MEN OF GRACE (M.O.G.)
The mission of Men of Grace is to encourage men to live godly lives, set apart from the world! We encourage each man of grace to make a commitment to a healthy mindset as he walks with integrity of heart. We also encourage each man of grace, as brothers in Christ, to make purity of character a number one priority in his life.
Each man of grace is also encouraged to have a willingness to constantly allow the Spirit of God to make him sensitive to matters that make a difference to God. Most importantly, we encourage each man of grace to have intimate fellowship with God, thus continually increasing because the man of grace has sought the heart of God.
WOMEN OF GRACE (W.O.G.)
The primary mission of the Women of Grace Ministry to encourage women of Grace Community Church (Grace) to spend time with our Lord Jesus Christ daily – through prayer and the study of God’s holy Word. It is also our hope that each woman of Grace would be active in her Christian walk and share the Gospel with all people she encounters. It is also our desire to connect generations of women of Grace through prayer, Christ-centered fellowship, discipleship, and missions for the glory of God and the advancement of His Kingdom by the power & guidance of His Holy Spirit within us.
The Women of Grace Ministry meets several times throughout the year for fellowship outings and activities, in addition to hosting mission events.
Children of grace (C.O.G.)
The Children of Grace Ministry is designed to bring up children in the way of the Lord – we strive to foster an environment where our children of grace can understand what it means (and how to become) a true child of God and grow in the fear and admonition of the Lord – all while having fun learning about Jesus and how to share His love wherever they go. The Children of Grace Sunday morning Bible study (Church School) gives the children the opportunity to learn about God through teacher-led Bible reading and discussions.

GRACE INSTITUTE OF BIBLICAL STUDIES (G.I.B.S.)
Grace Institute of Biblical Studies (G.I.B.S.) is a ministry of Grace Community Church.
