OCTOBER 2018

A Few Highlights from September

Celebration and Kids Launch Weekend:  In September, we paused to reflect on the past, present, and future of Grace Community Church and celebrated paying off our mortgage! We are giving God the glory for what He has done and continues to do in and through those who call Grace their home. Grace Kids launched with an action packed weekend where the hallways were green like the gridiron, the cool weather was upon us, and the kids were pumped! We had an amazing Launch weekend with many new faces as kids were encouraged to bring a friend! 

KRUE Fall Kickoff: Over one hundred students joined us at FKO this past month as we danced to live music, did some sumo wrestling, and had an amazing time worshiping God! We spoke to our students of how God is going to use them to change the world. As this school year begins, our challenge is for students to get real in their relationship with Jesus like never before. God is at work in our students!

Grace Space: We had an awesome September Grace Space!  Thirty children were able to come to Grace and have fun with Living Treasures Animals, while their parents had a much needed break.  Over 30 volunteers helped make Grace Space happen and we are so thankful for all that were involved to bless these families! We hope you can join us for our next Grace Space on December 15th.

Believer's Baptism

Saturday and Sunday, October 13th-14th  //  All Weekend Services

Whether you are a new believer or have just never taken the step of professing your faith in Jesus through baptism, we would love to celebrate Believer's Baptism with you on October 13th-14th, at any of the three weekend services. Remember, Believers Baptism doesn't make you a believer, it shows you already believe!

If you have accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and personal Savior, are a student (in 5th grade or above) or adult, and are ready to take this step of obedience, please SIGN UP HERE before October 10th.  Someone will contact you with additional information the week prior to the Baptism.

Please let emily@mygcc.org know if you have any questions.

Escape - High School Retreat

You’ve probably had a lot of your plate this year. It’s easy to get stressed and lose focus on what’s most important.

Campfires, laser tag, rock climbing, live worship, and deep conversations are only a few of the things you can expect at ESCAPE this year!
