It is not required for salvation but is an act of obedience and a public sign of what Christ has done inwardly in your life. An orientation class is required for all baptism candidates and these are held 2 weeks before the actual baptism on Sunday mornings. Adult and children's orientation class are held separately on the same day. The children's class is taught by Pastor Danielle Christy at 9:15am, the same day but different time as the adult class (11am) which is taught by elder Tim Schwiebert. Children must be at least 8 years old to be water baptized. Email betsy@gracecovenant.org with any questions or concerns.

Co-Ed Study: Don't Waste Your Life (GCC)

When: Wednesday, 7:00 PM    Where: Grace Covenant Church 17301 Statesville Road Cornelius, NC 28031

Don't Waste Your Life
Co-Ed Adult Bible Study in Rm 220
Wednesdays @ 7:00-8:15 PM
January 18 - February 22
Taught by Elder Dean Burrow
No preregistration - just come!

In the deepest space of our soul, there's a longing for our lives to matter. No one ever said, "Let me live a wasted life," and rightfully so. God created us to live a life of purpose and meaning in every stage of our life. But, success is about the greatness of God, not the significance of man. People who make a durable difference in the world are not people who have mastered many things, but who have been mastered by one great thing…a passion for the supremacy of God in all things; that their joy would abound as He is glorified in everything. Join us as we study the foundational truth that all our life pursuits must be built upon…the truth that God is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in Him. This study, facilitated by Dean Burrow, is based on Don't Waste Your Life, by John Piper. For more information, please email groups@gracecovenant.org

Grace Women: Ignite Your Passion for God (GCC)2023

When: Monday, 10:00 AM

Facilitated by Shannon Lee What does it take to fuel a faith that burns bright, no matter what? At different times in our spiritual journey, we may discover that we've somehow developed apathy toward the things of God. Instead of being fueled by spiritual passion, our faith seems to be running on autopilot--or maybe sputtering to a halt as we seek excuses to avoid spiritual engagement. Through this six-week study, your eyes will be opened to the distractions that can undermine your interest in the things of God, and you'll discover practical steps you can take to ignite a fire that will propel you toward a deeper, more meaningful faith.

Grace Women: Names of God (GCC) 2023

When: Wednesday, 7:00 PM

Facilitated by Betsy Dobrotka Today's culture and others' views, even those of other Christians, can present a distorted view of God. Some suggest God exudes qualities He does not possess such as being unloving or apathetic toward His creation. In a world where we find people creating God in their own image, studying God's names can remind us that we are created in His. In fact, one of the best ways to know God's true character and grow closer to Him is to study His names.

Would you love to be able to share your faith with your family and friends over the holidays? All of us want to be more confident in this area, however we are unsure of how to do this, and feel ill equipped in our ever-shifting culture.

When Jesus shared important messages, He used parables which are stories with a purpose. During these sessions you will become an equipped storyteller. Whether you realize it or not, you have a story that intersects with Jesus' story. During the holidays there will be doors of opportunity open to share your faith like no other time of the year. Come and get prepared on how to tell His story and Your story comfortably and with confidence. The week of Thanksgiving (Nov. 27) we will not meet, but our time away will be bit of a practicum.

The secret to your success is found in your daily routines. It is discipline not desire that determines your destiny. A Spiritual Growth Plan is simply a tool to aid in pursuit of God and your personal growth and development. The reality is that we seldom live up to our God-given potential, simply because we are not intentional in the process. The Spiritual Growth Plan describes what we are going to do and is a tool to hold us accountable in the process. Start the beginning of 2023 with God-given goals and plans, and be encouraged as Pastor Farrell shows how you can reach them. For more information please email betsy@gracecovenant.org
