No matter how big or small a church is, there’s always a need to connect in a more casual group context than a Sunday Morning Worship Service. In our SMALL GROUPS we discuss how it’s going as you learn to follow Jesus, we study the Bible to see how it might help, and simply pray with other Jesus-followers as we keep putting one foot in front of the other, walking with Jesus in the REAL world.
Our SMALL GROUPS meet in different parts of the city; some of them split up demographically, some even along lines of interest and affinity, but all of them are designed to help YOU follow Jesus, one day at a time.
Our current SMALL GROUPS include:
Sermon Based Small Groups
You were just in church a few days ago and you heard a great sermon … but now what? Sermon based small groups are an opportunity to revisit that sermon and explore its applications to our everyday family, work and social situations. Participating in one of these groups gives you a chance to hear each others’ ideas and thoughts, and all of a sudden, the Sunday sermon takes on a whole new depth of meaning.
No reservations required. Just drop in!

Mom and kids Group
Leaders: Annica Napier and Elizabeth MacDonald
Join us with your babies and toddlers (if you have any) for a time of conversation, support, friendship and laughter every Thursday morning from 10 until noon. This isn’t a formal Bible study, but if anyone needs some prayer (who doesn’t?) we will pause and pray together. A great chance for you and your little ones to make some new friends and share some life together. Special note: during the first week of each month we will shift our group time from Thursday morning to Friday at 10:00.
Women's Fellowship & Encouragement Group
Looking to connect? We are a group of all-ages women who meet monthly, generally the 2nd Wednesday of each month from 5:30-7pm, to pray and encourage each other in a casual coffee shop/potluck setting. We also aim to serve the greater community of Women at GCC by organizing small fun-nights, events with speakers, as well as coordinating together to attend retreats/outside events. We are also here for you if you'd just like to meet one-on-one for encouragement/prayer. All are welcome, don't be shy!
Sunday Morning Bible Study and Potluck
Leaders: Jon and Julie Klapwyk
We meet every second Sunday morning after the first church service. Starts at 11:00, serving a potluck lunch at noon, we will grow together in faith, community, service and friendship. Lots of kids at this one!
Women's Bible Study
Leaders: Liz Pol and Mary Anne Sutton
EVERY MONDAY NIGHT at 7:00 pm a group of us get together at Grace Community Church. Beginning Monday April 9th we will be starting a new study written by Jen Wilkin called, “1st Peter – A Living Hope.” We will use it in conjunction with the Sunday sermons from 1st Peter (“On This Rock”) to learn what God has to say to us from the wonderful book of 1st Peter. The study times in themselves are great, but the prayer, support, friendship and encouragement are also a valued part of every get together. Join us any time; you’ll only be a visitor once.
