Life is Better Together
Let's pretend your own "worst case scenario" happened. Maybe someone close to you died. Maybe you lost your job. Maybe your spouse cheated on you with your best friend. Dream up whatever nightmare keeps you awake at night. Question –Who would you turn to? Who would be there for you in your hour of greatest need? There is someone...right?!
Or let's change the scenario a bit. Today you experience something wonderful and exciting. It's so delightful, your joy will only be complete when it's shared with a friend. Who would you share it with? Can you picture a face and a name?
At the end of the day, life is too hard to go it solo; and even if you could, why would you want to? At Grace Community Church we believe no one should walk alone. Let us help you discover that life is better together.
Below are some simple ways to build friendships at Grace Community Church.
• LUNCH @ 11 - This is a meal together as a church family, everyone is welcome. Lunch@11 takes place about six times a year following our Sunday worship gathering, near 11:00am.
• SMALL GROUPS - We have a growing network of smaller communities in which meaningful friendships are developed and biblical wisdom and spiritual maturity grow. We seek and serve God together as men with men, women with women, and couples with couples. To learn more, email Mark Erikson. Listen to Better Together for a message on our passion for and philosophy of connectiong in smaller groups.
• SERVICE TEAMS - If you desire to plug into the GCC family long-term, you'll eventually get connected with one of our Service Teams. A number of our Service Teams also meet as Small Groups to share life with the other team members and to accomplish their mission. To learn more, email Mark Erikson.
• NEW SMALL GROUPS -The Bible teaches that believers have both the responsibility to, and the privilege of, joining "one another" on their journey through life. We desire for every person at GCC to belong to a community of friends who help each other live more like Jesus. New Small Groups begin at GCC whenever a handful of people are ready to commit themselves to each other. Please email Mark Erikson if you have a desire to help launch a new group.
