Hey, Grace’rs,

Greetings from Israel! We all arrived safely on Tuesday evening and today started our 9 day tour throughout the land of the Bible and Jesus. We’ll try to keep you updated on our Facebook page. https://www.facebook.com/communityofgraceaz/ We’ll be back with you March 25/26.

This weekend our Bishop, Steve Talmage, will be continuing our series on the Lord’s Prayer, looking at what it means when we pray…Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. Steve has been strong supporter of our ministry. Through his leadership we were given the 9.5 acres we call our church home. He’s been our Bishop for most of our history. Come on out this weekend and let him know how thankful we are for him. He’s officially done as our Bishop July 31 so this will be his last time with us as Bishop. Families with last names starting with L-R have the food table this weekend.

Remember to bring your change this weekend and hand it off to the kids as our our Kids’ “Noisy Offering” will go to Feed My Starving Children.

Coming Up:
Feed My Starving Children Food Pack: March 24/25 at Grace. We’ll be packing 100,000 meals in 2 hour shifts. You can sign up for your shift at www.boldrecklessgrace.org and hit the FMSC registration tile. Alycia will be sending an email this week on new packing opportunities.
