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 discussion on the books of 1-2 Peter and Jude, and how they apply to our lives.
We chose the name ReformerZ for our student group because we want to develop the next generation of Reformed leaders from among GenZ in our church, community, and world.
ReformerZ meets Sunday mornings at 9:15am and Wednesday evenings at 6:30pm
Sunday Morning (9:15 am)
“Reformed Basics” - An online study in which students are taught the basics of the Reformed faith beginning with God's sovereignty and man's responsibility, God's covenant and covenant people, eschatology and the life of the believer. Led by Samuel Trull and Jacob Wallace.
Wednesday Night (6:30 pm)
Each week the ReformerZ come together for Bible study, good conversation and fellowship, and a game or two (sitting by a campfire when weather permits). We are currently studying through the book More Than a Carpenter through February. This spring (March-May) we are going to be studying what the Bible teaches about justification and how we can be assured of our salvation in Christ.
Led by Will Collins.
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.
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.
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 email@example.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.
Grace is a "Lighthouse" Church - In the event of a local disaster for which Samaritan's Purse will deploy its a Disaster Relief teams, Grace will become the base of operations for the disaster relief units, staff, and volunteers. We will help guide the communities affected toward hope and recovery during times of crisis.
- Grace is a Sending Church - We facilitate readiness among our members and are prepared to mobilize volunteers on disaster responses.
- Grace is a DRV Church - As a DRV (Disaster Response Vehicle), we maintain a Samaritan's Purse disaster-equipped vehicle for local ministry use and as strategically-placed critical equipment ready to deploy regionally at a moment's notice.
