Online Bible Study

As part of the church, we are excited to share with you a free gift of access to RightNow Media!  This extensive video library tool is known as the ‘Christian Netflix’ and has a huge library of faith-based videos that you can access whenever and wherever you want – on your phone, tablet, computer or at home on your TV.

One of the primary focuses in all that we do is to be disciple-making disciples!  We believe that this is a tool that will equip you to live out your faith at home, at work, and in your neighborhood.  RightNow Media has videos for everyone – kids, youth, parents, married couples, college students, single adults, working professionals – all aimed at helping you grow in your discipleship journey.

Sign in to your Right Now Media account to explore lessons, devotions and other educational platforms. Don’t have an account?  Email the Tammy Houck (tammyhouck@gracehummelstown.org) to request an invitation to this wonderful resource.

Grace's Book Nook

Check out Grace’s library, filled with both small group studies and personal selections for the avid reader.  The Book Nook is located in Room #106 next to the church office.  Sign out all books and return them at your leisure.  We are happy to be able to share these resources.

Small Groups

Women's Small Groups

WINGS – Women In Growth Spiritually.

A gathering opportunity for women who have or are currently experiencing a loss,
a broken relationship, a challenging time, or separation/divorce. The purpose of the group is to
provide a place to share your brokenness (and healing!) in a safe space with other women while learning ways to find peace and joy again.

WINGS will meet on Wednesday evenings from 6:30 pm – 8 pm as we explore passages from the Bible, books, music and poetry.  Women of all ages are encouraged to join us in the Fireside Room! 

  
“He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.” Psalm 147:3

Women at the Well

This group meets weekly on Wednesday mornings from 9:30 am– 11 am

Purposeful Stretching

This is an opportunity for participants to improve their balance, stretch their bodies, reflect on scripture, share any prayer concerns, meditate, and relax. Tai Chi, Pilates core work, TheraBands, and body ball release will be used to achieve better balance, core strength and flexibility. The meditation and prayer component help with relaxation and centering.

This group meets weekly for an hour-long class. Just register for class and bring your yoga mat.
All other equipment will be provided for class time use by instructor, Sandy McCann. For more
information check out Sandy’s website at https://purposefulstretching.wixsite.com/.

Prayer Shawl

The Prayer Shawl Ministry

  • The group gathers on the 2nd and 4th Sundays of the month at 2pm in the
    Fireside Room at Grace.
  • The Prayer Shawl Ministry knits and crochets shawls to give to people in need of
    God’s comfort and love. These shawls are stitched with prayers asking for peace,
    comfort, and God’s love for the person that receives it. The prayer shawl group
    will usually meet on the 2nd and 4th Sundays of the month at 2pm in the Fireside
    Room. If your schedule doesn’t permit you to come to every meeting, don’t let
    that stop you from joining the group! You can come when you are available and
    work on shawls in your spare time.
  • The prayer shawl group holds a mini craft sale in November. We create hand-
    made items such as scarves, winter hats, dish cloths, holiday ornaments, and
    much more. All of the monies from this go to the debt reduction of the church.
    Keep this in mind for some of your holiday gift shopping! There will be an
    announcement in the weekly bulletins a few weeks before the sale dates.
  • If you have any questions about the group, what we do, or would
    like to give a shawl to someone that needs one, you can contact
    Karen Svercek at 717-689-6003 or ksvercek207@gmail.com.
