Local Outreach

The Word of God says in Matthew 28:18 through 20,

“And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.”

We, at Grace Baptist Church, believe that this is our local responsibility as well as our foreign privilege.  Our local outreach has several phases:

  • Youth Outreach – Takes place every first Sunday of the month following the morning service. There is a lunch, and then the students go door-to-door knocking to speak to individuals about the Lord Jesus Christ.
  • Bus Outreach – Takes place every Saturday @ 10:00 AM in the Harvester’s class room. There is a bus breakfast at 9:00 AM every FIRST Saturday of the month.
  • REACH Night – Takes place Monday evenings at 6:30 PM.  From 6:30 – 7 PM there is a church-wide prayer meeting.  From 7 to 7:30 PM there is a discipleship time.  A schedule can be obtained by contacting our office @ (513) 423-4658 and asking about the REACH Ministry.
