Grace.Forward! – 1/24/2019

Hey, Grace’rs,


I have learned to be content with whatever I have. I know what it is to have little, and I know what it is to have plenty. In any and all circumstances I have learned the secret of being well-fed and of going hungry, of having plenty and of being in need. I can do all things through him who strengthens me. —The Apostle Paul
Philippians 4:11-13

This weekend: We wrap up our series: God, Money, and the Sexes. This weekend we look at how Running on Empty can lead to using money in all the wrong ways. Families with last names starting with S-Z have the food table this weekend.

Our After Saturday@5 Dinner is back:  Only $2 per person/$5 per family.  Take that all you fast food value meals!

Saturday, Feb 2: Souper Bowl Meal. Bring your favorite soup to share and/or your appetite. Vote on your favorite soup with a donation to Feed By Starving Children.
