Grace Community Church is committed to building spiritually healthy people for life and ministry in the world. We are a disciple-making church with God-centered worship and biblical teaching, mutual encouragement toward spiritual growth, and engagement with the world through evangelism, missions, and service.
The primary message of Grace is that a person becomes and lives rightly related to God by grace through faith in Jesus Christ. Our desire is to embrace this message and present it to Nashville and the world through proclamation and the practice of good deeds.
The ministries of Grace revolve around four key expressions of our faith in Christ. We gather together as the church to worship Christ. We grow in our relationship with Christ and with one another. We give to the growth, health, and ministry of the church. We go into our world with the good news of Christ in our hearts and displayed through our words and actions.
We hope you find what you are looking for on our website, but if you are searching for something we haven’t included, feel free to contact us. We hope to see you in person someday soon.

Three Reasons We Do Missions Month
If we are supposed to live with a mission mindset all the time, why are we emphasizing missions in November? Here are three reasons:
We need to be reminded of what’s important.
Busyness can be detrimental to priorities. The important can be sacrificed for the urgent. We need to schedule time for what’s important. That’s why we stop on the Lord’s Day for corporate worship. That’s why we begin each day with prayer and Scripture reading. A season for emphasizing missions helps keep missions a priority the rest of the year.
We need a vision of what’s coming.
During missions month, we talk about the priorities and plans for the upcoming year. Doing so gets us praying, planning and giving so we will be prepared next year.
We need to articulate our intentions.
We are more likely to do what we verbally commit to do than what we simply think about. We are saying now in November that, by God’s grace, we will pray, give, serve, send, and go in 2015. Now we are committed.
Spend some time this weekend preparing for Sunday by reading the book of Jonah and praying for the mission of Grace Community Church.
