FEBRUARY 2018

We are off to a great start in 2018!

MoMENtum:  MoMENtum, our exciting NEW monthly Men's Connection launched on the second Monday of January. Over 130 guys took the risk not only to show up, but to meet each other and to hear Jimmy Woods, owner of Mission Mahi, share his story of struggle and redemption.  We'll continue to get together every month as guys of all ages come and enjoy some laughs, conversation, a speaker or two, and a place to unwind.  

GRACE SPACE: We had our first Grace Space respite program in January and it was amazing!  A group of nearly twenty children had a blast celebrating a New Year’s theme and ball drop with our team of committed volunteers while parents enjoyed several hours of time away together! 

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

MoMENtum Men's Connection 

Monday, February 12th  //  7:00pm - 8:30pm

All guys 18 and over, join us for what we're calling MoMENtum, our exciting NEW Monthly Men's Connection! On the second Monday evening of each month, guys of all ages will connect for some laughs, discussion, a speaker or two, a place to unwind, all with the goal of building authentic and transparent relationships. This will absolutely be something you'll want to be a part of, and a GREAT opportunity to invite friends to join you. 

Caution though...this AIN'T your Grandaddy's Men's Ministry! (Unless of course, he was the coolest Grandaddy ever, or he might even be involved ALREADY, and simply left you in the dust!)
