Fifteenth Anniversary Celebration
The fifteenth anniversary of King of Grace Church is coming this September! To celebrate, we’ll be having a special anniversary Sunday on September 10th. There will be a special service, followed by a cookout with bouncy house in the backyard. King of Grace will be providing meat and buns for grilling and a cake! We are asking for members and attenders to bring a side dish or dessert to help contribute to the meal.
Potluck & Church Family Meeting – September 24th
Mark it on your calendars now! There will be a church family meeting after service, September 24th. We will be discussing business items and will vote in a new budget as well. Please plan on attending to vote if you are a member.
As usual, we will have a potluck before the meeting so please bring a dish to share with everyone!
Yard Sale Coming Up – Mark Your Calendars!
Mark your calendars for a King of Grace Yard Sale! We’ll be having a yard sale Saturday, September 30th to help raise money for a new sign for the front yard. So get ready to clean out your closets! Due to storage space at the church, we will only be accepting items on Saturday morning. If you’d like to help out that Saturday, please see Micki Haavisto.
New Ladies’ Bible Studies
Tuesday Ladies’ Bible Study – starting September 12th at 9:15, meets every other week at King of Grace
This is a Bible Study that will discuss women of the Bible. There are women all throughout scripture who teach us about God’s holiness and power and even about his sense of humor. In Wicked Women of the Bible by Ann Spangler tells the stories of twenty wicked and wicked good women in greater detail. The stories of these women of the Bible reveal a God who is not above it all but who stoops down to meet us where we are in order to extend his love and mercy.
Saturday Ladies’ Bible Study – starting September 9th at 9:30, 2nd and 4th Saturday at 16 Alpine Drive, Haverhill
Join us as we study what the Bible teaches about womanhood. We will use the Good Book Guide to Biblical womanhood, a ten week study that digs into scripture. We will meet each 2nd and 4th Saturday from 9-10:30 at Peggy Buckley’s home. All ladies, including mom’s and daughters welcome!
Sign ups for all studies are in the Judson Room.
