We welcome all!

We invite you to worship with us this Sunday, NOVEMBER 17, at 9:00 am.

Our Pastor’s message this coming week is entitled ‘ ALWAYS A COST’

This Sunday, we will also enjoy the music of a choir of our young people!

After worship this sunday, we will have a FORUM ON THE TOPIC of Prayer. If unable to attend yesterday’s, you are welcome to participate in Part two. Handouts from the first session will be available ….

Youth looking for a possible local youth group are invited to participate in ours. IF YOU ARE A YOUTH ACTIVE IN A LOCAL GROUP......we will be looking for opportunities for youth of different local churches to come together as the year goes on....Prayerful best wishes to you and your church community!!

We will be receiving new members on NOVEMBER 17 and 24. However, if you are interested, please know that we receive members throughout the year.

If you have attended worship at Grace, you may have noticed that our Pastor gives each of his sermons a title. The purpose is to help each listener ( and to help him as well!) give a specific FOCUS to the day’s message. He usually centers his reflection upon the Gospel of the day and seeks to apply this passage to real life, everyday living. He welcomes feedback and questions about his messages. In fact, our Forums provide opportunities for that to take place!
