Life Groups

Life Groups make space in our lives to be with people we might not otherwise find time with. They are about connecting and enjoying each other's company around a common interest or activity. The likelihood is that if you enjoy something, you'll enjoy connecting with others around that thing—eating good food, for example, or exercising, playing games, reading, cooking, gardening, conversing, etc. Life Groups are a way to connect with others around a shared activity. They take place throughout the city, and are open to everyone!


Life Group signups are here! All groups will begin the week of February 17, and will run till April 13.

 
 
 

Table Talks

table talks

Table Talks are real conversations about contemporary human issues that affect our everyday lives. The point is to reimagine these issues theologically, through the lens of the gospel. Expect a blend of short readings, good community, and thoughtful conversation over drinks and dessert. 


For Educators

These quarterly Table Talks are for those who work in primary and secondary education, whether as teachers or administrators. How does Christian faith illuminate, reframe, and enrich the calling to work in education? TABLE TALKS for Educators meets quarterly through the academic year.

Hosted by Wil Rogan and Jeff Giles.

quarterly | 7:30pm | Email Jeff Giles to RSVP.

Race

Racial enmity has been the source of great pain and division. As a result, race is treated as a problem to be solved, or else a matter to be avoided. But racial difference is an opportunity for our formation as disciples of Jesus Christ and for our witness to the world that Christ is our peace. Expect meaningful conversation and prayer in response to issues of race, so that we might more fully embody Christ's body in our lives together.

3/25, 5/20 | 7PM | RSVP sophath.kong@gmail.com

Child Dedication

Why do we dedicate children at Grace? It's an act of acknowledging that your child belongs to God and you are called to help them live as disciples of Jesus, as well as an invitation to the Grace community to partner with you in the task of shaping your child's life.
