The Participation ministry cluster focuses on ways to welcome new members to the Grace Community and encourages involvement in membership, evangelism, and parish life. How is the Spirit of Christ encouraging us to share our gifts and strengths with those around us? When folks explore the community, we welcome them into this space of worship, spiritual growth and prayer. And, for those who have been here for a while (sometimes decades!), we continue to find ways to strengthen our connection to one another. Participation also includes an element of Evangelism, because we realize that we have been given a mandate to share the Gospel in the world, by sharing our gifts and strengths.
