Grace Fellowship Church:

Grace Fellowship Church is a vibrant, grace-giving, intergenerational and diverse community of Christ-followers who are growing toward maturity and wholeness in Christ together in every dimension of our lives. 

We believe God has called us to be a light in our community and an incarnational witness in our world.  We yearn for “God’s Grace to grow in us, through us and among us, bringing the fullness of Jesus to all of life”.  We do this through love, empathy and sacrificial service, warmly and humbly engaging those who don’t yet know Jesus and those who are marginalized by society.  We seek to live our lives with an awareness of and dependence upon God’s Presence with us moment by moment and we seek to be His Presence, by the power of His Spirit, where we live, work, play and serve. 

We are located in Timonium, Maryland, just outside of Baltimore. Visit our website, to learn more.
