Celebration Weekend

Saturday, September 22nd - Sunday, September 23rd

September 22-23 will be Celebration Weekend here at Grace, as we pause to reflect on the past, present, and future of Grace Community Church!  We want to celebrate the final mortgage payment on our existing building, honor all who attend and volunteer, and cast the vision as to what’s coming next.  Most importantly, we want to give God the glory for what He has done and continues to do in and through those who call Grace their home. There are still so many people that still need to hear the Good News of Jesus Christ so our work is not yet finished.

With this in mind, all offerings and tithes received from the weekend will be applied directly to the building fund for our Brand New Phase 2.

Kids Launch Weekend

Saturday, September 22nd - Sunday, September 23rd

Join Kids at Grace on September 22nd-23rd for Kids Launch Weekend! We will be kicking off the fall in grid iron fashion. Kids are encouraged to support their favorite team by wearing jerseys and fan gear. Invite a new friend and receive a gift for your child and their friend.
