We’re approaching the halfway point of this blazing Summer! Our time is so precious on Sundays, there’s not enough time for me to tell you all that’s going on. This is a space for occasional updates on special events, announcements, reports on World Missions, etc.
THANK YOU: SUNDAY SCHOOL TEACHERS
Each Sunday at Grace, we have age-appropriate instruction in God’s Word! Like many of you, I’m especially thankful for the love and attention these precious servants invest each week.
Your current regular Sunday School teachers from Pre-K to Adults are:
Esther Goldstein (PreK - 3rd)
Sarah Head (4th - 8th)
Pastor Norman Lee (Adult)
Your rotating Children’s Church leaders are Kiley Thiel, Pastor Norman Lee, Bill & Durleen Odom, and Mark Peskir. There is a whole team that rotates to care for our smallest children - I’ll feature them soon, too!
I would also like to thank:
Everyone who helps pitch in for our Sundays on the Porch. From setup to teardown, thanks to everyone.
The Halls for hosting a beautiful drop-in with delicious desserts last Sunday (7/14) for my family to spend some precious time with so many of you.
UPDATES FROM THE PAST COUPLE WEEKS
Thoughts from Sunday (21-July)
The text and sermon this past Sunday was incredibly evangelistic. I would ask that you pray for much fruit as a result from that. No doubt, even among our number assembled on Sunday there were some who have put their confidence in all manner of things other than Christ for their right standing with God.
I’m so very thankful for the worship team and for Julia’s leadership. That song, “How Deep The Father’s Love” has continued to resonate in my soul since the weekend. If you want a little more insight into that, or to read those lyrics again, Stuart Townend’s site has a nice piece on it. CLICK HERE: HOW DEEP THE FATHER’S LOVE FOR US.
It was such a delight to hang out with the 8 people who finished the class over the last 2 weeks. They are exploring the next steps toward membership at Grace Covenant Church. Please continue to pray for them as they’re on this pathway. We’ll have another class in the Fall - be watching for that.
Praise the Lord for the group of 13 students plus 2 leaders from West Cabarrus Church that came to GCC on Thursday morning of this week to serve. Half of them worked with Faith, Hope, & Love to help prepare their space for the upcoming semester. The other half walked around the LightRail stop and surrounding area to personally invite our neighbors who were out and share the Gospel with anyone that leaned in. 42 people were engaged and invited to church.
Let’s go make disciples…together,
-Pastor Chad A. Miller
