Serving at Grace

It is our response to God's grace that we follow the example of Christ and His commands. In John, Jesus tells His disciples, "This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you" (v. 12, NIV). Love and service occurs both inside and outside the church. In the church, we can serve and bless one another in many ways, like leading a bible study, teaching children, joining in fellowship activities, bringing food to a potluck, or serving in worship. Outside the church, God calls us to compassion and love for our neighbor. At Grace, we value partnering with other churches to find ways of serving our community by meeting the specific needs right outside our door.

Mission Statement: We are called to Welcome Everyone to Walk the Way of GRACE, and walk in that way in our individual lives, in our shared life in our various communities, in our common life with our neighbors, and even to the world at large as God sends us. The Way of Grace is to: GROW with Jesus, REJOICE in God, ANSWER with hope, CARE for the neighbor, and EMBRACE community.

Vision Statement: God has a plan FOR OUR LIVES, and so we teach how to walk in the path of Jesus Christ; FOR OUR NEIGHBORHOODS, and so we work to build healthy and strong communities; FOR OUR CITY, and so we share life with our neighbors in Walltown, Trinity Park, Duke, and the Triangle; and FOR OUR WORLD, and so we go with Good News.

Core Values: Because God loves us first, we value worship rooted in Scripture and Sacraments, service to all people, and being a welcoming community that loves and forgives one another.
