We are excited to introduce you to our newest church to join SN: Grace Life Church in Scottsdale, AZ led by pastor Josh Matteson! Grace Life is our first SN church in the state of Arizona, and we are excited that our partnerships are spreading in new places throughout the US. Read their story, celebrate their wins, and please pray for this church plant in 2017! 

Grace Life's Story

GraceLife launched on Easter Sunday, 2017 with about 20 families. God called us into existence in order to live the life of grace together in community and on mission as we advance the spread of the Gospel and the glory of the Savior. We see ourselves as a family of disciples and servant-missionaries who have been sent here to North Phoenix in order to reach our neighbors with the Gospel and impact our neighborhood with the life, love, and hope of Jesus Christ.

Key Wins in 2017

  1. We baptized our first couple on our Launch Sunday!
  2. We have had many in our Core Group step up and take responsibility for various ministries! 
  3. We are conducting training this weekend in anticipation of launching two community groups in a couple weeks! 
  4. We have had 18 worship services as a church in our rented facility at a public school! 

Ways You Can Pray

  1. That we would establish relationships with three public schools in our immediate area.
  2. That we would train community group leaders and launch 2 community groups this fall.
  3. That we can add 5 new families to the church plant core.
