[REVISED] From Pastor Peter 13-Sep-2013


(This is a revised version of an earlier post. Please see highlighted revisions below.)

Dear Grace Family,

This Sunday: Small Groups!

Most families have traditions of some sort, and our church family is no different!  Every September, we kick off our Small Group ministry season by dedicating a sermon and a Sunday to the topic of Small Groups.

Just about every Sunday at GFC, Small Groups are mentioned and you are encouraged to plug into one.  I think it's important for you to realize that this isn't just our "thing" at GFC.  This isn't just something we're really into just because...well...that's just what we do.  We're passionate about Small Groups because of what we see in God's Word, and that's what I hope to highlight for you as we look at a variety of Scriptures to build a solid foundation as to why Small Groups truly are the heartbeat of our church.

Not in a Small Group?  This sermon is for you.

Already in a Small Group?  This sermon is also for us, as I'll seek to present application points to us as we look forward to our time Small Groups once again this year.  I look forward to our time together this Sunday.

Save the Date!  Sun, 29-Sep - "Connect"

New to our church family?  This is for you.  A casual, informal opportunity to interact with other newbies, some key church leaders, and hear about what God is doing among us.  And, we'll give you a free lunch, too!  It all takes place after church on Sun, 29-Sep, in the Community Center just downstairs from the movie theater.  Save the date now and click HERE to sign up so (we know how many to plan for).  Hope to see you there!

Baptism, G4U and more

I'm thankful to God that although GFC Newport is still "new," it's not as new as it once was (stunning logic, I know).  We have our hiccups and bumps in the road, but SO many things run SO much smoother now than they did back when we launched.  Since God has brought us this far, I'm actively looking to take us to the next level, and add-on things to our church that we've not yet done before, such as "Grace For You" (G4U), baptism classes and more.  Pray for me as I work out these details, and I'll be sure to let you know how you can help, pray more specifically, and will let you know what the Lord brings about for us as we move ahead.  I'm excited to see how it all works out!

Thanks for being a part of GFC Newport, friends.  I can't wait to be back with you on Sunday.

Love in Christ

Pastor Peter
