gracespring University / Classes

Fall 2018

The goal of gracespring University (gsU) is to equip you in a specific area of your life to be a more effective disciple of Christ. Classes are offered to anyone in high school or above, range from 4-14 weeks (up to a semester long), are taught by fellow gracespringers and meet on gracespring’s campus. Come and gather to get to know other gracespringers and be equipped in a gsU class, then scatter, taking God’s message to the World! Seminars are one day events.


3-Week Class

If you are new to the gracespring community or have been coming for years but have never attended EXPLORE gracespring, now is the time to sign up! EXPLORE gracespring is offered THREE consecutive Sundays, a few times a year. You will hear from Pastor Bryan about the vision and values of gracespring, have an opportunity to meet the pastors and learn more about the various ministries. You will be invited to take a “back stage” tour of the church, discover how your personality has uniquely gifted you to serve, eat great food and laugh out loud with other new “gracespringers”.
