The primary way people experience Christ-Centered friendship and “pastoral” care at GRC is in a Growth Group. These are gatherings of 8-12 people representing various backgrounds and stages of life who meet regularly in homes to share life and consider what the Bible has to say about life.
If you’d like to find out more or connect to a group, or if you’d like help choosing one, you can choose to provide some basic information, and we can suggest a Growth Group meeting within days. You can do either by clicking here to give us your details and interest.
Outside of corporate worship, joining a Growth Group is the single best way to get connected into community to encourage your growth and the growth of others at GRC. We hope that everyone in our church can participate in one.
GRC Kids is our home for children from birth – 6th Grade on Sunday mornings. Our vision is to partner with parents in forming kingdom minded children committed to Christ who know and love God, see his love demonstrated at church and at home and are able to apply God’s Word to their lives.
YOUR FIRST VISIT
We are excited to welcome your children this Sunday! You’ll find lots of energy and children of all ages. Our safe environments are staffed with loving and screened volunteers. Our classes are creative and Gospel focused. Nursery children feel secure and loved.
When you arrive come visit our Children’s Ministry welcome and check-in table, located next to the nursery. At the welcome and check-in table, a staff member will help you register your children, explain all procedures, and lead you to the correct classroom. We also encourage you to pick up a copy of the Parent Handbook and Nursery Welcome Card to help you become familiar with our programs.
At GRC, we desire to provide a secure and engaging environment for your child at each developmental stage. Nursery care—staffed with professional staff and volunteers—where children are nurtured, loved and can play with their peers is provided for throughout the scheduled worship services and Christian Education hour. Nursery care is separated into three rooms:
- Infants & Crawlers (Birth – 12 months)
- Walkers (12 – 24 months old)
- Puddle Jumpers (2 – 3 years)
Classes during the 8:30 and 11:15am Worship Times
Gospel-focused age appropriate instruction is provided for children ages 2-third grade, during the Worship Services at 8:30 & 11:15am. Nursery aged children (birth-3 years old) are welcome to come to the nursery at the beginning of the service. During the service, Pre-K through third grade children are welcomed to worship with the rest of the congregation. Right before the sermon portion of the service, Pre-school through third grade children are dismissed to classrooms for a Kid’s Club program where they will learn Bible stories, memorize Bible verses and learn Biblical truth in a fun and engaging environment.
Children who are in 4th-6th grade remain in the service and are invited to follow along with the sermon by using a Children’s Bulletin.
CHRISTIAN EDUCATION HOUR AT 10:00 AM – 11:00 AM
During the Christian Education Hour (held between the 2 worship services), a Christ-centered, interactive and creative Bible class, staffed with committed volunteer teachers that uses The Gospel Project curriculum is offered for:
- 2’s & 3’s (held in the nursery area)
- 1st & 2nd
- 3rd & 4th
- 5th & 6th
These are the stories of God’s grace in the lives of God’s people here at Grace Redeemer Church. These stories are little snapshots of Gospel transformation in people’s lives. And, we all need that at some level, don’t we? We all desire that at some level. At times, we all doubt that God can change us—or a spouse—or a situation. Or a church, or a community, or even a nation. But, these are real testimonies of God’s grace in people’s lives. Some of these may strike you as ordinary, and that’s good if it helps you relate to the story, and it reminds you that anyone can change by the power of God. Some stories may strike you as extraordinary, and that’s good too if it strengthens your ability to believe that God can overcome any obstacle in your life and can change anything.
As you listen to these stories, may the Holy Spirit reveal to you more clearly what your own Grace Story is all about. And, as you hear these testimonies, and as they’re all different, I hope you remember that which we all have in common. It is that: by grace, you have been saved; through faith and not of your own doing; it is the gift of God, not the result of works; so that no one may boast.
