From Pastor Peter 5/10/13

Dear Grace Family,

“Let the redeemed of the Lord tell their story…” (Psalm 107:2 NIV)

I hope you enjoyed last Sunday as much as I did.  What a blessing it is to hear of the ways God is at work among us on a Testimony Sunday like we had.  Thanks for being a part of that with me, and thanks especially to those who shared tidbits from their life that gave glory to God.  You’ve enabled us to celebrate what God is doing in your life with you.

Parent/Child Dedication + Communion

As we come together this Sunday to worship the Lord, we’ll take some time to recognize the newest littlest additions that God has brought among us – babies!  I’ve said it before, and it’s worth repeating and recognizing: Jesus loves children.  We live in a world that shows its increasing disdain for the youngest among us, but the local church should always be a place where all people – even teeny tiny ones – are welcomed and celebrated.  I hope you’re looking forward to not only celebrating their presence among us, but praying for the parents whom God has entrusted them to.  It doesn’t “take a village” to raise a child in the discipline and instruction of the Lord, but what a blessing it is to have the people of God celebrating, supporting, encouraging and praying for parents who have the daunting task of pleasing God in their parenting.  Join us this Sunday as we seek to do just that.

Lastly, but certainly not least, we’ll remember in a special way the very crux of our faith by celebrating the Lord’s Supper.  This solemn yet celebratory remembrance proclamation of Christ’s death on our behalf is a privilege for the people of God to enjoy together, and I’m looking forward to doing that with you once again this Sunday.

Much love,

Pastor Peter
