Lifelong Learning Starts Here

If there is one thing we can learn from the stories in the Bible, it's that learning occurs throughout our lifetimes. From the Exodus to the early church movement, including the life of Jesus, we see that life is a journey. Along the way, there is much to learn. At Grace, we believe that we are never too old, or too young, to learn. We offer different paths to learning - from classrooms to living rooms, from shared experiences to shared meals, from conversation to meditation - we believe there is a way for you.

Learning for Children

Children are inquisitive! They want to learn about their world: about God, why bad things happen, and how to help others.  We want to shape our children's thinking and help parents answer the tough questions. That's why we offer children's and adult groups studying the same topic, so the conversation can continue at home. We dedicate weekly in-worship time to children, and give them "Children's Church" for age-appropriate, active learning. Children and families are a priority for us, as they are for you.


Small Groups

Being in meaningful relationships is what Jesus was all about. We think it's pretty important, too. So we encourage small groups of people to come together and share meals, have conversation, and get to know one another. These are places for seeking meaning and relevance to everyday living from scripture, and we find these are safe spaces for prayer to surface. There are groups that meet weekly or monthly, depending on the interests of the participants. Come and see if there is a group for you.

Seasonal Studies

We encourage lifelong learning in special seasons of the year. Our preparations for Christmas and Easter include opportunities to read, discuss, and practice ways for keeping Christ at the center of life. Other seasons lend themselves to reflecting on our relationships, for example. At Grace, we are attuned to the needs of our community and offer avenues for study and reflection.    

"Disciples of Jesus Christ are lifelong learners who influence others to serve."
