GRACE Small GROUPS

GRACE SMALL GROUPS are how we build community at Grace Church on the Mount. Being a part of a GSG is the best way to build long lasting friendships.  In a GSG , you’ll connect with people in a similar stage of life, or with similar interests. Together, you’ll build community and foster spiritual growth. Whether you are studying discussion questions from the sermon the week before, reading through a book of the Bible together, serving together in a community project, our Grace Small Groups are where we grow together in our relationship with God and His people.

If you are interested in hosting or facilitating a group, please contact Scott McCrea at scott@grace4families.com OR joining a group, sign up on our "JOIN A SMALL GROUP" page or if you have questions send an email to smallgroups@grace4families.com.

WHAT TO EXPECT:

Celebrate Recovery is a biblical and balanced program that helps us overcome our hurts, hang-ups, and habits.  It is based on the actual words of Jesus rather than psychological theory.  It is designed as a program to help those struggling with hurts, habits and hang-ups by showing them the loving power of Jesus Christ through a recovery process. 

Celebrate Recovery meets at Grace Church on the Mount, every Friday beginning at 7:00 pm in Room 100.  Come each week for the first hour “Big Meeting” and stay for the one hour confidential, small group discussion led by trained leaders in separate groups for men and women. It is a safe, healing and transforming time.
