Fall connect groups

Let’s take a step of faith by moving forward together and making this season a time of growth and renewal by joining a Connect Group! Some of our groups will meet online on Zoom or on Facebook, some will meet in person while social distancing, and some groups are a hybrid of both. 

study groups

  • Unoffendable (online)

    Join us on Facebook Live on Mondays at 8PM for a teaching from Brant Hansen’s book, Unoffendable. In this book the author asks a radical question: What if Christians were the most unoffendable people on the planet? What if “righteous anger” is a myth? Giving up our “right” to be offended can be one of the most healthy, simplifying, relaxing, refreshing, stress relieving, and encouraging things we can do. You can purchase the book and follow along, watch the teaching video live on Mondays, or watch it at a time that works with your schedule. When you join, say "Hi"  in the comments and let us know you are participating in the study!

    MEETS: Mondays 8PM

    LOCATION: Grace of Bel Air Facebook Group

    TEACHERS: Pastor Paul Drost, Phil Drost, Tommy Rogers, and Darren Stauffer

    When we know God's Word, we know His character, and He can then help us understand what we didn't before. For the remainder of 2020 FaithLink will be reading through the New Testament and continue our reading plan goals. We meet online every Sunday evening to encourage you in your reading plan and watch and discuss The Bible Project video series. If you are interested in pushing yourself and reading more scripture this year than you ever have before, we'd love for you to join us at FaithLink. Let's grow together in the Word for an abundant harvest.

  • Immersed (hybrid)

    Ladies, We would love to have you join our fabulous group of IMMERSED sisters as we encourage each other in the Word to “Practice these things, immerse yourself in them, so that all may see your progress.” 1 Timothy 4:15. For ladies 18 and older. Book study:Get Out of Your Head by Jennie Allen.  This study in Philippians is designed to inspire and equip us to transform our emotions, our outlook, and even our circumstances by taking control of our thoughts. When we submit our minds to Christ, the promises and goodness of God flood our lives in remarkable ways. It starts in your head. And from there, the possibilities are endless.

    We will also be starting a monthly “Fill your cup” event. We will look for socially distanced ways to have time together to grab a cup of your favorite drink, relax, laugh, and build each other up.

    MEETS: Every other Monday online 6:30PM, and monthly in person

This is a great study to do especially since we are all walking through a different view of life during this pandemic. This study will encourage us to focus on the Lord's strength so we can live victoriously. We will also have an in person gathering on 12/2.

Ministry groups

  • senior care

    Our goal is to connect with senior adults who are experiencing loneliness and are not physically able to attend in person services during Covid-19.  The Lord has given us a wonderful opportunity to care for the senior adults in church. There are many ways to live out Leviticus 19:32, which says, “Stand up in the presence of the aged, show respect for the elderly and revere your God. I am the Lord.” We plan to meet the needs of and care for our elderly through assisting with grocery or prescription delivery, sending cards, delivering worship “carols” at their front steps, and more.

  • SERVOLUTION (hybrid)

    I always hear the phrase about being a world changer and it’s definitely something I want to be a part of. However, If you’re like me, things can get busy real fast. There are also so many responsibilities and distractions that can consume us. When I hear about what Jesus did and how He impacted people it’s easy to think: “I wish I had the time to do those things.” What if you did have the time? What if you could plan opportunities to reach people with the love of God? Join me each week with a challenge in reaching someone through random acts of kindness and seeing if it leads to an opportunity to share, invite, or pray with someone. I know it can be scary to do these things or even one of these things, but I think we often talk ourselves out of the greatest opportunities God has lined up for us to impact someone’s world. If we do nothing, our result will be nothing. However, if we pursue simple acts of kindness (Jesus did this A LOT!), you will see how fun it can be to serve people. It’s called the servolution. I would love for you to join and challenge yourself to do some practical things and share with us what it felt like and what the result was from doing your random act of kindness. Come and be a part of the journey! Book: Servolution by Dino Rizzo

    MEETS: Fridays
