eGrace 8/2/2018

Hey, Grace’rs,

It was so very good to be back with you last weekend. Feeling stronger every day but still have 3-4 weeks before I’m up to speed again. I appreciate the prayers these last few weeks. In case you missed it, here’s the final Ask Pastor Tim question from our July series.

This weekend we launch a new series: Helping Homes Thrive. We’re going to look at some of the important ingredients that go into building strong households…regardless of what form your household takes. This weekend: Back to the Future: The one thing guaranteed to help your household thrive! (And it has to do with food which is a plus!) Families with last names starting with A-F have the food table this weekend.

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)
