More About GCC
We at Grace Community Church recognize that our number one purpose is to exalt the Lord God Almighty. Along with this we have a responsibility to provide a place of Christian Fellowship for others of like precious faith. We recognize that we are to be disciples of Jesus Christ and that we are to make disciples of Jesus Christ, both locally and throughout the world. All of this is done by the power of the Holy Spirit working through us, not as an act of our own strength. Our common goal: Lifting Jesus up that all may come to know Him!

Pastors and Elders
The pastors and elders are responsible for the spiritual oversight, direction, and care of the church family. As directed in 1 Peter 5:2, they willingly serve as shepherds of the flock that is under their care, serving as overseers according to God's call.
The General Board at Grace Community Church consists of the Pastors, Elders, and three rotating members who gather monthly to discuss and seek direction for the ongoing administrative affairs of the church.
