WOW What A Week!

This coming week is going to be powerful. It starts on Wednesday evening with Reggie White, former defensive end with the Green Bay Packers. You may not be a big football fan, but there are probably some kids in your neighborhood who would love to see Reggie. Invite them! RUMOR HAS IT that Jess Settles and Dean Oliver of the Iowa Hawkeyes basketball team will be here. Also in attendance will be presidential hopeful, Gary Bauer, and Evangelist Rick Amato. The service starts at 7 p.m., but GET HERE EARLY if you want to get a seat.

SPEAKING OF RICK AMATO, join us Thursday through Sunday for a powerful week of Revival. Rick’s messages are targeted at those who are hurting (emotionally, physically, or spiritually) and need the healing message of the Cross. Do you know someone who needs a little hope in their life? Invite them to hear Rick’s messages. Again, the services start at 7 p.m.

NEXT SUNDAY MORNING, Rick will preach his “Y2K and the Second Coming of Christ” sermon. This provocative, timely message is a refreshing and thought-provoking approach on how to deal with the Y2K phenomenon. At the same time, Rick’s sermon will set the pace for coping with the growing concerns of millions of people everywhere.

ATTENTION LADIES, you need to purchase your tickets to this year’s Mother’s Day Brunch on Saturday, May 8 at 10 a.m. The theme of this year’s brunch is “The Power of Love.” Tickets are $8 per person and can be purchased at the Welcome Center.

BABY DEDICATION is just around the corner (May 2). If you have a baby born during the last 12 months (or an older child who has never been dedicated to the Lord), be sure to participate in this important service. You can let us know of your interest by Emailing Pastor Colyer at jcolyer@gracehome.com.

FINALLY, we are looking into a new summer program for Kids called Summer Sensation. Designed to fill the gap between school years, this “Day Camp” would begin on June 7 and run every day, Monday through Friday, until August 20. The cost would be approximately $85 per child per week. The Day Camp hours are from 6:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. If you (or someone you know) is interested in more information on Summer Sensation, please contact the church as soon as possible (info@gracehome.com). We need your name and the number and ages of your children.



Our web site continues to grow as we add more and more information. The Online Sermon archive is now “online” and you can listen to Pastor Nelms’ important message on Revival from December 27, 1998. You can also listen to Gene Wolfenbarger’s message, “When Hollywood Says Yes, America Can’t Say No.” There is also information about Grace Church. Next time you’re on the web, surf on by and pay us a visit. We’ll leave the front porch light on for you.
