August 2019

A few highlights from July

Believer's Baptism: We are so excited for life change that is happening at Grace as we celebrate the 57 people who put their faith on display by taking part in multiple baptism services. 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!

Kenya Mission Trip: Thank you for your prayers and financial gifts for the Kenya Mission Trip.  Hearts were blessed and lives were changed as God worked in Kenya. We held a birthday party for the Sponsored kids, shared testimonies, assisted in medical clinics, taught in classrooms, and celebrated 10 years of God's blessings through our partnership with the communities of Kandaria and Katito.  We continue to give God the glory for all that is being done in Kenya.

Florida Mission Trip: Thank you for partnering with our team through prayers and financial gifts for the Florida Mission Trip. We held a children's day camp, participated in youth activities, led women's Bible study and activities, worked on construction projects, took the women to a Lifeway Women's Conference, and held a huge Community Outreach event with inflatables, games, and themed rooms and activities.  We thank God for this opportunity to build relationships and invest in the lives of the dear families of Wahneta.

Kids to KRUE: Grace Kids and KRUE (student ministry) had the first KidsToKrue event for students transitioning from 6th grade to 7th grade. It was a wonderful evening of vision casting, meeting small group leaders, and connecting with parents!

House of Hope Fundraiser & CTCC Fireworks: The parking lot was overflowing with folks from Grace and the overall community enjoying fellowship, tailgating and grilling. Over $1,400 was raised in food sales and sent directly to the House of Hope Orphanage Food Program in Kenya! It was a beautiful evening with a perfect view of CTCC fireworks!
