MAY 2018

GRACE PROJECT GALA: If you missed the 2018 Grace Project Gala "Once Upon a Time," you missed an incredible night!  The third annual event provided an amazing opportunity to celebrate the success of the Grace Project as well as raise funds for the coming year.  Over 230 people came out to enjoy dinner and speed painting by SVSD Teacher George Williams, learn about new projects, and help raise over $60,000 through an entertaining evening of live auctions, silent auctions, and sponsorships. Thank you for providing opportunities, one student at a time. 

GRACE SPECIAL WARRIORS:  Some very special kids and amazing volunteers made our second annual Grace Special Warriors an event to remember!  Families with children with special needs from Grace and the community came together for a joy-filled, action-packed evening!  Kids raced obstacle courses created especially for them and enjoyed K-Love Radio, a sensory room, food trucks and more.  The event concluded with an on-stage awards ceremony with every child receiving a medal!

BELIEVER'S BAPTISM: Life change is happening at Grace!  Twenty-five people put their faith on display by taking part in Believer's Baptism this past weekend.  The church is so excited to see so many of our friends and family take the step of publicly professing their faith in Jesus Christ through baptism!

KRUE Marathon Project 

Saturday, May 5th - Sunday, May 6th  //  

Pittsburgh hosts an annual marathon for all types of runners and athletes.  As part of our KRUE Marathon Project, students in 7th-12th grade have the opportunity to serve Urban Impact in Pittsburgh and cheer on the runners. Join your friends and small group leaders on an awesome weekend that really makes you thankful you don’t run marathons…because boy is it tough!

Students will meet at Grace at 1:00pm on Saturday, May 5th. From here we will drive down to ACAC in Pittsburgh, where we will spend the night. Urban Impact will have opportunities for us to serve their ministry on Saturday evening and Sunday morning.

We will return to Grace on Sunday, May 6th in time for the 11:30am service. Students are encouraged to wear their Urban Impact t-shirts while we sit together for the service.
