Grace Church exists to make disciples and plant churches by proclaiming and displaying the grace of God to sinners and sufferers. As a church we are a family of families reaching families in Benbrook. Our family ministry permeates all that we do.
Grace Kids is a ministry to the family partnering with parents in the journey of our children’s discipleship. We do this by equipping our parents in gospel-centered parenting, incorporating family worship into our Community Group gatherings, and providing age-appropriate, Jesus-centered classrooms at our Sunday gatherings. The mission of Grace Kids is to see children, also sinners and sufferers, transformed by the grace of God into disciples who treasure Jesus, have deep friendships, and boldly evangelize.
Our Parents: Our parents are equipped through teaching, modeling, and resourcing to shepherd their children’s hearts in everyday life—time, moments, and milestones.
Our Groups: Our groups living as families and loving one another’s children through teaching, helping, and encouraging.
Our Sundays: Our Sunday classrooms for ages 6 months–5th grade supplementing our families by providing an age-appropriate context for our children to hear the Word, sing the Word, and pray the Word.
