In the Church

Connections

Our Connections Department exists to help everyone’s experience at Grace Church be welcoming and enjoyable. Opportunities range from being a part of Guest Services, being a Grace Group Leader, or being a part of one of our Connecting Events Teams. We would love to have you aboard!

Family Ministries

Want to make a critical impact on the next generation? The lower level is filled with kids eager to learn about God’s love through you! There are places to serve in the classrooms, in Kid’s Worship, and behind the scenes during the week prepping classrooms and crafts. If older kids are more your speed, join the Sunday night team helping mentor middle and high school students. They have a full service on Sunday nights that include a First Impressions Team, Grace Group Leaders and a Worship Team.

Operations

What is the role of our Operations Team? Well, it’s just how it sounds! The Operations Team exists to help serve in our day-to-day operations within Grace Church and our weekend services. Roles in this department include Communications, Accounting, IT, Facilities, and HR. Investing your time and talents into this team plays a huge role in advancing God’s Kingdom within our community and beyond!

Worship & Production

Here at Grace Church, our desire is to establish an environment in which you can meet with God in a real and powerful way. Maybe you are skilled at playing an instrument, or singing; your talents can contribute to making this time of worship awesome! Opportunities with audio, visual, lighting, camera operators, and set design are also available. We invite you to come and learn something new while serving our God!

Serve

Serving allows us to become the hands and feet of Jesus to those in the church, in the community and in the world.  Our growth in Jesus Christ is often shown by our passion to serve others by using our God-given gifts and abilities.  Want to see a dramatic change in your life?  Begin by serving those whom God has placed around you!
