MINISTRIES


MINISTRY OVERVIEW

You were not created to live alone, God made you for community. Grace Community Church is a not a Sunday only community, it is in our homes, relationships, and daily life. The first way to connect to the community here at Grace is through Life Groups. As you get more connected to the church, you will find ministry environments that can be places to ask deep questions, experience God in new ways, and grow in your daily walk with Him.


ADULTS

GET IN COMMUNITY,
BECAUSE LIFE’S BETTER TOGETHER.

Life Groups are central at Grace because spiritual growth flows out of two basic commitments:Life Group Image

  • A commitment to God and the Bible.
  • A commitment to authentic Christian relationships.

Life Groups meet weekly to share, study God’s Word, pray, serve, and support one another spiritually. Most of the groups study a sermon-based curriculum. Groups are 8-16 people who grow together in their faith and enjoy authentic and loving community. Find a location and time that works best for you.

Part of doing life together is serving together. We encourage each group to serve together once a quarter. We’d love to connect with you if you have an idea you would like to implement or if you need help getting started.

Email Lisa at lifegroups@graceinauburn.com if you would like to join a group or learn more about the opportunities.

 

Young Adults  Young Adults (18-25) meets weekly at the church, in the Chapel, on Monday evenings at 7:00pm. Please join us as we explore the basics of faith. For more information, contact youngadults@graceinauburn.com or 253.833.5660.

Men’s Ministries  Our programs include sports, conferences, service projects, leadership development, Bible studies, breakfasts, training and fun events. Our prayer is that men would not be isolated or discouraged; but Jesus would guide our priorities, purpose, goals, and we would come together as one team. For more information, contact men@graceinauburn.com or 253.833.5660.

Women’s Ministries Our desire is to provide excellent options for connecting and gaining support at every stage in life. Our events are festive, lively, compassionate, purposeful, and focused on Jesus! We are here to serve you, come alongside of you, and equip you to live victoriously in the Lord. For more information, contact women@graceinauburn.com or 253.833.5660.

Marriage & Family Ministries Grace is here to support your marriage and family. We have programs, mentoring, and classes for you if you are engaged, newlywed, or have a long-term marriage. We are honored to ask questions, share insights, pray, listen, and point you to the Healer and Restorer of all relationships.

Seniors Young at Heart is our active fellowship of senior adults at Grace. As seniors, we are living longer, making friends, and doing more purposefully than ever before!  We meet Thursdays 10:00-11:30am in the Chapel. New friends are always welcome! On the first Thursday of each month, our weekly Bible study is followed by a potluck lunch in Grace Café. We look forward to getting to know you! If you have questions, suggestions, or would like a copy of the current Young at Heart calendar, contact us at youatheart@graceinauburn.com, or you can call the church office at 253.833.5660.

KIDS

Grace Kids offers two environments at every weekend service – Preschool and Elementary. The Preschool environment is geared for children ages birth to preschool where everything they experience will invoke WONDER and help them embrace a God who is bigger than their imagination. Three basic truths are reinforced in fun and exciting ways: God Made Me, God Loves Me, Jesus Wants to be My Friend Forever. The Elementary environment is where elementary children go to DISCOVER the greatness and everlasting, unchanging love of God. Everything we do is aimed to help them experience who God designed them to be and encourage them to live out their faith! The Elementary environment reinforces 3 Basic Truths: I can trust God no matter what. I need to make the wise choice. I should treat others the way I want to be treated.
