Discovery

What is Discovery?

Discovery is an orientation to our church that provides you with information about our mission, core values, ministry distinctives, and the benefits of a local church. It is also the starting point for you to connect at Grace Church to groups, volunteer ministry teams, and membership. Download the Discovery Doctrine Study Guide here.

Biblical Community

What is Biblical Community?

Biblical Community is defined as “a group experience providing direction and care that is rooted in biblical truth for a desired outcome of life change.” This community is where you receive long-term care through regular meetings with other committed members. The majority of our members are engaged in Community Groups, however, we have a growing number of Recovery, Care, and Equipping Groups that help meet members’ needs during a specific season of life. We believe that finding Biblical Community is essential to care and growth at Grace Church. Group launches vary by campus.

What is a Community Group?

Community Groups are the heartbeat of our church and serve as the primary setting for members to grow in spiritual passion as they seek to live out the core values of the Christian life: Biblically Oriented, Relationally Connected, Ministry Focused, Culturally Engaged, Courageously Generous, and Prayerfully Dependent. A Community Group consists of 12-14 adults who are encouraging one another to mature in their faith while serving to meet each other’s needs.

Groups meet weekly following the local school calendar. Most meetings last around two hours. During that time a group will eat some snacks or share a meal, work through their curriculum, share what is going on in their lives, pray, and encourage one another wherever they are in their journey of faith. Most of our groups meet in homes, and they often rotate meeting in each other’s homes.

How do I get Involved?

The first step to getting involved in Biblical Community is the completion of Discovery. Upon completion of Discovery you can enroll in Foundations. Foundations leading into a group will be the beginning of your group experience. If you have any additional questions please contact your campus pastor.

Covenant Membership

We believe membership is a Biblical concept that functions best as a shepherding tool for our staff and elders. It allows believers to make known both their commitment to Christ and their commitment to one another. At the same time, it reflects a commitment from the church’s elders and staff to pray for, equip, shepherd, and hold you accountable to your covenant commitment to Christ and the local church. After you have completed both Discovery and Foundations, sign the covenant agreement electronically below or download a pdf to sign and return to your campus.

Serving

God has given you unique gifts and abilities for the specific purpose of serving him and building up the local church. Serving is an important aspect of membership, and we want you to “Make Your Mark” by finding where your gifts and passions align with the needs of the church. For specific serving opportunities visit your campus page or fill out the Interest Form below to get started.
