eGrace for 11/22/2017

Hey, Grace’rs,

Happy Thanksgiving. To quote the Apostle Paul, I thank God every time I think about you! I am grateful for your commitment to inviting all generations to follow Jesus on the bold, reckless adventure of grace!

This weekend we kick off the Advent Season (the time of preparation for Christmas) with a new series: Christmas Goes to the Radio. Our song this week: I’m Dreaming of a White Christmas. Families with last names starting with S-Z have the food table this weekend.

The Grace Annual Turkey Games, this Saturday, right after the Sat@5 service. Fun stuff for the kids and the adults. A volleyball competition (with a glow in the dark Volleyball!). The kids will be making Christmas cards to be sent to our soldiers serving overseas. Plus Free Walking Tacos! And more!
