Relationships are central to being a Christian. When we commit our lives to the glory of Christ, we immediately become a part of His family. Scripture describes God’s people as a body, where each member is essential to the well-being of the whole. We need one another.
However, as churches have become larger, maintaining essential relationships has become increasingly difficult. As a result, smaller groups become important. In every church there are naturally occurring relationships.
But there are also intentional small groups that are formed. These intentional groups are what we have chosen to call “Grace Groups”. In our groups we seek to encourage one another to be faithful to the Lord until He returns for us.
Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who promised is faithful, and let us consider how to stimulate one another to love and good deeds, not forsaking our own assembling together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another; and all the more, as you see the day drawing near.
-- Hebrews 10:23-25
This exhortation is at the heart of our Grace Group ministry. It is our desire that each member of a group seek to faithfully live this out in the context of their intentional community. Our goals for our Grace Groups seek to bring glory to God through relationships, character transformation and mission by applying the Bible to our lives
Our small groups, known as Grace Groups, form the backbone of spiritual body life here at Grace. These are groups of ten to fifteen people that meet on a weekly basis to discuss practical applications of the sermon to our lives.
Grace Groups are designed to be intergenerational, so that students, young families, and mature believers can interact together on a consistent basis. If you would like to join a Grace Group, please fill out the a Grace Group Registration form found on the visitors table. It may take a few weeks for registration to be processed.
