Fall CONNECT GROUPS

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.
