Next Steps/Connect - Grace Church

CONNECT IN COMMUNITY

We Gather and Connect to Share the Love of Jesus

Life is better when we’re together, so we encourage everyone to be connecting in community. We are taught through the Bible the importance of fellowship, prayer, worship and the breaking of bread together (Acts 2:42-47 is one example). During this time of social distancing it is all the more important to be connecting with and caring for each other! At Grace, we are all about loving people as Jesus loves. Praise God for the many opportunities and ways for us to live out our faith!

 

We encourage you to continue to gather and connect following safety guidelines in an act of loving your neighbor. We have both online and in person groups to choose from and are always looking to create more. A great place to start this journey is through Jump Start or to use our new small group search option which you can access here.

 

Cari Wolkerstorfer, Small Group Coordinator, is happy to help you through this process or to discuss how you can start leading a new small group. You can connect with Cari here.

 

Our church now has access to an extensive, video library called RightNow Media! It’s like the “Netflix of Video Bible Studies” and has a HUGE library of faith-based videos that you can access to provide ways for you to take next steps in your faith journey. If you would like to have access to this resource, let us know here.

 

If you feel like Grace Church is your home, maybe membership is for you! If you’d like to start a conversation about what membership is, please let us know here and Pastor Steve Crane will get in touch with you shortly. If you have already spoken with Pastor Steve and you’re ready to submit your application for membership you may use this link.

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.

The next Baptism weekend will be postponed for a future date to be determined.  If you are interested in being baptized, you need to attend the Baptism Class.  However, for the obvious reasons, a new date cannot be determined at this time.   If you’d like to explore if baptism is a next step for you, please contact Pastor Steve Crane
