Looking for a life giving community on a Sunday morning?  We have them here at Grace Chapel!!  Our Sunday Adult Communities meet during one of the service times and then attend the worship service opposite of when they meet.  These are life giving communities that dig into God’s word and do life with each other.  These are based on your stage in life: from young families to fully retired and anywhere in-between.  If you are looking for a community that you can grow, both spiritually, relationally, and socially with..reach out and contact me and I will get you connected.
