Deacons Ministry:  The office of Deacon is Biblical, set by the early church in the book of Acts. We currently have four deacons who were chosen by their qualifications as well as their willingness to serve. Their purpose is to assist the pastor in ministering to the church family.  At Grace every family is assigned a Deacon who is there to help them in times of need. Needs may range from visitation, comfort in times of sickness or in death or spiritual counseling. Our deacons and their wives also make up the benevolence committee, whose purpose is to represent the church in helping people in times of financial need.

 

Sunday School Ministry: (Director: Cary Hensley) One of the most important aspects of our church is Sunday School. The purpose is to “Teach the gospel of Jesus Christ to strengthen individuals and families by encouraging them to study the scriptures, obey the commandments, and keep the associated covenants.” We have teachers who dedicate themselves to study and to living Godly lives. Our classes range from nursery to adult and begin at 10:00am Sunday morning.

 

DVD and CD ministry: This ministry is here to meet the spiritual needs of those who are cannot attend. Sunday mornings and special events are recorded to DVD, and Sunday and Wednesday nights are recorded to CD.

 

Also available at our sound booth are personal monitors for the hearing impaired which can be used to help listen to the services.

Music Ministry

 

Music Director: Josh Collins

 

The music of Grace consists of a variety of styles; traditional hymns, praise and worship, southern gospel and contemporary. We use sound tracks as well as instruments. Our goal is to lift up the name of our Lord and savior Jesus Christ through song. We have an adult choir, children’s choir, interpretive sign language teams, and a praise band. We also encourage participation in specials, whether individually or in a group. All participates are volunteers, so anyone wishing to worship in song is encouraged to join us. The adult choir practices every Sunday and Wednesday night.

 


 

 

Interpretive Sign Language Teams

Leader: Crystal Gouge

 

We have two sign teams: one for teenagers, the other for ladies. The sign teams express worship by signing to song. Though silent, this is a very effective and expressive form of worship. All who participate are volunteers, so anyone interested is encouraged to join in.



YOUTH MINISTRIES

 

Train up a child in the way he should go:

and when he is old, he will not depart from it.

Youth Ministries

 

Youth Director: Paul Robertson

 

We have a very active youth group. We offer a wide variety of times and events for our youth to fellowship and worship. They have activities once a month through out the year including Youth Camp, VBS, concerts, camping, and sporting events all of which have Bible study before or during the event.

 

Nursery

 

The nursery is available for children 0-2 years of age. Our staff of nursery workers are volunteers who love children. We want you to feel confident in the safety of your children while you enjoy worship service.

 

Junior Church

 

We have Junior Church twice a month during Sunday morning worship. It is provided for children 3 years old to second grade. It consists of Bible lessons on their level as well as games and crafts. Parents are welcome to stay with their children when it is their first time.

 

AWANA

Commander: Paul Robertson

 

AWANA stands for; Approved Workman Are Not Ashamed and is based on Second Timothy 2:15. AWANA is a children’s ministry we have on Wednesday’s during the school year.  We begin at 6:45 and end at 8:15. The time is divided into three segments; one is for Bible verse memorization, another is for a lesson, and the third is for game time. This ministry has proven effective in reaching children and families for Jesus Christ.

 

Sunday school

 

We have classes for all ages – nursery through High School. Sunday school is a great time to prepare for worship service as well as engage in deeper study of God’s Word.
