Our Toronto Pilgrimage is one of a kind.

North Indy Campus

Calling all nerds, geeks, and lifelong learners! If you get way too excited about exoplanets, if you can discuss free will and determinism long into the night, if you've ever had questions they never seem to answer in church, THIS is the class for you. Join us as we learn and discuss a mind-bending array of topics such as the nature of time, an introduction to Islam, alternative medicines, depression and faith, and modern miracle-workers. The only prerequisite is curiosity!

​Short-term Trips

Throughout the year, Grace Church offers short-term trips specifically designed for Young Adults. Young Adult teams visit partner ministries and aid in the work they are doing in places like New York City and Toronto. These trips are just one more way disciples are being launched into God’s mission. Consider joining a trip, your life will never be the same. Visit our Short-term Trips page form more information.
