MoMENtum is our men's ministry which meets for special events, weekly small groups, and serves the local and global communities together.
Our goal is to provide safe, authentic and transparent environments where we can point each other to God, encourage one another, building relationships and community with other guys, resulting in doing life together. Ultimately? Being changed, becoming more like Jesus, growing in and living a life on purpose, and being the men - the husbands, dads, employers, employees, coaches, neighbors, etc. - that God's created us to be!
As a ministry of Grace Community Church, our mission is to reach men with the good news of Jesus Christ and teach them to become fully devoted followers of Him. Our primary focus is to provide various and intentional on ramps where guys can put their toe in the water and check things out. We pray God will meet them where they are and lead them to a passionate pursuit of Jesus. Here are the types of environments we offer:
MoMENtum Connections typically happen quarterly! Easily stated, these are our “Top of the Funnel” events. Guys of all ages connect for laughs, lots of coffee, hearing from a speaker sharing from God’s Word in a relevant and practical way and at times followed by discussion, all with the goal of building authentic, transparent relationships.
Occasionally guys initiate decentralized activities to get away from the grind and simply have some fun. Some of these activities have included our MoMENtum at PNC Park/Pirates game or Sporting Clay Shooting. We also have seasonal, weekly activities such as basketball, softball, and golf.
MoMENtum Weekend Getaway
Our MoMENtum Weekend Getaway has quickly become one of our “calendar have-to’s!” Interestingly, God used this time away during our first adventure to Wisp Resort in Maryland some years ago as the catalyst for His MoMENtum ministry here at Grace to be born! Since then, from guys meeting new guys to reconnecting with others, to men’s small groups getting away from their weekly meeting times and joining together in the mountains, for a special time to decompress and engage relationally, spiritually, and enjoy the outdoors, this special weekend of speaker-led sessions, breakout discussions, and free time full of various activities has proven to be a non-negotiable for anyone who has experienced it, and we always find ways to help those who want to participate to do so. Just ask the wife, fiancé, girlfriend, family member or friend of anyone who’s attended any of our Weekend Getaway locations! Countless guys say this is a highlight and critically important time away to rest, draw closer to God, and to other Jesus-focused men.
We provide many opportunities to serve together which could include helping our widows, global outreach partners, local outreach projects including and not limited to our bi-annual Marshall Road Cleanup or serving with one of our local outreach partners such as Light of Life Rescue Mission, Lighthouse Food Bank, CHOICES Pregnancy Services, and Refuge for Women Emergency Housing for Sex Trafficking victims. Moreover, we have a blast owning our First Impressions team as greeters, cafe, parking, ushers, and more for worship services during a weekend or two each year, and even our men’s small groups mobilizing for smaller one-time projects we learn about, or they simply take on themselves. Bottom line, MoMENtum SERVES!
