About GFC | Van Dyke

No matter your background, GFC is a place where you can explore Christianity at your own pace. God’s truth is shared through contemporary music and practical, plain language messages. There is no pressure to give money, and we promise you – and your children – won’t be bored. Best of all, we encourage you to leave the suit and tie at home and come as you are.

Grace Family is one church in many locations, and our mission is to lead people (just like you) into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ. GFC | Van Dyke is accomplishing this mission in its own unique way, and we’d love for you to be a part of it. 

What to Expect

Our worship services are designed to help each person make a personal connection with Jesus Christ. The use of contemporary music and multimedia create an atmosphere where you can connect with God and grow as believers.

Our pastoral staff strives to deliver Bible-based messages that are relevant to the challenges of everyday life. From those who are just beginning to investigate Christianity to those who are in a mature relationship with Christ, Grace Family Church is a place where Christ can touch people in a personal way.


Investing in the Next Generation

Available during every weekend service.

The Clubhouse is offered during every weekend service and is a place where children can learn in an interactive way about how God made them, God loves them and Jesus wants to be their friend forever! We want to partner with you to help your children grow in their relationship with Christ. 

Available during every weekend service.

The Zone is bursting with creativity and energy that is obvious from the moment your child walks through the doors. Students experience high-energy worship, interactive games, drama, video, and teachings from the Word of God.

7:00 – 8:30 PM | Student Service (Middle School & High School Welcome)

9:30 & 11:30 AM | Middle School Service

United Student Ministry is designed to help middle school and high school students connect with Christ, find authentic community, and seek the purpose that God has for their lives.

We focus on creating an atmosphere where students can belong, even before they may be ready to believe. Each campus has a Student Ministry team ready to lead your student into a growing relationship with Christ!

Every Tuesday, Waters Campus, at 7:30 PM.

The Exchange is the young adults (18-35) ministry of Grace Family Church. We provide various groups and classes throughout the week, at multiple campuses, and a weekly gathering at the Waters Campus. Join us for multiple ways to get connected and for opportunities to serve throughout the Tampa Bay area.
