Please reach out to the church staff or council members about the various opportunities to be involved in the work of ministry, to be built up in the body of Christ.
And he gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the shepherds and teachers, to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ, until we all attain to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to mature manhood, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ, so that we may no longer be children, tossed to and fro by the waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by human cunning, by craftiness in deceitful schemes.
- Join the Grace Congregation for a time of prayer the first Sunday of every month in room 216, 30 minutes prior to start of services (8:30am & 10am). All are Welcome!!
- Request to be added to the Church Prayer Chain to lift up one another in prayer as we journey through life together.

Spiritual Mentoring: Connecting Women to Women
“Older women similarly are to be reverent in their behavior, not malicious gossips nor addicted to much wine, teaching what is right and good, so that they may encourage the young women to tenderly love their husbands and their children, to be sensible, pure, makers of a home [where God is honored], good-natured, being subject to their own husbands, so that the word of God will not be dishonored.” Titus 2:3-5
Following the directive of Titus 2, we desire to provide an opportunity for older and younger women to connect with one another for the purpose of growing in their faith and living for God’s glory.
The intention of these small groups is to build relationships for women in different seasons of life, college age and up. Our books and discussions center around Biblical womanhood and deepening our relationship with Jesus. This year we will be reading together, Closer Than a Sister by Christina Fox. We will explore the topic of Biblical friendship. We begin in October and end in April.
Our approach to mentoring is not a program but rather a lifestyle. This could include spontaneous mentoring moments, intentional one-on-one mentoring and/or asking to be matched with another woman.
If you desire is to be mentored we encourage you to:
Interact with older women at church or in small groups.
If the Lord brings someone to mind, ask her.
If you have any questions regarding the one-on-one mentoring please contact Elizabeth Jore. 651.246.4874, firstname.lastname@example.org.
HEART AND HOME GATHERING
Older and younger women connect through faith, fellowship and homemaking tips. This fun and informal setting may lead to the beginning of a one-on-one relationship. We will be meeting this year in various homes, Nov. 13, Jan. 15 and Mar. 19.
In these optional gatherings mentors will be encouraged and equipped through prayer, discussing various topics and sharing resources related to spiritual mentoring. This year women who are 50’s and up are meeting once a month to read Spiritual Mothering by Susan Hunt. This book will encourage us to develop mentoring relationships. We begin the 4th week of September and will meet twice in April to conclude. During the month of April we will read a practical booklet on mentoring called, Spiritual Mentoring: Connecting Women to Women by Elizabeth Jore and Peggy Weihrauch.
