Happy New Year!

Happy New Year from all of us at Grace Community Church!

A Christmas Recap

Christmas at Grace:  What an amazing time celebrating the birth of our Savior during our Christmas Eve services...the biggest attended services in Grace history! We love our volunteers and so appreciate the help from all who gave of their time at Christmas to help create the most wonderful environment for others to bump into Jesus!

SVSD Christmas Outreach: Thank you to everyone who donated to the Seneca Valley Christmas Outreach.  With your help, we were able to provide gifts to 500 students in K-12th Grade, representing 183 different families in our community. We were also able to pay that generosity forward to our ministry partners at the Lighthouse Foundation by donating to them the unclaimed gifts that we had.
