LifeGroups are an opportunity to share life in Christ together with others in your area who have made GCC their home church. On average they meet 2 or 3 times a month, beginning the week after Labor Day continuing through May. Together, these small groups of adults talk, eat, laugh, pray and grow in faith while learning more about how Christ is relevant in our lives. LifeGroups seek to nurture spiritual growth and cultivate caring, lasting relationships with other believers as their members depend on the Lord to help them serve each other.
We feel called to serve the large and growing number of Hispanic families in our community in light of the language, cultural, and economic challenges that many face. We do so through English as a Second Language (ESL) classes, Bible studies, LifeGroups, corporate worship, and recently through our Grace Kids Soccer League. We believe that the best way to present the Gospel to our community is through our loving action, building relationships, and presenting Jesus to them.
God makes it clear in His Word that He has called the church to reach the nations with the good news of his Son, Jesus. Grace Community Church takes that very seriously and currently partners with about 15 missionaries and mission organizations around the world. We define missions as gospel-centered ministry that crosses barriers of distance, culture, and language in order to establish and strengthen the church outside the USA. We see ourselves as a Sending Church, and are focused on strengthening discipleship as preparation to go to the nations. We also offer opportunities to participate in missions from home through Advocacy Care Teams (ACTs) for each of our missionaries, adult Sunday school classes, short-term trips, and providing hospitality for visiting missionaries.
Grace is involved in a variety of outreach efforts, seeking to share the love of Christ with our local community. Projects include, but are not limited to, Griefshare support groups, kids soccer leagues, Operation Christmas Child, and our summer Kids Camp.
The GCC library contains thousands of resources, including books, audio, and video material for all ages. The library is located on the first floor, and is open most Sundays and Wednesdays. We offer online catalog access, renewal, and the ability to reserve items ahead of your visit. We offer a team of librarians to help you find items, and when requested, we will order materials to add to our inventory for the use, edification, and enjoyment of the congregation.
