Heart for the House is an annual opportunity for us to give above and beyond our tithes by giving an offering for the future provision of the church. God is doing big things in and through Grace City, but we know He wants to do more. Heart for the House makes a way for these possibilities to be turned into a reality.
City Groups provide an environment where people are encouraged to draw closer to God and to connect with others in meaningful, life-giving relationships, and to help each other grow in their relationship with Christ.
- Online Sign Ups begin Sept. 3rd
