Where Can I Serve?

Jesus told us, his disciples, to make disciples of all nations. One of the most important values of this church is our mission to the world. It begins in our own community, and spreads overseas to every nation. Church members are involved in a variety of ministries from things as simple as washing the church vehicles, to preparing the church bulletins.  

God’s Helping Hands Outlet

Grace Bible Church ministers to the spiritual and material needs of our community through God’s Helping Hands Outlet. This ministry primarily provides men’s, women’s and children’s clothing to those in need in our community. The outlet is open to the public every Wednesday and the first Saturday of each month from 10 AM to 3 PM. The primary mission of this ministry is to lead clients to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ through the witness and testimonies, and secondly, by being Christ’s hands and feet in meeting their material needs.  Everything at God’s Helping Hands Outlet is free.
 

Global Missions 

Grace Church actively participates in world-wide, Christ-exalting missionary endeavors through missionaries and agencies/organizations that are in agreement with the doctrinal statement of the church.  Grace Bible Church is thrilled to be part of the spread of God’s kingdom around the world. We are active in sending missionaries and supporting these missionaries with our money and with our prayers.
 

GBC supports 11 active Ministries in the Mission Field as well as Jewel, the Schuylkill County Women’s Pregnancy Center.  Our support starts in our backyard and spans the globe. 

The Missions Committee is Carl Teter (chair), Dave and Kathy Gallo; Dave and Jeanne Koch; & Maureen Schoener.

Worship Team
 
God-honoring worship is something we strive for. Many church members get involved in our music ministry. Some play their instruments. Some are vocalists. These volunteers are an important part of the ministry of our church, using their talents and gifts to glorify God.  

Greeters

The Greeters at our church fills a very important role. They are involved in directing attendees to their seats, guiding traffic, helping visitors, answering questions, and providing direction. The Greeters are a servant-hearted group of men and women whose ministry is integral to church life.

Audio-Visual Team

Using the latest technology to share the message with those outside of the church.

Ministry of Helps

This important Ministry Team assists the Pastor by working with the Deacons in ministering to the needs of the overall congregation – specifically to women, children, elderly, and those in distress – with loving kindness and sympathy. These are also responsible for the preparation and setting up of Communion on the first Sunday of each month and help prepare female baptismal candidates for baptism.
