What Does it Mean to be Remembered?

Thank you for your prayers for our Kairos team as we served in the prison last weekend.

This Sunday, November 24, I will be sharing…

Being a Church Devoted to Prayer

We Were Made to Thrive

Friends, I have good news! We have a great opportunity this Sunday, August 18, to celebrate and affirm our youth ministry here at Grace. Our Youth Director, Matt Gleason, shares…
