Grace.Forward! – 8/22/19

Hey, Grace’rs,

Jan and I are celebrating 40 years of marriage on Sunday so this weekend we’ll look at what God has to say about marriage, and specifically, what God has to say about a small but emotionally-charged, highly misunderstood word: Submit.

If you missed the message from last week, Why Christianity? you can see it here.

This is also the weekend of our Big, Boffo, Night of Disney Music show.

Families with last names starting with S-Z have the food table this weekend.

Coming Up:
Worship Weekends: Christianity 101
August 24/25: What Does God Say About Marriage? (Jan and I are celebrating our 40th anniversary that weekend!)
August 31/September 1: What is the Church and Why it Matters to God… and to You!
September 7/8: Why Was the Bible Written?
September 14/15: How do I read the Bible?  

Tim’s Shoulder Surgery Update Update
I had my MRI on Monday and met with the Dr. on Tuesday. I’m having a clean up of the shoulder surgery on Monday and should be down about 2 days.



General Admission tickets ($5) will be available at Grace during weekend worship (Sat@5pm, Sun@8:45 & 10:15).

With the recent tragedies in our country, we’re reminded once again of how important it is to know how to help save the life of a severely wounded person. The only thing more tragic than a death from bleeding… is a death that could have been prevented.

Stop the Bleed is a national awareness campaign and call-to-action, and our own Laura & Jason Wright are certified Stop the Bleed trainers. They will be teaching a Stop the Bleed class on Tuesday, August 27 @6 PM to train, equip, and empower bystanders to help in a bleeding emergency before professional help arrives

This class is open to the public, but you’ll need to register so we can be sure that there are enough materials for all. Sign up at the Info Table or at


A rite of passage program for Jr High girls and their moms, starting in September.
