At Grace, we believe involvement is a key to developing Christian relationships and maturing in your spiritual life.
A large church is made up of many small communities of believers who come together to worship one Lord. People of all ages have a God-given need for healthy relationships with other believers. These can be developed by discovering common interests in a CrossRoads class, learning more about our faith together in a Ladies Bible Study, praying for one another in a Men’s group, encouraging others in the business world, or supporting one another in a time of personal crises. We want every person attending Grace to connect with the heart of the church; to feel at home and know they belong.
Serving God by serving people. It’s part of the mission statement that Grace was built upon, “…training the saints to do the work of the ministry.” Our desire is to help people get involved in God’s work in this world. We want to equip you with the skills, provide you with opportunities, and strengthen you spiritually, so that you can fulfill your purpose and glorify God.
Most of the serving ministries have a volunteer coordinator who oversees training and scheduling and makes sure information is communicated. In many areas, the commitment is light – generally just one or two services a month.
Doing “the work of the ministry” results in making an impact on the world around you. The world around you is the local church body, your family, neighborhood, and job. It extends beyond our nation’s borders. Whether it’s through prayer, counseling, local outreach, or a short term missions trip, you will be the hands and feet, the heart of Jesus, when you take the Word you learn weekly and apply it in serving others.
