Worship ministry

Sunday worship services are the highlight of our week together as community. Led by those with music, production and other creative talents, our Worship Ministry has a single focus and mission:
to lead and disciple the local church in God-glorifying, Spirit-led, awestruck-worship of Jesus Christ.

Through music, communion, scripture reading, testimonies or creative video, the Worship Ministry seeks to bring honor to Christ in every worship service they lead.

To learn more about this important weekly ministry, contact our Director of Worship Ministry, Aaron Buehrer at abuehrer@mygracecommunity.org.


Community Groups are one of the main ways at Grace Community Bible Church to grow in your walk with the Lord and connect in meaningful relationships with others.

Community Groups meet throughout the week for Bible study, mutual ministry, and fellowship. You're sure to discover a group that fits with your busy schedule as well as walk of life. We encourage all members and regular attenders to be active in a Community Group at Grace Community as part of their intentional pursuit of growing in life and faith.

Whether they are at home, at work or on the road, they are quick to pray on behalf of those calling out to the Lord in a time of need or joy.

local & global missions

Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age. (Matthew 28:19-20)

And He said to him, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.” This is the great and foremost commandment. (Matthew 22:37-38)

The mission of our ministry is to fulfill the Great Commission in the spirit of the Great Commandment. Essentially, we want to get the Word out and help make & mobilize mature disciples of Jesus Christ… a calling that encompasses our heart for local outreach and global missions as well.

Grace Community Bible Church is a church that takes seriously the commission Christ gave to His disciples to go and make disciples of all nations (Matthew 28:18-20). Because of this conviction, we are actively involved in taking the Gospel to the nations through individual involvement (prayer, finances and sending) and through strategic partnerships (missionaries, mission agencies, church planting agencies).

We want to use our resources and material blessings, not for our own comforts, but to further His kingdom and to extend His fame, because He is worth it! We desire to partner with organizations devoted to defending the neglected, empowering the powerless, bringing hope to the hopeless, and sending gifted, called people out to extend the Gospel to those who have never heard of Jesus and His Kingdom. This isn’t “Missions.” This is God’s mission, the mission of every man, woman, and child who follows Christ.

This is our mission.
