(If you would like to be baptized, but October 23 is not a good date for you, please let us know as well.)
Nursery Meeting: If you currently work in the nursery or are interested in learning more about what goes on there each Sunday, we will be hosting an informational meeting at Sweet101 (537 N Broadway, Greenville, OH) on October 24th. Please come and be informed about how you can either get involved or learn more about how to serve our body better in your current position! (Flyers available on the narthex table)

Communion: We invite you to come and celebrate the Lord’s death, burial and resurrection on November 20th at 6pm by attending our communion service. If you know Christ as your Savior, we invite you to join those of us that call Grace our home in remembering the cost of our reconciliation with God.

SOMA Community (Springfield, OH): Pray for Dave Black as he makes the transition into fully supported ministry in the Springfield area. Pray that their house churches would be active, vibrant in the Gospel and motivated to see the fame of Christ magnified in their communities. Pray that they do not make community an idol but that Christ would be the center of all that they do and say. Pray for the strength of their leadership both in their house churches and in their newly formed elder team. Pray that potential upcoming changes would be communicated well and that the body would be receptive to their new elder’s shepherding.
The Bridge (Tipp City, OH): Pray for Ron Sheranko as he leads the way in a church plant that is forming in the Tipp City area. Pray that their hearts would be open to the Lord’s leading and that they would find their true joy in Christ, not just in a ‘new’ thing. Pray that the Gospel takes deep root in the Tipp City area and that the Lord would use them mightily to bear much fruit for the kingdom and fame of Christ.
