Welcome to Grace

May 26, 2024

NEW here?

Make every effort to live in peace with everyone and to be holy;
without holiness no one will see the Lord…

– Hebrews 12:14

A Note from Pastor Jonathan

Dear Friends,

I hope you’re already enjoying this holiday weekend!

I hope you have a memorable time with family or friends. We can thank the Lord for the many brave people who made the ultimate sacrifice for our nation so that we may continue to live in freedom.

Today we’re remembering the incredible sacrifice made by Jesus as we share communion during service. We’re also in our next message in the Connect series.

Want to stay current with Grace Church? Sign up for one of our ministry email lists! I was so impressed with the recent Global Outreach newsletter, with the different opportunities we have to connect to what God is doing globally.

Want something good to listen to?
Try one of our ministry podcasts on your next walk or car trip!

Whatever you’re experiencing or feeling today, may you know that God sees and loves you. Let us know if we can help you in any way! Here’s a wonderful reminder from this week’s Bible reading:

Give your burdens to the LORD, and he will take care of you. Psalm 55:22

– Pastor Jonathan Schaeffer
