  • Our Men's Bible Study meets at 6:30 am each Thursday morning at Cabin Coffee on the square in downtown Blairsville.

    Will Collins leads a review and discussion of the previous week's sermon, and how it applies to our daily lives. 

  • Our Students meet Sunday mornings at 9:15am and Wednesday evenings at 6:30pm

  • The Grace Kids children's ministry understands that equipping our youngest family members to love God and love their neighbor is our most important calling. We seek to minister to families with little ones -- infants, toddlers, and preschoolers -- and older kids, too, all the way to 5th grade. 


    NURSERY

    Infant and Toddler Nursery (3 - 36 months): Our infant nursery is well equipped to serve our youngest Grace Kids. We have age-appropriate toys and games, gentle music, safe places to climb and explore, and more. For nursing moms, part of our infant nursery is partitioned off just for you, allowing you and your baby to feel like you are "part of the action" while enjoying privacy.

    Preschool Nursery (3 - 4 years): Our preschool nursery contains plenty of space to get the wiggles out. We have our room open, but separated into play "zones" so that children can comfortably find a favorite toy. There's a giant caterpillar to climb, a cozy spot in the sun to read, and lots of toys so that children this age can use their imagination. 


    SUNDAY MORNING


    On a typical Sunday morning, children are cared for and taught in age-appropriate classes and our nursery is staffed with volunteers. All children’s rooms are located in the children’s hallway, immediately outside the sanctuary. We do have a check-in station for our nurseries, and we ask that guests arrive a few minutes early to fill out an information sheet. Parents should leave phones on "vibrate" so that they can be paged in case of emergency. 


    9:15 AM  -  Sunday School

    Infants and toddlers (3-36 months) are cared for in the nursery. Sunday school classes are available for children 3 year-olds and up. Classes are split into preschool (3-4 years), younger elementary (5-7 years), and older elementary (8-11 years), and all classes use the Generations of Grace curriculum which walks through the entire Bible in three years. All classes teach the same scripture text and lesson, with increasing levels of depth and understanding as children reach higher levels of maturity and readiness. Parents who have children in multiple classes can have terrific conversations after church, talking with their whole family about what was discussed in class. 

  • People in the prime of life (55+) meet every quarter for a short devotion or special program,  fellowship and lunch. PrimeTimers meet the 2nd Thursday of the first month of the quarter. All are welcome. Email marilyn.priebe@gmail.com for more information

  • Our Widows meet monthly on the  2nd Monday at 10:00am at the church. 


    1 Timothy 5:3 commands us to “honor widows who are widows indeed.” It is our desire at Grace to honor and serve our widows by meeting their spiritual and physical needs in the following ways:

    • Semi-Annual Widows’ Work Days (May and November) – Volunteers perform planned maintenance and repairs at our widows’ homes twice a year.
    • Unplanned maintenance and repairs – We assist our widows throughout the year with unexpected maintenance and repairs using skilled church volunteers.
    • Friends or Family Servants – We ensure that each widow has a church member (family or friend) assigned to her who checks in on her on a regular basis.
    • Widows’ Banquet – On the Sunday closest to Valentine’s Day, we provide a luncheon after church hosted by Grace’s families with school-aged children & youth.
