Kids Night In - Parents Night Out: Close to 200 kids hung out at Grace on Friday, February 22 while their parents had much needed time out.  The kids had pizza, popcorn, watched movies and were even entertained by Joe Bruce.  Parents left with a sweet treat and conversation cards to help encourage them in their time out.

Brand New

Saturday and Sunday, March 30th-31st  //  All Weekend Services

All offerings and tithes received from the weekend of March 30th-31st will be directed towards building something Brand New here at Grace. We are just a few months away from moving the first shovels of dirt for phase 2.  We'll be adding 52,000 square feet of much needed space to support Kids, large group meetings, a larger auditorium and more elbow room in the foyer (yay!). Our twice annual Brand New weekends are a key part in financing this expansion project. Your continued generosity is encouraged and appreciated as we begin construction which, when completed, enables us to reach more people with the good news of Jesus Christ.
