Adult Small Groups

Small Groups or as we call them, Growth Groups, are held throughout the week for our adults. These groups provide a place for spiritual growth and help build relationships which allow us to live more authentically. There are a number of groups that meet on Monday night or Wednesday night and each group uses different material. There is also a Bible Study for men and women on Wednesday mornings. For information on locations and studies being used please call the church office at 419-636-5449 Growth Groups typically run September through May

Youth Ministry

Our Youth Ministry represents our 6th – 12th graders here at Grace. We strive to offer a ministry that meets kids where they are and to encourage them to discover who they are in Christ. In addition to their own classes and times together the youth are often involved in some kind of fulltime ministry at the church through children’s ministry, ushering, running a video camera, etc. They often do fun activities together throughout the year such as movie nights, lock-ins, laser tag, corn maze, etc. Every spring the youth have their annual fund raiser. This is always a time of fun and fellowship for those that come for the dinner and activities. We have done different themes over the years; city lights, luau, western, etc.

We bring men together to focus and discuss the challenges and issues that men face today. To provide opportunities and contribute to the process of building better men and lead others to Christ through: Worship and Prayer, Bible Study, Witnessing, Opportunities to give of oneself, Service, Fellowship, Mentoring, Stewardship, Leadership, Transparency, Real Friendship.

Women’s Ministries

Grace Community Women’s Ministry has monthly opportunities for prayer, fellowship, spiritual encouragement, fun and food. December’s theme was Ornament’s for Christ: How are you hanging? A time of signing cards of encouragement for those who had loved one’s that had passed this year was the opening activity. The women had a time of prayer for each other, made an ornament craft, had a devotional, and potluck.

Emphasis for this group is placed on building relationships with other Christian women for support, encouragement and fellowship.
