Meetings are just one hour long and are held in the Seekers classroom.

  • 4k-2nd grade led by Allison Outlaw in the 4th grade classroom
  • Children’s guitar classes led by David Lusk & Beverly Blevins

Thurmond Lake Recreational Facility

Recreation and play forms an important part of ministering to the total person. The very word itself means to “RE-CREATE” that with which God has blessed us. Keeping that in mind, Grace Church has twenty-one acres of land on Thurmond Lake available for our members’ use. The facilities include a lodge with kitchen, a bathhouse, areas for tent camping, a swimming area with beach, picnic areas, and a boat landing. For a nominal fee, keys are available from the church office. Please call the church office for more information.

Wild Game Dinner and Silent Auction

This fundraiser benefits the Leisure Ministries of Grace and occurs in February each year. Join us for a variety of tasty and unusual wild game dishes, silent auction, and foot stomping blue grass music by Doug and the Henrys.
