Our Lord said just before He ascended back to heaven, Go and make disciples. We believe that God equips, gifts, and provides for each local church so that they may be obedient to this command of going and making more disciples. Specfically, as it sinks into our hearts the magnitude of the grace that God has poured out upon us through Jesus, we want to go and make more worshipers who also praise God's amazing grace. Grace Community Presbyterian is actively involved in coming alongside Toombs County's awesome community ministries, including the Mercy Ministries, Rachel's House Crisis Pregnancy Center, and Paul Anderson Youth Home through our financial and prayer support, as well as through giving of our time to volunteer. We also regularly open our facility to host events like the Rachel's House Annual Meeting and Mercy's Red Cross Blood Drive. Additionally, God has seen fit to provide Grace Community a church facility in the middle of a beautiful Lyons neighborhood, and we are in the process of asking ourselves how can we use this strategic location to minister in Word and deed to the people of the neighborhood surrounding our church.
We are grateful that we have a Missions Committee composed of enthusiastic volunteers who meet regularly to pray for our efforts at mission and outreach, and who brainstorm and plan what our efforts will look like in action! Most recently, our Missions Committe led Grace Community in participating in the Angel Tree Ministy as we celebrated Christmas 2017. What a joy to host a fellowship hall full of children with whom we could enjoy dinner and then bless with Christmas gifts.
From walking through the neighborhood around our church interceding for it in prayer to inviting the community to an Easter sunrise worship service to participating in various community events; we long to tell many people about the Gospel that we ourselves cherish so much. God has grealty blessed Grace Community Presbyterian Church that we might in turn be a blessing to Vidalia, Lyons, and as we grow increasingly established...to the ends of the earth!
