Grace Presbyterian Church longs to make the amazing grace of the good news of the gospel known. As we look at the brokenness around us, in our relationships, work, world, and even our own hearts, we oftentimes are left asking, Who will make this right…who can make me right? The good news is that though we are unable to fix, mend, and heal, God is both able and willing. GPC is not a place of people who have it together, but rather a place of those who are seeking God’s amazing grace.
Wherever you find yourself in this journey, we will walk with you as God transforms us together and magnifies his grace in and through us.
Pastor Randy Edwards
In preparation for Easter, a group will be gathering at 6:30pm on Thursday evenings for six weeks at the Edwards’ home for a soup dinner and discussion on the book, How Dante Can Save Your Life by Rod Dreher. Our first gathering will be on February 11. If you are interested in participating, please let Pastor Randy know.
There are three tracks you can follow.
- The first is to simply read along with Dreher’s book.
- If the book is not your bag, you may want to listen to the Great Courses audio course, Dante’s Divine Comedy.
- The third track would be reading Dante’s Divine Comedy instead.
Each of the tracks can be purchased through GPC’s e-store HERE. And you will need to get started ASAP in order to keep up. Here is a link to the Dining with Dante Reading Guide, so that you may see our assignments and questions. In addition, if you’re not able to join us Thursday but would like to follow along, please do!
Joel’s annual blood drive is scheduled for February 27, 2016 from 9am to 1pm in the church building fellowship hall. You may sign up online or speak with Brea McClain.
Because temperatures are not expected to rise above freezing before 11am and because of expected hazardous road conditions, Sunday’s church services are cancelled. Stay warm and safe.
A lot is going on over the next couple of weeks, and you don’t want to miss out on what’s going on!
Beginning September 13, we have several programs starting up. Firstly, we begin our Sunday Morning Grow in Grace study: Walking with Bunyan through Pilgrim’s Progress. After an introductory week, our reader’s theater troop, led by Josh Iley, will present a reader’s theater adaptation of the content for that week’s lesson followed by application and discussion led by Larry Clagett. This gathering is for the entire family. Our reader’s theater will be based on The Dangerous Journey a children’s book adaptation of Pilgrim’s Progress.
In addition, on Sunday evenings our children’s and youth ministry gatherings begin. Sunday Night Fellowship continues weekly from 6:00-7:30pm. In addition, there are several Home Fellowship Groups which will be launching during that time. Speak with Pastor Randy if you have questions.
The following weekend Grace House Preschool will be holding their Consignment Sale on September 18-19. There are opportunities to consign and help through the week and weekend. Speak with Lori Dell’Arena if you have questions.
Lastly, the weekend concludes with a return to a fall favorite, GPC’s Fall Barbecue on September 20 from 6-8pm. A-M brings a side dish and N-Z bring a dessert. The church will provide buns, paper products, and drinks. Hope to see you there!
