"What good is it for someone to gain the whole world, but lose their soul?" - Mark 8:36


Everyone is busy. It's one of the few things that almost all of us have in common. Well, that and how we feel about the traffic on 380. At Grace Chapel, we endeavor to provide classes and events where you can deepen your faith, but above all, we strive to create ministries that bring balance, sabbath, and renewal to your hectic life. No matter where you are in your life stage, how many kids you have, or how early you have to leave your house to beat the traffic on your commute, you will find people here who can relate and can be your family. Everyone needs an emotional home, and most of us have recently moved away from our support systems to live in this new area. You are not alone. Welcome home.

Life Groups

One of the primary ways that the church becomes a community and an emotional home for us is through small groups. There is no substitute for spending quality time with people who will love you for who you are, without judgment, and walk with you down the path of discipleship.

  • 2nd & 4th Sundays @6pm

     

    Our faith is not only for Sundays or when we are with “Church Friends.” Our faith guides decisions, politics, parenting, and how we view the world. God doesn’t separate the sacred from the secular. We are better Christians when we see God in art, music, culture, literature and the face of our fellow humans. This group is a place to celebrate these everyday sacred moments and to challenge us to not separate “God’s time” from “our time.”

  • 2nd & 4th Sundays @12pm

     

    We can’t control everything. Life happens on its own terms, not ours. This Life Group works to foster relationships with family, church, and God so that we have love, support, and a family of faith when life happens. We eat lunch together after our 11am worship service, and then share in a rich discussion of the Bible or a common challenge we all face in our daily lives.

  • 3rd Sunday of the month

     

    Anyone over 50 is invited to be a part of this group! These couples and singles meet in various locations for dinner or other events. This group does “field trips” on occasion because they like to go do fun things together. Come meet new friends and explore our community together! Life is better when you have a family of faith to share it with.

Seminary Abridged

Looking for a deeper dive into faith? Ever wanted to go to seminary? Looking for a study that only lasts a few weeks? We’ve got you covered! Pastor Alex teaches a series of mini-courses covering a variety of topics throughout the year. Some are discussion based, some are lecture based, but every class is only 3-5 weeks long and free!


(*Due to Pastor Alex's second child arriving mid-fall, he's offering a reduced number of classes this semester.)


All You Can Eat Topic Buffet! (5-week lecture & discussion series)


Topic #1 - The Entire Bible: In 90 Minutes

Tuesday - September 17 @7pm

Every Christian values the Bible, but few have ever read the entire thing. Join us on September 17th as Pastor Alex provides an overview of the story found in Scripture. If you've ever wanted to know what the Bible is about, or if you want a refresher as we begin a new season in life, this is your chance!

Topic #2 - Science & Faith: Do I have to pick one?

Tuesday - September 24 @7pm

Why does it seem that science and faith are always opposing forces? Do I have to choose between the big bang and Genesis? Is science really the enemy of faith, or do they actually work really well together? These are the questions we will explore on the 24th.

Topic #3 - Prayer: What is it and how does it work?

Tuesday - October 1 @7pm

We know that prayer works, but it seems that it doesn't always work, or at least the answer seems to be "no" a lot of the time. How does prayer work? Does God really decide to heal people based on a minimum number of people praying for them? What are the different types of prayer and where do they come from? These are the questions we will seek to answer together on October 1st.

Topic #4 - Church History: 2,000 Years 90 Minutes

Tuesday - October 8 @7pm

Ever wonder how the Christian Church came to be? Why are there so many denominations and what's the difference between them all? How did we go from 12 disciples to countless different types of churches? If you've ever wondered about the history of the Church, this is a great place to start!

Topic #5 - Politics: Should I keep church and state separate?

Tuesday - October 15 @7pm

In 2020, we will elect 435 house Representatives, 34 Senators, and a President. Not to mention the number of local elections that will happen all across our country. It seems that we are more divided and angry than at any point since the Civil War. We know that our faith is supposed to inform how we vote, but we also have separation of church and state in our country. Join us on October 15th as we have a civil conversation about our civic duty. How does our faith change the way we think and talk about politics?
