“My wife Sue and I were looking for a church 20 years ago. We came across Grace - it was kind of a no-brainer - and we still keep coming to Grace even though we live about a half hour away.” – Mike G.

Grace Bible Study Days 2019
Aug. 13-15, 2019, 6-8 p.m. 
Tuesday - Wednesday - Thursday
Grace Center Great Hall
250 E. Juneau. Ave. 

Join Pastor Bondow, Pastor Hackmann, Pastor Huebner, Pastor Strong, Minister of Discipleship Drew Carter and your Grace family Aug. 13-15, 2019 for three days of fun-filled fellowship and faith-building. This year attendees have three studies to choose from!

Seeing Stars: Family Leadership with Abraham & Sarah
At the top of the family tree for God’s chosen nation, Abraham and Sarah were led to see the stars of God’s promises as their orientation for life. Their lives are opened up to us in Genesis (warts and all), leaving us many key lessons in family leadership with its challenges and goals under God.

Lost & Found: Seeking the spiritually lost
There is great joy and relief in finding what was lost. Imagine the rejoicing in heaven that happens when lost sinners are found. A walk through Luke 15, the great “Lost” chapter of the Bible, will explore the challenges, the focus, and the joys of finding the lost. 

Joy in Jesus: Finding Joy in All Situations with Paul and the Philippians
Could your life use more joy? With so much hardship, suffering and pain in the world, isn’t it nice when pure joy comes? The birth of a baby, the acceptance of a marriage proposal, the safe return of the deployed soldier – these moments are easy to celebrate, but what about a regular day? What about the days that are dark? There’s plenty to mourn about. This world has more than enough tears. But, in Jesus we can rejoice no matter what. At the feet of the Apostle Paul and with the power of the Holy Spirit, we can gain a heavenly perspective that allows us to and motivates us to “Rejoice in the Lord Always!”

Dinner is served beginning at 6 p.m., with studies starting at 7 p.m. The dinner menu is as follows:

Tuesday: Baked Ziti, with salad and assorted dessert bars
Wednesday: Enchilada Night, with Spanish Rice and ice cream sandwiches
Thursday: BBQ Pulled Pork, with coleslaw, potato salad, and assorted cookies

Childcare is provided for children 3 and under, with fun Bible stories and crafts offered for children 4 and up.
Sing-a-longs and dessert to follow the studies each night.
