Grace.Forward! – 7/18/2019

Hey, Grace’rs,

We have almost 90 kids in our Musical Theatre Camp this week! They will be performing their show Friday@6 pm. Free! If you’re looking for a great program, and want a chance to see the good work we’re doing together with our kids, come on out and enjoy it.

This weekend we turn our attention to one of the most unlikely of heroes in the Bible—a thief, hanging on a cross next to Jesus. Families with last names starting with L-R have the food table this weekend.

Saturday night: The Kids from Musical Theatre Camp will perform a 7 minute piece from their show during the service. Ice cream after worship!

If you missed last weekend’s message on Paul the Terrorist, you can view it here.
