I began attending Under Grace Community Fellowship around 2011 as part of a recovery program which was to assist me in overcoming a life altering accident and gain social skills to cope with everyday living. Although I was familiar with church life and the things "religious" folks were "supposed to do", life had shown me that looking well presented and financial status was mostly what a church person was. Folks do get caught up in earning money, but not really giving of themselves when it comes to church and giving of themselves and their talents and time. The non formal atmosphere made it easy to be comfortable with the genuine people I met. The worship music was contemporary like David Crowder Band, How he loves us. Mercy me, and other Christian artists I had heard on local radio. I could relate to this fellowship, and 94 year old sweet Ethyl had made it clear she had been fellowshipping under Pastor Gabriel Solorzanos preaching for 20 years, and she surely did have Jesus in her heart. Some folks there were elderly, some in their 20's and up...... and of course youths. The lack of judgment of people's attire, and the gracious non condemning attitude towards those struggling with addictions kept me going. Celebrate Recovery started up and contributed to my journey to wholeness.
The community food giveaways, clothing availability and helpful people in the congregation and Bible studies all contributed to my growth. Thank you, Jesus for saving me, thank you Holy Spirit and Heavenly Father for your faithfulness to those who believe. Thank you, UGCF for the prayers and preparations for people to receive the Grace of God at Under Grace Community Fellowship. I can truly say persistent attendance has helped me endure and continue to grow in the knowledge of the amazing love God has for me. This fellowship helps people become overcomers.
