Grace.Forward! – 3/21/2019

Hey, Grace’rs

Tomorrow (Friday) I’m having shoulder surgery. All prayers are appreciated!


If you missed worship this weekend you missed the big announcement: So far a handful of our leaders have turned in their pledges for Grace.Foward! and some cash toward their commitments…enough to enable us to send $4000 to a congregation in Rwanda to complete their church building. That’s Grace.Forward! I hope you will continue to pray about what God would have you do for this adventure and make your commitment March 30/31.


This weekend: We dive into the mystery of faith and how faith works and grows in our lives. Families with last names starting with S-Z have the food table this weekend.

Our After Saturday@5 Dinner menu this week: Sloppy Joes and Potato Salad! Just $2 per person/$5 per family!

If you didn’t have a chance to hear Pastor Kathleen’s message on God’s invitation to us to live grace through serving our neighbor, you can view the message here.
