Grace.Forward! – 1/31/2019

Hey, Grace’rs,


Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. In Christ, God has given us every spiritual blessing in heaven. In Christ, he chose us before the world was made. In his love he chose us to be his holy people—people without blame before him. And before the world was made, God decided to make us his own children through Jesus Christ. That was what he wanted and what pleased him. This brings praise to God because of his wonderful grace. God gave that grace to us freely, in Christ, the One he loves. (Ephesians 1:3-6)

This weekend: The Baptism of Jesus. Jesus is launched into his mission by a word of affirmation from his Heavenly Father—a word that will shape your life as well! Families with last names starting with A-F have the food table this weekend.

Our After Saturday@5 Dinner is back:  This weekend: Souper-Bowl Saturday. Bring your favorite food to share and/or your appetite. We will vote for the best soup by making a contribution, all of which will go to Feed My Starving Children.
