Please sign up online here or at the Information & Resource Table on an upcoming Sunday.

PPT-membership (1)Join us on Saturdays May 31st and June 7th for our upcoming Membership Class. This class is the first step for anyone that is interested in becoming a member of the Northeast congregation of Grace City. During these two Saturdays, Rob Chisholm, Pastor for Music & Spiritual Formation, will be teaching through the Bible’s teachings that call disciples to be committed to a local church and how it describes the role of the local church in the life of a disciple. A continental breakfast will be provided on the 31st and lunch will be provided on the 7th. Child care will not be available. If you sign up, please plan on attending both Saturdays. This class will be offered quarterly, which means it will be offered again shortly if this time around does not work for you or your family to attend both meetings. Please sign up online here or at the Information & Resource table on an upcoming Sunday.
