A place for you to grow
Our theme for 2014 is Growing in Grace. We are studying the message of grace and its profound impact on our lives. We need God's grace not only for salvation, but also to be sanctified more into the image of Christ. It's our desire that as you become a part of the Grace family, you will find yourself growing in grace!
