Hey, Grace’rs,

This weekend is a don’t miss weekend—and this isn’t just hype! This weekend Associate Pastor candidate Kathleen Lotz and her family will be at all three services. I will be interviewing her during the sermon time to give you a chance to get to know her. And you will have a chance to meet Kathleen, her hubby, Josh, and their son, Oliver, after the services. Families with last names starting with G-K have the food table this weekend.

We will also be honoring and praying for our educators and students as they begin the new school year.

Last weekend we launched our new August series: Helping Homes Thrive. If you missed it, you can view the message here (the number one key for helping homes thrive).
