another. To really grow in our relationship with God, it’s essential to be in real community with other Christ-followers. So, we want to do everything we can to create fun, safe and “easy to be in” environments of connection here at Grace.

 

Whether you’re looking for a small home-based environment, a men’s/women’s study group, or a group where you can explore your questions about faith, we have options to help you find your best fit. Check out the options to the left and find your next step to connecting at Grace.

MAKE AN IMPACT

We are here ON purpose and FOR a purpose. God prepared a good 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. This means we look to influence and impact the world around us for Jesus. Here at Grace, we recognize three primary spheres of impact:

• Personal

• Local

• Global

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 right 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.

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.

Each year we have one summertime church picnic and baptism celebration at a local lake. We also have several indoor baptism celebrations during worship gatherings.
