Spiritual Growth & Fellowship

Chapels are an essential part of our growth and fellowship as a community at Grace. A few times each week, our staff and students join together to grow in their formation as followers of Jesus Christ and gain a deeper understanding of God’s Word. We do this through teaching out of God’s word, responding through worship, as well as discussion and application for our lives.

Join us on Tuesdays and Fridays at 9:45am EST for live Teaching and Response Chapels on Facebook.

CURRENT SERIES

Sermon on the Mount

Our focus this semester is the Sermon on the Mount from Matthew 5-7. Each week we’ll study a different topic within this sermon, discovering how our staff and students can faithfully follow the teachings of Jesus. This includes giving to the needy, how we bear fruit, how we pray, dealing with anxiety or anger, and more. 

In the Spring, we’ll shift to studying Romans and some of the essential teachings of Paul from each chapter of the book.
