From Pastor Peter 6/7/13




Dear Grace Family,

Thanks for coming to Cross the Bridge For Life!

Thanks for coming to and/or praying for the "Cross the Bridge for Life" event!  I had the privilege of speaking there, and then crossing the Purple People Bridge with thousands of other pro-life advocates from the tri-state, and many of them were from GFC Newport and Florence campuses! This was my first time there, and I hope to promote it more next year and get an even greater turnout from our church.  It really was a great time.

This Sunday!

I hope you're looking forward to digging into Romans 3 this week!  It's a critical part of the letter as Paul brings to a close the first major section of the book of Romans (Rom. 1:1-3:20); his closing arguments for God's case against humanity, namely our universal sin problem that separates us from a holy God.  The sermon will focus on Rom. 3:9-20, so consider reading through that portion of Scripture if you want to prepare for the sermon this Sunday.

Counseling & Discipleship Training Conference

Last week I mentioned the Counseling & Discipleship Training (CDT) Conference coming up in the Fall.  It's an excellent time to be taught, trained, and equipped by counselors who love the Lord, His Word, and firmly believe in the sufficiency of Scripture to counsel others.  Whether you ever plan on doing formal counseling or not, you'll be blessed by attending the conference just to hear the teaching that's offered.  All the details can be found HERE so consider registering soon to take advantage of early bird discounts.

Come have lunch w/ us!

The warm weather is here, and God has blessed us with a great meeting place for the past several months.  Our family is looking forward to bringing a picnic lunch with us to church on Sunday, June 23rd, and enjoying the sunshine and riverfront views over in Sawyer Point Park.  We'll bring a blanket and find a piece of grass somewhere between the Purple People Bridge and the Yellow "Big Mac" Bridge (I-471).  Think about joining us!  Bring lunch with you to church, or grab a bite and walk on over (or drive).  It should be a good time. :)  I'm also working on some other Summer activities, outreaches, etc., so keep an eye opened for more details soon, and do pray as I work with others to see how we might best serve.

I'll miss being with you this Sunday as I'm preaching at the Florence campus, but I'll be thinking about & praying for you as I finish preaching in the first service (that's when you'll just be starting).


God bless,

Peter
