eGrace – 9/6/2018

Hey, Grace’rs,

This weekend we launch a new series: Would the Real Christians Please Stand Up!  A Reckless Guide to Dangerously Good Faith.  Looking at stories from the life of Jesus we’re going to focus on what it means to follow Jesus in the 21st Century.  It’s going to be an important, compelling series.  Families with last names starting with G-K have the food table this weekend.

If you missed worship this past weekend you can watch the message on Putting the Soul Back into Your Home (and learn about what makes us spiritually constipated and the antidote—the fiber of the soul:) )

For all the information on what’s happening at Grace go to  Or…head to the App store and download the Grace App (search Community of Grace Peoria, AZ)
