Family Ministries

We are here to equip all families with biblical support, training, and resources resulting in transformed families and Gospel impacted communities.

In both marriage enrichment and parental support, we are Bible-based, Gospel-centered, and grace-fueled.

  • Our care is inclusive and diverse, providing support for single, divorced, widowed, blended and traditional families.
  • Our reach extends within and beyond Grace Church, engaging and impacting our communities.
  • Our approach is to pursue wisdom with simple and practical life-stage resources and support.

Marriage Enrichment

We desire to deepen and strengthen marriages, by focusing on Gospel-driven principles, resulting in long-term stability and health of the marriage. 

“Therefore as you have received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in him, having been firmly rooted and now being built up in him and established in your faith, just as you were instructed, and overflowing with gratitude.” (Colossians 2:6-7)

DivorceCare 4 Kids (DC4K) provides kids ages 5-12 with a safe, neutral place to gain an age-appropriate understanding of separation and divorce. For 13 weeks, your children will become involved in a fun, caring group with weekly topics to help your children learn that God's love strengthens them and turn their sadness to hope and their anger to joy.

Each session is filled with motivating and exciting activities such as games, crafts, role-playing, discuss times, journaling, video, and Bible teaching. DC4K offers help and encouragement to children and their families (not counseling).

Child Dedication

If you would like to follow the tradition of publicly dedicating your child to the Lord during a worship service, we invite you to do so on one of our upcoming dedication Sundays after attending a class on child dedication. Attendance at such a class is a prerequisite if this is the first time you are dedicating a child at Grace Church. This class will explore the biblical foundation for child dedications as well as principles for Christian parenting.

Compass 

Compass is a public school ministry of Grace Church. Our mission is to connect, equip, and encourage the Christian community within our public schools. We come alongside Christian educators, parents, and students empowering them not to check their faith at the public school door but to live out their faith on this unique mission field in a God-honoring way.

Since our start in 2013 Compass has brought together a community of over 1,000 Christian educators and families across 50 districts in the metro area and beyond.

The Goals of Compass

  • Connect the Christian public school community at both school and district levels as well as corporately throughout the metro and beyond.
  • Equip educators, parents, and students to understand and live out their religious liberties as Christians within the public schools.
  • Support efforts to bring God's Word into our public schools through student-led Bible studies and Good News Clubs.
  • Equip Christian educators and parents through workshops and seminars on relevant topics.
  • Build strong relationships between church and school, showing Christ's love by meeting our schools' most basic needs.
  • Work in partnership with other Christian organizations and ministries serving within our public schools.
  • Pray faithfully for our schools and those within these walls.
  • Share the vision of public school ministry and encourage churches to intentionally support this mission field.

It is our prayer that Compass can encourage and embolden those called to the mission field of the public schools so that the name of Jesus will be proclaimed on our campuses and His love, truth, and righteousness will flourish in our classrooms.
