Hey, Grace’rs,

Happy New Year!

Last weekend we launched our year-long journey into the Prodigal Reformation with a 5 week series: The Reckless Power of Prodigal Reforming Grace. This weekend we turn to the second aspect of God’s radical grace: Rooted in Grace (Luke 18:9-14). This mini-series is based on the Measures created last year as a part of an 8 month project to fine tune and put in writing our mission as a congregation. For those who want to see the whole document of what we created you can find it here. Families with last names starting with G-K have the food table this weekend.

Reckless Generosity:
As a part of our year-long deep dive into God’s Radical grace, we’re going to celebrate a monthly opportunity for reckless generosity.  On the first weekend of every month I want to invite you, if you do not currently tithe (give 10% of your income to the church) to try it for that one weekend.  Based on how much you earn each week, give 10% of it to the church and begin the journey into God’s gift of tithing.  Our first Tithing Weekend: February 4/5.
