eGrace for 4/5/2018

Hey, Grace’rs,

This weekend we begin a 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: Girls, Grace, and Grit. This is a series designed to engage all of us as adults, whether we have daughters or not, in God’s invitation to us to pour grace into the kids in our congregation. We will bless each of our girls and give them a gift. Families with last names starting with A-F have the food table this weekend.

Saturday@5 After Service Dinner: $2 per person. $5 for families of 3 or more. This Saturday: Baked Spaghetti!
