Welcome to Grace Church!

JoeyAltom_Aug2012On behalf of the Powdersville Campus, I want to invite you to be part of what God is doing in and through our church. We are passionate about experiencing the life changing power of Jesus Christ, and helping others to do the same. We strive to worship God, and to be conformed to His image through biblical teaching, community with other believers, and giving our life away in service for Christ.

This site is intended to help you learn a little bit more about us and how to connect to the mission and ministries of our church. Be sure to check out what’s going on by scanning our scrolling announcements above and/or our calendar to the left. You can also register for upcoming events by clicking on the slides or by visiting our calendar pages.

Please don’t hesitate to introduce yourself to me or any of our campus staff after one of our Sunday services or contact us via email or phone (864) 284.0122 with any questions or concerns. You can find contact information for our staff by visiting our staff page.

– Joey Altom, Campus Pastor

Discovery is an orientation to our church that provides you with information about our mission, what we believe, and our overall philosophy of ministry. It is also the gateway for you to connect at Grace Church through community groups, volunteer ministry teams, and membership.

Foundations is our membership class focusing on our church’s Core Values, six essential areas of Christian maturity and growth. This class is open to anyone at Grace Church who has been to Discovery. During Foundations, you will have the opportunity to complete church membership.

Men’s Curriculum

The Quest for Authentic Manhood is a 9-week study with the aim to answer the question, “What does it mean to be a man?” This study deals with different wounds and deficits that all men must navigate as well as what redeemed masculinity looks like.

A Man And His Wife addresses the challenge of masculinity and implementing principles of biblical masculinity in the context of marriage. These six sessions are designed to give men a language to think about core strengths and core struggles of men, as well as a tool to converse with their wives and other men. This study is designed for all men, whether you have been married for 30 years or you hope to be married one day.

Women’s Curriculum

Biblical Femininity is a 7-week study designed to equip our women by providing a common language and exploring Biblical perspectives. The goal of this study is to gain clarity and freedom regarding the essential components of biblical femininity within a small group setting.

Body Matters – How a woman thinks about, views, and treats her body will either disempower her and hinder her growth in spiritual maturity, or it will free her from slavery to self and enable her to be a powerful and effective minister of Christ in all seasons and circumstances. Self-acceptance will never bring lasting freedom. Whether we loathe ourselves or love ourselves, self is still at the center. If we hope to find freedom from the tyranny of our own self-image, we must learn to view ourselves through a different lens.

Guest Information

We want you to have a beneficial worship experience.  From knowing where to park to finding out how to register your children for children’s programs on Sunday mornings, our Powdersville campus volunteers are ready to help welcome you to Grace Church.  Here are a few recommendations:
