A Note from PJ

Hi friend–

As I’ve reviewed what the Lord did in and through the Grace family the last year, there are so many examples of his faithfulness to work through people who are available to him! It was a great year of impact!

Here’s our mission: Exalting Jesus Christ by making disciples who:

  • LOVE Jesus
  • GROW with Others
  • SERVE the World

Focusing on that last one for a moment, we have a new web page that highlights many ways to make an impact…you can take a quick look here.  Here are just a couple examples of ways to use your gifts:

  • Usher at a worship service: Would you be willing to welcome people to our 10:30 service at Middleburg and help serve communion once a month? 10:30 is our busiest hour and greatest need. For more information contact Pastor Steve Harper at steve.harper@gracecma.org.
  • Serve in the local community: “Salt & Light” is a group at Grace that serves a different nonprofit each month, usually for 2-3 hours on a Saturday. Projects are open to anyone who desires to serve – all are welcome! By REGISTERING you will be notified each month of where we will be serving that month and can choose when you’ll participate. Click HERE for more information.

Those are just a few examples of ways to make an impact. You’ll find lots more on the Serve page.

I’m reminded of these words from Hebrews 13:16–“Don’t forget to do good and to share with those in need. These are the sacrifices that please God.” May we continue to please him by the way we serve others in his name.

Grateful for you!

Jonathan
