ministries

We believe that meeting together and serving the Lord through our ministries is a natural outpouring of our faith.

The fellowship offered in the groups is invaluable. Scroll down for more information and get involved today!

children's ministry

We love children here at GraceChurch and have a variety of age appropriate activities. Sunday School for kids of all ages is at 9:30am in the educational building. Then, kids head to GraceKidz Children's Church (preschool - 5th grade) during the 10:30am Worship service. 

Occasionally, we will have a special Children's Sermon and children will remain with their families. Other activities such as Vacation Bible School, Easter Egg Hunt and Trunk-or-Treat are planned throughout the year. Contact our Children's Ministry Director, Patricia Campbell, with any questions. patricia@gracechurchcolumbia.org

Youth Ministry

We teach and encourage our youth to find the truth of Jesus Christ and salvation, so that they can be strong witnesses for the Lord in their lives. Our youth group meets on Sunday mornings for Bible Study (9:30am) and the second Wednesday night of each month from 6:30-8:00 pm. The youth also have several other events planned throughout the year.  Contact our Youth Pastor, Bryan Rogers, if you have any questions!


The Grace Youth Group is also on Twitter and Instagram.
