Hey, Grace’rs,

This weekend we honor the men and dads of Grace during our Father’s Day Weekend Worship Celebration. I encourage you to bring along the important men in your life! We have some fun, compelling stuff planned for the men. Families with last names starting with L-R are up for the Father’s Day Food Table.

Coming Saturday, July 7, after the 5 pm worship service: Chocolate Buffet and Water Balloon Games! Bring your favorite chocolate dessert to worship with you and we’ll indulge after the service and cool off with a few quick water balloon games.

Coming Up:

June 23/24: Would the Real God Please Stand Up? Why did God throw Jonah into that whale?

June 30/July 1: Would the Real God Please Stand Up? When the Heavens Declare the Glory of God, what is it they Declare about God and God’s Glory?

The month of July: Ask Pastor Tim. We’ve not done this for awhile. For several of the weekends of July your questions will set the agenda for the message. Send your questions to and he will choose the top 5 questions. I will answer them sight unseen (at least at the Saturday@5 service).
