Groups Starting This Week


Believing Jesus: The Class   Learn More
This will introduce you to the core DNA of Grace Gathering and train you in everyday ways to live and lead like Jesus. On top of that, it’s the first step in discovering how to get connect into leading or joining a group or missional community.

Church @ 9
Every Sunday morning in the Family Room at 9:00am. Church @ 9 creates a space for deep exploration of the scriptures, where we come together to share insights and perspectives that contribute to the growth and strengthening of the entire body, as exemplified in 1 Corinthians 14:26.

Tuesday Morning Study
Tuesday morning study is a discussion group that seeks to explore a number of topics found in scripture. Currently, this group is going through the study, “Gospel On The Ground: The Grit & Glory of The Church in Acts” Contact Jo Willer for more information: ibawe@aol.com. Signup sheet at the Connections Desk.

Fall Groups: The Prayer Course


This Fall, Grace Gathering North will be going on a shared journey through The Prayer Course, an 8-week course through the Lord’s prayer (aka that moment when Jesus taught his followers and friends to pray like him). We want everyone to be a part of this journey in some way!

Groups start the last week of September (24-30) and run for 9 weeks. You can sign up here. (We even have a hybrid group option if enough people would be interested in doing most weeks on Zoom.)

Youth Gathered Night this Sunday


We’re gathering teenagers from all sites for a night of worship and prayer. We’ll play a game, seek God in Scripture and in prayer, and learn to live into our identity together. (For the full schedule, see the Events tab on the app!)

Unity Night at Saint Francis Next Friday


As many of you know, last Spring we had a joint worship service between Grace Gathering and St. Vincent Catholic Church. It was a full house and blessed so many people! We are doing another unity service with several protestant and catholic churches on Sept. 22 from 7:00-8:30 at the University of Saint Francis. All are welcome.

We’re Hosting PrayerWorks on Sept. 23


As a congregation, we are hosting the PrayerWorks 24/7 prayer room on Saturday, September 23rd from 11am to 8pm. Our signup form is now available, both here and on the app on the Events tab!

Parenting is Discipling” Workshop on Sept. 23


The East Site Children’s Ministry is inviting you to a workshop led by Chris and Kathy Norman where you will discover that the primary goal of parenting is discipleship. This event is Saturday, September 23 from 9-11am, and you can register here.
