One of the main ways we do community and discipleship at Grace Covenant is in our small groups. Our groups meet evenings during the week both at the church building and throughout the south Twin Cities metro.
We aim to do four things in each small group:
Ours is a faith based on the Word of God. We study the Bible together to hear and heed God's voice.
We come before God giving thanks, confessing sin, praising Him for who He is and what He has done, and asking for His help.
We do the hard work of helping each other live out the Gospel of grace in real, everyday life.
We look to the needs of others, in our small group, in our church community, and in our larger community.
We want your children to be loved and nurtured in Jesus Christ. Children aged 3 to grade 8 meet each week (Sept-May, summers off) during our Christian Formation hour to learn a variety of topics and biblical books and themes. We take the summer off and we'll resume our fall semester in October, using curriculum from Great Commissions Publications.
Each fall and spring semester, we teach classes on Sundays that focus on Worship, Discipleship, and Mission. Beginning in October, this year we will address all 3 areas as we learn about life in the covenant community that is the church through a class discussing Ordinary by Michael Horton. At the same time, our high school young women will study the book of Ruth together.
Our Women's Ministry Team serves the women of Grace Covenant through events focused on discipleship and hospitality. The women will resume their Third Thursday meetings for discipleship and relationship this fall, tracing the biblical theme of "Home" through the story arc of Scripture, from Genesis to Revelation.
Our Men's Ministry took a trip to the Boundary Waters of northern Minnesota this fall. Entering the wilderness allowed us to temporarily put away the many distractions in life and to commune with God and our brothers. We focused on discipleship and fellowship, learning Jesus and growing together in Him as we spent time in bible study and enjoying creation!
Bible Study Skills
The Equip-U Workshop helps us to learn and live Jesus through hands-on training of skills we need to grow as disciples of Christ.
Last semester, we had a workshop on the craft of bible study, both for those just beginning to do bible study and those who want to keep improving at it.
Grace Covenant’s church library supports our church in worship, discipleship and mission and in displaying the manifold excellencies of God by providing for the church solid Christian books and literature as well as quality secular books and literature toward the formation of thoughtful Gospel-centered Christian life and community.
This year, we're working on our 2021 Reading Challenge to read 8 books from the library in different categories and time periods.
