Ways to Connect

Community develops as relationships are formed, and relationships form as women connect with one another. Below are opportunities for women at Grace Bible Church to come together and connect with one another.

Connection Dinners: Women’s Connection Dinners are just another way to meet other women at GBC. The purpose of these dinners is to bring together GBC women for an evening of food and conversation. Hopefully, you’ll leave with at least one new connection from the evening that you look forward to seeing again.

If you’re interested, the first step is simply signing up using the link below. After enough names are gathered, our Connection Dinner Coordinator (Grace Owens) will connect names with a hostess.

These dinners are not planned with a specific frequency or on a particular night, rather they will happen when the hostesses have availability in their calendar and when we have enough women who have signed-up to make it happen. Once a dinner is in the works, Grace will reach out to you with an invitation. If you can’t make it due to scheduling, just let your hostess and Grace know and you will be kept on the list for a future connection dinner.

To sign up, please use the following link:

Co-ed Fall Softball Team: If you love (or even just like!) softball, here's another way to meet some other GBC people. There's a GBC co-ed team that will be playing on Friday nights at Memorial Park this fall from September 8th - October 27th.
Cost is $25 a person; Brent Daugherty from GBC is heading up the team.

If you want to sign up, follow the link below to submit a $25 payment. Once the team comes together, you’ll hear from Brent with more details.
