CHURCH IS COMMUNITY

The Bible tells us that the church is not a building or a place but the people – and we feel that is true with Grace River. We are part of a loving community that values one another, our unique abilities, and has a passion for helping. We have each been given spiritual gifts to serve each other in many ways, to make our world an even better place.

GETTING INVOLVED

Grace River Church offers several areas to serve and get involved. As one person, you can make a difference – together we can make tremendous strides to leave this place better than we found it.

If unfamiliar with all of the serving opportunities, see below for a list of areas where you can serve and have fun with other people.
