Care Ministries

The primary source of care and support for those who regularly attend Grace is our Community Groups.  But we also offer the help that’s listed below.  For most of these cases, the first contact will be the church office, which can be reached at 757-496-5700 or info@gracebible.church.

Baptism

Have you been baptized?  If not, contact the church office.

Baptism is an act of obedience that every Christian should take seriously, and a powerful means of grace in our lives.  We would love to coach you to understand and experience the full potential of this great sacrament.  Children, students and adults will each meet with the leaders in their respective ministries. 

 

Compassion Team

Are you sick?  Contact the church office.

Want to request a hospital visit?  Fill out this visitation request form if the request is for you or an immediate family member only.

The key support for you during your illness is designed to come from your Community Group. However, if a Grace member is experiencing a hospital stay, chronic illness or a major life change the Compassion Team would love to assist.
