Here’s what’s happening at Grace.
 
 
Children’s Ministry
 
 Your children are very important to us. Their issues are real and they desperately need hope. At Kids Connection we are committed to teach them how Bible Truth connects with their real life issues. We use God’s perfect Word to give hope and empower them to live life with confidence and courage.
 
Their safety is also important to us. All teachers and helpers have current security clearances and our children’s area is secured by state of the art video surveillance as well as a check-in/out system. We desire for parents to be able to leave their children in our care with the confidence that they will not only be safe but also be loved and taught what is true and right according to God’s Word.

Youth Group is designed for teens allowing them to participate in a safe environment where they can interact with their peers.  This ministry is designed for grades 6 thru 12 dealing with relevant issues that relates to their age group.
 
This ministry will lovingly challenge those who do not have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, to come to faith in Him and encourage Christian teens to worship, witness, serve, love and live for God with all their hearts, soul, mind and strength.
 
Sunday School meets in the Parsonage every Sunday at 9 AM.  Monthly events will be available.

We encourage our ladies in our church and their family to get together for special times of interaction. Our women’s groups, located in several locations throughout our community, are times of Bible study, prayer (and, of course, food). These groups provide a refreshing discipleship opportunity for the women in the church.

We exist to develop, equip and nurture men to cultivate Christ-like leaders for home, church, workplace and community.

Often, small groups of people are better able to interact and learn about a topic than larger groups are. For that reason, our church has small Bible studies held in member homes and on campus. The size of the group is anywhere from six to twelve people. At a time designated by your group leader, you can sign up for a small group study or just get more info by going to www.gracehub.info

Part of our growth process is learning from God’s Word together, in a more interactive way.  This can be achieved in Sunday School each week.  Classes are offered for all ages and meet at 9 AM each Sunday. 
  • Kids Connection with Nursery for children up to 5th Grade
  • Youth – 6th thru 12 Graders
  • Adults – Answers In Genesis along with a short-term Adult Sunday School on various topics,

Grace Bible Church ministers to the spiritual and material needs of our community through God’s Helping Hands Outlet.

The primary mission of this ministry is to lead clients to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ through our witness and testimonies.  Secondly, we try to be the hands and feet of Christ by meeting material of our community by providing men’s, women’s and children’s clothing, to those in need.

The outlet is now open to the public every Wednesday from 10 AM to 23PM and the 1st Saturday in March, June, September and December from 10AM to 2PM.  For questions or more information, email GHH.GBC12@comcast.net.

We are asking that everyone bring their own shopping bags as we will no longer keep any on hand.  Thank you.
