Grace Weekly

New to Grace?

You are Invited to a Reception Right After Services!
If you’re new to Grace, fill out a Guest card from the pew and place it in the offering plate or the Welcome Cart in the Lobby. Also, please join us for a reception right after service so we can get to know you more and answer any questions you may have. The reception is located through the double doors to the left of the Worship Center stage. We look forward to meeting you!

Come for Prayer After Services

We are here for you and would love to pray with you! The Lord has commanded us to place our anxieties upon Him (Philippians 4:6-7) and together, bring one anothers' concerns before Him (James 5:16).  Our prayer partners will be waiting to help carry your burdens to the heart of God in prayer with you, right after service. Come on up to the front of the Worship Center, by the stage and someone will be there to meet you. It is our desire to help you trust God with your life's details, and not to feel alone.

GRACE OUTREACH

Won’t You Be My Neighbor?
A few weeks ago we gave out a card that listed ways for us to be intentional and involved this summer for the sake of the Gospel. We want to highlight one of those suggestions and encourage each Grace family to pursue having a meal with someone in our community who doesn’t know Christ. All throughout Christ’s ministry, we see Him eating and drinking with others, sharing Himself with those who did not truly know Him. Meals give us a chance to share life, hope, and truth with those around us. Let’s be faithful right where God has placed us to build relationships and spread Gospel hope!If you feel stuck in your evangelism or have a story to share with us, email: outreach@gracebaptist.org
