- 100 in Sunday School
- Pot Luck Lunch
- Testimonies and Rejoicing in All that God has Done
Next Sunday our church will gather to worship in praise and thanksgiving for what God has done thus far in our relocation to these grounds and renovation of these facilities for His glory. We now have full access and complete control in working together to make this location and space everything that God wants. GOD HAS BROUGHT US HERE. When Israel crossed the Jordan River to occupy the land God promised to give them, Joshua said:
“Consecrate yourselves, for tomorrow the Lord will do wonders among you.” (Joshua 3:5)
God has done mighty things providing us with wonder after wonder to bring us to this point in our journey. Next Sunday we will CONSECRATE ourselves claiming every miracle God has performed along the way. I know the entire morning will be a great day to remember.
Next Sunday will KICK OFF our fall Sunday School emphasis to increase attendance and grow our Bible Study ministry. We are asking God to bring 100 people to study His word together. We have averaged over 80 in attendance throughout the last 8 weeks. We are so close to reaching our 100-mile marker. Determine now to make a fresh beginning in Sunday School if you have not been attending recently. If you are a regular part of a Sunday School class, ask someone new to join you next week.
Pray that God will give us a great day of fellowship and conversation centered in the Word of God.
We will LAUNCH our final assault to complete the “ONE MILE FOR GOD’S GLORY” Capital Campaign next Sunday morning. God has provided funds in excess of $120,000 toward our overall goal of $150,000 by the end of the year. With regular contributions coming in over the last 21 months at an average or $5,200 per month, we have calculated that $20,000 will be needed over-and-above the regular gifts from those who have pledged and those who have made contributions outside of pledges. This over-and-above offering amounts to $200 from all of us who have given something toward reaching the goal thus far. WE CAN DO THIS. The $150,000 goal is within our reach. REMEMBER, once we achieve the $150,000-mile marker, our benefactor Mr. Jim Walters promises to match our donations which will instantly become $300,000 for GOD’S GLORY. Special Offering Envelopes will be available for you to use when making your $200 over-and-above offering.
POT LUCK LUNCH will be provided in the lower building (Building #1) in order for you to visualize how
God might lead us to make the new space usable in the ministry of our church. We will pray together for God to reveal His plan of action. We will hear from our Benefactor Mr. Walters and our Architect, Mr. Steven Hill. We will show you where the new 300 seat Worship Center will be located. You will see where our Toddlers and Bed Babies will be. We will celebrate new expanded space to house our Children’s Bible Study, Children’s Worship and Ministry space. EXCITING AND INSPIRING will be two words that describe next week’s experience at Grace.
INVITE SOMEONE TO JOIN YOU.
