WHAT GOD'S DONE | WHERE WE ARE GOING | HOW YOU CAN BE A PART


God did some amazing things through Grace Community Church in 2016! In fact, God loves to show up and show off through His church and He did that in some expected and unexpected ways last year. There is never a dull moment when you pursue the things of God! As you look through this booklet, I want to encourage you to look at what your involvement was last year. Were you part of a group? Did you form new relationships? Did you start giving financially, start volunteer, pray, go on a mission trip, or get intentional with your family? Many of you did; in fact, more than ever before, which is one reason why God showed up and showed off the way He did. Grace has some big dreams as we move into 2017 and beyond: dreams that we know God will show up for in whatever way He chooses. Our responsibility is to show up as well. I was reminded of a quote from Augustine – “Without God, we cannot, and without us, He will not.” We whole-heartedly believe that God is going to do incredible & miraculous things through His Church-this church, which is you and me, but we have to “show up” in every way that He asks us too. I can’t wait to see and hear how God is going to work through you and show up in amazing ways in the coming years! Thanks for taking this journey and chasing the dreams that God is revealing for us! On the journey together, Darren Stewart Lead Pastor
