Men's Breakfast - New Beginnings

January 14, 2023

8:00am – 10:00am

Location: 910 S. Winter Park Drive, Casselberry, FL 32707

Metro Men, join our monthly men's breakfast in the chapel. Eddie Needham will be sharing on "new beginnings."  Jesus says, "Behold, I make all things new."  That is a proclamation for the new heavens and new earth, but is also an invitation for us to put new wine into new wineskins here and now, and not keep patching up the old.  We'll discuss opportunities for strategic growth in our lives, personally and corporately.  Come and be refreshed as "iron sharpens iron" with Holy Spirit-led sparks catching flame in our midst.  We'll share bodacious bacon, fabulous fruit, and coffee cowabunga.  Bring your Bible and bring a friend.  Please contact Eddie Needham at for questions.

Controversial Conversations

February 10, 2023

6:00pm – 8:30pm

Location: 910 S. Winter Park Drive, Casselberry, FL 32707

Often during the week, I'll find myself sitting in Chris' office for longer than I intended to. What was supposed to be a quick chat about how a new season of a children's show introduced the concept of same-sex couples to my 6 and 2-year-old instead led into an hour-long conversation about parenting in our culture.

Or there was that time when I was late to a meeting because Chris and I got lost in a conversation about how women have been hindered in church culture, how it harms the entire church, and how we can empower women moving forward.

Your takeaway from all of this might be that I need to spend less time in Chris' office. Stop talking, close his office door, and get back to work.

Instead, I want to invite you in.

GP Conference - The Church

February 23, 2023 to February 25, 2023

All Day

Location: 910 S. Winter Park Drive, Casselberry, FL 32707

We are excited to announce our annual Grace Partnership Conference that will be held from February 23rd to February 25th, 2023. We are grateful for what God has done in the past, but in 2023 we are expecting greater things!

We are praying for a year of fruitfulness! This year the theme is The Church: Metaphors for Fruitfulness. The Bible describes the Church in different ways for the purpose of producing fruitfulness in our churches and our lives. We are going to explore and unpack five different metaphors to deepen our love for Jesus and His Church.

We are excited about having Jeff Medders with us as he will share his heart and passion for the church. Jeff serves on staff at Risen Church in Houston, TX. He hosts The Acts 29 Podcast and has authored the books Gospel Formed and Humble Calvinism.

We will also hear from pastors in Grace Partnership as well as bring an update on all that God is doing and what he will doing in 2023 and beyond! Please save those dates and make it a priority to attend! Everyone is welcome, and please bring a friend!
