Winter/Spring CONNECT GROUPS

February-April 2019

At Grace we believe that having healthy, growing relationships with people around us is a very important part of having a healthy, growing relationship with God.


Whether you are looking for a Bible study, community outreach or just friendship, we have something for you!  There are groups for all ages and stages of life.  And the great thing is you decide which group fits you and your schedule.

The group will meet for a 4 week book study,  Fields of the Fatherless by Tom Davis, to discovering God's heart for the fatherless and developing an awareness to His call for us as Christians.

    The group will also have monthly information meetings to provide practical and real ways to serve the "least of these."
