Speak

Grace Hour

The Grace Hour is one of Christian broadcasting’s longest running interactive talk shows.

Each weekday the program airs on WRBS’s 1230 AM station as well as on the internet and Facebook Live.

Listeners participate on the air with host Pastor John Love and others in lively discussions.

Bible questions are answered and important spiritual themes are explored during the hour-long, live broadcast.

Dan Dunbar currently serving in South Korea was one of the men ordained at this year’s International Convention.

The Midnight Express and its team of 25 under Pastor Ray Poellot, provides for the spiritual and physical needs of Baltimore’s homeless population. In this year, 78 have visited our church for the first time, 47 have accepted Christ, and 21 have moved out of the woods. Over 6,400 sandwiches and 64 gallons of soup have been delivered along with over 100 tents, clothing, blankets and other necessities.

Reach

There’s ample opportunity to reach Baltimore’s youth through Saturday outreach.

Below:  Pastor Jim Hadley shares a lesson at the Good News Clubs. For the past 6 years, GGWO has partnered with Child Evangelism Fellowship to preach the Gospel in public schools.  GGWO is now active in 4 public schools with over 100 kids taught by a team of 31 volunteers weekly.

Inspire

Reaching the next generation is crucial. Weekly Sunday School and Junior Church programs (nursery through 8th grade) serve 200 children with 55 volunteers. Also, our Youth Department and 90 volunteers help make Camp Life the place that makes a difference for kids from all over. This year 340 were in attendance, with close to 80 children benefiting from sponsorship.

Camp Life offers a variety of activities, but most important is the spiritual emphasis. Above: Pastor Love preaches at Camp Life bonfire; campers enjoy the various activities available

Camp Life is a great place to make friends and worship the Lord together.

GGWO has a vision to plant 30 churches between Virginia & New York. This year GGWO acquired or dedicated new buildings in Silver Spring, MD; York, PA; Federal Hill (Baltimore); Herald Harbor, MD. New works are happening in Wilmington, DE and New Jersey.

Pastor Justin Schaller and the Federal Hill team moved into their renovated historic building.

The church had been meeting weekly at a local Catholic facility until their home was ready. The Sailors Union church was gifted to GGWO after its pastor retired and the congregation had dwindled. The church was constructed in 1873 to serve seafarers and port workers based in Baltimore’s harbor. The original congregation had been meeting on a floating chapel ship since 1846.

Train

Our three schools – Greater Grace Learning Center, Greater Grace Christian Academy and Maryland Bible College and Seminary – have a combined enrollment of more than 400 – ages 2 through 90.

Greater Grace Christian Academy has been serving Baltimore families since 1987.
