From Pastor Peter 24-Apr-2015

Dear Grace Family,

Please pray for me!
I'm preaching at a retreat for high school seniors at the Catholic school I attended as a teenager.  I'll spend the weekend leading a Small Group, serving in any way I can, and preaching.  If you care to pray at a specific time, I'll be preaching the Gospel at 11:00a tomorrrow (Sat) morning to all in attendance - students, staff & other alumni.  Pray, pray, pray for the Word as I preach it, for the conversations I'll have with others, and for whatever I can do to be salt, light, and a faithful witness to those there.

PIT Crew Emails
By the way, did you know Pastor Brad & I send out PIT Crew Emails about once each month?  "PIT" stands for Pastor's Intercessory Team.  By joining the team, you receive emails from us with prayer requests for us re: ministry, family & personal life.  If you're interested in joining this team, send me an email and we'll get you subscribed.

Important Elders Forum - Save the Date!
As you know, a team of Elders & staff have been meeting regularly, prayerfully considering what might be the best "next steps" to take for our church in Newport.  This past Monday, I presented the fruit of our labors to the Elders at large, and it was unanimously approved. it's time to roll it out and get moving together.  Especially after the great turnout and spirited dialogue we had last time, I think the best way to do that is to have a Forum on Mon, 04-May, 7p at the Florence Campus.  More details to come, but do save the date for now.

This Sunday, Pastor Brad is back in the pulpit talking about the next piece of "basic equipment" needed to live the Christian life; scripture memory (particularly longer passages of Scripture).  Similar to last week, get ready for an emphasis on answers to "why" that we hope will motivate us all to make the practice of working to memorize larger passages of Scripture a part of our spiritual diet.

Have a great weekend, and thanks for praying.

Love in Christ,

Pastor Peter
