April 2019

A few highlights from March

Next Steps: In March, we were once again able to share the history and outlook of Grace Community Church at our Next Steps gathering and we are thrilled to have 25 new members who share our mission, values and vision.  Congratulations and welcome to the Grace family!  

Baptism: Life change is happening at Grace!  19 people put their faith on display by taking part in Believer's Baptism.  The church is so excited to see so many of our friends and family take the step of publicly professing their faith in Jesus Christ through baptism!

Grace Special Warriors: Over 70 children with special needs, their families and tons of volunteers, packed out Grace on Friday, March 29th for our third annual Grace Special Warriors event.  It was an evening filled with both mobile and wheel chair obstacle courses, a caricaturist, a fire truck for kids to visit and food trucks too!  All participants received a t-shirt and medal at the award ceremony!
