Life transformation happens most when people move from a row (sitting in a church service) to a circle (living in a community with others). Grace Groups offer opportunities to connect with God and connect with others in the context of regular meeting times.

Although most Grace Groups meet in homes, there are some that meet in coffee shops, restaurants, parks, or at Grace. Regardless of when they meet, where they meet, or what they study, we encourage every Grace Group to Love, Learn and Lead!

What is a Grace Group?

A Grace Group is a small Christ-centered community of people who build each other up and spur each other on toward spiritual growth.

The purpose of a Grace Group is to provide healthy Christian community that facilitates care and nurtures spiritual development.

When do Grace Groups meet?

Grace Church offers many options for getting connected into Grace Groups. The timing and location of each group depends on the group itself. Click here for a list of all Grace Groups.

How can I lead a Grace Group?

The Grace Church Men’s ministry is passionate about seeing men become the leaders God has called them to become. We have a desire to see men move from where they currently are to where God wants them to be!

The main connection point for our Men’s Ministry is the quarterly men’s breakfast. We gather together one Saturday morning each quarter to hear from some of Kansas City’s best speakers, pastors, and leaders. From these events, we encourage men to get plugged into Grace Groups that are specifically focused on intentional men-to-men discipleship. Hundreds of men are currently going through the Design For Discipleship books and are experiencing amazing life-change!

To view all men’s events, please visit the "Men" category on the online calendar.

The Grace Church Women’s Ministry is comprised of women who love God, love others, and prove it! Our passionate cry is to connect women to the heart of God and build lasting friendships that go beyond the superficial. Understanding the hectic lives of the modern woman, our ministry offers a variety of connection points.

Eve’s Night Out

This quarterly event is geared towards giving ladies an opportunity to relax, have fun, meet other ladies and be inspired to live for something greater than themselves. Past Eve’s Night Outs have included PJ parties, air-brush photo sessions, spa nights, and more!

Fall / Spring Events

Twice a year, all of the women of Grace gather together for a time of worship, teaching, and community. This offers an undistracted time to connect with other ladies and hear from God.

Women’s Grace Groups

One of the strengths of the Grace Women’s Ministry are the Grace Groups that meet throughout the week. These are intentional times of study (whether at Grace or in homes) where ladies from all walks of life and backgrounds come to learn from God’s Word and experience life together.

To view all upcoming women’s events, please visit the "Women" category on the online calendar.
