Discipleship Classes

Grace Discipleship focuses on personal spiritual renewal, biblical and theological foundations and practical instruction to experience what it means to live a life of renewal and spiritual vitality. Our desire is for everyone to grow deeper in their gospel understanding.

Join Andrew Kerhoulas, Pastor of Discipleship, over on our new GMR Discipleship group on Facebook. We simply want to provide a space for online interaction about following Jesus together as a church.

Women Only Studies

New! Summer Book Study: Every-other-Tuesday evening, June 14-July 26

  • Description: Women of Grace are invited to a new summer book study going through "Humble Roots" by Hannah Anderson. She writes, "When we believe that we are responsible for our own existence, when we trust our ability to care for ourselves, we will have nothing but stress because we are unequal to the task." Isn't that something we all wrestle with- "taking the reins," as it were? Hannah reminds us we are the creature (not the Creator) and with that humble status we find true rest, when we are submitted to the yoke of Christ. We hope this could be a respite for your soul this summer.
  • When: Tuesdays, 6:45-8:15pm, June 14 - July 26 (every other Tuesday)
  • Where: The Canter's home - Please contact for details.
