At Grace Chapel, we believe life change happens best within the context of a community, actively pursuing Jesus in relationship with others and inviting them to speak into your life. Each Group, about the size of an extended family, is centered around Jesus, committed to discipleship, and united by a set of shared rhythms. These small communities can take a number of forms. Groups often break for the summer and are supplemented by experiences like our One Service Sundays.
There are a number of common ways to get involved in a Group:
CONNECT SUNDAYS :: Three times a year we set apart a Sunday in order to help people connect to the life of the church. During these Sundays, space is given for the various ministries to be visible and accessible, Groups are opened to new members, and new Groups are launched. These typically happen in September, January and April.
SERVING :: Many people find their way into a Group through relationships formed outside of Connect Sundays. One of the quickest ways to meet others at Grace Chapel is to join a ministry team.
