Vision Night – If you missed the Vision Night last Sunday and would like to know what was covered, please go to as we have uploaded the audio and it is available for listening. Copies of the 2011 Grace Report ( a synopsis of the ministry events in 2011) are available on the tables in the narthex. This resource will help speak into the audio prior to listening. It is your elder team’s desire to communicate clearly about the vision of Grace. If, after listening to the audio and reading the Grace Report, you have any questions or would like clarification on anything that was covered, please contact the church office @ 547-0065 or

Men’s Training — *NEW FORMAT* : Our bi-weekly Men’s Training has taken on a new flavor and format. We still meet every other Monday @ 7pm, but instead of in the back rooms, we are in the auditorium. We have started into a new interactive study format that will explore the character of God, the role of the Trinity, the role of man, and many others. Our desire is to get together and interact with God’s Word to learn more about who He is and why it matters that we even know! Join us tomorrow night!

Welcome to Grace Class – If you enjoy coming to Grace and would like to learn more about who we are, where we’ve come from, and what we hold to, we are offering a three-session class on Feb 12, Feb 26 and March 11 (all Sundays) from 6:00-7:30pm here at the church (this is also the class that is required for membership).  Register by signing the sign-up sheet on the table in the narthex .

Biblical Eldership Study: –Do you keep hearing about elder leadership but don’t really understand what is meant when the phrase is used? Come and join us on February 13th @ 7pm to begin a six session in-depth study into what biblical eldership looks like. While this class is a requirement for those men feeling called into the role of eldership, all men at Grace are welcome to attend. See the signup sheet in the narthex for more details. (Cost $30.00)

Porterbrook (March class) — Ever wish you had a better handle on the whole story of Scripture? On March 17th at 7am, Grace is offering a class on just that! There are supplies that you will need and homework that you will need to do in advance, so we need to know by February 11th if you would like to join the class. If you would like to get more details and/or signup, contact the church office @ 547-0065 or and ask for Danny Wright. Cost for the class is $25.
