The Lord continues to bless His work at Grace Church. THANK YOU for being a part of the Lord’s work. When people are connected and contributing to the overall work of the ministry, it is powerful! And I do mean powerful!!! With ENGAGE 2018 beginning tomorrow (ENGAGE FELLOWSHIP DINNER @ 5:45pm) I am overwhelmed with how you have responded. ENGAGE is a lot of work! But as someone has said, “Many hands make light work!” THANK YOU for doing your part! Many of you have brought in items for Operation Christmas Child, many are preparing food and many will be serving in our ENGAGE Kid Connection services. I know that I am missing some of you, so just take this message as a blanket “Thank you” from me, Jamin and Chuck! The Lord honors faithfulness, count on it!

Hebrews 6:10 For God is not unrighteous to forget your work and labor of love, which ye have shewed toward His name, in that ye have ministered to the saints, and do minister.

REMINDER: If you have not signed up for the meals that will be served at ENGAGE 2018, please go to and do so as soon as possible. You may also call the church office at 252-355-3500 and sign up. Invite your friends to dinner… they will love it!

Also, keep in mind that Tuesday, November 6 is ELECTION DAY. Please vote; let your voice be heard. As Christians, one way we represent the Lord and His church is by voting. A number of years ago the Lord convicted me about complaining about the political climate in our great nation. He convicted me about complaining, but not voting. GO VOTE… cast a vote that you believe honors the Lord. Early voting is still available… go today if possible! Remember, you can stand up for what you believe by voting. Silence is NOT an option. Be heard, VOTE!!!

Again, my heart is overflowing with anticipation for ENGAGE 2018! A good many of you are giving of your time and effort this weekend! I deeply appreciate it! Heaven rejoices when the church obeys the Great Commission given to us by Jesus! Thank you so much for making a difference for Christ sake!

Serving Jesus Together!
