Transforming Our Community, Together. 

Jesus told us, his disciples, to make disciples of all nations. One of the most important values of this church is our mission to the world. It begins in our own community and spreads overseas to every nation. Grace Church is located on the Northwest Side of Warren, Ohio.  Our sanctuary is over 50 years old, but our building has been here much longer than that.

Loving God, Loving Our Neighbors: A Brief History

 

Local Outreach

Grace Church is passionate about making a difference on the Northwest Side of Warren. We regularly participate in missions projects that benefit organizations in our community, like Someplace Safe—a shelter for women in abusive relationships. The Grace Church Food Pantry serves literally hundreds of people each month. Throughout the year, we provide fun events for families, including Trunk-or-Treat in the fall and Eggstravaganza in the spring. We also have strong relationships with Summit Academy and McGuffey Elementary Schools, where we partner with them to meet needs and help families in Warren.

Friendship

As Cheers figured out, “Sometimes you want to go where everybody knows your name.”  It’s much more fun to do church with people who know you, like you, love you – etc.  We were brought together because we love God and want to be more like Jesus, and that focus is essential for communities to grow through conflict in healthy ways. So being friends isn’t necessary, but it sure is more fun! Whether it’s just swapping names, or going to baseball games, Grace has a family atmosphere that you can be involved in however you feel comfortable.

 

 

Family Services

In many stages of life, families may find themselves in need of wise counsel.  Marriages can be difficult to maintain. Misunderstanding, confusion, resentment, and anger can flare up in any marriage. Several couples at our church serve other families as marriage counselors. Their role in listening, understanding, helping, and encouraging struggling couples has, by God’s grace, saved marriages, and repaired relationships. Couples have found fresh hope and new joy in a warm and fulfilling relationship with their spouse. Our parent group, the Place for Parents, meets every other Tuesday night and focuses on encouraging parents and helps parents meet and make friends with other parents.  Learn more about The Place for Parents here.
 
 

Music & Worship

Worship is what realigns our hearts with God and energizes us to walk with Him throughout the week. Instrumentalists and vocalists can find a number of opportunities to serve others with their gifts. The Grace Church Choir sings each week, and blesses us with their talents each Christmas with a cantata. 
 
 
 

Prayer

Prayer cannot be overestimated. Prayer moves the hand of God. Our Church is a body of believers dependent upon prayer, and committed to God’s sovereignty. Each Sunday, during the morning service, a team of volunteers is praying for the ministry of the Word. Throughout the week, volunteers from our Prayer Warriors team pray for their pastor, a list of church members, any special requests, and missionary prayer needs. Each Wednesday, the church comes together for a special time of prayer and Bible study.
