Ministries at Grace

Jesus told us, his disciples, to make disciples of all nations (Acts 1:8). One of the most important values of this church is our vision of seeing more people become more like Jesus. 

It begins in our own community, and spreads overseas through our missions support initiatives. Church members are involved in a variety of ministries from things as simple as beautifying the church grounds, to preparing the church bulletins, preparing the Communion elements, providing beautiful worship music, to  making people feel welcomed when they arrive and through helping children come to know and grow in the life walked with Jesus. As we meet together in any of our missions we disciple each other through fellowship, prayer and supporting each other in love as we become more like Jesus ourselves.

Missions
 
Our Missions Team coordinates financial support and hand-on mission efforts in our local area as well as nationally and internationally. Our purpose is to “help our congregation and those we support to express the love of Christ in word and deed to everyone”.
 

       Music Ministry          

 
 Our music ministry consists of members from the congregation who have a passion to praise the Lord with either their voices or their talents to play hand bells. The music is a mix of traditional hymns and contemporary songs. Click here to find out how you can become a part of the music ministry at Grace.

Outreach Ministry

Our Outreach Team exists to “equip the congregation to meet people where they are and to plant seeds of faith in order to grow them into disciples of Jesus in the family of God.” We have responsibility for our welcoming ministry including our Welcome Center and Greeter/Usher Team. In addition, Outreach coordinates events in the community for our congregation to reach out to our neighbors with love and invitation of Christ.

Worship Support Team
 
The Worship Support Team at Decatur Grace assists with preparing communion the first Sunday of each month and at other special times during the year.
