In January of 2015, Grace Ann Arbor Church and Crosswinds Community Church partnered together to form Grace Canton Church. With two church staffs coming together, the team prayed and prepared for how God could best use the ministry of Grace Canton to reach people in one of the fastest growing communities in Michigan.
Grace Canton officially launched to the community in September of 2015 and added a second Sunday morning service. The Sunday morning worship gatherings have grown to an average of over 200 people in attendance, and we are praying that God continues to grow this ministry's faith and numbers. However, our calling is not simply to grow a large church, but to seek the peace and prosperity of our city (Jeremiah 29:7). Thus, we continually ask ourselves, "Would the people in Canton notice (or even care) if we were to suddenly disappear from the fabric of our city?" (Hence, the name of the city plays an integral part of our name).
