The hope of Local Missions is to share the love and truth of Jesus with people outside the walls of Grace Bible Church.
Grace helps people grow as disciples in three main ways: Equipping, Engaging, and Exalting. The primary purpose of local missions is to engage. We do this by volunteering in our neighborhood and nearby communities where our people are meeting tangible needs. Our hope is to love others in such a way that people ask, “Why?,” leading to the opportunity to share Jesus.
If you have any questions or wish to engage in any of these ministries, please contact T.S. Weaver, Engage Pastor/Missions and Men.

Through a service Grace Bible Church has signed up for, Gloo, our church can serve people online who are looking for hope or answers in a time of need. It works like this: Someone sees an ad online or on TV promoting a website like churchescare.com. They engage on the site and send a message, which is quickly routed to us. You respond with a voice of hope and connection in their life.
