2019

"

"Give thanks to him who alone does mighty miracles. His faithful love endures forever. Give thanks to him who made the heavens so skillfully. His faithful love endures forever. Give thanks to him who placed the earth on the water. His faithful love endures forever. Give thanks to him who made the heavenly lights -- His faithful love endures forever. The sun to rule the day, His faithful love endures forever and the moon and stars to rule the night. His faithful love endures forever."

 

- Psalm 136: 4-9

2019 has been a busy year! We have seen God move in some amazing ways, and we want to share everything with you, Grace River. We wouldn't be here without you and your commitment to seeing this ministry succeed. I am so excited to share the work the Spirit has done in all of us, and how much we have grown as a community.

 

Here at Grace River Church we are all about transformation. We want our church to be a place where every generation can experience transformation through Jesus Christ. We would not be able to accomplish this vision without the help of you, the people. I personally want to thank all of our amazing pastoral staff, congregation, and volunteers who work tirelessly around the clock to ensure that every service goes smoothly and everyone feels welcome from the time they walk through the doors to the time they walk out of them. We literally could not survive without you and we thank God for you all!

This is an exciting time to be a part of Grace River Church! Check out all of the information below to see what we have been up to.

TRANSFORMING LIVES

"I learned about God's grace and faithfulness when I started coming to Grace River. Attending church every Sunday and being a part of Bible studies has helped me to be more understanding and patient. My life changed when I accepted Jesus as my Savior. He is in control of my life. I realized that all the negativity that I bring into my life can be stopped by reading and practicing Jesus' words."


- Aneya Harrell

"Since coming to Grace River, I've been embraced by the community both literally and figuratively. I have been blessed to recieve opportunities to serve, grow spiritually, and meet other brothers and sisters in Christ."


- Donnovan Campbell
