Grace Weekly

 

  1. Beds & Bears Family Serving Day
  2. In partnership with Friends of Westchase, Walnut Bend Elementary, Paul Revere Middle School, Emerson Elementary, and Sleep in Heavenly Peace, Grace is having a Beds & Bears Family Serving Day! This Saturday morning, March 2, we will come together to build twin beds for children who attend school in our community and don’t have a bed to sleep in at night.

    UPDATE: We are excited to share that WE HAVE A FULL CREW to build beds on March 2, but there are some available spots to DELIVER beds and bedding, and we have other ways you can help out that morning, too--please reach out to Kristy Elmore to learn more about ways you can help with bedding, hospitality, or registration!

    UPDATE 2: We are more than halfway toward our funding goal! Please help sponsor beds for our Westchase children—you may contribute HERE

    We still have a few slots open to deliver beds. Following the morning build session, the beds will be packaged with boards, nuts/bolts, mattresses, and bedding (and a bear), then loaded in vehicles (trucks, trailers, SUV’s are great!) and delivered to families in our community – mostly zip codes 77077, 77063, and 77042. This is a beautiful opportunity for families to share in together, to meet and connect with neighbors in our Westchase community.

    Sign up HERE to DELIVER beds on Saturday, March 2

    If you would like to help support the financial cost of a bed, you may do so HERE.


  3. Holy Week Schedule & Lily Dedications
  4. Mark your calendar and plan to be a part of the culmination of the Lent season, finishing with the joyous celebration of the risen savior. Invitation cards are available in the lobby that you may give to your neighbors to encourage them to join you throughout Holy Week. 

    LENT DEVOTIONAL
    Prepare your hearts by taking time each day to read your Grace Lent Devotional, in your email each morning.

    EASTER LILIES
    In celebration of Easter, please consider dedicating an Easter lily to remember or honor someone you love. Dedications will be accepted through Monday, March 25 and may be made online HERE. Flowers you have dedicated will be available to pick up after the 11 a.m. worship service on Easter Sunday, March 31.

    LENTEN PRAYER VIGIL
    As we enter into the final days of the Lenten season, we encourage you to join us in a 24-hour prayer vigil. Our goal is to have at least one person praying for our world, community, and church from 8 p.m. on Good Friday on March 29 through 8 a.m, Easter Sunday, March 31. Sign up for your spot HERE.

    GRACE'S GREATEST BAKER
    We know we have some pretty fantastic bakers in our congregation! Last year's competition was tough--can you take on last year's winner, Maggie Gardiner? Whether you want to bake something new, or you have a tried and true, passed-down-from-generations recipe in your family, we would love to enjoy your delicious treats on Easter morning! Only one will be named Grace's Greatest Baker. Sign up HERE.

GOOD NEWS OF THE WEEK

We celebrate the things that we have offered to God that are bearing fruit- We celebrate what God is doing!

You may have noticed some construction on the campus over the past few months. Grace School is nearing the completion of the Richmond Building remodel, which will provide the school with an Innovation Lab, reception area, admissions/business suites, conference rooms, and a community gallery. A beautiful new sign went up this week and we celebrate together this growth and renovation along Ella Lee! We can’t wait to see all the learning and fun that happens in those new walls!
