Upcoming Events


  • Current Worship Series: All My Days

    Jesus comes into our ordinary lives: in our homes, our workplaces, our schools, our families. He meets us on the road of life, when we need healing, hope, and new beginnings. In ordinary time, we celebrate the good news that Jesus meets us in our ordinary lives, coming to us, wherever we are, whatever we are experiencing, for now an all our days. Join Grace in worship  as we explore our theme, "All My Days: Meeting Jesus in Ordinary Life."

This newest class will be trained at Emory this summer, and for their inaugural weekend in Atlanta want to be part of the Grace community. We will welcome them in worship, celebrate their ministries, and pray for them as they commit to their time of service. Come for worship, invite others, and stay for a reception following to talk individually with the fellows about their lives and where they are called to go.

  • Breaking Bread Together: Interfaith Meal and Conversation

    Wednesday July 27th , 6pm, Grace Cafe

    In the spring, many people from Grace gathered for a study on Islam, entitled "Loving our Muslim Neighbor". Our learning together inspired us to form relationships with Muslims in our community, and so you are invited for an informal meal with Altanta area Muslims. We will eat together, talk, and get to know one another so that love may increase. All are welcome.

    Please RSVP to Candi if you plan to come: office@graceonponce.org
