Grace Fellowship's Evening Service Launch on March 17, 2019.

On March 17, Grace Fellowship OPC held their Evening Service Launch. Now, as Easter approaches, they plan to hold their official Full Service Launch on April 21, 2019!

In God's provision, they've been able to make a connection with The Bridge Youth Center, a ministry in downtown Zeeland. They have held evening services and other events (studies, game nights, hymn sings, etc.) at this location since.

If you are ever interested in visiting Grace Fellowship OPC, they meet at The Bridge: 210 E Main Ave, Zeeland, MI 49464.

Why Grace Fellowship?

The name Grace Fellowship OPC came about through much thought and prayer. Harvest OPC and Pastor Mike Schout wanted a name that communicated both the outward heart of God for lost sinners as well as the idea of being a welcoming and close knit body of believers. They believe that "Grace Fellowship" captures both of those vital truths.

The verse tethered to the name is found in 1 John 1:3: “[...] that which we have seen and heard we proclaim also to you, so that you too may have fellowship with us; and indeed our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son Jesus Christ.” As sinners saved by grace, it is our privilege and responsibility to proclaim the gospel to our neighbors out of a sincere desire that they would share in the fellowship of the gospel with us, which is ultimately a fellowship with God Himself through Jesus Christ. Our hope and prayer is that the name serves as a sort of on-ramp for people in the Zeeland area and surrounding communities to experience the stunning beauty of the gospel for sinners.
