eGrace for 11/2/2017

Hey, Grace’rs,

This weekend: If the world ever needed Christians to harness the combustible power of kindness, now is the time. This weekend we launch a new three part series: Harnessing the Power of Kindness at Home, at Work, and in the World. We’ll look at three simple kindness acts that can change any relationship. Families with last names starting with A-F have the food table this weekend.

For this series I want to strongly recommend you purchase an excellent book on the topic by Shaunti Feldhahn called, The Kindness Challenge. She presents a practical 30 day challenge for implementing the power of kindness in your relationships. You can order it here (and remember to put Grace as your charity).

I also encourage you to go to www.jointhekindnesschallenge.com and hit the sign up link. You will receive a daily email for 30 days with insights into making kindness a habit. Choose to start the emails on Monday, Nov. 6.

Remember to come a bit early for worship to enjoy our new Lego room!

If you missed our Reformation Celebration last weekend you can view the entire service here.

If you didn’t get a chance to support the mission of Grace while you were gone, you can do so here: www.boldrecklessgrace.org. Scroll down to the on-line giving tile.

Christmas Show 2017: Tickets go on sale this weekend for our December 3 Christmas show!

Moms: A new gathering time for moms raising children and/or women in the role of mom. The Well has it’s first official gathering on Monday, November 6 to look at how to create fun, sacred experiences for the Advent/Christmas season. Please register at www.boldrecklessgrace.org and scroll down to the well. Free, but we want to make sure we have enough volunteers for childcare.

Newcomer Orientation, Saturday@6 on November 4. An informative, fun 75 minute overview of the mission of Grace and your place in it. Free food. Free Childcare. (If you want to be able to vote on the new pastor, when that time comes, you will need to be a voting member.) Sign up at church.

Women: Your Give Thanks event is coming up November 16, 6:30 pm-8:30 pm. Just $5 for dessert, a fantastic speaker, prizes, and much more. Bring a friend (not from Grace) and the friend comes free! Tickets in the lobby each weekend.
