With Us

Serving is the heartbeat of our community. We believe that when you serve, it makes a radical difference in your own life.

I found my place to belong

Anthony grew up in a Christian household with parents who consistently shared God’s Word with him but felt like an outcast and suffered with self-image issues. This created an anxiety of being valued which led to depression, hopelessness, and drug use at an early age.

“My heart got so heavy, to the point where I broke down crying one night and knew I couldn’t take this anymore.” And then Jesus…

A renewed sense of self motivation came over his life. He began turning the negatives into positives. He lost 120 pounds, began defeating a pornography addiction, and finally living life without anxiety or depression. Anthony always believed in God, but never understood what it was like to know and to grow in Him. Anthony came to 1NE and found community, fellowship and began to understand the process of the things he had walked through. We love Anthony!

Stop feeling alone and find your purpose

There are times in life we feel alone and without purpose. Grace Chapel Young Adults is a community where people can find life-giving, consistent friendships and discover their God-given gifts. Cultivating your individual gifting helps you uncover what your Kingdom purpose is. 

Here's what we promise:

 Friendly team here to help

Passionate & spontaneous

There is a place for you

A free home cooked meal

Biblical teaching that is relevant to everyone

We don’t ask guests for their money

Life Groups

When you begin to seek God and establish real relationships, these things hold true: insecurity becomes peace and contentment; fear becomes courage; rejection becomes acceptance;  shame becomes power. Get into a closer community and never walk through life again alone.
