Summer Adventure which runs THIS WEEK, June 27-July 1!

Our Dominican Republic GO Team Departs THIS THURSDAY, July 7!
Pray as they facilitate a Returning Hearts Celebration at a prison in the Dominican Republic. Pray with us that fathers would be reunited with their children. Both Alaska GO Teams depart this month as well on July 10 and 23. Pray for them as they share the gospel through park ministries to immigrant children and their families. The Czech Republic Team departs for the field on Monday, July 11. Pray as they travel and facilitate English Camps in the city of Cheb and have opportunities to share Christ’s love with Czech youth.


Communion Team Leads NEEDED!

Christ calls us to remember Him through Communion. And for this sacred time we have ongoing needs for volunteers to serve and prep communion each month, but we also need someone with leadership gifts to organize the team. If you’re interested in serving in this way, email the Worship Life Dept. at: hannah.ruffner@gracebaptist.org

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.

Outreach Focus for June:
The Gideon’s International and Global Hope International.

The Gideons is an association of laymen who volunteer to distribute Bibles to hotels, hospitals, schools and other institutions and offer their personal testimonies of their faith in Christ at any opportunity. Over 30 Grace members are associated with the Gideons, which distributes in over 70 languages and in 162 countries. Global Hope - JORDAN brings compassion and the Gospel to the people of Jordan and the Middle East in a wide variety of ways, representing Jesus in a critical corner of our world, and one that Jesus called home. Jamal, the director of Global Hope, has welcomed many teams from Grace who’ve come alongside this dynamic outreach ministry.
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.

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.
