Since my ministry at Community Grace Church started in January 2020, I have been privileged to be part of seeing our church building our impact in amazing ways! This has happened through the faithful generosity and participation of you, our attendees and members.
It is exciting for our church to be on a steady growth curve as we increase in ministry reach, small groups, membership, and weekly attendance. As we look to the future, we are asking you to continue building impact so we can continue seeing God glorified in our community and beyond. Next year, we will expand our focus in the global mission by adopting the Fulani people. In just a few short years, LCA will be leaving our campus and our desire is to effectively grow our ministry and mission locally during that change, which requires investment in our church building's needs. Will you partner and invest in this initiative, above your regular giving? We are building impact to fulfill our vision to "worship the King, mature as family, and engage the world."
- Pastor Reg Overstreet
In the last four years we have strengthened our ministries and we have started new ministries: Hospitality Ministries, Friday Night Soccer, Men’s Leadership Class, Community Care Fund, and many others. We’ve also added six staff members to our team, launched our new vision statement, annual church goals, and experienced double digit budget increases.
LOCAL MINISTRY AND MISSION
Major Facility Needs - Our current A/C has lasted 25 years, praise God, but it is dying and repair is not possible. Caring for our building and providing cool air in our warm summer months is crucial to continue making impact in our community.
Ministry Impact and Facility Enhancements - We will continue to update and optimize our worship center and gym spaces by addressing acoustic treatment and upgrading technology fitting for future growth. Handicap accessibility will be added to our upstairs youth room.
Preparing for LCA's Transition - We will prepare reserves for when Lakeland Christian Academy moves out of our building in 2-3 years. When that happens, we will move our nursery and offices and transform our campus for further exciting impact in the community.
Outreach to the Nations Among Us Including Soccer and Hispanic Outreach - Friday night soccer at Community Grace has become well-known in our community. We hope to grow that outreach and are adding new methods of impacting the many nations which live among us in Warsaw.
GLOBAL MINISTRY AND MISSION
We will launch our strategic mission focus to adopt the Fulani people of Central Africa. This will include celebrating an adoption ceremony and sending a vision and prayer team to ministry to them in 2024.

We've attended Community Grace for 32 years. In that time, we have seen a lot of high points and some low points. We believe the Lord is currently blessing Community Grace and we are very excited, probably more than ever, to see where He is going to take us and how we are going to be able to impact the world for Christ!
God has worked in a variety of seasons in our lives from being college students, newlyweds, new parents, raising children, empty nesters to grand parenting. Through the teaching, rubbing shoulders with godly friends, and opportunities to serve we have grown in our relationships with Christ throughout the years.
By giving financially, God is using what He has blessed us with, to bless all at Community Grace, community of Warsaw and the World! Whether it's through our general budget, missions giving, or meeting a certain need, we love supporting our church's needs and also hearing reports of people being impacted for Christ outside of our church through Community Grace's impact. That joy that comes across a face when people have been unexpectedly blessed is contagious! It is also a good feeling to be obedient to the Lord in our giving!
If you're considering giving to the Building Impact Fund, we would say to look at the goals and purposes of this giving. If you feel these are things that you believe are important and you are feeling the prompting of the Holy Spirit, then give!
We believe you will be blessed by developing consistent giving throughout the entire year! Giving is a blessing that is an eternal investment. Everything we have has been given to us from our Heavenly Father. It brings God joy when we give financially and can be done by any age. If you give to the Building Impact Initiative it will not only bless the areas you are involved with at Community Grace but it will bless all activities held at 909 S Buffalo, Warsaw community, and the world!
Faith promise gifts to the Building Impact Initiative can be given on Sundays, through the mail, via Venmo, and online.
