Christ in Youth "Move" conference is for all incoming freshmen through graduating high school students. It is a week of worship, study and fellowship. This year's theme is Contrast. As Christians we are called to stand out; to be different and make a difference. There is a stark contrast between a life lived for the King and one lived for anyone or anything else. What are those differences? How should our lives be distinct? Join us on our Igniter summer trip as we look at John's first letter to find out.

To begin the registration process, either email Pastor Loren at lorenkurtzgcc@gmail.com or print the release form, fill it out, and return it to Pastor Loren with the non-refundable $50 deposit.

Compassion Sunday

 
Compassion Sunday.jpg
 

Compassion Sunday will be an exciting morning at Grace! The whole morning will be focused on what God is doing in and through the church we are partnering with Compassion International to plant in Santa Cruz, Bolivia.

Both before and after the services this morning, you and your family will have an opportunity to look through packets and pick out a child to sponsor. This is the most personal way that you can be involved in this church plant!

For the child in poverty, sponsorship will mean access to food, clean water, medical care, educational opportunities, age-appropriate Bible teaching and you.

Yes, you.

When you choose a child and commit to his or her care and support, you have the power to change everything for that child. Just as God has chosen us, you can choose a child to love and disciple!

Please be praying about participating in what God is doing in Bolivia by signing up to sponsor a child on Sunday, April 22.

God’s calling for women is powerful. This retreat, hosted at Cross Wind Conference Center in Hesston (8036 N Hoover Rd, Hesston, KS) from February 16-17, is an opportunity to intentionally step outside of our daily demands, explore God’s attributes and reflect with each other practical ways to fulfill our calling.

This year, we will have several ladies speaking about different attributes of God! Each speaker has chosen an attribute that relates to her own life. Our schedule is simple; our activities are few. This is a chance to separate yourself from responsibilities and fully engage in your relationship with Christ.

Registration for this event is closed.
