Children’s Ministry is designed to equip children to learn about God through teaching, crafts, and activities. During the two corporate worship services (8:15 & 11:15 AM) we offer classes for newborns through four years of age. Children five years of age and older attend the corporate service. During our Sunday School hour (10 AM) we offer classes for newborns through sixth grade. For the 2 year olds we use the Children Desiring God curriculum, which is intended to introduce children to the primary theology of the Old and New Testaments. For children 3 years of age through sixth grade, however, we use the Generations of Grace curriculum. Over a three-year period, this curriculum explores the historical books of the Old Testament, the life of Christ, and lessons from Acts and Revelation.

Youth Ministry, 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 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. During the Sunday School hour (10 AM), a class is offered for this age group. Additionally, the youth have fellowship and study opportunities bi-weekly on Sunday evenings. For more information regarding our Youth Ministry, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Young Adult ministry, which includes anyone college age to early career, exists to help provide instruction and shepherding specific to the various challenges of early adulthood. Our desire is to see young believers firmly rooted in their faith, zealous in their pursuit of holiness, and devoted to the Lord, His Word, and His church. Meetings are held twice per month. Meetings typically include a time of discussion and study as well as fellowship and games. For more information regarding our Young Adult Ministry, email us at email@example.com.
Adult Ministry assumes many forms at GCC. Throughout the year, there are specific events for both men and women. Sometimes these events are fellowship based, and other times they are focused upon instruction. Additionally, there are weekly classes offered for adults during the Sunday morning Sunday School hour (10 AM). The number of classes offered during this hour vary throughout the year. Attendees may alternate between classes that appeal to their current interests or needs. Lessons are focused upon Christian living, theology, biblical counseling, and missions. For more information regarding our Adult Ministry, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Seniors’ Ministry, which includes anyone aged 60 and above, exists for fellowship and to encourage one another to serve in all areas of the church. Meetings occur once per month on the third Saturday and typically include a meal and fellowship. Several times throughout the year, the youth or young adults will host these meetings, which provides a great opportunity for our older generation to invest in the younger generation. For more information regarding our Seniors' Ministry, email us at email@example.com.
Community groups are a primary means for developing deep and meaningful relationships with other believers at the church. These groups are hosted in homes and meet on the 2nd & 4th weeks of each month. Community groups are primarily structured to foster fellowship among those at GCC which should lead to informal opportunities for service, encouragement, and friendship outside of these contexts. These groups are largely geographically based and are open to all age groups. Consequently, these contexts have become one of the primary ways to encourage cross-generational relationships among the congregation. For more information regarding Community Groups, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Adult Bible studies are offered bi-weekly for men and women, and these studies alternate each week with each other. These home-based studies are an overflow of community groups. Consequently, people in the same community group attend the same men’s/women’s groups. These contexts exist to offer extended times of Bible study, prayer, and fellowship. For more information regarding Men's & Women's Bible Studies, email us at email@example.com.
The Missions Ministry seeks to fulfill the Great Commission both locally and abroad. Our desire is to partner with missionaries who desire to see churches planted and revitalized in all parts of the world. All missionary endeavors that we support are related to equipping indigenous people to serve their local churches or schools. Currently, we serve ministries in Central and East Africa, Italy, and Switzerland. Each year, we host Missions in May, which is an annual giving opportunity that allows our church to support missions endeavors which exceed our annual missions budget. These funds have allowed us to support pressing missionary needs, church planting/revitalization efforts, theological training for indigenous pastors, and translation endeavors. For more information regarding the Missions Ministry at Grace, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Counseling Ministry aims to disciple and train people in the context of the local church. Counseling is based upon scriptural principles rather than principles of secular psychology or psychiatry. 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. Biblical counseling will be provided by a counselor under the supervision of GCC’s leadership. Further, we strongly encourage same gender counseling. Discipleship counseling is offered free of charge as a ministry of the church, although part of the weekly homework assignments may require the purchase of materials that correspond to the counseling sessions.
