About Grace Baptist Church

We are Grace Baptist Church, and by the grace of God, have an abundant history of over 100 years of Christ-centered ministry in the Iron River, WI area. Our congregation has grown to a beautiful, multigenerational blend of 100 members and regular attendees. This number climbs by an average of 10 people during the summer months due to the beautiful lake country in which we live. On any given Sunday year ’round, we’re invigorated by lots of energetic children, graced by believers who are in their later seasons of life, and blessed by all generations in between. We are a body of Christ-followers devoted to spiritual growth through the divinely inspired Word of God, the power of prayer, and the generous use of our time, God-given abilities and passions to impact our church family as well as our neighbors both near and far. In addition to worshipping together in a weekly Sunday morning service, various members of the body gather weekly for prayer, Bible studies, and youth group, as well as assisting with a variety of outreaches throughout the year. At Grace Baptist, we value allowing and encouraging our body of believers to use their God-given gifts to serve, inspire and strengthen the church family. Here are some of the areas in which our congregation uses its gifts on a volunteer basis to partner with the Holy Spirit and make our church the vibrant place it is:

• The worship team, which often includes youth • The children’s church leaders and support team • Both men’s and women’s ministry • VBS • Good news club
