Our ministries exist to equip the members of Grace Community Church for the work of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up and God glorified in the lives of His children. We equip our members through a variety of ministries such as those listed below. Please explore each ministry’s web page to learn more about the specific ministry.

Grace Life

We believe that the Grace Life hour is the most significant time of biblical instruction and equipping alongside the morning worship service. Therefore we desire for Grace Life to be an effective tool for education, interaction, and application. This ministry offers two adult classes in ten-week sessions. Attendees may alternate between classes every ten weeks and choose topics that appeal to their current interests or needs. The name for each class reflects the general emphasis pursued by that class. The Discipleship for Life class focuses on topics related to applied theology such as parenting, marriage/family, financing, and counseling issues. The Theology for Life class focuses on key areas of Bible study such as systematic theology, individual Bible book studies, survey classes, and study methods.

Community Groups

Community groups, functioning as an extension of the local church, are assimilated with the purpose of promoting biblical application and spiritual edification through guided discussion, prayer, interpersonal reflection, and the development of deep and meaningful relationships with other believers. By cultivating this Christian community, believers are able to love and encourage one another, extend their worship of the Triune God and reach out to our communities with the Gospel.

Men's and Women's Ministries

Men of Grace

The purpose of the Men of Grace ministry is to equip, encourage, and exhort our men to follow Christ and fulfill His calling for their lives. We do this through a number of teaching and fellowship opportunities.

Ladies of Grace

The purpose of the Ladies of Grace ministry is to equip our ladies to grow in their relationship with Jesus Christ through Bible study, fellowship, and prayer, enabling us to better serve the Lord and each other.

Ladies Prayer Fellowship

Our Ladies’ Prayer Fellowship meets every Friday at 9:30am at someone’s home.

Student Ministry

“Like newborn babies, crave pure spiritual milk, so that by it you may grow up in your salvation.” (1 Peter 2:2, NIV)

The Student Ministry at Grace Community Church, which includes Grades 7 – 12, exists to shepherd the hearts of young people, so they may live faithful and uncompromising lives in the midst of an unbelieving world. Our desire at Grace Community Church is to train young people to rightly understand and apply God’s Word so that when trials, temptations, and triumphs come, they will respond in a manner honoring to the Lord. Our mission is to understand, enjoy, and share the worth, the supremacy, and the sufficiency of Jesus Christ in all things to the glory of God the Father and for the happiness of all mankind.

Children's Ministry

The Generations of Grace ministry is designed to come along side our parents and help further equip our children to learn about God through teaching, games, crafts and various activities.

Childcare During the Worship Service

Nursery care (newborn – age 2) is available during the entire worship service and children (ages 3 – 6) are dismissed prior to the sermon for the remainder of the worship service.

Nursery (newborn – age 2)

The nursery ministry seeks to minister to the youngest in our church family so parents can serve, fellowship, and worship unencumbered. Our nursery provides a caring environment with skilled supervision and a focus on early development using simple Bible songs, stories, and Scripture reading.

Children (age 3 – grade 6)

We are using a wonderful curriculum called Generations of Grace. This material is a biblically-based and God-centered curriculum designed for children from three years of age through the sixth grade. Over a three-year period, the curriculum will cover the historical books of the Old Testament, the life of Christ, and lessons from Acts and Revelation. It is broken down into three levels:

  • Early Childhood (ages 3-5)
  • Early Elementary (grades 1-3)
  • Juniors (grades 4-6)

Biblical Counseling

The purpose of our Discipleship Counseling ministry is to glorify God through discipleship and training within the context of the local church. The discipleship counseling received at GCC is based upon scriptural principles rather than principles of secular psychology or psychiatry.  When the principles of Scripture are understood and faithfully applied, we are confident that the Christian possesses all one needs for life and godliness (2 Peter 1:3, 2 Timothy 3:16-17).

Biblical counseling will be provided by one of our counselors under the supervision of the leadership of GCC. Our counselors are not trained or licensed as psychotherapists or mental health professionals and should not be expected to follow the methods of such specialists. Further, we strongly encourage same gender counseling. All discipleship counseling is done free of charge as a ministry of GCC, although part of the weekly homework assignments may require the purchase of materials that correspond to the counseling.
