eGrace for 4/12/2018

Hey, Grace’rs,

This weekend we continue our two part series looking at our girls and boys, the challenges they face in the 21st Century, and our call to build grit and resiliency in them. This weekend: Building Resilient Boys. This is a series designed to engage all of us as adults, whether we have sons or not, in God’s invitation to us to pour grace into the kids in our congregation. We will bless each of our boys and give them a gift. Families with last names starting with G-K have the food table this weekend.

Saturday@5 After Service Dinner: $2 per person. $5 for families of 3 or more. This Saturday: I have no idea but I know it’s going to be really, really good because every weekend the food has been outstanding.

If you missed the message on Girls this past weekend, you can view it here.
