SHOWING OUR CITY THE GRACE OF GOD
Grace in the City is the local missions and benevolence ministry of Grace Point Fellowship that exists to help others know the grace of God and develop passionate servants of Jesus through acts of local service. We believe that God has positioned our church where he has us for a reason and that reason is to serve the needs of our local community in tangible expressions of God’s grace and goodness. When Jesus teaches that our love for God should lead us also to “love your neighbor as yourself” in Mark 12:31 we believe he meant it and he intended us to love our actual neighbors. At the heart of Grace in the City is the desire to do just that — love our neighbors — starting in Franklin and Springboro, and moving out from there into all of greater Cincinnati and Dayton.
Live Local. Love Local.
Some of the ways we love our neighbors are by serving those in need in our church and community, investing in our city, and developing strategic partnerships with local organizations that work to demonstrate God’s grace to those hurting most. We call this loving local. It also means participating in local events, supporting local businesses, and engaging in your local community, which we call, living local. If you’re interested in learning more about how you can live local and love local, check out a few of our upcoming service opportunities and the places where we partner listed below and sign-up to get involved!

Springboro & Franklin Public Schools
Children are often among those who suffer the most from circumstances outside of their control. By partnering with public schools in Franklin, we are able to help provide for students in need by working with those who are most aware of how we can make the greatest impact! In 2017, we were able to provide Franklin Schools with over 500 backpacks filled with school supplies and other items for schools to distribute to students in need!
Grace For Today
Are you looking for a safe place to find help and healing? Grace For Today is a women’s support group led by a team of ladies from Grace Point Fellowship who share a common journey of healing from the past. Our goal is to continue to grow and heal together by helping and supporting one another today. Join us each week as we look to God’s grace to discover help for the challenges of today and hope for a peaceful tomorrow!
At each weekly meeting, we walk through issues rooted in our pasts and work together to find help and encouragement together to live our lives in freedom today. We use biblical truth without “preaching”, but instead seek to share how God has and is working in us today, remembering the past as points on our life-map that tell us how far we have come and giving us hope for a tomorrow that will be beyond anything we could hope or imagine.
If you are interested in being a part of this group or know someone who may benefit from connecting with other women who have experienced similar situations in their life, feel free to contact Linda Bilunka at 937.368.8469 for more information.
