Grace City Church is a non-profit organization dedicated to leading people into a life-transforming relationship with Jesus Christ. This means we embark on several different ways to develop and implement Christian services in our community. This includes our current campuses, resource dissemination, further investing in our innovative kids and youth programs, and involvement in our local and international aid initiatives to help people with acute needs from many different countries and cultures. We collect information about people to allow us to communicate with them, introduce them to our organization, promote the Gospel to them, pray and provide other Christian services to them, and inform them of our work. We do not use the information in any way other than to further our objects and purposes.
We might also use your information for the following purposes:

Sometimes, we may be legally required to disclose your information, for example, to government departments.
We may also sometimes share non-personal, non-sensitive, and de-identified information with research organizations.
How we collect your information:
We may collect information from you either directly or from third parties. Information we collect from third parties may be by formal or informal means.

You can access your information by asking us. Occasionally, we may need to refuse your request to access information, for example, where granting you access would infringe on someone else’s privacy.
