"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.

Lenten Book Study

Starting February 21st @7:30pm on Zoom

Lent is a time in which we reflect on our own humanity, on our need for repentance, and on the goodness of God's grace in the midst of it all. We prepare ourselves for the stories of Holy Week and for the joy of Easter. This Lenten Season, journey with Pastor Courtney in reflecting not only on our own humanity, but also on the humanity of Jesus. We will explore the historical fiction work The Book of Longings by Sue Monk Kidd alongside the scripture passages and characters contained within the narrative. The novel brings to life a story about Jesus and a woman named Ana that is primarily set in the years before Jesus' ministry we read about in our Bibles. While her narrative is fictional, Sue Monk Kidd has captured the essence of Jesus's character we are familiar with through our scriptures, and she brings to light his humanity in fresh and new ways. Let's consider together how these stories, both in the book and in our bibles, might inform our own faith journeys in this holy season for the church.


Life Groups

One of the primary ways the church becomes a community and emotional home for us is through life 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. The goal of Life Groups is to build emotional homes where people grow spiritually and relationally as they intentionally focus on what it means to follow Jesus.

**Some groups are meeting virtually while others have resumed in-person, socially distant meeting. Please contact the group leader for more information about how they are gathering.

Meet-Up Groups

These groups offer an emotional home to members by connecting them over shared interests, activities, or studies. Some groups meet more regularly than others. Some are exclusively a part of our virtual community, while others offer in-person connections as well.

  • Race Talk

    Our faith community is committed to resisting evil in whatever form it presents itself – including the form of systemic racism. These monthly gatherings offer a time and space for attendees to consider different ways we can actively resist racism in our communities. Using a variety of resources, we examine where racism presents itself in our community, and consider how we can respond to better love our neighbor. These meetings currently happen virtually through Zoom.
