February 2019

We're off to a great start in 2019!

Grace Space:  We had so much fun with our friends at our January Grace Space. It was our biggest Grace Space yet with 34 kids and 40 volunteers. We had an awesome time learning yoga, ice painting and building human snowmen!

Learn Together:  In January, nearly 120 women joined us as at Learn Together, our Bible study workshop. We enjoyed learning from several of our leaders about the different types of study techniques and how we could apply them to our personal study times. It was an amazing time of fellowship and learning and we are excited for all that God is doing here in our Women’s ministry.

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!
