Life transformation happens most when people move from a row (sitting in a church service) to a circle (living in a community with others). Grace Groups offer opportunities to connect with God and connect with others in the context of regular meeting times.

Although most Grace Groups meet in homes, there are some that meet in coffee shops, restaurants, parks, or at Grace. Regardless of when they meet, where they meet, or what they study, we encourage every Grace Group to Love, Learn and Lead!

What is a Grace Group?

A Grace Group is a small Christ-centered community of people who build each other up and spur each other on toward spiritual growth.

The purpose of a Grace Group is to provide healthy Christian community that facilitates care and nurtures spiritual development.

When do Grace Groups meet?

Grace Church offers many options for getting connected into Grace Groups. The timing and location of each group depends on the group itself. Click here for a list of all Grace Groups.

Grace is passionate about seeing men become the leaders God has called them to be. We want to see men move from where they currently are to where God wants them to be!

Men's Quarterly Breakfast

The main connection point for men at Grace is the Quarterly Men’s Breakfast. We gather together one Saturday morning each quarter to hear from some of Kansas City’s best speakers, pastors, and leaders.

Additional events and activities are offered throughout the year allowing men the opportunity to connect, and make friends that can both encourage and challenge one another.

Men's Grace Groups

From these events, we encourage men to get plugged into Grace Groups that are specifically focused on intentional men-to-men discipleship. Hundreds of men are currently going through the Design For Discipleship books and are experiencing amazing life-change! Click to find a Grace Group.

To view all men’s events, please visit the "Men" category on the online calendar.

It is Grace’s heart for women to live in community…building lasting friendships that go beyond the superficial. The ultimate goal is for these friendships to be encouraging and always pointing to a stronger relationship with Christ. We understand the hectic lives of the modern woman; therefore, we offer a variety of connection points.

Girlfriends@Grace

Girlfriends@Grace consists of monthly opportunities to have fun, meet other ladies, and be inspired to live for something greater than themselves. Sometimes it is as simple as dinner and a movie, and sometimes it is a large gathering.  We also have events geared towards worship, teaching, and focused time to connect deeper with other ladies and hear from God.

MOMS of Grace

MOMS of Grace is a ministry of Grace@Home that exists to support, equip, and encourage moms in the journey of motherhood. We strive to create an atmosphere of Christ-like love and grace as we learn together how to invest in the spiritual health of our children ultimately seeking to raise lifetime followers of Christ. MOMS of Grace is for moms in every season of motherhood. We will be meeting the 2nd and 4th Mondays of the month (Sept-May) from 9:15-11:30am at Grace Church.

In addition, we schedule a monthly play day (third Monday of the month).

Explore the Parks is for moms, nannies, and other ladies come together with their kids to explore different parks, pools and kid-friendly museums. This happens every Tuesday in the summer from 9:30am to noon.  Pack a lunch and make it a picnic!
