June 2019

A few highlights from May

Child Dedication: There is no higher calling for parents than to lead their children in the way they should go. We had the most amazing privilege to dedicate 21 children to the Lord at our Spring Child Dedication event! Grace is overjoyed to come alongside these families in their commitment to raise their children in a God-honoring manner!

Next Steps: In May, we were one again able to share the history and outlook of Grace Community Church at our Next Steps gathering and we are thrilled to have 23 new members who share our mission, values and vision.  Congratulations and welcome to the Grace family! 

MoMENtum Men's Getaway Weekend: At the end of May, 75 men joined us as we kept the MoMENtum going at beautiful Oglebay Resort and Conference Center. From the challenging messages, to authentic and transparent conversations, participating in activities and just hanging out together, lives were not only impacted, but dramatically changed as they took bold steps toward humbly becoming the men God created each of them to be. Not intended to be a one-time experience, the prayer is for guys to continue the MoMENtum movement at Grace and, through a growing relationship with Jesus, ultimately impact their families, the church, and the community.

Kids to KRUE

Sunday, July 7th

The years keep passing by and here you are, sending your child off to middle school. Grace Kids and KRUE (student ministry) want to walk along side you during this key transition. Not only are you preparing for new rhythms as a parent of a middle schooler, but your child's engagement at church will be changing, too. Your family is invited to join us on Sunday, July 7th from 6pm to 7:30pm as we share a meal together and celebrate your child's transition from Kids ministry, to student ministry. Learn more about our KRUE groups, meet some KRUE leaders and celebrate what God is doing in your rising middle schoolers life. Childcare will be available for younger siblings. Please be sure to indicate if you will need childcare at registration so that we can account for them as well for dinner.

Please REGISTER HERE before June 30th. If you have any questions, please contact darren@mygcc.org.
