In the last 2 years Grace Community Church has exploded, going from 200 to 1000 people! This currently ranks us as one of the fastest growing churches in America! We believe our growth is attributed to the fact that God is doing something very special here at Grace.

We passionately believe God has called GCC to continue to spread his message of love, healing and hope throughout the Lakewood Ranch, Sarasota & Bradenton area – and even beyond!

This brochure serves to both inform you of our vision as well as ask you to prayerfully consider partnering with us! We hope you agree that now is the time to move forward in this venture. With your help, together we can transform this city with the life changing power and love of God!
