eGrace – 2/8/2018

Hey, Grace’rs,

I’m looking forward to being back with you this weekend. I’m particularly excited because I will be interviewing one of our Grace’rs who has a powerful story of grace and healing.

This Saturday after our 5 pm worship service: Enjoy a meal after worship. $2 per person/$5 per family suggested donation. Menu this Saturday: Another great meal provided by our Grace Race families (whose teens will be going on a missions trip this summer to Houston).

We had an outstanding response to our first Sunday Night Live with our K-5th grade kids. The next one will be Feb. 18@4.

Newcomer Orientation, Sunday, Feb. 11@11:15. Join me and some of your staff for an informal introduction to the mission of Grace. Lunch provided. Childcare Provided. Sign up at worship or email Kendrah at

Valentine’s Dance, Sunday, Feb. 11@6 pm. This was such a huge hit last year we’re bringing it back. Proceeds will support The Noise Performing Arts group for their summer tour to Seattle. Tickets in the lobby.

The Well, Tuesday, Feb. 13@ 6 pm for our moms with children of all ages. Sign up in the lobby or contact Suzanne at

Ash Wednesday, Wednesday, February 14, 6-7 pm. We’re going to try something different this year: Continuous Communion and Ashes. Come anytime between 6 and 7 pm. We’ll have a brief worship service printed out for you to pray through. Then come up for communion and ashes.

MenTooBoys breakfast, Saturday, February 17@8 am. For dads, sons, men, and boys without dads around. This month: Free Breakfast and a chance to learn how to throw a football, and more! Sign up in the lobby.

Women’s Bible Study with Pastor Tim—5 weeks on the Gospel of Mark, begins Tuesday, February 20@6:30. Sign up in the lobby.

The Helping Boys Thrive Summit, Saturday, February 24 (Downtown Phoenix). For educators, parents, and anyone wanting to inspire our boys to good manhood! We have changed the name a bit to open up the event to public educators and other who work with boys outside of the Christian community. Information here (until we move to the new site): However, because Grace is a sponsor, you can register for $10 (a $25 discount). You can let your friends know, too! Register here.

Feed My Starving Children, March 1-3.

BJ Thomas in concert, Sunday, April 15. Tickets on sale starting March 3/4.
