Grace Chicago lives into the metaphor of the church as the family of God. We love caring for one another, rejoicing when there is cause to rejoice, mourning when there is reason to mourn. And always extending the table to include more people.
Neighborhood Community Groups
The best way to plug into the community at Grace is through one of our neighborhood groups. These community groups meet throughout the year to eat together, support one another, and grow. During the summer, the groups try to meet at fun outdoor spots in Chicago.
- Lincoln Park: Wednesdays at 7:45pm
- Lincoln Square: Wednesdays at 7:30pm
- Edgewater: Tuesdays at 7:00pm
- Lakeview: Mondays at 7:00pm
For more information or to sign up for a community group, email email@example.com.
Support and Social Groups
Grace has a number of groups that gather based on common interests. This includes groups for families, grief and loss, monthly men's and women's gatherings and more.
We exist as a church for the well-being of Chicago and for the well-being of one another. It takes everyone chipping in with their gifts to make Grace what it is.
- Breakthrough Urban Ministries | Breakthrough is a social justice organization committed to East Garfield Park.
