G.R.A.C.E. Connections are the congregation in mission. They are groups of 4 to 12 people who come together and are intentionally led in the mission statement of our congregation:

† Sharing God’s Grace

† Living His Word

† Making Disciples

The Core Values of G.R.A.C.E. Connections are:

  • Growing…by reaching out, witnessing, and forming new groups
  • Relating…and connecting with each other as the body of Christ
  • Acting…in Christian service and mission
  • Caring…and praying for each other and the world
  • Enriching…personal growth and spiritual transformation through Bible study


You are challenged, each and every one of you, to be a part of our Grace Connection Groups. These will be small groups that focus on the study of the Word, a devotion, and prayer. Some have asked questions and to clarify if you join a connection you are not tied solely to that connection as you are welcome to go from group to group to see which one fits you best. Connection leaders will not be upset or frustrated if you move around.

If the time and/or day does not work for you please notify the leader of the connection(s) you are interested in joining, Stephen Boyles or Pator Pase and we will work it out to fit everyone’s schedule as best as we can. Please prayerfully consider joining a connection as this an important ministry for us here at Grace Lutheran Church.
