Hi, Grace Bible Church!
Here’s a brief rundown of what’s coming up over the next days and weeks at Grace:
We’re collecting bottles filled with donations for Pregnancy Resource Centers of Central Oregon. Visit the table in the lobby to pick up a bottle and return it by June 16th!
We’re excited to have child dedications coming up again during our Sunday service on June 16th! This is a time where parents pledge to raise their children up “in the discipline and instruction of the Lord,” and where the church family promises to support the parents in their efforts. If you are interested in dedicating your child, email firstname.lastname@example.org.

June Missionary Highlight | Justin & Tamara Reimer
Justin and Tamara Reimer have a deep affection for seeing the gospel of Christ transform the lives of people impacted by disability. Prior to having children, the Reimers were preparing to be missionaries in Russia. Their first child, Elisha, was born with Down Syndrome and they began to invest in the disability community that they became a part of, ultimately founding The Elisha Foundation. God has graciously brought the calling to cross-cultural missions together with their passion for disability outreach by advancing their family to Ukraine. There they’ve built a team to serve those with special needs, and recently they were able to open the Imago Dei Center for People with Disabilities where they host many church-based outreaches, as well as service for those affected by disability.
