Adult Ministries

Because you weren't meant to do life alone, our Adult Ministries are designed to empower adults to experience connection and foster spiritual growth.

Adult ministries exists to draw us together as Kingdom builders in our lives, our homes, our jobs, our community, and our church. We strive to be continually growing in our relationship with Jesus through prayer, studying His word, fellowship and service.


Wednesdays @ Grace

The Wednesday evening adult Bible study is held at 6:30 PM, and runs in correlation with the WNL children's program which runs from autumn to springtime---September to April.

The study is a review of the scriptures in various ways:

  • One way we study, is by taking a single book of the Bible and review it from beginning to end---allowing the book to pose its own theme, as well as answer its own questions. 
  • Another approach is to take a subject (e.g. Biblical prophecy) and peruse the various books of the Bible to investigate their contribution on that subject.
  • Yet another approach is to take a human condition/relation (e.g. marriage) and follow the theme of God's Holy Spirit as he teaches us from scripture the way of Christian behavior.

Together, we hold a sincere interest in study and fellowship as we look into the scriptures---the Word of God, the Bible. And taking a line from an old hymn, we invite you to: "Come then, and join this holy band, and onto glory go....."  

Starting January 2018!

Grace Church offers an adult Bible study on Wednesdays at 6:30 PM, held in the old chapel called the Newkirk room. In this coming year of 2018, we plan on studying through various Old Testament prophetic books, particularly as they address the first coming of the Messiah, Jesus Christ, which has already been accomplished, and also the prophesies pointing to the Lord Jesus’ second coming. Many Old Testament prophesies were fulfilled by the coming of Christ recorded in the few New Testament gospels. But throughout the New Testament there is witness to the return, or second coming of Yeshua Hamashiach (Jesus the Messiah) and our sessions will study the Old Testament prophesies that correlate with and give foundation to these New Testament teachings. These classes will commence on January 10th and run through till spring. There will be a summer hiatus, then classes will resume in September. You are, and will be, most welcomed!
