Welcome, Fall for Families 2017!
Whether you find yourself longing for the warmth of summer,
September is here with the signs of fall. We're feeling the
cooler temperature, seeing leaves beginning to change, and
noticing even the smell in the air is different. With September
comes the shift from summer into full-school mode for many,
including our church family life.
Fall sports and
activities give us life and help us to experience delight. You
may be sporting new backpacks or shoes and so you're feeling the
excitement of a new academic year. Fall for Families at Grace
will be inviting us to engage our senses in and out of our
church building. Each month we will offer a Family Fellowship
Event aimed to create the time and space to be community
together. In September, we will swim at the Cross's pool and
play outdoor games. In October, we hope to visit Loving Acres
farm. In November, we will play games and make and share meal
You will notice new Worship Bags featuring our
church logo hanging near each entrance into worship. These will
be filled with Worship Enrichment for children to use during our
services. The aim of these is that they are returned at the end

wants your own bag to fill, we will be offering these for
Looking ahead, please know that there will be
integrated approaches to our Welcome Table gatherings on
Wednesday nights, music, art, and story filling our Sunday
School hour for our PreK+Kindergarden Class and 2nd-5th grade
Class. We hope to see everyone joining into the gatherings and
fellowship activities we've planned. AND all are welcome. If you
long to play like a child, come. If you want to explore the
world through being present to our families, come.
some of our faith traditions continue, new spaces to engage our
hands in mission and ministry will begin to take shape. It's an
exciting time for our Families and wider church Family at Grace
Baptist Church. Let us love and serve the Lord as one.
