I wanted to send out a little note about some of the upcoming plans at Grace & Peace.
Originally I had planned to start a new series in the book of Hebrews this week. After some more thinking on the issue, we are mixing things up a bit. Starting this Sunday, I’ll be preaching five weeks on the DNA of our church family. After that, Robbie will preach from one of the Psalms at the end of the March. This will mean that we will start Hebrews the week after Easter. Tied to our DNA series, we will be having an all church meeting on the 17th of March right after worship.
Worship with Fourth Pres:
We are happy to have 2 more scheduled joint worship services with our host church. This coming Sunday,(Feb 10th) we will welcome Fourth to our 6pm service, and then on March 10th we will not have our regular service and instead will gathering with Fourth at 11am.
Starting a Fourth Missional Community:
We are committed to starting new missional communities because more people(Christians and non-Christians) need more opportunities to see the Gospel fleshed out in their daily lives. To move forward we will need a core group of people willing to see this happen. Please pray with the elders for the need leadership, for a host and for a group of committed people willing to make this a reality.
Finally, we are talking with Fourth Pres. about needed upgrades to their facilities. Rather than just telling them what needs to be done, we are going to partner with them in the repairs. We are tentatively planning to have a work week, where we will do some painting and repair or replace the flooring in the chapel, nursery and kitchenette. We are shooting for the week of March 10th, but this has yet to be finalized. The more people available to help the better.
