Grace’s mission is “to build spiritually healthy people for life and ministry in the world.” As we all give of our time and talents, we begin to see this mission fulfilled. What a joy to serve one another to the glory of God! Below are the current service opportunities for members of Grace:
Contact: Justin Tucker
COMMUNITY GROUP HOST
Each fall we need 30 homes to host Community Groups for the school year. We are looking for Grace members who are willing to host small groups in their homes for Bible study, prayer, fellowship, care for one another, and outreach in our city. We offer the training and resources that are needed to show hospitality in this way.
COMMUNITY GROUP LEADER
We need 1-2 leaders per home, totaling 45-60 Community Group leaders. Leaders are responsible to facilitate the small group meeting time of discussing the Bible, praying together, and helping the group engage in outreach opportunities. We offer initial training and weekly resources to adequately equip our leaders.
DISCIPLESHIP STUDY TEACHER
On Sunday mornings we offer various Biblical study topics for adults. We are always looking to train and equip new teachers to lead these studies. We usually have 10-12 teachers each semester, which runs around 12 weeks. If you have experience teaching or would like to grow in your teaching gifts, please consider this opportunity.
(The process to serve as a Community Group leader or host is to fill out the linked application above and receive confirmation from Justin Tucker about your volunteer position. If you are approved as a volunteer, you will be asked to listen to foundational training sessions online and attend a live training session in August.)

Greeters and ushers welcome everyone to Grace on Sunday mornings, hand out bulletins, and help guide visitors throughout the building. They are asked to serve one Sunday per month.
