We are already 4 weeks into the new year and so much is changing in our midst. It's been a dynamic start to our year as the nation embarks upon a new chapter of leadership. With the shift in governance, many of us have had the opportunity to think more deeply about the issues that matter most to us and how our faith shapes our understanding of the world around us. In many ways, this is a powerful moment for our faith communities to recommit ourselves to the Gospel message and to seek ways to serve the common good. It is a time to come together across our differences and work together to build a more compassionate, more caring community.
How might this look for Grace Church?
On January 22, we held our annual meeting and I outlined a few key goals for the new year. These included nurturing a vibrant practice of prayer, creating a vision for the coming years, and enriching Christian formation for youth and adults. As I look toward the months ahead, I am excited about seeking God's guidance with you.
In this newsletter, you will find important information about opportunities to worship, grow, and serve. I encourage you to get
involved in a new way. Pray about how God may be leading you to live out the Gospel - maybe in an unexpected way that you haven't considered before. Let God surprise you! And, be ready to say "Yes" to His call.
