Life change happens best in the context of relationship. To do that, we need to move from rows on Sunday mornings to circles through out the week. At Grace, we create environments called Life Groups where you have the opportunity to grow in your faith with the other people who attend Grace.
On April 15th, following each worship service, you will have the opportunity to meet our Life Group leaders, learn a little about what makes each group unique, and sign up to be a part of our spring semester. We have groups that meet almost every night of the week and even a few on Sunday mornings. There are groups that are centered around various activities, others that team up on outreach projects, and still others that jump into various types of Bible studies.
Don't miss Life Group Link on April 15th after every worship service! Click here to see a listing of all of our current life groups.

Speaker Andrea Coli has been described as "having the ability to transform a room into a fun atmosphere while tempering it with the truth of God’s Word.” She uses her background in improv comedy and her biblical knowledge to inspire others to discover God’s unique call for their lives. Whether she is speaking in front of a group, exploring San Francisco with her husband, or carting her kids around in the minivan, Andrea is always on the lookout for God’s truth in everyday places. In fact, she wrote a book all about it called “Scriptless: What I Learned About God on the Las Vegas Strip”. Andrea received her MA in Theology from Fuller Theological Seminary and partners in ministry with her husband Chris, who is Senior Pastor of CrossWinds Church in Livermore, California. When you listen to Andrea, you might find yourself laughing, crying or a little bit of both, but what you know for sure is that you will be led on a journey to the heart of something very special that God has for you

Can you imagine what could happen if we gave control of our life to God? It’s scary, but the benefits are world-altering. The story of Elisha challenges us to answer God’s calling and take the risks that are necessary to do His will. It's time we start taking risks and making decisions the world doesn’t understand. Come see what life can look like when we let go… when we decide to have Ridiculous Faith.
