Our Women’s Group that usually takes place every other Tuesday is on a monthly schedule through the summer. We’ll be reading A Praying Life by Paul Miller and discussing, snacking, praying together on the dates below. Location varies, so be sure to email Josie or send us a facebook message for the address!
We love Grandview and we love taking part in its Summer-time activities! Here are a few dates to put on your calendar:
May 5th : Grandview Garage Sale. Remember that pile of goods in your basement that you’ve been meaning to sell or donate for a while now? Bring it on over to the Haack residence on May 5th. We’ll be hosting a collective sale from 9am-early afternoon, all proceeds going to the Open Door Art Studio. It’s a fun day, so carve out plenty of time to walk the community and don’t forget some change for the multiple lemonade-brownie-cookie stands that you’re bound to run into!
June 5-July 31 :Music on the Lawnat Grandview Library. Every Tuesday evening from 7:30-8:30pm. Bring your blankets, some snacks and your family for a fun evening of friends and musical entertainment.
It is a beautiful thing to know that throughout the week members of Grace Central are gathering in eachother’s homes, sharing food and drink, fellowship and prayer requests as they discuss each Sunday’s scripture passage and its personal applications. Home Groups are the life blood of our church and we encourage you to get plugged into one if you haven’t already. It’s a way that we share life together on a whole new level.
Don’t forget that all of the sermon audio from the series can be found at the Grace Central website. We’re wrapping up our study of Ecclesiastes this Sunday, March 4th at 5pm and would love to have you there. It’s been a challenging yet encouraging study as we’ve been exhorted to have a realistic joy in this life. Join us
We hope the New Year has begun well for you! Just a reminder that our home groups are now in full swing, meeting regularly on a weekly or bi-weekly basis, discussing the previous Sunday’s sermon in detail and joining together for a time of prayer. It is our sincere hope that everyone become involved in a home group as it is the life-blood of our church; a way to invest in each others’ lives and grow as a body in Christ. More information about location and time for the various home groups can be found in the Sunday bulletin.
Also - wanted you to be aware that all sermon audio (both Short North and Grandview locations), can be found on the main website here. This is especially helpful if you want to review before a home group or happen to miss the previous Sunday.
Looking forward to our time of fellowship tomorrow; 5p.m. at the Hyatt.
As we all settle back in after the holiday’s, we hope you’ll join us this Sunday evening as we continue our study of Ecclesiastes - written by Solomon, a wise and experienced man, we’ve been looking at what it means to live with a realistic hope.
We’ll also be launching our Home Groups this week and encourage you to find a time/location that works best for you and drop in. We like to say that we are not a church with Home Groups, but rather a church of Home Groups; it is the life blood of the community as we meet in smaller groups and share life together. More details about each group will be provided this Sunday; childcare is offered at a few locations.
"I believe like a child that suffering will be healed and made up for, that all the humiliating absurdity of human contradictions will vanish like a pitiful mirage, like the despicable fabrication of the impotent and infinitely small Euclidean mind of man, that in the world’s finale, at the moment of eternal harmony, something so precious will come to pass that it will suffice for all hearts, for the comforting of all resentments, for the atonement of all the crimes of humanity, for all the blood that they’ve shed; that it will make it not only possible to forgive but to justify all that has happened." — Fyodor Dostoyevsky
Join us Sunday evening as continue our study of Ecclesiastes and what it means to have a realistic hope. 5pm at the Hyatt; childcare provided.
Ecclesiastes has been called a “Monday-Friday book.” It takes a look at the world around us, the wonder which it provokes and the simultaneous letdown we experience because it is not enough to completely fulfill or satisfy. It’s so easy to seek from the world that which it cannot provide. C. S. Lewis said “If you live for the next world, you get this one in the deal. If you live for this world, you loose them both.”
Join us this Sunday evening as we continue to learn what it means to stop reaching for ourselves and start receiving from the only one who can truly satisfy.
We are so grateful for the support and encouragement that we received in light of last week’s official launch and so look forward to another evening of worship, fellowship and a deeper look into the book of Ecclesiastes this Sunday at the Hyatt. As always, childcare is provided. See you at 5p.m.!
