Where Can I Serve?
Jesus told us, his disciples, to make disciples of all nations. One of the most important values of Grace Community Church is our mission to the world. It begins in our own community, and spreads overseas to every nation. Grace Community members are involved in a variety of ministries from things as simple as washing the church vehicles, to preparing the church bulletins.
Grace Community is thrilled to be part of the spread of God’s kingdom around the world. We are active in sending missionaries and supporting these missionaries with our money and with our prayers. The five missionaries from Grace Community Church are located in three countries—Zimbabwe, Cambodia, and Mexico. Each year, a small team from our church travels to one of these three countries to assist our missionaries in practical projects and evangelistic outreach. We encourage all of our people to respond to God’s call for laborers, whether it means that they move to a foreign country or live and minister in our own community.
Music & Drama
God-honoring worship is something we strive for. Many church members get involved in our music and drama ministry. Some play their instruments. Some are vocalists. Others are involved in the choir. Still others get involved in drama. These volunteers are an important part of the ministry of Grace Community Church, using their talents and gifts to glorify God.
The usher team at Grace Community Church fills an important role. They are involved in directing attendees to their seats, ensuring the safety of the building during services, guiding traffic, helping visitors, answering questions, providing direction, unlocking doors, locking doors, and generally ensuring that the service can proceed problem-free. The usher team is a servant-hearted group of men and women whose ministry is integral to church life.
Media & Technology
Using media to spread the gospel is a privilege of Grace Community Church. In an age of widespread technology, we have a stewardship to use these tools as best as possible for kingdom purposes. All of our weekly sermons are uploaded to our website in video and audio formats. We also maintain an active Facebook and Twitter feed for additional church communication.
Marriages can be difficult to maintain. Misunderstanding, confusion, resentment, and anger can flare up in any marriage. Several couples at Grace Community Church serve other families as marriage counselors. Their role in listening, understanding, helping, and encouraging struggling couples has, by God’s grace, saved marriages, and repaired relationships. Couples have found fresh hope and new joy in a warm and fulfilling relationship with their spouse.
Prayer cannot be overestimated. Prayer moves the hand of God. Grace Community Church is a body of believers dependent upon prayer, and committed to God’s sovereignty. Each Sunday, during the morning service, a team of volunteers is praying for the ministry of the Word. Throughout the week, volunteers to our Prayer Warriors team, pray for their pastor, a list of church members, any special requests, and missionary prayer needs. Each Wednesday, the church comes together for a special time of prayer and Bible study.
In order to give our children the best Bible teaching possible, Grace Community holds a children’s church service in conjunction with the main service. This special time gives kids more opportunity for interaction and learning in a context and manner that may be better suited to their age and learning styles. Our friendly children’s church volunteers have an endless stream of creativity–ranging from puppet shows, to games, to object lessons.
Each summer, Grace Community Church hosts a youth camp. The week-long event involves games, a lot of preaching, great food, good worship, and the intentional influence of camp counselors. The camp counselors are selected, screened, and trained for this important camp ministry. They find that their ministry is personally rewarding, and both campers and counselors grow in the process.
How Do I Meet People?
Grace Community Church is not a place for spectators. It is a place for team members. Whether you are a five-year old child, a ninety-five year old grandmother, a busy mom, or a businessman with big responsibilities, we want you to be a part of our vibrant church community. Here is how you can learn, serve, and grow at Grace Community Church.
Often, small groups of people are better able to interact and learn about a topic than larger groups are. For that reason, Grace Community Church has small bible studies held in member homes. The size of the group is anywhere from six to twelve. At a time, designated by your group, you can participate in the small group study.
Each Sunday morning, children get to participate in their own classes. Bible lessons are taught in such a way that every child gets to participate and learn. Each of the class teachers is carefully screened and thoroughly trained in children’s instruction. The youth ministry of Grace Community Church is recognized for their close interaction.
Life can get complicated once you cross that nebulous threshold into adulthood. There are complicated decisions. Bigger stakes. Serious relationships. And a whole lot more decisions. The young adult group of Grace Community Church provides a welcoming atmosphere for college and early-career aged young people.
Grace Community Women’s Groups gives the ladies in our church family special times of interaction. Our women’s groups, located in several locations throughout our community, are times of Bible study, prayer (and, of course, food). These groups provide a refreshing discipleship opportunity for the women in the church.
Men’s Accountability Group
Accountability among men is an act of integrity. Accountability is designed to protect, encourage, and develop men of all ages. Accountability groups of three are formed among the men of CBC Accountability groups meet together as their schedules allow and keep in touch by email or phone.
Even though marriage is one of the most important institutions, it is the one which is under the most attack–internally and externally. Grace Community Church gives married couples the opportunity to join four-month long marriage classes ranging on topics from Marriage and Money, Getting Ready for Kids, Shepherding Children, Marriage and Sex.
Once you get past fifty, the fun has just begin. Whether retired, just plain tired, or active as ever, the over-50 group of Grace Community provides refreshment, ministry, and times of valuable interaction. A mentoring ministry gives older believers a chance to meet with and help younger believers grow in Christ.

Where? What? When?
10th Annual Family Camp
It’s here! Our 10th Annual Family Camp. Get ready for a time of radical competition, intense recreation, enjoyable fellowship, and encouraging preaching. Spending time in a camp setting is like no other experience, and you will definitely receive a blessing from your week at camp. If you’ve signed up for camp, be sure to check your packet for information on what to bring.
Women’s Retreat – Theme: Women in Prayer
The fall women’s retreat has as its theme “Women in Prayer.” In many of the most notable women of the Bible – Hannah, Abigail, Mary, and others – prayer formed an important part of their life. This is the theme of the two-day women’s retreat. Bring your Bible and a heart ready to be changed.
Youth Retreat – Theme: Running The Race with Endurance
Our youth retreat will get off to a running start. The theme this year, Running the Race with Endurance, is a fitting follow-up to the summer’s theme, “Prepare for Action.” The three-day retreat includes a lot of fun and games, of course (with a few races, naturally), but will climax with the preaching event from guest speaker, Frank Denalli.
Walk Through The Bible – Sunday Night New Testament Survey
Recognizing that every believer needs to be grounded in the truths of God’s Word, each Sunday evening, we are exploring the New Testament. This study is a valuable way to understand the content and themes of the New Testament books. These times of in-depth study are both encouraging and informative, equipping members to better know and serve God.
August 15th – Guest Speaker Rev. Jon Doe – Everybody Needs Grace
Grace is amazing. Without it, we are lost. With it, we have all the riches of heaven. Our August guest speaker, Rev. Jon Doe will deliver a three-part series, titled “Everybody Needs Grace.” This gospel-saturated series is a must-hear for anyone. Sermons will be held at 11am, 2pm, and 4pm. Children’s activities will be available, as well as a catered dinner after the final service.
Office Hours: Monday-Friday from 8am to 5pm.
