eGrace for 7/27/17

Hey, Grace’rs

This weekend we move on to the 7th and Final Miracle of Jesus recorded in John’s Gospel—Jesus and Dead Man (John 11:1-45) Since it’s a fifth weekend in the month, It’s a food table free for all where all of us can bring something to share.

If you missed worship last weekend, you can get caught up by watching the sermon on Jesus and the Blind Man here. Also, if you didn’t get a chance to support the mission of Grace while you were gone, you can do so here.

Coming Up in Worship:

For the Men—Coming in August
A Man’s Manly Guide to the Bible. The Bible is one of the most powerful tools for shaping men into followers of Jesus. But most men don’t know how to use the Bible and are afraid to admit it for fear of looking inadequate. This fun, interactive, man-friendly introduction to the Bible will give men the confidence they need to dive into God’s word to them. Every Saturday in August, 6:30-7:30 am. You can register online or at worship this weekend. $25 includes a manly Bible.  We already have almost 30 guys signed up so far!

Lego Building Party: Saturday, August 19, after Sat@5 Worship. $3.00 per kit (we have duplos for the littles). Free food! You can sign up online now.

Grace Fantasy Football Annual Draft Party: Sunday, August 20@1. We have room for only 11 teams this year. Sign up in the lobby.

The Boy’s Club: If you are raising sons/grandsons, teaching boys, or care about boys and the challenges they face in the 21st Century, I want to invite you to join me for the Boy’s Club. We’ll read a book on boys and then spend two one hour sessions together talking about what we learned and doing some brain-storming on a strategy for raising boys into men who follow Jesus. Email me at if you want to be a part of the Club. (We’ll focus on the girls next!)
