Faith Handles with Billy Echols-Richter
Have you ever tried to carry your luggage without a handle?  It would be difficult and challenging.  It is the same with our lives.  It seems we are carrying around a lot of questions that often encumber and weigh us down.  Faith does not always give us the answers, but it gives us the handles to better navigate our way on the journey of life.

Faith Handles is a subscription-based video message (sent via email) in which Rev. Billy Echols-Richter addresses questions of faith.  Subscribers will be invited to submit their own questions to the conversation and once a quarter Billy will host a hybrid in-person/Zoom gathering to address questions in real time. 


Sunday Morning Studies
Sundays @ 9:15am in Room 214 

Sunday Morning Studies will take a break for the summer. Check back for updates when new studies start up in the fall. 


Pub Theology
Holy Grail Pub (Plano) 

Check back for updates when this group starts back up in the fall. 

Do you question things a lot and then ask questions about your questions? Is existentialism a way of life for you? Do you enjoy diving deep into life’s hardest theological quandaries? Then this is the group for you! A lively, fun, welcoming discussion about the big questions of theology, life, and everything!

This group is led by Jeff Bouis. Join our Facebook group HERE. 

Small Groups at Grace Avenue
Grace Avenue offers a variety of small group opportunities.  Some are on-going and can be joined at any time.  Other groups are formed twice a year (in September and January).

This group is a safe space where our queer siblings can express how it feels to be a queer Christian and to study the Bible through a queer, justice focused lens.
We support and accompany each other through life and organize social activities in our area. Our community welcomes all queer adults and allies who love and advocate for LGBTQ+ rights.
