At Grace, we are a little church with the power to make a huge impact for the kingdom. We received a request from the Ministry Council for support to our Philippines Missionaries. They are asking that we pack offering boxes for the Loaves and Fishes Ministry. Boxes will need to be collected on November 18th and will be distributed on November 4th. We have to do what we can while we can. Let’s get behind this effort and help to spread the Gospel to those Filipino Christians who are in need. For more information, you can visit: cpcmc.org/mmr/loaves
We have a special little man in our church named Jesse. A few weeks ago, the doctors at The University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) Cardiac Unit found that Jesse has to have open heart surgery this month. Please keep Jesse and his parents Soshia Nicole Juarez Ruiz and her husband in your prayers. If the Lord leads you to donate, please do. They will have to take off 2 weeks during the surgery. The GoFundMe page link is here: Jesse’s Fund. Jesus said in Matthew 25:34-40 “34“Then the King will say to those on His right, ‘Come, you who are blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. 35‘For I was hungry, and you gave Me something to eat; I was thirsty, and you gave Me something to drink; I was a stranger, and you invited Me in; 36naked, and you clothed Me; I was sick, and you visited Me; I was in prison, and you came to Me.’ 37“Then the righteous will answer Him, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry, and feed You, or thirsty, and give You something to drink? 38‘And when did we see You a stranger, and invite You in, or naked, and clothe You? 39‘When did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to You?’ 40“The King will answer and say to them, ‘Truly I say to you, to the extent that you did it to one of these brothers of Mine, even the least of them, you did it to Me.’ Let us remember this family and show love to them during this trying time.

Grace Community Church has a good relationship with the Montgomery Biscuits and we enjoy the fellowship and fun that a good baseball game creates. We have 40 tickets, at $5.00 per ticket for the game on August 27th at 6:35. This is on a Monday night. What better way to wind down from a stressful Monday than with peanuts and Cracker Jacks? There are also two tickets for the Owner's Box for which we will conduct a drawing. The owner's box tickets include free food and an air-conditioned seat. See Karla McGhee to purchase tickets!
A new Sunday School class geared towards 12-up youth is now underway! This is an exciting development and a response to the blossoming youth group. If you have a son or daughter in this age group, please bring them out! The class is taught by Brother Michael Moseley.

We have collected tons of cool stuff and we will continue to serve the community in the way that God leads. See Eddie and/or Tiffany Thomas for details or if you want to volunteer.

The summer hiatus is over and we will start a new series tonight, June 20th, at 6:30PM discussing and discovering the Kingdom of God. This will be an in-depth look at what Jesus often described but never really defined in concrete terms. The beauty of scripture is that those things that are not necessarily concrete, with enough scriptural evidence, become not only real but transformative. Please join us. The Bible Study will also stream via Facebook Live. The Handout is available on the Bible Study/Sermon Notes page of the website.
