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. A wrapped lunch is provided. Childcare will not be available.
Date: Sunday, December 6
Location: Medina East Campus Auditorium
EQUIP: Zoom Sessions
“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.
Date: Tuesdays, January 5-26, 2021
Join us via Zoom. Register below and a zoom link will be sent prior to the first session.
A way to complete all four sessions of Equip in one day!

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.
TWO OPTIONS TO IDENTIFY YOUR SPIRITUAL GIFTS

Biblical Community, Disciple-making, and Serving
This final phase of the Discovery journey will tie all these concepts together and then release you to continued growth in your relationship with Jesus. You’ll be guided to tangible opportunities to build relationships, serve alongside others, and further apply the way of Jesus personally at Grace Church.
