"This was and continues to be a huge help in our marriage. It helped us talk about money, priorities and planning for things we care about. We don't worry about what we'll do if an emergency comes up, or if we'll have enough to pay for Christmas presents, and we don't argue about spending money to have fun. I highly recommend taking this course at least once in your life. We've done it a half dozen times and made our teenage daughter take it!" ~ Pastors David and Carolyn

Children's Ministry at Grace

At Grace United Methodist, we focus our teaching not only on learning the Bible, but also on helping the children see how the Bible relates to their own lives.  We know that children can have a wonderful relationship with Jesus and can trust God.  We know the lessons they learn from the Bible can help them make wise choices, grow as a Disciple of Jesus, and treat others in this community and the world the same way they hope to be treated.  Our goal is to come alongside parents, grandparents, and caregivers to help kids develop their faith, shining the light of Jesus for the transformation of the world.

Groups for Adults

Like breathing in and out are important, spending time alone and in community for prayer, study and conversation is essential for the spiritual formation work God wants to do in us. Here are some community group options for adults happening at Grace.

  • The seekers

    This group meets on Sunday mornings 9:15-10:15 a.m. in the Wesley Room adjacent to the Sanctuary. They are reading through the Bible together using a curriculum guide called "Walk Through the Bible." Contact the group leader, Marshia Hewitt.

  • The soul keepers

    Meets Sunday mornings 10:15 - 11:15 a.m. Six week Bible study starting Sunday, December 10 – Tactics by Gregory Koukl. The study will provide a natural way to explore the proven techniques that radio host and founder of Stand on Reason, Greg Koukl, use to get the student into the driver’s seat in discussions about faith, keeping any conversation moving along with thoughtful, artful tact. The study provides a real-world game plan for communicating the compelling truth about Christianity with confidence and grace. Meets in room 4 upstairs in the church building and is facilitated by Jeff Walton and Karen Mathis.

  • BYKOTA (Be ye kind one to another)

    Meets Sunday morning 9:15 - 10:15 a.m. This group uses seasonal Bible readings to guide their reflection and discussion. This winter, our lessons explore the twofold nature of faith as belief and action. Selections from Acts show various examples of proclaiming faith in Christ. In the Book of Daniel, we see faith in action as sincere, obedient, bold, and strong. The lessons from several epistles show how our actions as individuals and as communities demonstrate our faith in Christ. Meets in the Pastor's office and is led by Richard Gibson.

  • Companions in Christ

    A spiritual formation group for women that meets Wednesdays from 10:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. Companions in Christ focuses on your experience of God and your discovery of spiritual practices that help you share more fully in the life of Christ. Contact Debra Gibson for more information.

  • Monday morning mens group

    Group of men meets Mondays from 7:00 - 8:15 a.m. at the Maple Street Biscuit Company across from the Grace Church Building on Cordova. The group explores faith, listens for God's word through the Bible, supports and prays for one another in following Jesus. Contact Pat Cummings for more information.

Middle and High School Students

All middle and high school students are invited to join other youth at Grace each Wednesday evening, 6:30-8 pm. Our time together includes food, games and lesson/discussion. We pray for one another and have friendships that go beyond what school we go to, what grade we are in, whether we're a jock or a nerd and all the other labels culture puts on youth. During the summer we do fun activities with our friends at First United Methodist of St. Augustine. We occasionally go on retreats and do mission work. We learn about God's love for others and how we can be God's hands and feet in the world. If you have questions, please contact Pastor Carolyn. You can also stay connected by liking our Facebook page.
