We were made to belong. That’s why each of us deeply desires to be known AND loved. But sin has made community difficult and painful. It’s no longer natural and easy, so we have to work hard to connect. But community is the context in which we grow. There are things you will never experience from Jesus apart from another Christian.
Affinity Groups
Community Groups
Events / Calendar


Affinity Groups are smaller gatherings around a particular struggle, demographic or topic of interest. They’re a wonderful way of applying the gospel in the context of community to your particular need or circumstances.


Welcome to Women’s Ministries at Grace!

We seek to offer the hope and grace of the gospel in any phase of life: unmarried, married, divorced, widowed, mothers of young children, mothers of teenagers, empty-nesters, and any phase in between! Come join us and you’ll discover we are students, professionals, homemakers, retirees, artists, and more. Some of us are new to the church, others have been around a long time. And all of us are on a journey.

Feel free to check out the variety of opportunities we offer. Women’s Ministries exists as a means to care for and enfold women into the life of the church by helping them connect, learn, serve and receive care in ways that undergird Grace’s mission to GATHER, GROW and GO.

  • We gather to connect with one another at social events, bible studies, and retreats.
  • We grow as we learn from God’s Word and from each other in short-term classes, conversations about relevant topics, and bible studies.
  • We go to serve and care for one another through informal mentoring relationships, and specialized affinity groups

You have an open invitation to join us. We look forward to getting to know you! If you have any questions, or would like to meet for coffee or a walk, please contact Kathy Jenke at kathy@gracepres.com

GraceKids is the nursery, preschool, and children’s ministry of our church. Our aim is to work alongside parents in showing children the love Jesus has for them and helping them to trust him with their lives. We do this through Bible teaching, fun activities, and loving and engaged volunteers.

The GraceKids program is two-fold: Preschool and Elementary.

GraceKids – Nursery & Preschool

The Preschool program is open to any child, ages 0-5. The children are split into three to four classes, depending on service: a 0-12 months, 12-24 months, 2’s class and 3-5’s class.

What We’re Studying

GraceKids – Elementary

The Elementary program is for children in Kindergarten through 5th grade. Those classes are split into small groups for grades K/1st, 2nd/3rd, and 4th/5th. We use a curriculum from Orange in all of our classes from 2’s to 5th grade.

What We’re Studying


The heart of our church is a network of small groups, in which face-to-face friendships, encouragement and mutual ministry develop. These groups are led by members and meet in homes throughout Silicon Valley. They are also the primary place of prayer for the church and God’s kingdom.
