Hi, Grace Bible Church!
Here’s a brief rundown of what’s coming up over the next days and weeks at Grace:
This Sunday we’re excited to begin a new study in the book of Ruth. We’d encourage you to read ahead in preparation, and to watch the video below to see a synopsis of the story and the various themes.
During the service this Sunday we will be commissioning new missionaries to Slovenia, Josh and Kristen Morneau. Josh and Kristen will be integrated into a local church where they’ll disciple and equip young Slovene nationals to be tomorrow’s leaders. The primary way they’ll do this is through a relational ministry, called Fusion, that uses music as a tool to reach and disciple young people. Josh and Kristen will be based out of the capital city, Ljubljana, where they’ll spend their first year doing language study and helping at the local church. The best way to stay up to date with what’s going on with Josh & Kristen is through their Facebook page and their monthly newsletter. Email Kristen to be added to the newsletter.
Christmas in October | September 30 – October 28
This month we’ve had the opportunity to provide Christmas gifts for the children of Orphanages of Kenya, one of our supported missions. This will be the last Sunday to stop by the display in the foyer to choose a gift tag for a child. The gifts for Christmas will include needed new clothing, special projects, equipment, and monthly sponsorships. We’re so excited to be able to support this ministry of caring for orphans!

October Missionary Highlight | Orphanages of Kenya
Arlan and Cathy Mendell direct Orphanages of Kenya, a small, non-profit ministry with a passion to care for needy children. In Kenya there is poverty and hunger beyond Western thought, and thousands of innocent children are affected by the diseases that have stripped them of their mothers and fathers. The mission of the orphanage is to rescue these children and to ensure that they have a chance to survive in this world despite the neglect and the harsh conditions that they have faced. The orphanage, nicknamed “The Promised Land,” provides the children with a warm and comfortable home. They are given clothes to wear, three meals a day, are provided with caretakers who love them, and most importantly, are given a solid Christian education. Orphanages of Kenya attempts to give these children the schooling and the Christian-based faith they need to succeed.
