EMMAUS MINISTRY TRAINING
We can’t know God without knowing the Bible. At Grace, we’ve developed Emmaus Ministry Training to help you do just that. These courses are for anyone who wants to go deeper in knowing more about God and how His Word transforms every part of our lives.
As Jesus and his disciples were walking the road to Emmaus, “beginning with Moses and all the Prophets, He explained to them what was said in all the Scriptures concerning Himself” (Luke 24:27). We want to open the Bible to you as Jesus did for the disciples, whether your ministry is with your family, at work, in the community, or around the world.
Below are the upcoming classes that are being offered at Grace Church. You can click on a class and register online.
This short-term group is designed to help you get to know what Grace Church is all about. Through this 7-week experience, you’ll be able to connect with others while learning what it means to be part of the Grace community.
Discover the heartbeat of Grace Church as you learn about what it means to Know It, Live It, and Give It Away. Discovery Groups paint a picture of life and involvement at Grace and guide you into your next steps.

Pick a task, any task: some people are going to be really good at it, and others, well not so good. Have you ever wondered why? Beyond the mantra that “practice makes perfect,” there is a God-given reason for your strengths and weaknesses. This class will help you discover how God has wired and “shaped” you by exploring Scripture and the different things that make you “you.” We will help you discover not only how God has made you unique, but also how your uniqueness fits in the bigger picture of what God is doing. You will gain both a fresh perspective on how God can use your specific talents and passions, and you will also be connected with ministries and opportunities that align with those talents and passions. Join us as we learn how we all fit into the story of God!
