Small Groups
 
EVERY SUNDAY @ 11 A.M.
 
 
Life can get complicated once you cross that nebulous threshold into adulthood. That’s why having a group of people to do life with is important.  The adult small groups at Grace Church meet after church on Sundays in the Education Wing and are welcoming for people in all walks of life.  The Connecting Place, Kindred Spirits and Willing Workers are three groups that meet to discuss the Bible, the sermons, and complete service projects together. If you’re looking for a place to make friends, meet with these people after worship!
 
 
Women’s Prayer Group
 
2nd AND 4th THURSDAYS @ 10 A.M.
 
This small group for women is a Bible Study and prayer group that meets for fellowship, encouragement, and prayer support. They also do a book study together on topics like prayer, studying the Bible, and Christian living. This group meets at Wayside Restaurant in Champion.

Music is an expression of the soul, so we want it to be a joyful noise.  Grace Church offers many ways to do that.  Children can participate in holiday programs that entertain big crowds, and adults can be involved in the choir and its holiday programs. We also have a Praise Team that leads worship every Sunday.  If you’re a musician or a singer, come join us!

Panera Men’s Group
 
EVERY FRIDAY @ 7:30-8:30 A.M.
 
This small group of adult men gather to study books of the Bible at a time while sharing life and discussing how to live a Christian life with concern for current events.  Often, regular customers at Panera are invited into their conversations and get involved.  This small group has been meeting for 10 years and is always looking for more to join. This is held at Panera Bread on Elm Road.
 
Circle of Hope

Affiliated with the National Alliance on Mental Health (NAMI), this interest group covers many topics related to mental health and wellness. This is a positive support  group to be a part of for anyone who wants to be more aware or who needs to connect with people who have similar struggles in life.  This group meets in the Welcome Center of Grace Church.

Knitters and Quilters
 
KNITTERS: EVERY THURSDAY @ 10 A.M.
QUILTERS: 1st AND 3rd THURS. @  11 A.M.
 
This program is as much of an interest group as it is a ministry.  Women gather to chat and eat lunch as they knit and quilt together in the Welcome Center.  This is a calming and fun activity, and some of the women knit hats and other items as donation.  Grace Church gives these items to families in need through our Food Pantry and to the local school systems that we support.
