BLESSING AND THE FEAR OF THE LORD

CHURCHES WE PRAYED FOR

Every week during our gatherings we intentionally pray for a number of churches at Grace City, in our city, in our region, and in our world. This last week we prayed for:

  • Grace City Church of Wissinoming as well as asking God to work through our work in the neighborhoods of Frankford and Mayfair.
  • Seven Mile Road Church in the Far Northeast.
  • Christ Church in South Philly. They are a partner church in Sovereign Grace.
  • Grace Church in Bristol, England. They are a partner church in Sovereign Grace

As you read, stop and pray for the spread of the gospel in these churches and their cities.

FAMILY DEDICATION SUNDAY

Our annual Family Dedication Sunday will be taking place at our gathering on September 10th. We wanted to pass along this date because we know that many of you who plan on participating in the dedications this year may want to invite your extended family to join us in this celebration of new life that God has given in the past year. If you wish to have your family participate, please sign up at the Information & Resource table on an upcoming Sunday.

ESL VOLUNTEERS NEEDED

We have an ESL opportunity for you to help reach the nations right here in Northeast Philly! GROW Northeast is an organization that serves our growing international community through a fun and effective ESL program for adults, helping our neighbors and friends to become more proficient in the English language and be prepared for U.S. citizenship. There are now two sites in Northeast Philly, one in Mayfair at Northeast Community Church and one in Fox Chase at Bethany Baptist Church. We have had several people from our church help with ESL classes through GROW over the past few years, and they need more volunteer teachers, teacher assistants, and children’s workers at the Mayfair Site for this coming semester. There are classes on Monday and Wednesday nights, as well as Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday mornings. See Sue DeHart on an upcoming Sunday or email her at grownortheast@gmail.com if you’re interested in volunteering or want to learn more. You can also click the button below for more information about GROW Northeast. Classes start September 13th!

This class is the first step for anyone that is interested in becoming a member of the Northeast congregation of Grace City. During this class, Rob Chisholm, Pastor for Preaching & Leadership, will be going 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.
