CONGREGATION MEETING-MARCH 11
On March 11 following the 10 AM service, we are having a pot luck dinner followed by a very important congregational meeting. In addition to the normal business and reports, we need to discuss what direction to take in the transition to new pastor following Pastor Bode’s retirement. We will also discuss the future of Grace considering declining attendance and income. Please make every effort to attend as some important decisions must be made.
Can you believe it's time to think about our annual Easter Egg Hunt and children's service?
Empty eggs will be out at the beginning of March to take home and be "de-taped". Boxes for candy and new empty eggs will also be in the back of the church.
Tuesday, March 27th, Egg stuffing in the Fellowship Hall. Pizza will be provided
Saturday, March 31, Easter Egg Hunt beginning in the church at 10 a.m. Hunt will follow after a brief children's service in the church.
NEW BIBLE STUDY
What’s happening here is a new Bible study. It’s going down on Sunday mornings at 11:15. The teacher of the class is the Holy Spirit with facilitation by Art Gundell. If you feel you can’t tell which side of the Bible is the front, that is just fine, you are welcome to join this study. If you have a personal Bible bring it and pencil, otherwise those can be provided. We meet until 12:15 – 30 as a time limit, followed by a pot luck or fellowship at a restaurant each Sunday.
A Bible Study Opportunity
Women's Saturday morning Bible Study is at 9:00 a.m. The study is entitled “Mirror, Mirror; Reflections on God's Word”. What do you see in the mirror? Do you like the reflection? Many of us don't, but perhaps that's because we don't see ourselves the way God does—as His dear children. The eight lessons in “Mirror, Mirror” encourage you to dig into Scripture, ask you to make personal application of God's Word to your own life, and help you see yourself as He sees you: His beloved, redeemed daughter. We hope you will join us.
New Film: "THE LONGEST STRAW"
After two years of production, Samantha, daughter of Pastor and Anne Bode has finished her film documentary “The Longest Straw”. It has been submitted to a number of film festivals, one of which is located in our area this fall. Simply put, this film “ draws a connection between the water that supports a city (in this case Los Angeles) and that water’s source.” Learn more on Face Book https://www.facebook.com/pg/thelongeststraw/about/?ref=pa ge_internal
