eGrace for 9/21/2017

Hey, Grace’rs

I’m looking forward to being back with you this weekend as we wrap up our series on the Creed by looking at what it means when we confess that we believe in the Holy Spirit. We also have a very special weekend of music planned as we continue our look at the Reformation of Christian Music (consider it a throwback worship weekend…). Families with last names starting with S-Z have the food table this weekend.

If you missed worship last weekend, you can get caught up by watching Alan’s sermon on the Resurrection.

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

Coming Up in Worship:
September 30/Oct 1: Our final series in our 2017 celebration of the Protestant Reformation: The Reforming Power of God’s Grace. Each weekend we’ll look at a different quote from Martin Luther, rooted in Scripture, about the depths of God’s bold, reckless grace.

Part of the joy of worshipping together is seeing the various age groups serving as ushers, greeters, and communion servers. I know that those who serve get a grace kick out of it as well. You can join them. We’ll have a brief training for all ages right after each service on the weekend of September 23/24.

Security Team Training: Tuesday, September 26@6:30 pm. Interested? Sign up in the lobby or email
