Chalk Artist Coming!
What a wonderful week God has blessed us with! As I look around at the beauty of creation – the green grass, trees, blooming flowers, and blue skies – I am reminded that our God is an Artist. God delights in color, textures, contrasts, visual appeal, and engaging our senses in demonstrating his love and provision for us. We could say God is 3D, high def, multi-sensory, graphic, and dynamic in His communication and character!
How appropriate, then, that we devote a Sunday to engage our senses and receive a unique message from chalk artist, Randy Davis. Randy hails from Ottumwa, Iowa and is the founder of Drawing Closer Ministries, bringing the Word of God to others through teaching and chalk artistry. Randy was with us three years ago, but will return this Sunday to present a brand-new message and drawing. He will share this presentation at both services.
Traditional worship begins at 9:00 AM. Contemporary worship begins at 10:45 AM with a nursery provided. Busy Bags are available for small children. Sunday school for children is offered at 10:00 AM this Sunday for the last session before the summer break. The Discovery Class for inquirers meets at 10:05 in the adult Sunday school room as we wrap up the class. And, refreshments will be served for all between services in our Fellowship Hall.
It’s going to be a special Sunday at Grace Church. I hope that you and your loved ones will join us. Please also come prepared to give a generous free-will offering for Randy as his ministry is also his sole source of income as a family man. Use the attached invitational flyer to post, forward, or distribute to others. May the Spirit of God touch you and lift your spirit as we gather for worship and friendship this Sunday. Get ready to be inspired!
Sincerely in Christ,
Pastor Dave Van Netten
