Hey church! Ready for a beautiful weekend? A few updates…
First, can you pray for our staff and leadership? We’ll be on a retreat today, bonding and stuff, and we’re in a season of seeking guidance from God about our next few years of ministry. I can tell you that we have high hopes, big dreams, and we’re going to be taking some risks in faith as we watch God work in, around, and through Grace Hills!
This weekend, I’m wrapping up our InsideOut series by talking about the purpose of our pain and how God wants to use our experiences – good, bad, and ugly – to help us serve others. And, we’re BAPTIZING this weekend! So if you’re ready or interested, contact me today at 479-426-6575 or email@example.com.
OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD – LAST SUNDAY TO BRING
This is officially the last weekend to bring stuff for Operation Christmas Child, so check this link if you’d like to know what we’re collecting: https://gracehillschurch.com/get-involved-operation-christmas-child/
HELP A FAMILY FOR THANKSGIVING
Each year, we support a couple dozen families who are having a difficult holiday season by providing them with a full Thanksgiving meal. To be a part, pick up a shopping bag in the lobby, which contains a shopping list, add a small gift card, and return it filled on Sunday, November 22.
New to Grace Hills? Join us for our Newcomers Lunch at Dink’s BBQ in Bentonville on Sunday, November 15. Our Pastors will share the story, the vision, and the values of Grace Hills and answer questions about what it means to become a member. And lunch is on us! Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or to RSVP (optional).
PRAY FOR OUR HONDURAS TEAM
Six days from today, nearly a dozen Grace Hills members will embark on a journey to Honduras to give medical care, help with home-building, and present the Good News about Jesus to one of the planet’s poorest nations. Pray for safety, but even more, pray for open doors to share God’s love.
On November 22, we’ll be dedicating the weekend offering to some special projects. Our goal is to raise $25,000 on a single Sunday to help our local elementary school, send some people to Honduras, and build our Future Fund to help us move forward when we leave the movie theater someday. If you prefer to give online, you can do so anytime by visiting gracehillschurch.com/give. Please pray about how God would have you to invest beyond your normal offering to this special fund.
I love you guys! And I love what God is doing through you!
