YOUR NEXT STEP
New Here? Welcome!
We invite you to check out Discovery!
Discovery is designed to help you get to know what Grace Church is all about. Throughout this experience, you’ll be able to connect with others while learning what it means to be part of the team here at Grace.
Along the way, you’ll discover the heartbeat of Grace Church, our beliefs and values, and what it means to Know It, Live It, and Give It Away.
Your journey begins here. Intro is the starting point for understanding the history, purpose, vision, and values of the Medina East Campus—the point where we reveal the heartbeat for our existence and share exactly what “makes us tick.”
You’ll discover that everything we do revolves around the Gospel—the story of Jesus—and how that story intersects with our lives and propels us to be more like Christ.
Sunday, August 11: 1:30-4:00pm
“What are the tools I need to be a fully invested part of the family at Grace Church?” This is what we answer at Equip. Together we’ll look at how the Gospel grows in our lives and leads us to discipleship—the dynamic process of learning the rhythms and habits of Jesus’ way of living. You’ll learn how discipleship serves as a kind of compass that points us toward key areas of involvement in and outside the church.
Equip Intensive is a way to complete Equip in one day! Anyone that needs to complete one or all of their sessions, can do this in one day. A schedule will be emailed to the student with an allotted time of their session.

Each one of us is uniquely designed. We are intentionally and purposefully crafted by God in order to function alongside others and make Him known to the world around us. Not only does God give Christ-followers a new identity, He gives them a new role and a new function as well—a new fit in His family. Identify gives you time to look inward and see how God has wired you and those around you, preparing us for new possibilities in leveraging who we are to grow His Kingdom.

Biblical Community, Disciple-making, and Serving

You’ll be guided to tangible opportunities to build relationships, serve alongside others, and further apply the way of Jesus personally at Grace Church.
