Music has played an important role in Christian worship throughout the ages in all cultures and history. At GGMI, we believe that music is a means of praising God and proclaiming the word, and of expressing prayer and relating the gospel story. Through music, people of God may unite in praise and worship, whether through singing a hymn or listening to an anthem by a choir or other musical offering by an instrumental ensemble.

The GGMI Prayer Ministry exists to pray for your emotional, physical and spiritual needs and provides a range of ways in which requests may be made, either by calling the church office, filling out a prayer request card during worship, or dropping a written request in the box inside the church office. Each prayer request may be designated as open to the congregation, or noted for the pastors/prayer ministry only.

At GGMI we use the word of God as the guide for all life’s situations. The bible is infallible, authoritative, inerrant, and is completely sufficient to deal with every adversity, trial, and temptation.The purpose of the counseling at GGMI is to teach each person how to approach circumstances, relationships, and situations of life from a biblical perspective and to experience victory and contentment in all of life’s trials, testing and problems.


The purpose of this ministry is to reach out to GGMI singles and couples by providing biblical teaching, opportunities for Christian service, fellowship and recreation. This enables a deeper commitment to Christ while building a meaningful relationship in a nurturing environment. The ministry reaches out to singles of all ages. This group is flexible and depends on the needs of the individual.


The Ministry of women at GGMI is designed to meet the needs of women in the church and the community. Women are encouraged through bible studies focusing on their spiritual needs and development. The ministry reaches out to others, share in prayer and caring, encourages, and help others feel connected. Throughout the year, large events are planned around seasonal or ministry themes. All women are welcome and encouraged to participate.


The evangelism ministry exists to encourage and equip believers to share the love of God, model that love, and win people to Christ. To do that, this ministry offers free evangelism training to prepare people to share the gospel. “And he said unto them, go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved: but he that believeth not shall be damned” (Mark 16:15-16). We take Him seriously and that is why at GGMI, our focus has always been sharing His love locally and globally. We minister to the people in the local community and to the people around the world. Through various ministries and outreaches, we are striving to do our part in fulfilling the great commission.


The Ministry to men endeavors to reach the men in our church and our community by facilitating the building of relationships based on common interests. As men spend time with other Christian men doing things that they simply enjoy, they build relationships that foster true accountability to one another. This allows them to encourage and support each other to pursue God’s purpose for their lives and to focus on a variety of Godly values and attributes with the goal of finding ways and opportunities to incorporate them into their lives on a consistent basis.

Karis Kids is a ministry of Grace of God Ministries International. Ministering to children from infants through 6 th grade, Karis Kids provides a safe and nurturing environment in which your child can grow in his or her faith. Children are introduced to Jesus at an early age and are

Children are taught using a curriculum that provides the building blocks for spiritual development at each grade level. Karis Kids meets every Sunday morning, except the last Sunday in the month from 11:30 am to 1:00 pm on the second floor. Jr. High, grades 7 through 8 th grade, also meet at the same time.

“What I ask of the Lord”

This is what I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty of the Lord and to seek him in his temple. Taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the man who takes refuge in him. The Lord is everlasting God, the creator of all the ends of the earth.

I found this community at a time in my life when I was really hurting. I walked in the doors, and felt like I had just come home! I was welcomed with warmth, and encouragement, and friendship.
