June 12-18 – MPACT Summer Mission Trip

MPACT Summer Mission Trip  |  Saturday, June 12 – Friday, June 18

The students are heading to Tolar, TX for MPACT this year. Andy and the students have had a stupendous time serving different communities in past years. Students, check with Andy and Sarah for more information about this coming trip. Those of us too old to participate this year, let’s pray for our youth. They’ll be working hard on projects to serve the community of Tolar. So pray for their safety. In the evenings, they’ll worship and listen to the Word being taught. Pray for the students to grow in their faith. Pray for the leaders as they shepherd, supervise, drive, and play hard! Contact Andy Whorton if you want more information.

Baptism Celebration  |  Sunday, June 27 during the Worship Service

Baptism celebrations are one of the pinnacles of our collective life as a church. We come together and celebrate new birth in Christ and welcome new members to the family. It’s pure joy. We are so excited to have a baptism service on the calendar. Something that’s been on hold since social distancing and mask wearing started! If you’d like to declare your faith in Christ to your friends, family, and church by following Christ’s instruction to be baptized, please contact one of the pastors, an elder, or your life group leader. Here’s a quick contact link. One of our leaders will get back to you quickly. If you have questions about baptism, please ask us. Baptism is an important step of discipleship. Though it, we obey Christ and declare our commitment to follow him to others.

Covenant Membership Class  |  Sunday, August 2 – Sunday, August 22 @ 9:00 am

If you’re interested in understand what we believe and how we live out our faith in this body, then we invite you to join us for a Covenant Membership Class. In this 4 week class, we dive into Scripture together as we explore theological issues that are central to faith in Christ. We then consider what it means to be a follower of Christ and how we live that out together at Grace. Childcare is available during the class. At the end of the class, you’ll be invited to become a member of Grace. Whether you’re ready to make that commitment or would like more time to decide, we encourage you to get to know us, what we believe, and who we are through this class.
If you are unable to attend this particular membership class but would like to attend in the future, please contact one of our pastors. A new class will be scheduled soon. Contact Christopher (, Andrew ( or Cindy ( so that we can be sure to keep you informed when the next class is scheduled.
