Our prayer focus this week is youth and children. Please pray for the young people of Grace Church. Pray that they would seek to deepen their relationship with God, have fruitful relationships with their peers, and that there would be godly adult influences in their lives.
Continue to pray for our church family, including: Julian Bosch, Serge Gabriel, Sarah Hansen, Eloise Jordan, Anne Gallo, Anne Ragoonanan, David Bacon, Virginia Jordan, and Rachel Bacon. Pray also for Agar Alcin, Elaine Mehan, John Foster, and Eddie O’Meara, who are unable to attend.

Our Vision & Priorities
Our vision is to become a loving family of disciples who pray, worship, and grow together, serving others and sharing the gospel in our local communities and world.
To work toward this vision, our new priorities are Prayer, Worship, Discipling, Outreach, and Fellowship.
Women in Prayer
As we embrace our vision, prayer is our top priority. One way we will focus on prayer is through the Women in Prayer group. This group will meet before the Sunday service to pray for our church, community, country, world, and each other. The group is open to all women. If you are interested, please contact email@example.com.
Thank you to all those who helped bring in and set up the new chairs in our sanctuary. Thank you also to those who helped with International Sunday. We appreciate all you do to benefit Grace Church.
