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.

    Consisting of students from area schools, this is a college-aged class. We look at Jesus’ life through an in-depth study of the Scriptures. 

    Foundations - Room 006 (Lower Level)
    We are a group of engaged couples, newlyweds, and young families that strive to build strong family foundations rooted in Christ. We do this by meeting and sharing life together on Sunday mornings as well as connecting with each other throughout the week. Our desire is to develop authentic community among each other and anyone looking for a place to connect.

    Families for Christ - Room 116 (across from the Worship Center)
    We are a married couples class that focuses on encouraging one another to effectively impact our homes, workplaces, and neighborhoods for Christ.  

    To A Thousand Generations - Room 010 (Lower Level)
    This Sunday School class forms the foundation for a tight-knit, but welcoming, multi-generational community of people who love God and try to honor Him as Savior and Lord. All lessons are based on the Bible and structured according to the Westminster Shorter Catechism. Since all ages are welcome, the lessons are taught in such a way that our three-year-olds can understand, but also that our adults are challenged. This group mostly consists of young families, but all ages are eagerly welcomed.

    Crossroads - Room 256
    We offer solid, biblical direction for men and women seeking spiritual growth and direction while in a period of life transition. Our prayer is “Speak Lord, now we’re listening.”

    We are a fellowship of believers that are blessed with special needs. A devoted staff teaches and demonstrates the love of Jesus in this Sunday School class that meets from 9:15 a.m. through 11:10 a.m.

    Spiritually Single - Room 143
    This class provides a setting where wives of non-believers can study, share, and pray with one another. Our goal is to live a victorious life in the midst of an “unequally yoked” marriage.

    Grace Connections - Room 145
    Would you like to better understand how the Bible applies to your personal life and witness? If so, join us for an in-depth look at God’s Word with time for questions and comments. Married or single, regardless of age, all are welcome!

    Ambassadors for Christ - Room 020 (Lower Level)
    In accordance with 2 Corinthians 5:20, the theme of this class is the development of contextual insight and constructive engagement with the world around us. 

    1 John 1:3 - Chapel
    “That which we have seen and heard we declare to you...” This class has its goal set firmly on God’s Word.

    Centered In Christ/First Things First - Room 156, Section A (Gym)
    This class is for adults of all ages who are committed to Christ. We look at life honestly in light of God’s Holy Word.

    Cornerstone - Room 009 (Lower Level)
    We encourage one another to build families with Christ as the cornerstone by facilitating a wonderful Christian community of prayer, Bible study, and fellowship.

    Friends in Faith - Room 015, Section 3 (Lower Level)
    Focusing on fellowship with one another and the Lord, this group desires to build strong relationships while striving to follow God in every aspect of life. “Those who feared the Lord talked with each other, and the Lord listened and heard.” (Malachi 3:16)

    Growing in Grace - Room 021 (Lower Level)
    This class has adults of all ages who study the Bible together with lively discussions.  Discover how God’s Word still speaks to us with clarity, authenticity, and power; and meets our needs for time and eternity. 

    International ESL Discussion Group - Room 008 (Lower Level)
    This class, led by Mike Uno, is designed so that those who speak English as a second language can learn basic Christian teaching about God, Jesus, man, the Bible, the church, and our eternal destiny.  The class will use a discussion-based format so that everyone can participate and learn.  The class will begin on January 27 and run every Sunday thereafter from 9:45 to 10:45 a.m.
