  1. SPRING EPIC COURSES
  2. We are thrilled to share that new EPIC courses are here and registration is open--courses start this Sunday, April 14 during the Equipping Hour at 11 a.m.

    Confronting Jesus: At one point in the Gospels, Jesus asks his followers, "Who do you say that the Son of Man is?" If you asked this questions to neighbor or a coworker you would get a variety of responses. In the Gospels, Jesus very next questions is, "But who do you say that I am?" This is the most important question any of us can ask ourselves or others. This course will help us explore the life of Jesus through the four Gospel books of the New Testament to gain a better understanding of who Jesus really is and how Jesus forms our life of faith. We will examine nine characteristics of Jesus to learn more about him and share his truth with others in a fresh way. For more information contact Ramon Gahona. Register HERE.

    Live Differently at Work: Do you ever wonder: Do I need to work in a non-profit or full-time ministry to do work pleasing to God? How do I live like Jesus and maintain my competitive edge in the workplace? How do I keep from feeling like life is slipping by? I feel like something is missing, but what? We’ll wrestle with all the above questions and more as we dive into God’s Word to discover His plan for our work. This will be a roll-up-your-sleeves, focused, eight-week sprint using books, podcasts, and other resources from current thought leaders to discover God’s plan for how we spend our time Monday–Friday. By the end of the course, our prayer is that we will recognize that one can glorify God in our jobs and work and commit to God’s plan for how we should work. In doing so, we’ll discover work that glorifies God and provides us a sense of purpose, discover where God has placed a calling on our lives, and utilize the spiritual practices learned through the class as a means to draw closer to God.

  3. COVENANT PARTNER COURSE
  4. The new Covenant Partner Course is our process for learning more about the key theological essentials of Grace, and the vision, the mission, and the strategy of Grace. The course is led by pastors, elders, deacons, and staff and it is our unique way of talking about membership in a congregation. During the course, you will be invited to explore if joining as a “Covenant Partner” is the right next step in your journey of faith in Jesus. Refreshments and drinks will be provided.

    The next course will take place on Sunday, April 21 at 11 a.m. Let us know you are coming by registering HERE.

GOOD NEWS OF THE WEEK

We celebrate the things that we have offered to God that are bearing fruit-- We celebrate what God is doing!

On April 7, Grace held an All-Adult Equipping Hour class in Massey-Tucker Fellowship Hall to start the Spring. We explored how, as Christians, we live differently by being actively engaged in our Church community where we find support, spiritual guidance, and fellowship while giving back our time, talent, treasures, relationships, and truth for God's glory. The time together following worship was designed to help equip and engage covenant partners in what it means to be an ECO Presbyterian Church, be part of the larger church body, and what it means to be a covenant partner here at Grace.

If you were not able to be a part of the presentation on Sunday, you may watch it HERE.
