Today is a daily devotional that helps God's people refresh, refocus,
and renew their faith.

To Our Members and Friends of Grace Community CRC:

From the outset of our suspending meetings and in-person worship due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our aim as a church has been to ensure the safety of our congregation and to abide by local, state, and federal guidelines. In the interest of these, Grace Community CRC will continue to suspend in-person worship and meetings until such time as we are assured by all three levels of governance that it is safe for us to resume in-person worship. We pray that day will come soon, and rest assured we are taking every precaution and preventative measure in preparation for that day, but for now we will remain physically apart.

Thank you for your continued prayers and support in these difficult times.

                   --The Executive Team of Grace Community Church

To get an audio CD contact the Grace Church office by calling 708-636-2848 and leave a voicemail message. 

Even though we aren’t meeting for activities and worship services, church expenses continue, so we ask you to prayerfully consider giving as best you can for our shared ministries, either through online giving on this website or by mailing your gifts to the church.

These are unprecedented times.  We trust that God is with us and that, by his Spirit, Jesus never leaves us nor forsakes us.  But our normal life has been deeply disrupted and we are taking unprecedented precautions. If you have a need at this time, feel free to contact your District Elder or Deacon, or the Church Office. It may be difficult for you to go to the store or you might want someone to check in on you over the phone; as a church we want to lean on each other to help.

God's peace to you in our victorious Lord Jesus.  

Michael Kooy
Pastor

A Message from the Pastor...Rev. Michael Kooy

"We'd like to welcome you at Grace Community Church!  At Grace Community, we strive to create places of caring community where people can seek God together and be transformed into disciples who make an impact in the world.  I pray that you will find a place at Grace that will support you as you search for God's guidance for your life."                                                          
 

                 

 Matt Mulder has joined us to work with us as Pastor of Preaching and Connections.
We pray for God’s blessing on us and Pastor Matt as we work together in ministry.

"In this new reality, we pray that God will keep you safe, even as you act wisely to safeguard yourselves and your loved ones.
As our Lord Jesus said,
"In this world
you will have trouble.
But take heart!
I have overcome the world!
--John 16:33 NIV
