fall connect groups

Our Fall Connect Groups vary from diving right into the Bible, others utilize video teachings, and some are community and/or event based groups. A Connect Group is the place to start looking for your community. View the groups below and join one HERE.

study groups

  • Community bible study

    Community is one of the greatest tools for growth in the life of a believer. Our group gathers weekly to share our lives with one another, to grow together in our friendships and our relationships with God through Bible study, prayer, fellowship, group activities, and service opportunities. We will begin with a study of Acts, diving more deeply into Bible texts covered in Sunday sermons.


    MEETS: Fridays at 7PM beginning September 16 through December 16

    LOCATION: Bel Air

    LEADERS: Judson and Debbie Kadow, Ed and June Naus

    CONTACT: Ed: ejnaus@yahoo.com

  • FAITH LINK: God's DEEPEST TRUTHS-BROUGHT TO LIFE

    Sometimes it seems like today’s culture is constantly challenging our faith. Without an understanding of the Bible’s core truths, how can you have confidence to share and defend your faith? Learn Bible Engagement teaches you how to dig into the depth of what Scripture teaches and shows you how to discover what the Bible's truths mean for your everyday life, and gives you the understanding and confidence you need to share your faith with others. This Fall we are studying: Why is the Bible relevant to me? Who is God the Father? Who is Jesus?


    The Bible Engagement Project is a discipleship system built to strengthen families and relationships, deepen knowledge and appreciation of scripture, and to root your family in God’s Word. If you have children in Grace Kids, they will be learning the same scripture each week as our class but on their level making it easier to continue the conversation and discipleship process at home.

  • Men’s Study: Win the Battle of Your Mind

    Join us for a six session video study by Louie Giglio to dive deeper into Psalm 23 and how to win the battle in your mind and overcome the enemy's lies, and find peace and spiritual security in any circumstance or situation.  Learn how to: protect your mind from unhealthy thoughts, experience rest and nourishment at God's table, find encouragement, hope, and strength no matter what valleys you face. Freedom from the battles in your mind is possible if you allow Jesus, the Good Shepherd, to lead the battle. Study Workbook: $11, Optional Book: $17

  • Sisters by Grace

    Women are invited to join us for study, worship, prayer, and community. This Fall we are studying the book of Amos and using study materials by Jennifer Rothschild. Amos is often called a prophet of doom. On the surface, his prophecy doesn’t sound like a happy formula for the good life. However, every condemnation he gives serves as an invitation, a cry for us to “seek God and live” (Amos 5:4). You’ll be invited to live assured, faithful, chosen, humble, justly, prayerful, and hopeful. This kind of living will bring us and others around us peace and true prosperity. Book Cost with Video Access $22.00

  • Foster the Family Harford County Support Group

    We are partnering with Foster the Family to mobilize and equip the church to support foster families in Harford County. Foster children fall under every category established in Psalm 82:3-5. They are weak. They are —at least functionally—fatherless. They’ve been afflicted. They are destitute. They are needy. There is another category of people in these verses, though: The people of God whom He speaks directly to. The ones who are to give justice, maintain rights, rescue, and deliver. Us. All throughout Scripture we find the call to care for orphaned and vulnerable children. The orphan, the fatherless, the vulnerable are close to God’s heart, and caring for them is a function of being a follower of Christ.


    You can support local foster families by: 

    • Volunteering to serve in childcare during the monthly support group meetings hosted by Grace. Training is provided by Foster the Family. 
    • Donating refreshments for the foster mom support group meetings.
    • Donating items (gently used clothes and shoes for ages 0-12, baby gear, diapers, wipes, baby blankets, bibs, burp cloths) for the blessing closet where moms visit on support group nights. 
    • Sharing Foster the Family Support Group info with foster/adoptive mom and prospective foster moms.The monthly support group includes short topical training and guided discussion for foster and adoptive moms.
