As the saying goes, connection and growth happen best in circles, not rows.
Groups are a great way to meet people, develop relationships, grow spiritually, and make a larger church seem small.

DID YOU KNOW: The early church didn’t do “church” around a stage, a study, or screens. Rather, they did it around a table! That’s right, churches gathered in homes – as people would eat, talk, sing, and pray together. Let’s bring “table church” back! Maybe a long-term, weekly community group isn’t the right fit for you in this season of life. Short-term table groups are an alternative option for you to meet with a consistent group of people to share a meal with and build community. For 3 months, commit to meet monthly with a group of friends (new and/or old) for dinner, and do life together over a meal. If you want to keep it up following the 3 month commitment, be our guest!

When: One night a month for 3 months (February – April 2023)

Who: Start one with a group of friends, or request to be placed in a group

Where: In homes, rotating hosts

Parents of Workers Abroad is a gathering for parents or grandparents of those serving overseas in mission work.

Family members of global workers left behind can feel a sense of loss when their loved ones are on a foreign field. Often there are feelings of gratitude for children obedient to God, mixed with a real sense of loss when they leave, even for those who have prayed for God to send workers into the harvest. This group seeks to provide fellowship, resources, and support to others who understand this unique life circumstance.

When: Meets the second Tuesday of each month, 6:30-8pm. This is an open group; join any time.
Where: GFC, Upstairs Conference Room

God invites us to cast our cares on Him because He cares for us (1 Peter 5:7). We are also encouraged to bear one another’s burdens (Galatians 6:2). Praying for each other is an indispensable part of caring for one another. Prayer groups meet at GFC on Fridays at 7am and Sundays at 8am, but you can also join our prayer email list to pray for others from home! Email Jamin at to be added to the distribution list.

There are 2 weekly prayer group meetings open to anyone who would like to join together and pray:

A New Perspective on Outreach

GFC’s vision is to help broken and vulnerable people find life in Christ. What does this look like practically within Global Outreach? This New Year, we are looking for new ways to reach out to international people. Some may feel called to mission trips, while others may choose to be involved with internationals locally (e.g., international students, immigrants, etc.). When you’re involved in outreach, globally or locally, you gain new perspectives and insight into who God is and into His love for people. Whether your desire is to go on a future mission trip or you just want to learn more about other cultures, join us for this 6-week training to gain a new perspective in outreach.

Where: GFC, North Room 3

When: Sundays at 10:30am

Cost: $20

The Grace Single Adult group includes lifelong singles, divorcées, widows, and widowers ages 35 and up (although our “sweet spot” is probably in the 40s, 50s, and 60s since many divorces happen at that age). It’s a great group, and we rally less around our age and more around a mutual desire to grow in the faith, form friendships, recover, heal, serve, love, and have fun. We meet at Grace Fellowship every Thursday at 6:30 for a Bible study and connect for other activities (hikes, concerts, game nights) weekly.

When: Thursday, 6:30-8:30pm, GFC, North Room 1. Childcare is available with a reservation.

Sign up below and we will email you with the details to join us!

Stay tuned for new opportunities.

Monthly Gathering

Do you want to follow Jesus but don’t quite feel like you know how? Well, you aren’t the only one! This group is for all Young Adults, ages 18-early 30s, and is all about discipleship, or practicing the way of Jesus. It’s how we live out not just the teachings of Jesus, but his very lifestyle (and FYI – Jesus was the most loving, joyous, and peaceful guy to ever live). And the best part is: we’ll do it together. We promise – this will actually change your life. Hope to see you there!
