eGrace for 9/7/2017

Hey, Grace’rs

Greetings from the home of the Reformation, Lutherstadt, Wittenberg. Even though Jan and I will not be with you this weekend, this is still a good weekend to worship…because God is worthy of it. This weekend Sam returns to continue our look at the Apostle’s Creed, this time focusing on what it means when we confess that we believe in the forgiveness of sins. Families with last names starting with G-K have the food table this weekend.

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

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 16/17: We Believe in: The Resurrection and Eternal Life
September 23/24: We Believe in: The Holy Spirit

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
