New Year Prayer Service
Join us on the first Sunday of the year as we start off the new year in a service focused on prayer and reflection.
Christmas Gift for Jesus
We hope you will consider making Jesus the center of your Christmas Celebration by participating in our Christmas Gift for Jesus offering. This year’s offering will go to support Compassion Network, American Educational Development in Sri Lanka, Real Options Clinic, and Iglesias del Oeste. You can learn more about each ministry below:
Compassion Network’s specialty is connecting volunteers and resources from 50+ local congregations with needs in the community. They depend on their network of willing volunteers to provide free services for over 29,000 requests a year. www.compassionnetwork.org
American Educational Development – Tim and Vanessa Ekno
Tim and Vanessa Ekno have a heart for serving people with leprosy in Sri Lanka. Without access to clean water and a reliable source of food, those with leprosy have great difficulty surviving. This year’s offering will help provide for the basic necessities of life by digging them a well for clean water and helping them plant a garden for food. Each livelihood project costs $1,500 and helps provide necessities for many, many years to come. Your generosity opens the door for an introduction to Jesus and how much He loves even those that society casts out. www.americaned.net.
Real Options Pregnancy Clinic
This ministry commits to equipping and empowering women and men to choose life for their unborn children through the love of Jesus. They are dedicated to the highest standard of medical care in a comforting, supportive, Christ-centered atmosphere. Thousands of women, men, students, and children rely on them each year. Your financial partnership enables us to provide all our medical, education, parenting & adoption support services free of charge without government funding. www.realoptions.net
Iglesias del Oeste – Jim and Annie Culp
Iglesias del Oeste is an organization dedicated to advance the Gospel through equipping leaders who form healthy churches to transform communities, nations and the world. They are a network of churches investing relationally in leaders and serving missionally throughout Latin America. Ministries of Iglesias del Oeste include Seminario del Oeste, Team Kairos, Movilización and Body and Soul, and currently work in more than 10 different countries. They are headquartered in Ensenada. This year’s offering will help provide the funding that Ben and Sara Culp need to expand the ministry to the Dominican Republic. It will cover moving costs, remodeling a home that has been donated to them, and living expenses. www.iglesiasdeloeste.com
Demonstrate Your Thankfulness This Season
Each holiday season, Grace Church anticipates and relies on a seasonal increase in contributions. It is through the donations of every individual and family in the congregation that we are able to carry on our work now and throughout the year. If you need a convenient way to make recurring contributions or plan to make an additional gift before the end of the year, we encourage you to check out our electronic giving options. As the pace of life speeds up around the holidays, you may find electronic giving a most welcome way to make contributions. To set up a recurring giving schedule, visit us online and locate the Online Giving button. Thank you for your generosity and support.
Christmas Eve Candlelight Service
Please join us for a traditional candlelight service as we remember the birth of Jesus. There will be beautiful Christmas music, the Christmas story, and a small present for each child.
Birthday Party for Jesus
This service is for adults and children alike, especially those young at heart. Come and enjoy birthday cupcakes, party hats, and your favorite Christmas carols as we host a birthday party for Jesus.
Sermon Series: In Everything Give Thanks
We live in a world where bad news always seems to be the headline of the day. The economy is crashing, war is right around the corner, and who knows how the election is going to turn out – and all of this is on top of our own personal struggles. With everything going on it can seem impossible to follow the teaching of St. Paul to Give Thanks In Everything. Join us during the month of November as we focus on God’s faithfulness and seek to cultivate an attitude of thankfulness.
Gather Together Dinners
Gather Together Dinners are a churchwide activity designed to build and strengthen relational connections through good meals and great conversations in peoples’ homes. They are a great opportunity to meet new people and to reconnect with those you don’t always get a chance to talk to. So whether you are brand new to Grace or been here for many years, we hope you sign up to be a part.
Operation Christmas Child
Sermon Series: Building Blocks of Life Change
Do you ever find yourself wishing that you were different? That you were more disciplined or more loving? Maybe less worried or less angry? You are not alone. Every person has something about themselves that they wish they could change. Join us for Pastor Josh's five-week series that focuses on how we can partner with God for the transformation of our character. With God's help you can change and become the person that He made you to be.
