NOVEMBER 2018

A Few Highlights from October

Believer's Baptism:  What an amazing God we serve!  We were excited to celebrate with eight people in our Grace family who took the step of publicly professing their faith in Jesus Christ through baptism!

Fall Frenzy: Fall Frenzy 2018 is over and what a phenomenal event it was!  A record crowd of nearly 3,000 people including many first time guests from our community flooded our campus on Friday, October 19th to experience the madness of the Frenzy.  Throughout the night there was something for everyone in the family.  Whether  food trucks, inflatables, a full-size video game truck, themed rooms, hay rides, laser tag or our brand new interactive live show, it was certainly three hours of non-stop fun.  Thank you to all who attended and invited friends and family as well as our "Frenzy Fanatics" who volunteered their time to make this a world class event.  We're so excited to see how God uses Fall Frenzy to reach people with the good news about Jesus.

Thanksgiving Stuffing Drive

November 3rd - 11th //  All Week

Many times we don't think about those who do not have the resources to enjoy a Thanksgiving dinner like we usually do. This year Grace will be holding a Thanksgiving Stuffing Drive to collect Boxed Stuffing Mix for the Light of Life Thanksgiving baskets that will be distributed to those who may not otherwise have the opportunity to have a Thanksgiving dinner.

Drop off your Boxed Stuffing Mix in the Connect Area between Saturday, November 3rd and Sunday, November 11. Our goal is to provide 2600 boxes of stuffing! Thanks for helping feed those in need!

Email cindy@mygcc.org if you have any questions.
