We want you to know Jesus and grow in your relationship with Him.This process of knowing and growing is called Discipleship, where you become a follower of Jesus and then help others along that same path. This happens as we study the Bible in relationship with others. We offer the following opportunities for discipleship at Grace:
In Discover Grace, you'll hear what it means to believe the good news of Jesus Christ (the gospel) and the vision and mission of Grace Fellowship as we seek to live out that gospel in Clanton and beyond. Discover Grace is required for people who want to join Grace Fellowship as members, but is open to everyone who would like to learn more about who we are and what we believe.
Adult discipleship takes three main forms at Grace Fellowship. Growth Groups are informal, midweek small groups that meet in various homes throughout our community. We enjoy dinner and Bible study together. Growth Groups are a great way to meet other people get plugged into the life of the church. Equip Classes meet on Sunday mornings at 9:45 and cover different topics on the Bible, Theology or the Christian life. Nursery and classes are available for your children also. Discipleship Groups are small groups of men or women that meet for 1 year and focus more intensely on spiritual transformation. If you're interested in joining a D-Group, talk with our pastor or a Growth Group leader.
Our ministry to 7th – 12th grade students offers a youth Sunday School and a Wednesday night Bible study called Salt & Light that includes dinner, engaging time in the Word, and plenty of fellowship and games. Our students also have opportunities to go on youth trips and mission projects.
Children’s ministry covers grades Birth-6th. GraceKids is our Wednesday night program that includes pizza, Bible-teaching, and a time for games. Each Sunday morning we have Sunday School for all ages. We also offer a nursery for children 4 and under on Wednesdays and Sundays. We are so grateful for the opportunities that God has given us to shepherd and care for children through this ministry.
