20 YEARS of GRACE

Hello everyone, this weekend is packed full of celebration!  Grace Fellowship Church is 20 years old this year so come out and join in the fun and fellowship.  On Saturday morning there will be a breakfast served at the church at 9:00am, come and fill your belly, we haven't killed a fatted calf but I think there will be bacon.  Saturday night at 7:00 we'll worship the Lord RIOT style.  Kim Butler, Grace's first youth pastor, will is coming home to lead us in worship, accompanied by Wrapped in Rona.  Kim will also be leading worship on Sunday at 10:00am and our guest speaker will be Pastor Sheldon Chant of Mighty Fortress of God Church in Louisburg.
Sheldon will return Sunday evening with his band to lead us in worship and word again at 6:30pm.  It's a jam packed weekend, come out and be blessed by Jesus as we celebrate his work through twenty years as Grace Fellowship Church.

This week on Thursday and Friday we're also hosting the Canadian Presbytery of the ARP.  Please keep that in prayer as the leaders of the various churches seek the Lord for their congregations.  Also Thursday night at 7:00 there will be a Congregational Communion Service to give opportunity for people to meet with the presbytery and here one of them speak.

Operation Christmas Child has started again this year, please pick up your boxes at the church and return them filled by Nov. 20th.  This is a great way to get in the Christmas spirit early and a great way for us to do something for someone else.  It's amazing the impact something that can seem so insignificant to us can have on a child.  Help spread Jesus love this year around the world.

And don't forget to tell some young people about HUGE 2011
The October 20th registration has been extended to Oct. 24th, and if you just show up on Oct. 28th we'll still let you join in the fun... that's what Jesus would do. 

Be Blessed.

Coffee House and Communion

Hello everyone, this Friday evening we will have a Coffee House at Grace from 7:00-9:00pm.  It is to help support Dave MacIntyre's trip to YWAM  Pursuits New Zealand.  He is there doing the first phase of a Discipleship Training School.  Phase 2 is an outreach mission where he will be going out to share the gospel with surfers.  New Zealand is one of the top surfing destinations in the world, people come from far and wide to the beaches there.  Surfers need Jesus too, so Dave will get to go out and share his faith with lots of people.  Please come out and hear the talent and support Dave.
