A Community Called Grace

CCG Gathers

A Community Called Grace is hosting new monthly spirituality and faith gatherings! 

3rd Sunday of the Month @ 5pm
Upcoming: January 15
Headwaters School of Music & Arts

Each gathering will look a little bit different - we'll spend an hour or so together exploring bible and book studies, worship, spiritual practices, art, meditation and prayer. Occasionally we'll invite folks to teach us about what they know best. Sometimes we'll just drink good coffee and talk. 

We know that community is what we're seeking and that's what we want to build.

Come exactly as you are. Truly. You belong!

A Community Called Grace

Hey YOU!
Come hang out.

A Community Called Grace is a new faith community for young(ish) adults in the Bemidji area. We're starting with a Pub Theology group and a Book Study in Fall 2021. We'll expand from there - hopefully into deeper conversations, more authentic relationships and connection to the One who created us and calls us beloved. 

OUR WELCOME STATEMENT:
A Community Called Grace commits to live as a community of people seeking reconciliation and wholeness in our life together and in our outreach to the world. We commit to the work of anti-racism, liberation, social and environmental justice for all of God's beloveds. 

We affirm the sacredness of people of all sexual orientations, gender identities, and gender expressions. We affirm the sacredness of all those who have experienced exclusion because of race, ability, age, or culture. We affirm the sacredness of those who wrestle with addiction, physical or mental health, imprisonment, socio-economic circumstances, or anything that too often divides us. 

You are absolutely invited to join us in this lifelong journey. We welcome all who are seeking God’s love and grace. We need each other and our sincere hope is by being in community together we will know the kin-dom of God has come near. 

  • We're looking for folks to join our dreaming and planning team... with an invitation specifically extended to folks who identify as: Gen Z/Millennial - LGBTQIA2S+ - BIPOC - or as someone who hasn't found a place to fit in at a traditional Lutheran church... let's build something new.
