Scripture of the Day: “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ he is a new creation. The old has gone, the new has come! All this is from God, who reconciled us us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation: that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting men’s sins against them. And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation. We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ’s behalf, be reconciled to God. God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.” II Corinthians 5:17-21
Grace Shared: Last Saturday Cindy & Rachel Coday and crew organized and hosted our first ever “Princess Party” for girls ages 2-2nd grade. Around 50 little girls dressed up, played games, had fun, but more importantly received a powerful message about their beauty and identity in Christ: “I am a daughter of royal birth. My Father is King of heaven and earth. My spirit was born in the courts on high. A child beloved, a princes am I.” They celebrated feminine beauty and the blessing of being daughters of the King of Kings. Thanks to all who helped make this day a very special one for our little princesses!
Grace Extended: The primary reason for the upcoming remodel of the sanctuary is to maximize our space for all aspects of our life together: grace received, grace shared, and grace extended. It’s not just for us, but for those who are not yet with us, that we are striving for a better stewardship of our space. With last week’s offering of over $8,000 that brings our total received so far to $34,419 which is about 1/2 way to our goal. We are making progress! Your leadership at Grace is committed to completing this project debt free so will continue to encourage everyone to give sacrificially and generously until we have what is needed. Great days ahead!
