Because of the glorious Lord Jesus Christ, true life now—and eternal life forever—is yours to know and enjoy. What the Scripture reveals about Him is worth more than all knowledge, all riches, and all happiness in this world.Follow Grace Church's Pulpit Ministry
Last week, Grace Church hosted its third fellowship picnic of the summer season with lots of fun activities and food for young and old(er) alike. The theme was Raising the Bar where a hotdog and sausage feast, including various toppings, were the highlight of the eating frenzy followed by generous portions at an ice cream social with mega topping choices. The day featured beautiful weather once again, and while we continue to marvel at God’s goodness in giving us unseasonably favorable weather, we ultimately are grateful He continues to allow us to meet and fellowship—the true spotlight of any of these picnics. Also, not to be outdone by eating festivities, there was a limbo contest that all age groups could enjoy… and many did just that.
Of course, we also experienced some sadness as we said good-bye, or better yet “see you soon,” to our many college-aged loved ones. Sarah, Katie Cr., Shellby, Stan, Amy, Katie Ch., Alysia, and Daniel headed to school, so we will not see their faces on a regular Sunday basis. Hopefully, we’ll be able to see them when they come back for semester breaks or full-time jobs! We also had the opportunity to thank and honor Katie Ch. and Alysia for their faithful and encouraging service every Sunday evening as they ministered to the younger children. It is a wonderful reminder of God’s continued graciousness and kindness of giving children to us to raise, and then to see them grow and mature to form their own lives.

A BBQ Sauce competition judged by a [self-proclaimed] hillbilly and an old west lawman, and won by a German sauce — what a world we live in!
This quote from Tim Knots, one of our elders, says it all. The second fellowship picnic was a smashing success—due in part to record attendance, some of the most amazing pulled pork contributions, and a BBQ sauce competition which took on a life of its own. Read more
Below is about a two-minute video of an artsy yet truthful perspective on why studying theology matters. I hope you’ll take a minute (or two) to check it out. This is appropriate for any age. My six-year-old loved it. It’s in English regardless of what’s written. (HT::Bijbelgemeente Ebenezer: a great church in Belgium)
