Help Families From Ukraine
This is the final weekend to bring supplies that will be distributed to families arriving from Ukraine. We are asking for basic toiletries, stuffed animals, blankets, pre-paid visa cards (for groceries), and other essentials. There is a more complete list by the bins in the foyer, where donations can be placed. Please see Sophia Lanuza if you have any questions.
Our prayer focus this week is on the church. Please pray for Grace Church, for other churches in our local area, as well as in our state, country, and world. Pray for boldness in sharing the Gospel. Pray for unity. Pray for commitment to the Great Commission. Pray for church planting and growth. Pray for church leaders. And pray for church members. May we all be Jesus' witnesses right where we are, and to the ends of the earth.
Continue to pray for our church family, including: Julian Bosch, Serge Gabriel, 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
Prayer is our top priority, and one way we focus on prayer is through the Women in Prayer group. This group is open to all women, and it meets before the Sunday service to pray for our church, community, country, world, and each other. If you are interested, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
