Grace Weekly | October 29, 2014
Scripture for the day: “But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” Romans 5:8
Grace Received: Last Sunday we talked about the Samaritan woman whom Jesus met at Jacob’s well in John 4. Jesus met us here just as he met her there, and some people indicated they “had their thirst quenched today.” Others who were followers of Jesus already said they knew that God was calling them to press some boundaries as they followed Him – and they were willing to go with Him across those boundaries. I LOVE IT when God speaks and His people are so responsive to His voice.
This Sunday the sermon will come from Acts 4:32-5:10 and we will celebrate some baptisms at the 11:00 service. Don’t miss it!!!!
Grace Shared: New to Grace? 2 things (1) Plan to stay for lunch with the pastors right after the 11:00 service this Sunday. Lunch will be held in the youth room. (2) We have a brand new Sunday School class starting this week at 11:00. It is a 4 week introduction to Grace and will held in room A-4. Come check it out after you attend the 9:30 worship service.
Matt Slight teaches our Jr. High boys Sunday School Class. They are starting the book “Every Young Man’s Battle.” He is looking for some men who would be willing to stop in the class for a couple minutes to bring a word of encouragement to the boys and the struggles that every man, young or old, faces. Contact Matt at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested.
Congratulations to Josh Etson who recently passed the bar exam and will be practicing law in Clarksville.
Grace Extended: Last Saturday afternoon was our annual Trunk or Treat outreach event. A huge THANK YOU to Pastor Rachelle, her team, and everyone who came to help. We had a great turnout! Thanks to Grace Riders Motorcycle Ministry for adding a new element to the event and providing hay rides. It’s fun when we serve together!
