Adult Ministries

The Adult Ministries at Grace Baptist Church include individual age and stage Sunday school classes and fellowship opportunities. The purpose of the adult ministries is to teach adults to grow together in God’s Word, to hold fellowships that enhance friendship and unity, to encourage personal devotions, and to reach others with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

GBCU

GBCU, the college and career ministry of Grace Baptist Church, is made up of singles ranging in age from 18 through their late 20’s.  This is the decade of life when young adults make decisions that determine the direction their lives will take.  GBCU exists to teach young adults how to make these choices based on the principles of the Word of God.  Through twice weekly time together, scheduled activities, and monthly outreach, we give our members opportunities for fellowship and service to God.  We meet upstairs above the main lobby in the GBCU Cafe and Classroom Sunday mornings at 10 AM and Wednesday evenings at 7 PM for a more casual time of Bible study and refreshments.  For more information contact Tony Trammell at tram.tony@icloud.com.

The Cleavers

The Cleavers class is a group of couples who are newly married with young families (20’s and 30’s). Every couple will face challenges, but with the help of God we can live in peace and harmony. We believe that God’s Word holds the key to producing a healthy marriage, gives us the tools needed for raising children, and equips us for sharing the Gospel of Christ with those who have not heard. Come join us on Sunday morning in Room 105 as we study God’s word and grow in our spiritual walk with Christ.

Joyful Women

A class designed for ladies of all ages.

The Family Builders

A class formed to address the issues and needs of growing families. The class is designed to help dads and moms establish a firm spiritual foundation for their families honoring our LORD and SAVIOUR JESUS CHRIST as the True Head of every Christian home. Besides Sunday school classes, we hold fellowships and activities that enhance spiritual growth, friendship and unity among young families in our church.

The Harvesters

This wonderful blend of married couples {ages somewhere between 40-55 years] comes with a variety of personalities, talents, and interests.  However, their prayer goal and common bond are to become more like Christ every day. As they claim the Holy Spirit’s power and leadership, and constantly looking for those divine appointments, they want to be bold witnesses sharing the gospel story and God’s simple plan of salvation.  Our prayerful desire is that others will come to know and accept Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior.    

The Lamplighters

This class delivers purposeful lessons geared to challenge the Bible student to know God’s Word, love, and plan in the lives of His saints and to share it with the lost world.  The class fellowship, mainly over the age of 50, is warm, friendly and welcoming, and offers many opportunities to plug into Grace’s Ministries.

Whosoever Will

This adult Sunday School class was formed to study the Word of God without restrictions of age, gender, marital status or any other reason.  This class was aptly named ” WHOSOEVER WILL ” in order to make all students feel welcome.  This class is taught by Gordon and Margaret Moore.

The Grace Bible Class

A Class for all ages of Adults. It is taught by Pastor Fernandez. Attend this Class and receive a blessing.

The Deaf Ministry

A class currently led by Todd Green and is designed for those who communicate in American Sign Language or would like to do so.

Seasoned Saints

Previously known as the Jolly 60’s, the doors have been “opened wider” so that a designated age does not cause hesitation for anyone who would like to join the “family”.  These folks have a wealth of experience to share, spiritual maturity to invest, and a zest for enjoying the love of Jesus Christ with one another.  There is a monthly meeting in the Middletown Christian Schools Cafetorium on the third Saturday from 10:00 am-Noon.  A variety of topics are covered, prayer requests are shared, music is enjoyed, and God’s Word is preached; all of this crowned with a delicious lunch.  In addition, two annual, extended trips are taken [May and October] to such places as Branson, MO, Wisconsin Dells, Mackinac Island, MI, Martha’s Vineyard, Maine and Washington, D.C.  If you have a desire to make new friends, learn more about the Lord, and you have at least a half a century behind you, the door is “open wide”.                                             

Master’s Daughters

This loving and caring group of women know what it is like to have parted with a spouse.  More often than not, it has been after many years of having “become one”, striving to be a faithful “help-mate”, bound in love and the Lord.  As they have grown in God’s grace, comfort, and presence, they are the first to reach out to others in their time of need.  A monthly meeting is held in the Silent Classroom on the second Saturday at 10:30 am.  Special discussions, prayer, and devotion are always followed with lunch that is provided by the ladies of Grace as they enjoy a time of fellowship together.

Contenders 

This courageous band of men is “…contending for the faith” [Jude 3] as they surround each other, having experienced heartache through the passing of their wives, fellowshipping together, and fixing their eyes on the Lord.  It is there that they get the strength to press on and contend for that which is right and true until the Lord returns.  These men of valor meet monthly at designated places to share “war stories”, God’s provision, good food, and discuss special events that are planned at a variety of times and locations.

RENEW Ladies Ministry

Our ladies ministry consist of Bible studies and activities offered at different times through the year. Childcare is provided and the desire is to allow young moms, working ladies, and busy ladies to be refreshed with God’s Word and fellowship.

Men’s Prayer Breakfast

All the men of the church are invited to participate at 7:30 a.m. on the third Saturday of each month. The time consists of a short devotional, sharing of requests, and a season of prayer.  Following the prayer time, we dismiss to local restaurants for breakfast and fellowship.(Luke 18:1)

Discipleship

Christ command that we are to teach and train followers.  Men or women who wish one on one help with their Christian lives are assigned a lay leader or staff member to meet on a regular basis and study the Word of God together.  Lessons are completed and relationships are established to lead believers to be more like Christ.
