 Welcome to Grace Communion Orlando

Hello All,

What’s on the horizon? 

When Jesus asked the disciples to come follow him, little did they know how much it would change their world — for good!  In friendship and in close proximity to the Savior, we witness a crew of humble and ordinary citizens become faithful and bold defenders of the gospel. We begin to understand the deep love the Savior must have shown towards his disciples, so that behind every miracle, parable, and triumphant deed is a personal and tangible God who was a teacher, and more importantly a close friend.

The example that the Savior modeled for his followers is one that is vibrant, and we read in Acts 2 how believers grew in number because the faithful shared a life that was deeply interconnected as they devoted to meeting regularly and breaking bread together, praising God and enjoying the favor of their communities.

This September we launch LIFE-Groups, a ministry tool that will allow us to disciple in our communities. The primary purpose of LIFE-Groups is to give people a safe place to connect, build a relationship and grow together spiritually. It’s an exciting direction for us that will require some training, but we believe that in time every member of our congregation can be a part of one and perhaps even lead one in their neighborhood.

Our vision is to become a thriving church community filled with LIFE-groups that love to do life together, with the hope of reaching every person in every season of life.  Our mission is to help people know God, find freedom, discover purpose, and make a difference.

I hope you will join us on this exciting new directive for our church family.

Psalm 63:3-4 (NIV)

Because your love is better than life,
    my lips will glorify you.
I will praise you as long as I live,
    and in your name I will lift up my hands.

Love in Christ,

Pastor Steve

1 CORINTHIANS 6:19 Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; 20 you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies.

“The true posture of our heart is not revealed by how passionately we sing or how much we sacrifice on Sunday, but by how we behave toward our neighbor on Monday.” – Skye Jethani
