Ministries

Community Groups / Mid-Week Small Group Studies

Community Groups meet midweek in the homes of members within our congregation.

We begin each evening with fellowship and prayer. Using Sunday’s Sermon, a book of the Bible, a video series, a book or topic, we have a study time that includes discussion and group interaction. We begin and conclude our time together with fellowship.

We believe these groups offer a wonderful opportunity for congregants to connect in a small group setting with others in the church and together promote growth in one another’s lives.

Current Study: We are currently reviewing the Sermon Study Questions, which are posted every Tuesday to help us further meditate on Sunday’s sermon.

Meeting Times: Community groups meet every Wednesday or Thursday at 7:00 pm. For more information on locations and groups contact the church office @ (949) 388-5537.

Men’s Ministry

There is a special blessing when men come together and fellowship. We are called to be the spiritual leaders of our home and church, and we are best able to do that as we purpose to build real relationships with one another and share our joys and victories in life as well as our trials and fears. By determining to meet together, the “iron sharpening iron” of Proverbs becomes a reality.

We periodically have outings for the men to have fun and fellowship (examples, BBQ, movie night, volleyball, hockey game, etc) and be looking for our annual Men’s Retreat. All men in the church are welcome, including the young men (Jr. High and older). It’s a good environment for young men to see the Christian life modeled and to become well-acquainted with other men in the church.

Study Times:  1st Saturday of each month at 7:30 a.m. We are now meeting in the Church Fellowship Hall, 24600 La Plata, Laguna Niguel, CA 92677

                            (Next Study meets Saturday, February 4th)

We are currently studying through “Understanding Dispensationalists” by Vern Poythress

Women’s Ministry

The special bond Christian women share is a gift from God. We are called to study and become grounded in Scripture together. In addition, we grow communally as we apply His precepts to our everyday lives; resulting in God being glorified by minds transformed by the Word.

Please consider joining in any of the following gatherings as we become grounded, grow communally and glorify God together as sisters in Christ. CONTACT: Deb Laurie

We would love to have you join us.

Children’s Ministry

The Children’s Ministry at Grace Church provides care for children from infancy through 6th grade during our Sunday morning service. By learning to worship the Lord through song, prayer, and the study of His Word, kids have a lot of fun!

During the Worship Service:

At Grace Church parents are given the option to have their children worship with them in the Worship Service or have them attend the Children’s Ministry. We welcome all children to worship with us in the Worship Service.

Curriculum:

The Sunday school curriculum is meant to point children to Christ, our Savior and Lord. The children learn of their need to trust completely in God’s grace and mercy for eternal life. Short questions and answers about God and the Bible are introduced in the classroom to teach the children the wonderful truths of the Bible. The children are eager to learn through a “questions and answers” approach because it makes God’s Word accessible and comprehensible. Scripture proof texts are learned and memorized so children can “be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks [them] to give the reason for the hope [they] have [in Christ]…with gentleness and respect” (1 Peter 3:15).
