Grace Groups

Come. Connect. Serve.

Grace Groups (GG) are about doing life together, about life-on-life living. Grace Groups are about drinking coffee and talking with a friend. It’s about looking at how the Bible applies to work, family, recreation, and ultimately every area of our lives...it’s about getting to know a group of people much like yourself who deal with real life issues, and are willing to come beside you to pray and encourage.

Visit our 19 Sunday morning Grace Groups, where we're sure you can find a class that will provide a safe place for you to meet new friends and pursue God. Other Grace Groups meet off-campus throughout the week. 

New? Another great place to begin is Starting Point, which meets seasonally for 8 weeks for those curious about God, new to faith, or coming back to church.  No questions are off-limits.  Join us! 

A good way to decide which Grace Group to join is to give one a try.  For questions, contact the names below or Grace Group Pastor, Dan Jackson, 419.289.8334 ext. 5233  djackson@ashlandgrace.org
