Mission Families

Every member and/or regular attendee of Grace Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) belongs to one of our Mission Families.  These groups enjoy fellowship and take ownership of various projects at the church and in the community.  Each Mission Family is also responsible for church cleaning and Communion preparation duties during alternate months of the year.

If you are a member or friend of Grace and are not listed with a Mission Family, it must be an oversight on our part!  We want everyone who participates in our church to be assigned to a mission family.  Your involvement in these "small group" settings is extremely important to the life of this church.  Please contact the church office at 426-1233 to be added to a group listing.
