Men's ministry at Grace seeks to provide the men of our church fruitful contexts for spiritual growth and discipleship through the study of God's Word, prayer, and support and accountability.
Some of the ways in which we grow together are as follows:
Axios is 39 week small group discipleship ministry that meets throughout the school year. Groups generally form in the Fall and meet until Summer. Inspired by the Apostle Paul's words in Ephesians, Axios seeks to encourage men to "lead a life worthy of your calling, for you have been called by God". Axios provides biblical studies for men to independently invest in during the week and then gather in small groups each Friday morning to discuss the study and love and encourage one another to be faithful followers of Christ.
If you are interested in joining an Axios group or would like more information please contact Mark Page at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are interested in being a part of a weekly men's discipleship small group, contact Mark Page at email@example.com for more information and to see about opportunities that come available throughout the year.
Our quarterly events give us an opportunity to connect with God and connect with each other. Whether the event is focused on fellowship, service, or evangelism, our goal is to encourage one another in the Lord and spur each other on towards Spirit-led obedience to Christ.
Once a year, the men of Grace take a trip to the Shadow Mountain Resort in Palm Springs for a time of teaching and fellowship. This trip usually takes place every spring. Please contact Dave Gundlach for more information @ firstname.lastname@example.org.
Ushers at Grace stand at the door and greet attendees as they enter the sanctuary, and help people find seats. Men who would be interested in ushering once every 15 weeks please email Howard at email@example.com.

We have one or two events throughout the year designed to encourage our parents and provide resources for families.
Axios, a new 30 week men's discipleship study is taking place on Fridays at 7am in the 'Overflow HS" room of the youth building at Grace. The format of the study consists of working through a series of biblically based lessons studied independently during the week with an interactive discussion on Friday mornings. Discussion groups are small and age-specific with the goal of helping one another learn and grow in Christ. Read more...

We all have special women in our lives, wifes, daughters, mothers, etc... and no doubt we think about them all the time. However, they love to know that they are being thought of and the only way to communicate that is to do something thoughtful and out of the ordinary.
So, you are going to bring them flowers out of the blue on July 23rd. This is not connected to any holliday or anything, its just because YOU CARE! (And its a fundraiser to help high schoolers earn money to go to camp).
Order one of three bouquets by noon on Friday the 16th, pay for the flowers online, and then after work (4-6:30pm) pick up your flowers at Grace Fellowship Church on your way home on the 23rd. We'll send you are reminder email a day before to remember to pick them up. Your lady will love it!
Summer is here and we would like to make a point of fellowship and connection with the men in the church. Please join us on Friday July 23 for a summer BBQ to fellowship and hang out. We will meet at the home of Mark Lewis, 2917 Clubhouse Rd in Costa Mesa, around 6:30 pm. This is a casual event and is open to all men of the church.
