Grace Connect

Grace Connect

Our desire is to see every person at Grace connected to others in the Body of Christ. To achieve this goal, we are launching Grace Connect, broadening our view of groups within Grace. Each group has different characteristics and involvement. 

Fellowship Groups

These groups are a way to get people at Grace who are “neighbors” to be able to connect through meals, game nights, kid’s sports, etc.

Life Groups

The focus of these groups is life on life relationships, disciple-making, and involvement in each other’s lives. They include prayer and the Word, applying these by life on life

Growth Groups

We need groups that help us grow in our study of God’s Word, digging into and applying it. We connect in this context to encourage others in the Word.

Ministry Groups

We can connect also with those at Grace by serving in ministry together. We hone our leadership skills and use our time and our gifts, and we encourage others in theirs.

 

Grace Connect Groups are magnetic. They draw new and even seasoned members into deeper and richer experiences of God’s grace in the gospel.

Why is this? Because Grace Groups are families of believers focused on the grace of God in Christ. And God’s grace is a force of gravity – moving mightily in people’s lives with Christ’s transforming power (Rom 6:14). Together we help each other move one step closer to Jesus as learners of Him.

Here’s the dynamic: Christ welcomes us into his family, so we eagerly welcome others to join us (Rom 15:7). Seeing our unconditional acceptance in the gospel, we freely share the depth of our weaknesses with one another (2 Cor 11:30). By the Holy Spirit’s power, our lives are changed, and instead of serving ourselves, we are compelled to serve one another (2 Cor 5:14). Being filled with all that Christ is for us in the gospel, we are propelled out into the world to love and serve our neighbors.
