"Go make disciples"
Grace Church exists to reach people who are far from God by helping our neighbors experience the love of Christ through the body of Christ. We don’t just pray that people will come to church; we pray that we will go out and be the church! In the Great Commission, Jesus tells us to “go make disciples”. At Grace Church, we take seriously that one of Jesus’ favorite words is “go”! What we know as we go is that we are joining The Holy Spirit already at work in people’s lives. So, in our daily lives and our life together as a church, we desire to do whatever it takes to reach whomever God puts in our path whenever they need us without compromising the message of the God’s love expressed through Jesus Christ.
We know that Jesus often saw crisis as an opportunity and so do we. We go to treatment centers, juvenile detention centers, under resourced schools, communities in need and many more places filled with hurting people. We offer both the message of God’s grace as well as tangible expressions of that grace. When a child gets a new pair of shoes to start the school year, or someone pays for a stranger’s bill at the laundry mat, or a neighbor gets a bag of food or a free haircut, the message of God’s love can take hold. These and many other examples often spark a relationship that blesses all involved and brings God glory. Let’s GO!
