Who We Are

God desires that you would have the most exciting, purpose-filled life imaginable. He longs for a relationship with you.

Our Mission: To lead people towards Jesus.

Behind the name

Why the name Grumlaw?

We want to be a church that serves Grand Blanc and the surrounding area- a church that is a part of the community.

When French settlers first arrived in the area and before Grand Blanc was ever named Grand Blanc, it was called “Grumlaw.” By naming the church Grumlaw, the community is literally engrained in our identity and name.

The Grumlaw 7

This is our strategy. These help us measure how we’re doing- they keep us on track towards our mission.

Weekends

Attend weekly services and begin exploring and experiencing your Creator.

Generosity

Everything that we have comes from God. Together we gather a percentage of our income to help build the local Church and make an impact in our communities. Over 10% of every dollar given to Grumlaw goes directly to planting churches across the globe.

Baptism

Once you put your faith in Jesus, then it’s time to go public with your faith through water Baptism.

Groups

Life is not meant to be faced alone. That is why we have created Connect Groups. These groups allow you to connect with God and each other on a deeper level- we are created for community!

Share

God calls all Jesus followers to share His life changing message with others. This occurs through intentional discipleship and sharing with those in our sphere of influence (where we work, eat, shop, and play).

Daily Encounter

God desires to have a personal relationship with you- this only happens through daily interaction with Him.

Serve

Not only does God call us to be generous with our finances, but with our time and talents as well. He desires for you to use your gifts to have an impact in the world and help build the local church.

Will you consider supporting Grumlaw financially?

It’s no secret that it’s going to take money to pull this off. To say it simply, we need you. We are so grateful that you are considering partnering with us.

Why should I give?

Know that when you give to Grumlaw, you’re not just giving to salaries and rent- you’re allowing us to be generous in Grand Blanc, in the state of Michigan, and around the world. A detailed budget is available upon request.

The Need

$350k

It’s a big number, but we’re confident God is going to surround us with generous people and organizations to reach this goal.

With Christ at the center, we are driven by generosity, truth, excellence, and creativity.

Beliefs

What We Believe

God

We believe in one God who exists in three distinct persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We believe that Jesus Christ is the second member of the Trinity and the son of God- He became flesh to reveal God to humanity and to save us.

Humanity

We believe that all people were created in the image of God and were designed to have relationship with Him. However, all people have sinned, and in turn, ruined that relationship with Him. Through our own efforts, we are incapable of mending that relationship.

The Bible

We believe that the entire Bible is the inspired Word of God without error because the writers were moved by the Spirit of God to write those words. It is the only book that has the power to transform lives.

Salvation

We believe that the sacrifice of Jesus Christ provides the sole basis for the forgiveness of sin. God freely offers salvation to those who place their faith in the death and resurrection of Christ as payment for their sin.

Baptism

We believe baptism is an outward expression of an inward commitment- it is a declaration to the world that we have received salvation through Jesus and symbolizes His death, burial, and resurrection.

Christian Life

We believe all Jesus followers should live a life for Jesus, not themselves. This occurs through obedience to the Word of God and daily submission to the Holy Spirit.

The Church

We believe the Church is the body of Christ, of which Jesus is the head. The members of the Church are those who have placed their faith in Jesus Christ. The purpose of the Church is to glorify God and make Him known throughout the world.
