Get Connected with a Faith community

It is so important to be connected with others before a crisis hits. Pastor Zeke is the past president of the Interfaith Community Against Domestic Violence. He writes, "When our hearts were broken by the tragic deaths of three children who were very dear to us, like godchildren, we (along with the children's mother) were fortunate to be able to lean into the support and comfort of our church community. While I handled the media attention, my wife walked alongside the grieving mom for months, while others in our community mowed her grass, sent meals, and prayed daily. It is hard for me to overstate the importance of being connected in community when a crisis strikes."

If you are not already connected with a church community, consider connecting this week. Here at Greater Grace Community Church, we want you to experience the love of God through our church family.
