Midweek Advent Worship at Grace—Join Grace for midweek Advent services, either in-person or online! The remaining services are Wednesdays, Dec. 9 and 16, at 12:10-12:40 p.m. (perfect for anyone working in-person downtown) and 6:30 p.m. (which will also be live streamed via YouTube).

Divine Call Returned—Pastor Caleb Kurbis, currently serving Living Savior in Asheville, North Carolina, returned his call to Grace. Please keep Grace in your prayers, and watch your inboxes and future GraceNotes as to when the next call meeting will take place.

God Answers the Big Questions of Life: Dec. 2020 Sunday Morning Bible Class—Is the end the beginning? The Bible book of the prophet Malachi answers, “Yes!” The end of the Old Testament is the beginning of the New. What a perfect bridge from one to the other—from the end of one church year to the beginning of another, from End Times to Advent! Join Grace in-person or virtually via YouTube.

Dec. 6                       Why do the wicked prosper?                   
Dec. 13                     What does it mean to return to God?
