Bible says it this way: “Two are better than one because they have a good
return for their work.” This is especially true when it comes to the topic service.
Join us next Sunday for 40 Days of Community when we take on the topic, We
Serve Better Together. Read Paul’s teaching from Philippians 2:19-30 to
Daylight Saving Time: Don’t forget to “fall back” this Saturday

Communion Instructions
You do not have to be a member of Grace to participate in communion. All
Christians are invited to come forward, row by row, to participate. Simply take a
wafer, dip it into the cup and partake. If you prefer being served in your chair,
raise your hand at the conclusion of communion and the servers will come to
you. If you are not taking communion today, just remain in your chair.
Prayer Teams are available at the exits during communion if you would like
someone to pray with you.
Thank You
