ENGAGE 2023 is almost here. Thank you for praying, giving and sharing in FAITH PROMISE MISSIONS at Grace Church! Here are few great things about ENGAGE:

1) First of all, our speaker Rick Via is abundantly qualified to challenge us in the area of missions. Rick has been a pastor. He knows what it means to support missionaries from the church side. He’s also been an evangelist. He has the heart of a soul winner. He brings his burden for souls with him to us. He has logged literally thousands of miles to carry the Gospel to the nations. As a result, Rick is a church planter! He’s seen God establish churches as a result of his mission efforts. If there is a more qualified speaker for ENGAGE I do not know them. Rick Via is God’s man for this hour in the life of Grace Church.

2) Secondly, Our ENGAGE CHILDREN’S TRACK makes this conference unique. Can we question Chuck and Judy Barber’s love and passion for the Lord and our children? Not at all… your children will be well cared for. You can count on that! As our AWANA motto says, “Kids matter to God.”

3) Lastly, you will hear firsthand reports regarding our missions giving. Reports mean responsibility. I’m so thankful for our team of missionaries! They will share their hearts with us. They may need to be encouraged. That’s where we come in! We may need to be encouraged as we fellowship, pray and give to our missionaries. All of this and more will happen this weekend at Grace Church. Make a new friend this weekend… meet a missionary!

God bless you! Make sure you are signed up for Friday’s dinner at 5:45pm and for Saturday’s lunch at 12:30pm in our Fellowship Hall. Also, encourage others to bring their children to the conference. Childcare is provided for every ENGAGE meeting.

Together is better!
