WHO WE ARE
We are on mission to leave a trace of God’s love everywhere we go.
Have you noticed that we don’t see people anymore? We are enamored with our cell phones, our schedules always have us in a rush, and we seem to be walking around with blinders on. In this vicious cycle we overlook our neighbors, our kids, spouses, and even the condition of our own soul. But what if…? What if we started to see people again? What if we made ourselves available once again and started living interruptible lives?
At Trace Church this is exactly what we are setting out to do. With a foundation built on Jesus, we want to leave a Trace of God’s love everywhere we go, but it starts with seeing people again (not dead people like in the “Sixth Sense,” that would be creepy). We believe this simple but very significant mission will bring about change, the kind of change that families need, cities need, and our churches need. Come join our mission and watch how simple changes can make a significant difference.
NEIGHBORSWe believe that life is better together. We feel as a church that the first mission field we are called to serve in is our own front yard…literally.
NationsChrist called us to spread the good news to all nations and Trace takes that call seriously. Our church is committed to helping those in other countries have basic needs, but more importantly have the opportunity to hear the good news.
Next GenWe care about our youth. When his disciples tried to turn them away, Jesus said “let the little children come to me.” Christ made the next generation a priority and because of that, we believe we are called to disciple our children and prepare them to be next generation leaders.
