It is our desire at the GR Kroc Church to lead people into a deeper relationship with Christ or to disciple them into deepening an already existing relationship with Him. We are a community of believers who want nothing more than to come alongside like-minded individuals focused on serving one another and the surrounding community in the name of Jesus Christ. We would love for you to come and join our family as we grow and worship together glorifying God with song, music, dance, and sound biblical preaching and teaching.

When we take the time to love God, love others, and serve the world, we are fulfilling what we as believers have been called to in the scriptures as found in Matthew  25:35-36,40-41: “For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.” The King will reply, “Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.”
