Faith Connections Welcome Events
Greetings from your Faith Formation Committee
Raising a child of any age takes a village of committed individuals who love and support those who are starting out or continuing on this journey called life. Grace United can be that village serving those in our community, both within and outside our walls in keeping with our Core Values and using Principles. However, the Faith Formation and Development team cannot do this alone without your help.
Your committee is embarking on this journey with you as we explore new ways of reaching out to each other and those we do not know. This means not only looking at the younger generation, but also exploring opportunities that will facilitate learning and growth within our church committees and the wider congregation.
We encourage you to invite your grown children and families to come and share their thoughts and challenges about life and faith issues in a secular world. Also, if you have friends who would be interested in joining us, please extend a warm invitation to attend one of the following available times. We want to listen, learn and develop a path forward together.
Our first request is to invite you to attend our “Faith Connections Welcome Event”

- Discuss other ways that the committee can nurture, educate, and support faith development within the church and facilitate intergenerational leadership opportunities.
- Answer the call to share your time, talent, and passion with the team to create faith activities and opportunities that will support new beginnings.
