Put simply, we’re here to help people fully follow Jesus Christ. That’s it.
In prayer about where to serve, Dave was reluctant at first to minister in his hometown. However, the desire to obey God’s leading increased in both Dave and Diane. Today, Grace Church is a friendly and compassionate group of people who are dedicated to serve needs in the community and devoted to love people from the most skeptical to the most committed. While we are anchored to the orthodox tenants of Christian faith, we are not afraid of embracing new approaches to help people connect with God. This is proving to be an exciting journey that God is using to bring life to people – even people who would say that they were once far from God!
Healthy teams are very important to us. Everything from serving children, to weekend service production, to small group fellowships, to community outreach…we try to do it all in and through quality teamwork. We call them “dream teams” and would love for you to consider being a part of one. You can find out more about these teams in the growth track.
