God has gifted many men and women to produce resources that point us to the ultimate source of hope and comfort in the midst of uncertainty - God and His Word. The following are resources that we recommend to supplement your regular intake of the Word of God.
For archived weekly devotionals, SPA women's studies, Iron Men studies, and other helpful videos from our pastors please visit our YouTube playlist page where each of these resources are grouped by subject.

Weekly Children's Bible Lessons - While our kids cannot gather weekly as they usually do, we would like to offer resources for them and their families to use. Grace Community Church has provided a once-a-week Bible lesson video and daily lessons to go along with the video.

This livestream event will explore this truth and our God-given calling to serve well in our families, vocations, churches, and communities. These are truly unprecedented days in which we are living. As Christians, we need God’s Word to give us strength, for in the days to come the church will have even greater opportunities to proclaim the holiness of God in all its fullness.
