The Lord blessed our VBS ministry this summer with several salvation decisions. As we look forward to our Fall children’s ministries through Sunday School and AWANA, we would like to visit and encourage the children to attend and to learn more about Jesus at Grace Baptist Church. We need your help. On Tuesday nights in August (except August 8), we will be personally reaching out to each of their families with personal invitations and packets of information. Would you consider coming with us and inviting these children back to Grace Baptist Church?
Helen M. is hosting a MUMs (Moms Uplifting Moms) group. Its goal is to reach mothers with school-aged children with the Word of God by assisting with devotions and meeting needs. We hope to encourage moms to share, develop Christian fellowship, and attend church. We meet at Helen’s home in Madison Heights on the first Thursday of each month at 7:00 PM. Each month we examine a different woman of the Bible.
