VOLUNTEER

DREAM TEAM

One of the most fulfilling things any of us can do in life is be a blessing to others. This is done through the gifts and talents that God has given each of us. Ephesians 2:10 tells us, “For we are His workmanship, created in Christ for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.” God gave every person the gifts and talents that we need to complete our mission for the Kingdom.

Jesus tells us in Matthew 20:26, “…but whoever desires to become great among you, let Him be your servant.” Romans 12:3-8 talks about serving God with the gifts He has given us. Verse 7 talks about the gift of ministering. The word minister here is the Greek word ‘diakonia.’ We get the word deacon from this word. It means to be an attendant (as in a servant).

With all this in mind, we are to use the gifts that God created us with to serve others. The Helps Ministry consists of all places in Grace Christian Center where you have an opportunity to bless others by serving. We ask that every person prayerfully consider where they may serve God. Every service takes between 75 and 100 volunteers, so we know there is a place for you!

CLASSES

Empower seeks to build mature disciples who can face the challenges of life with godly confidence and strong conviction. Our goal is to provide a broad selection of classes that are designed to strengthen your faith and prepare you for more effective service to the Lord.

PARTNERSHIP

Attending Grace is more than just being a member, but a Partner! We feel that Partnership and involvement is not just a Sunday activity, but a lifestyle of people committed to one another. Grace’s Partnership is a three-session process and is designed to assist you to understand the vision and structure of our church, to acquaint you with the core of our beliefs and to explain the “why” of what we do.

WATER BAPTISM

Water Baptism is an outward expression of our inward faith. It is another step in our spiritual walk with God and a declaration that the old things have truly passed away and all things have become new. Whether you are new in your faith or have recently rededicated your life to the Lord, you are invited to join us and take part in this celebration as you publicly declare your faith in Jesus!

Our desire is that each person will find a Grace Group where they can feel like they are at home.
