Grace.Forward! – 3/28/2019

Hey, Grace’rs

This weekend we celebrate our 14th Anniversary as we get ready to follow Jesus out of the boat…onto the water…and make our commitments to the Grace.Forward project…jump-starting our bold reckless journey to year 15! I’ve been praying for you as God builds your faith capacity leading up to commitment God is stirring in you. It’s going to be an exciting weekend!

Because it’s a fifth weekend…everyone is invited to bring something for the big anniversary celebration!

After Saturday@5 meal: Soup, sandwiches and pasta salad. Just $2 per person/$5 per family!


Last week I wrote this: 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.

A picture is worth a thousand thanks!
