We celebrate Pastor Emeritus, Mark Beeson’s passing to be with Jesus in heaven. Thirty-four years ago, in a Michiana living room, Mark and Sheila Beeson began Granger Community Church. We celebrate and honor their unwavering commitment for over 34 years to the cause of Christ and to seeing the local church continue to be the hope of the world. Mark was an adventurer, pioneer, storyteller and artist whose photographs were just as compelling as his dynamic communication. He was a bold spiritual entrepreneur who invited people to a life of purpose by calling out the God-given potential inside of them. He was also an accomplished scholar, who could relate to people in their comfort zone. The legacy he leaves behind is one of strong faith, dependability, integrity and servant leadership. Mark Beeson was, in so many words, one-of-a-kind. We are so grateful for 34 amazing years of his love and leadership.

It doesn’t matter who you are, where you’ve been, or what you’ve done. You matter to God and that means you matter to us. You are of infinite worth. We’re so glad you’re here. Granger Community Church is made up of real people, living real lives, making mistakes, experiencing joy, doing the best we can with what we have, taking our next steps toward Christ and helping others do the same.

Weekly Gathering

Current Series

Ah, music. It soothes the wounded soul, lifts us up when we’re sad, inspires dance parties in the kitchen and can transport us right back to a specific moment in time. Don’t change the station! For four weeks this January, we’re firing up a list of all our emotions’ top hits and exploring ways that music can help us understand everything from our joy to our anger. We’re currently gathering in-person and online.


We want kids to be where they can learn best, hearing about Jesus in an age-appropriate context that’s engaging, loving and safe—that’s where Granger Kids comes in. Granger Kids is available for newborns-5th grade during all weekend services. The auditorium is a learning environment best suited for students in 6th grade on up. Students also have their own gatherings with Granger Student Ministries (GSM) on Sunday afternoons and evenings at the Granger Campus and Wednesday evenings at the Elkhart Campus during the school year.

Christmas Offering 2020


For 34 years, the people of Granger Community Church have given above and beyond their normal gifts, towards a special Christmas Offering. Despite the challenges 2020 has brought, we look forward to this special tradition that we do as a whole church and the ways our giving will change lives. This year we’re giving to focuses that include: feeding hungry people in Michiana, supporting the next generation of world-changers, meeting needs for education and transformation both near and far and expanding our reach through online church.
