Bible Study:   Wednesdays   6am – 7am    D121   John Lentz
In this group we study God’s Word and try to apply what it says to our lives.

Bible Study:  Wednesdays  7pm - 8:30pm     D222   Gustavo Durruty
We study a book of the Bible while seeking to incorporate the message of God into our daily lives. Our goal is to become more like our Savior. We pray to be leaders within our families, in the work place and in our community.

How has God Worked in Your Life?
One of the great ways we can encourage each other as Christ-followers is to tell of God’s work and goodness in our own lives. We’d love to know your story of God’s work and are inviting you to tell it. If you are willing to share, please visit the Grace website at www.GraceBaptist.org/share and tell us all about it. Submissions may be posted on the Grace website as an encouragement for others.
