Grace.Forward! – 6/6/2019

Hey, Grace’rs,
Last weekend was another one of those “I’m so honored to be a part of Grace” worship events.  Our Vocal Group, The Noise, led the all three services with a power-packed musical presentation of the Gospel.  (It was also another of those “you simply can’t miss Grace worship or you really miss something” services!  🙂 )
On Tuesday, one of their “tour” stops was a park in California with a big homeless population.  Unbeknownst to the group, the homeless had all been moved to shelters.  But when the group stopped off at 7-11 they met a large group of homeless folks and did a 40 minute concert for them.  
That’s bold, reckless grace in action.  That’s Community of Grace in action!
This weekend: We continue our Summer Series: Unlikely Heroes of the Bible. We turn to the story of Ruth, a subversive, scandalous story of the radical grace of God and what it means for you.  Families with last names starting with G-K are up for the food table.
Next Weekend:
Dads Matter! And we’re going to host a big, boffo celebration for dads—and all the men of Grace.  The service will include a special Father’s Day Jeopardy! competition, a cool video, a chance to honor dads, and great worship and communion.  
Saturday Night we’ll take that celebration further with FREE Root Beer Floats and water games after the service.

Father’s Day Root Beer Floats and Water Games Saturday, June 15 after Saturday at 5.
