Pastor Chris
Welcome to J, Amanda, Karaline, and Griffin Lloyd! The Community of Grace family is very excited to have J join us as our youth pastor.

Spotlight
MOPS/MOMSnext at COG wants to make sure no mom is left behind. This group of women is dedicated to helping each other in the day to day needs of life as well as deepening their relationship with Jesus Christ.

The MOPS/MOMSnext group hosts roughly 40 moms and 60 kiddos during their school year. They also have special meetings during the summer, such as park play dates on Tuesdays. If you would like more information about MOPs at COG and upcoming events, go to their FB page or website . Thank you Stacey Dalton for directing this group.
The Staff's Choice
The COG staff is currently reading How to Worship Jesus Christ by Joseph S. Carroll. This short read is a great reminder of what worship looks like according to the Bible. If you decide to read this one, we'd love to talk with you on your thoughts.
