Worshipping With Christ Church (and a little more)

Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand (Isaiah 41.10)

This Sunday:
- We will worship with Christ Church, and Pastor Jeff will be preaching from Mark 11.1-11
- We will eat together after the service; please sign-up to bring food (remember that we will have about 50 extra folks): http://www.perfectpotluck.com/meals.php?t=FLLS9160&v=bba63abce2
- Please come at 9:45am for 15 minutes of pre-service prayer.

Heads-up:
- We need people to please sign-up for post-serivce snacks in the coming weeks: http://www.takethemameal.com/meals.php?t=LXLV6348
- We will have another 4-week membership class starting Sunday, 7 September at 9:15am.  Attending this does not obligate you to become a member of Grace and Peace, but it is required prior to being received into committed membership.  Please contact Ralph if you would like to attend: calcasieukid89@gmail.com

Thank you:
- Although I'm still on study-leave and vacation, I want to thank so many of you who have/are praying for both rest and a productive time (both are occurring).

New Member's Class

Grace and Peace will be having another 4-week membership class starting Sunday, 7 September (during the Sunday School hour at 9:15am). Coming to this class is a great way to learn about membership, to know Pastor Jon and his vision for Grace and Peace better, as well as what expectations of membership at Grace and Peace are. It's required to be received into membership, but coming does not in any way obligate you to become a member. If you are interested in attending, please connect with Ralph at calcasieukid89@gmail.com

Katie Capelli's Mother

Please be in prayer for our good friend and sister Katie Capelli.  Her mother recently had emergency surgery and is in a difficult place.  You can read more and contribute to help by clicking the link below.  This is from Katie: If you find it in your heart to give, I would be extremely greatful.

Just a reminder that this is (SADLY!) the last Sunday our dear sister, Frances Swink, will be with us before she moves back to South Carolina.

Let's keep her and her return down South in our prayers.
