Thrive College Cookout

Welcome back college students! Coming up this Saturday at 5:00pm you are invited to a cookout at the McConnells’ (2207 Lott St.). There will be food and games to enjoy together as well as an opportunity to meet some of the leaders at Grace City. Please email any questions to our Pastor for College Ministry, Danny Adams, dadams@gracecityphilly.com.

Redeeming Marriage
Are you engaged to be married? Are you in a serious relationship thinking that marriage is even a possibility some time soon? Are you recently married and wondering if you get it? If you’ve answered yes to any of these questions then we want to invite you to join us for Redeeming Marriage—basics for gospel-empowered married life, a four week premarital/newlywed course beginning this September. This course starts on Wednesday September 3rd at 7pm and will also take place on the 10th, 24th and October 1st. If you plan on attending please sign up online or on an upcoming Sunday at the Information & Resource table.

PPT-membership-sept
Whether you have been attending Grace City for three years or three weeks, join us on Saturdays September 6th and 13th from 9:00am-12:00pm for our upcoming Membership Class. This class is the first step for anyone that is interested in becoming a member of the Northeast congregation of Grace City. During these two Saturdays, Rob Chisholm, Pastor for Music & Spiritual Formation, will be teaching through the Bible’s teachings that call disciples to be committed to a local church and how it describes the role of the local church in the life of a disciple. A continental breakfast will be provided on both days, and lunch will be provided on the 13th. Child care will not be available. If you sign up, please plan on attending both Saturdays. This class will be offered quarterly, which means it will be offered again shortly if this time around does not work for you or your family to attend both meetings. You can sign up online here or on an upcoming Sunday.

Family Dedication Sunday
As parents we must be committed to transferring our love for God and the gospel of Jesus to our kids. This takes a lot of grace! Part of the grace God gives us for this great joy and responsibility comes from the community of the local church. We must help each other transfer the gospel to the next generation. Our next Family Dedication Sunday, which is taking place on Sunday September 14th, is an opportunity to present yourself as parents with your child asking God and the church to partner with you in the adventure of raising our kids to love God and believe the gospel. We are in this together!

Who can participate?

  • Parents who are members or pursuing membership at Grace.
  • Parents whose children have been born within the past year.
