Grace Weekly | Jan. 3rd, 2013
Scripture for today: “Sing to the Lord a new song; sing to the Lord all the earth. Sing the Lord, praise his name; proclaim his salvation day after day. Declare his glory among the nations, his marvelous deeds among all peoples. For great is the Lord and most worthy of praise; he is to be feared above all gods.” Psalm 96:1-4
Grace Received: Congratulations to Mike and Nichole Novotny in the birth of their 8 lbs 14 oz, 21.5 in. linebacker, I mean baby boy, born just after 5 pm on Dec 31st. He joins brother Jacob and sister Jenna.
I received a great e-mail from Joe & Chrisy Slate this week. During family devotions their daughter Samantha (Sammy) accepted Jesus’ invitation to start following Him. The Slates will be with us Jan. 20 as they come back from Ft. Rucker to have the newest addition to their family (Jordan) dedicated.
This Sunday, Jan 6 is Epiphany. This is a significant day for us as the focus is on Christ as revelation to and Savior of the gentiles (which includes us). The scripture will be Matthew 2:1-12 if you want to give it a look before Sunday. Bring someone with you!
Grace Shared: The start of this new calendar year is a good time to join, host, or lead a grace shared group. There are lots of options! These disciple-making groups meet at Grace on Sunday mornings every week, 2x a month in homes all over Clarksville, and a few meet weekly at coffee shops. While the settings are all different the purpose is the same. It’s an investment in our own and others’ spiritual growth. Our goal at Grace is 100% participation and we’re sure to have a group that fits where you are in your walk with God. If you have any questions, want to join, host, or lead a group, contact Joe Voight: email@example.com
Grace Extended: Before we know it June 10-17 will be here and we’ll be sending another team to Nicaragua. There is still time to join the mission trip team. We will have a meeting after 11:00 service Sunday, Jan 13. Contact Charlotte Moore if you have questions. firstname.lastname@example.org
