Become a Supporting Partner

Thank you for considering supporting our growing ministry by becoming a supporting partner!

Through the years, people across the country have encouraged and assisted the inclusive ministry of Grace Baptist Church . We have provided inspiration and been a model to fellow churches. We’ve been a sanctuary for individuals – lay and clergy – who have crossed paths in this place and then been called elsewhere. We’ve been, especially through God’s use of the internet, a growing witness to individuals seeking fellowship and support who will never be able to worship with us. In short, we are a local church with a growing sense of community.

In 2004, we redeveloped a category of partnership with the Grace community called “Supporting Partner” to adequately capture this sense of connections – old and new – beyond our worshipping community. This provides a formal way for individuals to be in long-distance partnership with us in a variety of ways. As we begin 2014, we anticipate blessings in these aspects of Supporting Partnerships :

Supporting Partners receive via email:

  • Our weekly bulletin and announcements;
  • Our monthly newsletter, Grace Notes;
  • A semiannual (Christmas and Pentecost) update letter/financial appeal;
  • Encouragement to share requests for prayer (we’ll share them within worship and /or our monthly Prayer Circle)

Supporting Partners contribute to our ministry by:

  • Praying faithfully for our events and people;
  • Giving financial gifts as led;
  • Additional strategies as led by our creative God
