Grace Timonium


What are Connect groups?

Connect Groups at Grace are social groups that are based around an affinity or activity. Our wide variety of Connect Groups are designed for everybody so you can make friends who share your hobby. It doesn’t matter whether you call Grace your home, or even if you go to church at all. We don’t want to add something to your calendar, instead we are inviting you to do your hobby with others. Or maybe you are looking to learn something new. Where will you connect?
