Adult Ministry Opportunities
Life Stage Groups
Our adult small group classes are an important part of our Sunday morning activities. Beginning at 9:30 a.m., life stage groups meet to study and discuss the Bible. Separate classes for both men and women are divided by life stage and consist of a teacher, ministry leader, care group leader and a handful of students. These small classes provide more opportunity for one-on-one training in God’s Word and building community with other Christians. We also have a traditional Sunday School class for adults that meets in the north overflow of the main auditorium. Come and discover our caring, friendly church family!
Jolly Keenagers is a ministry to the senior adults of our community. Our meeting is packed full of fun, food, and fellowship. We meet every Tuesday morning at 10:00 a.m. Our dedicated, caring Hearts of Gold staff are here to help. Free transportation is available to and from our weekly meetings.
The Grace family has a heart for Spanish-speaking people in our community. A Spanish-taught Sunday school class meets at 9:30am and then a Spanish-language worship service is held at 10:30 am in the Chapel.
Secundino Bautista leads our Spanish-speaking ministry. Secundino came to Christ through Grace's Spanish ministry in 2000 and received his ministerial training from Faith Baptist College in Greenville, SC.
At Grace we have many avenues to express your gifts in music and praise to God.
If you are a member who is interested in joining a choir, orchestra, handbell group or performing special music during the worship service, please contact our music director, David Luttrull.
Here at Grace, we strive to meet not only the physical needs, but also the spiritual needs of the hearing impaired. Our Deaf Sunday School class meets every Sunday morning at 9:30 a.m. All of our services are signed for the deaf. Tom Plew has served as the Deaf Minister at Grace Baptist Church since 1980. His wife, Kathy, is an integral part of this ministry that was begun in 1976.
Our greeter team is a great way to get involved in meeting visitors to Grace and brightening everyone’s morning as they come into worship. Greeters also help people with special needs into the building and provide maps and directions for newcomers.
Our usher crew does a great job of providing service and security during our times of worship at Grace. Ushers assist the greeter team in providing guest services. They also take up the offerings and secure the buildings. Mike Keevin is the head usher and is always looking for more volunteers for the usher crew.
At Grace we want to let our light so shine before men that they would see our good works and glorify our Father in heaven. We have sent work teams as far as Gulfport, Mississippi after Hurricane Katrina and Navajo Indian settlement in Arizona to as close as Henryville, Indiana where tornadoes devastated a small community. We have also sent work teams to help Christian camps and the Creation Museum. If you would be interested in helping on a work team, contact Steve Parker, the work teams coordinator. If you would be interested in helping with maintenance or custodial projects around the church or our Christian academy or helping needy families or widows, contact the church office.
In Paul’s letter to the Romans, he follows eleven chapters of core Christian theology, with practical applications based on the just-mentioned “mercies of God.” In verses 9-21 of chapter 12, Paul describes the marks of a true Christian. One of which is hospitality.
With Romans 12:13 in mind, church members opened their homes to visitors and members of the Grace family. Every 5th Sunday, church family members from different parts of the congregation meet together in hosts’ homes for food, games and fellowship. Not only is House2House a great way to meet new people, but also to share in Christ with them.
Every Sunday a team of volunteers produce slides, video and audio booth support for worship services. Media teams also produce audio and video content for the LiveStream, social media and this website. If you would be interested in helping with the media team, contact the church office.
