February 14: Ash Wednesday Service
Begin the Lenten season with this special but informal service beginning at 6:00 PM in our sanctuary. Lent is a season of penitence, prayer, and identification with the sufferings of Jesus Christ. Pastor Dave will bring the message as we find true life in denying self, taking up our cross, and following Jesus. The children and youth of our mid-week ministries will join us; parents are invited too. May your attendance at this service begin your sacred journey with Jesus during the season of Lent and beyond.
February 10: Valentines Dinner & Movie Night
Couples, singles, and families are invited to a Valentines’ Dinner & Movie Night to be held Saturday, February 10 here at Grace Church. We’ll begin at 5:30 PM with welcome and check-in. Then, a delicious supper will be served at 6:00 PM in our Fellowship Hall, followed by the showing of the movie, “Facing the Giants,” in our sanctuary. Dessert and door prizes will follow the presentation. Donations to help offset the cost of the meal will be received. Free child care with a snack for the children is also provided (parents may wish to have their children eat a full supper before coming).
