From Pastor Peter 08-Mar-2013

Dear Grace Family,

Thanks for praying for me while I was away at a meeting with other Campus Pastors within our denomination!  It was a great time of networking, sharing ideas, and learning from one another. It was great to be able to share what God is doing at GFC Newport even in our infancy.

Another "Mammoth Meetup!"

I've truly missed being with you these past two Sundays!  Sooooooo...wanna hang out?  Yes, I'm serious.  I'm heading out to eat at one of my favorite Newport hangouts after church this Sunday, Mammoth Cafe, and thought it might be fun to pack out the joint together. :)  It's just two blocks away from the Levee at 515 Monmouth Street.  Great coffees, teas, and a nice lunch menu (sandwiches, panini, muffins, scones...all that jazz).  I recommend the Chicken Salad w/ Walnuts & Grapes, or the "Bootlegger" but hey...whatever floats your boat.  Oh, and the fine folks at Mammoth Cafe have agreed to discount your orders this Sunday (especially great for families).  Bring in your sermon outline and get $2 off $15+ orders, and $5 off $20+ orders.  Come by for lunch or just a quick cup of something on your way home.  Hope to see you there!

Daylight Savings Time

Ugh...bad news.  It's "that weekend" again where we lose an hour of sleep. {:-(  Don't forget to set your clocks ahead one hour before you go to bed on Saturday night.  As your Campus Pastor, I'll try my best to get that hour back for you come Fall.  (Yes, I say that or a similar joke every year.)

Help us serve the kiddies!

Looks like we have a need in Children's Ministry coming up.  Could you give us a Sunday or two each month and help us out?  We'll even give you a snazzy name tag and everything.  Click here for details, and let me or Kate know if you have questions.  Thanks for considering!

Sermon + our first Communion Sunday!

This Sunday and the next we’ll jump into an overview of the 21 epistles or letters to the churches that follow the books of Acts, because these letters are the best explanation of what God has done for us – and how this redemption should impact every aspect of our lives.  So in the next two weeks we'll look in summary at the overall ‘gist’ of each one of the 21 epistles in the NT.

Also this Sunday, we'll be sharing Communion together for the first time at GFC Newport!  I'm excited to remember & celebrate what our Savior did for His beloved by sharing the Lord's Supper together.  Consider reading through 1 Cor. 11:23ff to help prepare your heart and mind for this special time together.  I'm looking forward to it.

See you Sunday!

Love in Christ,

Pastor Peter
