A Note from PJ

Hi friend–

A newer person at Grace might wonder why our church family carves out time to talk about global outreach. Simply put, we see God’s heart for “all people everywhere” from the beginning to the end of the Bible. And, the example of Jesus confirms that: “Jesus went through all the towns and villages, teaching in their synagogues, proclaiming the good news of the kingdom and healing every disease and sickness. When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them…” (Matthew 9:35-36).

If we have a heart like his, our response to the needs of others will be compassion, too. We will desire to meet the spiritual and physical needs of people who matter so much to him.

That’s why I’d love to have you join us for our GO Week Conference these coming days!!

You may have heard about the awakening that’s been taking place at Asbury University in Kentucky. I have friends who live in that area and have told me about the genuine and powerful work that the Lord is doing through young people. They say there is a gentle and genuine sense of the presence of the Lord. God is at work. He has often used a generation of young people to stir a broader movement, and I’m grateful that our Young Adults group is hosting a worship night at Global Grounds tomorrow (Saturday) at 7pm. They’re inviting anyone who would like to join them, no matter your age. Childcare is available; see details here.

May the heart of Jesus become reflected in each of us more and more. I’m grateful for him…and you.
