Bible Study:  Wednesdays  7pm - 8:30pm     D218   Jordan Rosen or Ken Provasi
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.  

Bible Study:  Fridays  6pm-7pm    D223      Joaquin Borja
We are studying the book of Mark, unleashing the Word of God one verse at a time. Our desire is to grow spiritually and win souls for the Kingdom of God.

to Learn More!
Lucio and Cristina Stanisci in Rome, Italy

Lucio is a graduate of The Master’s Seminary and has returned to his homeland, Italy, to pastor a church in Perugia. Bible-teaching evangelical churches are rare in Italy, and the team that is formed around the Staniscis are well-placed to make a significant impact for the gospel. Pray that the Word of God would spread rapidly through their church, expository preaching, leadership development, and church planting! 
Converge (Baptist General Conference)  
Grace is able to join with other like-minded churches to make an impact for Christ on regional, national and international levels through our denominational involvement. Converge/BGC has become one of the most effective church planting movements in the nation, and also partners with churches around the world to see God’s Kingdom spread among every tribe and tongue and people and nation.

Because the Term “Missionary” Can Create a Security Risk in Certain ...
parts of the world, we have decided to refer to all our International Workers, wherever they may serve, with titles that do not create problems for some of them. Long-term missionaries are now our “Global Partners,” and the teams we send to serve alongside them are “Global Outreach Teams” or GO Teams. Using this terminology, especially in electronic and written communication, but also in our conversations, will help us avoid putting our friends at unnecessary risk. Thanks for your help as we make this change.
