More about Grace Community Church
Grace Community is a church in East Texas focused on transforming people into dedicated disciples of Jesus Christ. Three core values are present in nearly everything we do: Worship, Mission, and Community. While Grace has three campuses (two in Tyler and one in Lindale), the ministry flows from the people that call Grace home. Thus, the ministry engages where our congregation works, plays, lives and volunteers. You'll find Grace in Tyler, Lindale, East Texas, and the world. GCC is active and engaged in a variety of ministry opportunities to impact our communities. We currently have missionaries and mission projects in nearly thirty countries.
