APRIL 2018

Easter at Grace: Almost 3500 people walked through our doors for one of the five Easter at Grace services, some for the very first time.  They got to experience impactful worship, creative video, fun Kids ministry, and a life-changing message. God is doing some phenomenal things and we pray that lives continue to be touched in a very real way by the love and grace of our Savior.

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

Brand New Weekend 

Saturday and Sunday, April 28th-29th  //  All Weekend Services

Men's Getaway Weekend

Friday, May 18th // 4:30pm  Sunday May 20th //  12:00noon

Registration continues through April 18th for our MoMENtum Men's Getaway Weekend to be held at beautiful Seven Springs Mountain Resort on Friday, May 18 through Sunday, May 20, 2018.  By God’s grace and guys taking the risk to invest in a weekend away, last Fall’s Men's Getaway Weekend was so impactful, the guys who attended wanted way more once they returned home! Thus, MoMENtum, Grace’s new men’s ministry, was launched.

So  join us as we continue the MoMENtum, with speakers, interactive breakout sessions, and intentional free time to connect or to be still…all geared towards building authentic and transparent relationships. Enjoy the same Grace culture you have come to truly appreciate being cultivated during this weekend away. This is the spirit and heart of how we do what we do! There will also be plenty of time to enjoy the Seven Springs Resort, be it a round of golf (more if you arrive early or stay late), participating in any of the other exciting activities the resort offers (additional costs apply) or just chilling in the mountains, take this valuable and fun step to meet other guys and begin to develop or deepen relationships. You too can take the step like the guys did last year, and see how God meets YOU where YOU are!

“…It was excellent. Much needed for me. I would clearly invite others to participate and build trusting relationships with each other.” Craig W.

REGISTER HERE by April 18th.
