A GRACE Group at Faith Community Lutheran Church is simply a group of 3 or more people that meet consistently and intentionally, while anchored in the tenets of “GRACE”:
Read & Reflect on God’s Word
Ask, through prayer
Care for one another
Expand the Kingdom of God
We gather (Matthew 18:20) to read and reflect on God’s Word (2 Timothy 3:16-17; Hebrews 4:12) and ask all things of Him in prayer (I John 5:14-15; Ephesians 6:18), and through that time together, we develop a caring community – an extended family, if you will (Philippians 2:4; 1 Thessalonians 5:11) – that is empowered to expand the Kingdom of God by sharing the good news of Jesus with others (Ephesians 2:10; Matthew 5:16).
A GRACE Group can be a small group of families that meets in a home every other Sunday afternoon… or a dozen men who get together once a month at a pizza joint… or a gathering of 7 single young adults every Thursday evening.
