Connections For Men & Women

Church is where the family of God does life together to God’s glory and in the service of others. At Grace, we encourage every adult to get plugged in, to share their time and talent and to invest in relationships. There are opportunities throughout the week for adults to connect. Dive in and start making friends and growing in your faith. 

Below are just a few opportunities to connect and grow throughout the week! In addition, there are lots of serving groups with available openings; see where you can use your gifts and talents by clicking here.
