2024 Week of Prayer (Jan 28th – Feb 2nd)


Join us for our 2024 Week of Prayer! We will be dedicating the last week of January to pray for revival in the next generation! Although they are faced with a myriad of challenges around mental health, identity, and financial insecurity, we believe there is an opportunity for Generation Z to encounter the Lord, finding hope and freedom in Christ!

  • Continuous prayer will be from Jan 28 to Feb 2.
  • We will have 15-minute prayer slots available throughout the day from 7 am to 11 pm.
  • Prayer guides will be available at each site to assist and guide your time.
  • You can sign up online for as many slots as you like and pray wherever you are!
  • We will also have worship nights from Jan 28 to Feb 1 at New Grace, starting at 6:30.

Please join us in lifting the next generation by signing up for a time slot here! If you have any questions, contact stephanie.tennant@gracegathering.com


Footsteps of Jesus (Feb 23-24)


Have you ever wanted to see and hear the actual places Jesus walked?

On Feb. 23, Bible scholar Bob Rognlien and Film Director Andrew Chalmers will be showing “The Footsteps of Jesus,” a free pre-screening film release based on the life and locations of Jesus. This will take you through a journey to the Holy Land, showing what it would be like to make the pilgrimage yourself.

On Feb. 24 they will be leading a virtual/multimedia experience of walking through the life of Jesus. The common response from most is that once you experience this virtual walk-thru, you will never read the Bible the same way again. It will be as close as you can get to visiting the places Jesus walked while staying in Fort Wayne. Follow this link to sign up for either or both of these amazing opportunities.

Naturally Supernatural (Feb 17th)


As we follow Jesus, we know we’re called to imitate Him in every way—but that leaves some of us wondering, “What about the miraculous things Jesus did? Should we imitate those things, too? Is that even possible? Is it biblical?”

We’re excited to offer a workshop that answers just those questions. Whether you’ve been following Jesus for decades or just a short while, or whether you are totally comfortable with the miraculous (or totally uncomfortable) you’ll find this biblical, simple introduction to hearing God and healing will encourage you and challenge you in life-changing ways.

The workshop will include various segments, such as times of teaching input, Q&A, worship, small group processing, times of training, and personal application (as well as breaks and lunch).

This is the second in a series of four workshops we’ll be hosting in the coming months. Here is a quick glance at the title of each workshop:

  1. Living a Naturally Supernatural Life
  2. Hearing God
  3. Healing and the Spiritual Gifts
  4. Spiritual Warfare

Mystery Dinners (Evenings in February)


Mystery Dinners are a great way to meet people here at the East Site! You can sign up today to attend or host a Mystery Dinner in your home. You will get the chance to meet people in the congregation you may not know, serve, and hear each other’s stories. This is a practical way to love people well and connect the church. If signing up as an attendee, you will hear details about your assigned dinner shortly after signing up. The last day to sign up will be on Sunday, February 4th, and you can sign up here.
