This is one of the best weekends of the year. Not only do we get an extra hour of sleep, we get to celebrate God’s faithfulness to us individually and as a congregation. We will together bring forward our commitments for the 2019 mission and ministry of GRACE Church.
It is so humbling to watch God at work in you – as you bring your commitment cards down and place them in the baskets. The act of making our commitments is such a tangible expression of our unity and our shared commitment to Jesus and his work in our church.
I continue to be grateful for your generosity and all that we get to do together because of your giving. I am praying that our giving will continue to grow as we live into our exciting future – for the next generation, for the city of Bethlehem, for men and women and boys and girls to find and follow Jesus. I challenge you to prayerfully consider increasing your giving and investment in God’s work at GRACE.
Sunday, I will be continue in our 40 days series. God made us to serve him and to use all that he has given us to glorify Him. As a part of our service, you will hear multiple witnesses in a powerful video. We were made for GRACE. Made to receive it and live it together and share it with the world. We will hear from the heart of our members how God’s GRACE and GRACE Church have changed their lives and challenged them to follow Jesus and to be a part of a vibrant church family that shares God’s GRACE with the world. You don’t want to miss it.

So much excitement in this season – We were indeed MADE FOR GRACE.
Don’t forget to turn your clocks back and enjoy that extra hour of sleep.
