children’s ministry

 

The central purpose of children’s ministry is to help children respond to our extraordinary God. Through our programs, curriculum and activities, we desire for children to recognize God’s presence, respond to his call, and grow deep roots of spiritual faith that will lay the foundation for life long discipleship and service.

 ANNUAL EVENTS

We have a collection of wild and crazy events throughout the year to have fun, provide opportunities to bring friends, and to develop lasting friendships. Some of our favorite are the Wii Tournament of Champions, The Glow-in-the-dark Treasure Hunt, our Easter Party, and more. We’re planning a new event this fall called Amazing Maze Madness. There will be people sized mazes, obstacle courses, and more! 

 SAFETY AND YOUR CHILDREN

We care deeply about the safety of your children. We want to partner with our parents to ensure that allergies and medical concerns are well managed while children are in our care. We run background checks on all volunteers and staff and keep this current. A large majority of our children’s volunteers have current CPR and First Aid certification. We have a safety team that works the building to keep all of us safe. And we don’t rest. We continue to do our best to keep up-to-date, ask questions, and look for ways to improve what we do to keep your children safe.

women’s ministry

Helping young women, mom’s, career women, grandmothers, sisters, daughters, aunts, and wives find their place in God’s story

 
The women’s ministry seeks to increase our passion for Jesus, purity of doctrine, and purpose in life.
 

WOMEN’S RETREAT

Stay tuned for the 2022 Retreat Info 
Each year, we get away for a weekend from the challenges, business and routine of life to immerse ourselves in teaching, worship, prayer, and fellowship.

WEEKLY ACTIVITIES

We* Bible Study  |  6:30 pm Wednesdays
On Wednesday nights, we study God’s Word. Currently, the men and women are meeting together on Wednesday nights for study. As the year progresses, the women and men will meet separately at times for study. The women have used Beth Moore studies, Stasi Eldredge books, and others. God has blessed this time abundantly as we dive into His Word together, find support from other women, and unit together in prayer. 

FELLOWSHIP AND DISCIPLESHIP

We enjoy connecting with each other, studying God’s Word, supporting each other in prayer, and serving others. Throughout the year, we have informal and fun gatherings to get together and build relationship, devotional and worship get togethers, and more. Young moms connect on the second Tuesday morning of each month at church for a play day with their children and a wonderful time of connecting with each other. Check out the Events page to see what’s scheduled.
 
 

men’s ministry

The vision of our Men’s Ministry is to equip and encourage men to take responsibility for the spiritual welfare of ourselves, our family, our church and our community, in that order, and to actively instill the same in other men.

  • Saturday morning men’s breakfast : We have great food and fellowship.
  • Annual weekend retreats: We seek God intensely, eat well, and play hard.
  • Third Thursday worknights: We support the deacons by helping with building repairs and maintenance.
  • Bible Study: Currently, our men and women are meeting together for Wednesday Night Adult Bible Study. During some times of the year, our men’s and women’s ministries host separate Bibles studies.  

OUR OBJECTIVES

  • To honor God
  • To provide education for men of God to achieve spiritual maturity
  • To provide a network of men of God with whom we can share common experience and knowledge
  • to provide opportunities to serve the Church and our community in a manner that inspires others to seek the heart of God

creatives team

Are you creative? Do you want to put that creativity to use? 

  

Then this team is for you! With the Creatives team we have a HUGE variety of ways to get involved and put your talents to use. From helping maintain our website, social media, and even helping create the right atmosphere that we want to have on Sunday Mornings. The purpose of this team is to lead people to become fully devoted followers of Christ through creating environments in which people can experience the presence of God. Creativity honors God and opens people’s hearts to the presence of God. We will try anything in a new, fresh way if it will help us reach people in our community. 

 

hospitality team

We want everyone who comes in the door at Grace to feel welcome.

We realize that visitors often make judgement about whether to come back within the first few seconds, yes seconds, of being here. Host team members are often that connection between visitors and the church, before a guest even sits in a seat at Grace. We also want our regular attenders to get a warm greeting as they come to church. 

 

Greeters 

These folks are positioned at the outside doors and the Worship Center doors where they welcome folks, show them where to take kids, where to find the bathrooms and coffee, and answer any questions they may have. They also help people find seats in the Worship Center.  Looking for guests and getting to know them is a big part of a greeter’s task on Sunday morning & a smile is key!
 

 

Hospitality 

This important group of  people  is  gifted  with hospitality. They organize  events  that  involve food.  Discovering  Grace, family  dinners, and special events need these folks’ particular attention.

Join the Team

Being on the Host Team is a great place to start serving in the Church. If you aren’t sure of your gifts, any one of the Host Team positions will have you meeting folks, shaking hands, answering questions or finding someone who can answer questions about Grace, and doing the things we are all called to do as serving believers in the local church.

prayer team

We have an amazing team of people who are passionate about praying for others. These individuals are gifted in discernment, intercession, wisdom, and compassion. They serve our body at the conclusion of the Sunday morning and other services by being available for prayer. They also meet with individuals for discrete, private prayer. This may be a one time session of intercession or a series of prayer times. Their goal is to help you connect with God for healing, restoration, guidance, or repentance.

 

Want Prayer?

If you would like to meet with the team for prayer, contact prayer@graceweb.net or talk with a prayer team member after service to arrange a meeting. the prayer team regularly meets at church on Tuesday nights, but other times can be arranged.
