And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds. Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another-and all the more as you see the Day approaching.

Grace Groups

In our hectic modern-day world, Grace Groups can offer a pause that refreshes through scripture reading, prayer, meditation, and inspirational reading. Grace Groups are made up of four people that commit to meet at least twice a month for one year, to intentionally build relationships and discipleship. Grace Groups offer time and space to grow in grace, loving and sharing friendships in Christ. New Grace Groups can form at any time. Gather up a friend or two and join a group—we’ll help with study resources and get you started. If you are feeling called to take part in this small group ministry, contact Julie Hestermann.
