Hi, Grace Bible Church!

Here’s a brief rundown of what’s coming up over the next days and weeks at Grace:

Upcoming Events

If you have children younger than school age, please join us for an informal time of fellowship with other moms and their kids. Meet at the Kooistra’s, 62959 Mimosa Dr. tomorrow (Friday, October 4th) from 9-11 am. For more info, contact Heidi at heidi@gracebibleofbend.org.

Beginning this Sunday, we’ll have the opportunity to provide Christmas gifts for the children of Orphanages of Kenya, one of our supported missions. Stop by the display in the foyer to find out more and choose a gift tag for a child. Thank you for helping to support this wonderful ministry to orphans!

Pick up a free Acts Scripture Journal at the Info Booth! From the publisher: ESV Scripture Journals pair the entirety of individual books of the New Testament with lightly lined blank pages opposite each page of the biblical text, allowing readers to take extended notes or record insights and prayers directly beside corresponding passages of Scripture. This edition features the book of Acts, and is thin and portable—great for personal Bible reading and reflection, small-group study, or taking notes through a sermon series.

Our Community Groups are meeting again in various locations throughout Bend and Sisters! If you have not yet connected to a group, we’d encourage you to check out the flyer and map available at the Info Booth, or click the link below for helpful information on the different groups.


Grace Women’s Ministry would like to invite women to a new weekly informal gathering to help us better get to know our sisters at Grace Bible Church. We’ll walk at Pine Nursery Park, starting on the east end by the soccer fields on Wednesdays at 12:00 p.m. Come if you are a fast walker, come if you are slow. Feel free to bring children or pets. If you have any questions, please contact Heidi at 541-241-6367.

Our 2019 Women’s Retreat at Washington Family Ranch will be October 18th-20th, and will bring together women from a number of Acts29 Northwest churches! Please join us for a time of refreshment, encouragement, and renewal. Registration closes next Wednesday, October 9th! Click the link below for more information and to register.


Join us for a four-part video seminar with Paul Tripp, where he will show you how to improve your marriage by implementing healthy habits and eliminating toxic ones. After each video, we’ll have a time for discussion questions to help you and your spouse practically make progress. Find out more and register at at the link below.

October Missionary Highlight | Arlan & Cathy Mendell

Arlan & Cathy Mendell and Pastor Bonface 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 the gospel along with a solid Christian education. Orphanages of Kenya attempts to give these children the schooling and the Christian-based faith they need to succeed.
