When Dan and Amy Johnson married and started attending Grace Church about five years ago, they knew that they wanted to become members and get connected. At that time, however, they had no idea the impact that community would have on their marriage and their...

In thinking about college, many words or concepts may come to mind. Freedom. Fun. Self-discovery. Independence. However, in light of our church’s recent teaching series, I, as a college senior, have come to associate much of my college experience with a word without these positive...

Our culture is obsessed with our bodies. We love to hate them. We love to pamper them. We hide them, abuse them, starve them, stuff them, and flaunt them. Whether you adore your body or loathe it, the core of the preoccupation is the same...

As I have reflected on the number of stories and changes I have witnessed in the last five years in Grace Church Kids, there is a theme of life change and growth that continues to come to mind. It is the growth and development of...

Many of our members are benefitting from participating in our Care Ministry groups. We asked Deb Fowler, from our Powdersville Campus, to share a little bit about her experience in this past fall’s GriefShare. Hear Deb’s experience in her own words. "Initially, I was hesitant to...

I graduated from Clemson University just a few short years ago. Since then, I have attended upwards of thirty weddings—having the honor to stand with six of my best friends as bridesmaid. My life is not quite the story of 27 dresses just yet, but...

It had been one of those days. You know the one…the house is a wreck, the kids aren’t getting along, you haven’t showered or even finished the half bagel you started to eat at breakfast. And then you look at the time and realize it’s...

In December of this year, my husband and I will celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary.  We were just 24 and 25 years old when we married.  After ten months of dating, six months of engagement, four premarital counseling sessions through our church, two books on...
