The Bible encourages Christians to actively participate in a close-knit family of believers, with the goal of stirring one another up to love and good deeds (Hebrews 10:24–25). God designed the local church to be the venue in which believers engage in fellowship, equipping, and accountability to that end. Our firm commitment to this concept of community within the family of God is what drives Fellowship Groups at Grace Church. Fellowship Groups are designed to narrow your immediate circle of ministry into the hundreds, because in a church of thousands, relational ministry can otherwise be overwhelming.
Each Fellowship Group has its own leadership team composed of pastors and elders committed to teaching and investing in the lives of their flocks. Every Sunday morning, each group meets for a time of teaching, worship, and fellowship, and throughout the week they break into smaller, regional Bible studies. Fellowship Groups are open to adults and families in every season of life. The relationships that form at this level grow from close, consistent communion with other believers, and come with opportunities to show the kind of self-denying love and service the church was designed to display.
We’re blessed to be part of a church that is committed to striving toward God’s standard for Christian community, and we’re encouraged that God continues to bless our ministry as we seek to glorify Him before a watching world. If you’re new to our church or looking to connect more deeply with other believers, we would encourage you to begin attending a Fellowship Group.
Fellowship Groups will begin meeting next Sunday, August 1 at 8:30 am.
