Hello Grace Church!

Homecoming 2023 was a huge blessing! Pastor Russell and Loretta enjoyed the fellowship and the lunch. By the way, everything was great! We had a great crowd with a number of folks from our community joining us. We thank the Lord for His goodness and faithfulness as the Word of God was preached. There was plenty of food and desserts! The music and the singing were Christ honoring. I was blessed as I watched you fellowship with Russell and Loretta around the lunch tables. A friendly church is always a blessing to those that gather for worship. Everything was just right… the Lord was honored. What a great time of worship with God’s people. Everyone was blessed! Just yesterday we hosted the JH ROSE HS Football team for a pre-game meal. We had a great time with the players, coaches and staff. What a huge blessing!

Sunday Bible studies begin at 9:45AM with Worship beginning at 11:00AM. We also gather for Communion tomorrow. Please join us and invite a friend. Many people never receive an invitation to church, so they don’t go. Pray about it and make that call! You never know who might join you. The Lord uses our witness to bring people to Himself. I’m praying as you go! AWANA begins at 5:00PM tomorrow and our Adult classes on Marriage and Worship begin at 5:15PM. ENGAGE MISSIONS CONFERENCE information will be available tomorrow as well.

I want to encourage you to be faithful in reading your Bibles, praying, church attendance, sharing your faith and giving. Let’s wrap up 2023 on a strong noteI realize our economy is not the best but be faithful in your giving, and the Lord will honor your obedience. Trust Him; He will prove Himself faithful!

Love you all!

Mike and Cheryl <><
