Dear Grace Family,

These announcements and prayer requests are being sent out every Thursday to inform us of what is happening in and the needs of our church.  If you have an announcement or prayer request that you want to be included in next week’s email, please send it to by Tuesday night. 

Grace and peace,

Announcements for the week of 06/17/24

Join Us for Sunday Worship, June 23 at 10:00 AM

Pastor Al will be preaching from Philemon.  “Seeing God in Broken Places:  How Wonder Creates Justice”  

Spiritual Exercise

If you are reading The Gift of Wonder, please read/review chapters 12 (Stay Close to the Cracks) and 13 (Come to the Table).

  • Describe a time when you were discriminated against. How did it feel? How did you react?

  • Describe a time when you yourself discriminated against someone. What was happening in you? Where do you think it came from?

Love Feast, June 30

Please plan on staying next Sunday for lunch.  Not only will we get a chance to hang out and fellowship over a meal, we will also be hearing from the team about their upcoming INFEMIT Colombia trip.

This Is Us Quilt

This is the last Sunday that you’ll be able to choose a crumb at church.  It has been a joy to see the various squares and words people have chosen.  Looking forward to what it will look like assembled!  Many thanks!  - Irene Fong

Forward Your Photos

Over the past few months, we have engaged in some spiritual exercises.  3 of our spiritual exercises involved bringing in pictures:

  1. Bring a photo of yourself from your childhood  (what brought you joy at this age?)

  2. Bring a picture of something in your life that you created or had a part in creating it.

  3. Bring a picture of a place out in creation where you recently experienced wonder.

We would like to collect all your beautiful photos and create a collage to share with the entire congregation.

Please note:  It is not necessary that you provide all 3 photos.

If you want your photo(s) included, please forward them to by Sunday, June 23.  If you have any questions, contact Caroline.

Stott-Bediako Forum on Transformation Revisited: Mission and Gospel Imagination, July 15-17, Rionegro, Colombia

We are excited that Pastor Al will be leading a group of us to go to Colombia to attend the forum.  As there will be expenses for the group, we invite the church to help with the travel costs.  You can contribute by giving online (Colombia Trip) or dropping a check in the offering box with the notation of “Colombia Trip” on the check.

If you have any questions, please contact Pastor Al. 

Youth Retreat, July 24 - July 27

Our youth will be going to Golden Valley Camp for their annual camp.  Registration forms have been distributed to the youth’s parents.  If you have any questions, please contact the youth staff.
