Live Life Together

Relationships matter to God. We’ve been created to be in a relationship with him and each other. Lets start a journey of understanding why we don’t have to face life on our own.

Grace’s Middle School Pastor, Nathan Hartley, grew up at Grace and felt called into ministry when he was in middle school himself. He has a passion for seeing young people realize the transforming good news of Jesus, and loves to help them learn how to live for Him. His wife Heather loves Grace students too!

San Francisco Mission Trip // October 1-6

San Francisco draws visitors and residents from all over the world to take in its beautiful architecture, incredible views, and diverse culture.

Mention "The City by the Bay" and people think of Fisherman’s Wharf, the Haight-Ashbury neighborhood, and the 49ers football team. The romance that draws people to the city can turn into despair and pain for many. The homeless population grows daily, as outrageous housing costs box even middle class families out of the housing market. Thousands of people live a paycheck away from the streets as the elderly, immigrant families, and others strive to survive the economics of a city bent on gentrification and serving the elite few that can afford to live within her borders. Poverty, drugs, underemployment, literacy, AIDS, crime, and violence take a daily toll on the people of San Francisco.

Looking through Jesus’ eyes at the people and issues that make up San Francisco, there is great hope for the future of San Francisco and her people. Jesus is alive and well in the city! Both small and large organizations, church communities, and followers of Christ seek daily to alleviate the suffering and shine God’s light in very dark places. We’ll be working with City Serve Missions for this trip. Check out their website at csm.org for more info about who they are and what the week will look like.
